Summary

Dorothy Must Die meets Alice in Wonderland!

This is not a story of happily ever after - it's the twisted YA sequel in the origin story of an infamous villain....

The once-future Queen of Hearts, Princess Dinah, has been exiled from Wonderland. Her vicious father, whom she always feared, has framed her for a brutal murder and turned the kingdom against her.

Now hiding in the mysterious Twisted Wood with only her war steed at her side, Dinah is faced with a choice - to leave Wonderland forever or stay and fight for the throne.

A chance encounter with a long-lost enemy of the kingdom brings Dinah more allies than she ever could have imagined. But before battle, Dinah must confront truths about her heart and her destiny - no matter how dark those secrets may be.

Revolution is rising in Wonderland. Dinah's war has begun.

excellent second book in the trilogy

I love these books, I can't wait to get into the third. the narrator does a fantastic job of bringing these books to life and is really engaging. I am so glad I have been listening, it's great to be able to switch off and enter Collen Oakes's world. absolutely brilliant I would highly recommend.

Se noto que era un libro intermedio, pero bueno

Este libro es la segunda parte de la historia del origen de la reina de corazones, y en cierta forma se sintió como si fuese un conector entre el primero y lo que seguramente va a ser el tercero ya que, si bien pasan algunas cosas que alteran la trama, en general no aporta demasiado a la historia.
Lo que si me gustó de este libro fue ver como el personaje de Dinah iba haciéndose cada vez mas fuerte y tomando más carácter, aunque pareciera que cada noticia es un golpe que la lleva un paso para atrás, sobrelleva cada uno saliendo más fuerte. Realmente es un personaje con mucho empuje y me parece que los puntos que la llevan a convertirse en la "malvada reina de corazones" están muy bien presentados en el libro.
Me encanta la forma de escribir de la autora, y su Wonderland realmente me gustó, bien descripto, sin demasiadas adiciones a las frases, puntual pero detallado. Sin duda voy a leer el siguiente para ver en donde termina esta historia!
