Well written, adventurous and sexy - this rabbit hole is worth exploring!
To get this out of the way - yes I am friends with the author. She, however, did not approach me or request a review. I bought, read, and completely enjoyed this title of my own volition.
This fascinating mishmash of Victorian morality and sexual identity alongside entertainingly quaint technology runs wonderfully alongside a naughty take on the classic tale. The language use is spot on, immersive, and most importantly, fun to read.
What might at first appear to simply be a cheeky take on an old favorite actually has quite a bit of depth under the hood. From the beginning, we know that Alice is going to discover a lot - a whole, whole lot - about her sexuality and identity on this trip down the rabbit hole. Her journey of self discovery is thoughtfully produced, convincing, and often rather touching.
The other side of this novel, the steamy side, is very steamy indeed. A number of very hot, and lively-written sex scenes are well balanced, and advance the story of Alice's self discovery.
One thing to note - Julianne has chosen to excerpt a 'vine experience' which I think does a great job of showing off the vitality and excitement of the writing. However, if you're turned off by the weirdness of the scene, rest assured that although there is plenty of novelty within these "covers" there's also a lot of good-old-fashioned heat as well.
Highly recommend this book to anyone interested in steampunk, hot-and-fun sex, and anyone looking for a fresh take on a classic story.
