                     "ABOUT THE BOOK"

Dinah, the former Princess of Wonderland Palace, has been chased into the wilds of Wonderland after the brutal murder of her brother and the ruin of her impending crown. Now, as her half-sister Vittiore sits on the throne beside her Father, the brutal King of Hearts, Dinah finds herself alone in the forbidding Twisted Wood with only Morte, a homicidal beast, for company.

Hunted by the King and his army of Cards, Dinah struggles to evade those who long for her head, including Cheshire, the King’s clever advisor, who is slowly tightening his grasp around her. Spurred on by her rising terror, the former Princess finds herself at the center of a web of conspiracy reaching far beyond the Palace and deep into the mysterious Yurkei mountain tribes.
Even with the balance of an entire Kingdom at stake, Dinah knows something that her allies and enemies do not: that the most dangerous conflict of all has already begun as she battles the enticing rage that beckons her ever closer as love slips further from her grasp.

                      "MY REVIEW"

Let me just say Ms. Colleen what an amazing read. Truly I have to add this to my all time favourite list of books. This twisted book that had so many juicy details in it. WOW. The characters fit the scenery of everything. The main charcter was my favourite (Dinah). Her personality was beautifully intelegent. I have never read a story like this and I must read others in this series. Good book to read when your bord and looking for some fun and adventure. This story reminds me of "Ella Enchanted" and "Alice In Wonderland". So many captivating this about this book but my favourite part would have to be "Chapter 12" I quote "All she heard was the crashing and breathing, alternating with each step. Twigs and branches breaking and snapping as she plunged through the Yurkei orchard, far away from Cheshire, far away from everything he had said". Amazing or what.
