Queen of Hearts (The Crown, volume 1)

We rated this book:


This book definitely took me on a fun ride down a new twist on Alice in Wonderland and if you are hungry for the other side of the fairy tales, then this book is a no-brainer. Instead of Alice, we have Dinah, next in line to the throne and her life is mundane. Her story includes her abusive King father, beyond beautiful step sister, who she can’t stand, and her brother, who is literally mad, but she loves very much all live in this elaborately and magically written world filled with many of the characters we are familiar with, like the Cheshire cat and Mad Hatter. It is up to her to figure out the mysteries and not crack under pressure.

The characters in this book kind of mess with your head because you want to envision them one way, but they are twisted into another, into a dark and conflicting world. If you are looking for a longer book with more depth, this isn’t the one, as it’s written to leave you hanging so you’ll read book two, but if you’re looking for a teaser to lead into a series, then you have to read this book. You won’t be let down!
