I just finished reading the first book of a trilogy, called The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor. If you want to find out the real story of happy little Alice in Wonderland, then read this, but be warned, this is not a happy fairy tale, it’s a story about a bloody battle between the white imagination and the black imagination. Alyss (not Alice) is the Princess of Hearts and is the daughter of the Ruler in Wonderland, the Queen of Hearts,
Queen Genevieve. Queen Genevieve’s sister Redd (not Red) became black imagination and came with an army and took over Wonderland taking everything under her control. Alyss, flees but soon has to return to take her rightful place as Queen of Wonderland and a Warrior Queen by fighting with her imagination against her aunt’s imagination.
I really liked the book, finishing it in a few days, my most favorite part was when Alyss was ready to battle with her aunt and her army but didn’t have many people to battle the army, so she creates so many small toy soldiers half an average adult’s height that you can’t see where they end with her imagination in a few seconds.
If you like bloody and adventurous books, then I recommend that you should read this book, The Looking Glass Wars. Please comment on our blog if you have read this book before.
