Overview

James Riggs lives a normal life with a mind-numbing job, an overbearing boss, and a demanding fiancée. Then he witnesses the murder of his best friend. Saved from the murderer by a strange man in a white suit, James is cast down a hole and into a world he always believed was a kid's story. Wonderland.

But things have changed since Alice's visit. The Knave of Hearts has seized the Heart throne, conquered all of Wonderland with his steam-powered technological marvels, and rules the land with an iron fist.

Aided by the Mad Hatter's daughter, James journeys to discover why he has been brought to Wonderland and how the tattoo on his arm could be the key to Wonderland's salvation-or its destruction.

    Magnificently delightful

    Poor James, being dragged into Wonderland by a man in a white suit and pursued by the kingdom of hearts for being an outsider will make anyone question their sanity.

    Wonderland has changed after Alice left and isn't like the story book James read. The magical world of Wonderland mix with a bit steampuck to give the stage a whole new light and new cast mixed with the old.

    Besides, there can be no Wonderland without the Centipede, White Rabbit, Cheshire Cat, and, of course, Mad Hatter.

    I immensely enjoyed reading this book and recommended it to others. But, be warned. There's no going back after falling down the rabbit hole.
    The Knave of Hearts rules Wonderland with an iron fist and literally beheads any 'nay'sayers.

    Excellent Fairy Tale Retelling James Riggs is a guy letting hi

    Excellent Fairy Tale Retelling


    James Riggs is a guy letting his boss and his fiancé boss him around. One evening his fiancé gets upset about a chess set he purchased when he promised to give up the ‘silly game’ and then his boss calls to tell him he has to cancel his planned vacation to come into work and cover for him. She kicks him out and he walks to his old friend’s apartment to stay the night there. However, just after he gets there a strange man comes to the apartment, murders his friend then chases James out to the street where a yet another strange man in a white suit grabs him and sends him down a hole into Wonderland. That’s when things get even stranger.




    James is now in Wonderland, but in a very different one than Alice was in. The Knave of Hearts has taken the throne, conquered the other kingdoms and is mass-producing stream-powered machinery. Steampunk Wonderland has emerged, but James arriving from Otherworld has thrown a massive spanner in the works.




    I haven’t read Alice in Wonderland in um, *cough* many many years (let’s leave it at that) and I haven’t watched the Disney® movie since the kids were little, so many of the references to the original book were probably lost on me. However, I do remember enough to know that this book is a clever take of a favorite tail. Well-written and fast-paced, with a twisty plot, interesting world and likeable characters, I enjoyed this book very much.




    *Many thanks to the author for providing me with a review copy. Please see disclaimer page on my blog.

    Read this!

    I loved this follow up to Alice's adventures. Wonderland is just as intriguing in this twist. The characters I remembered are all present, and they are just was twisted and full of riddles as before. The story moves along at a great pace and I loved every minute of the ride.

    It's not Alice's Wonderland anymore!

    Let me begin by saying, I love the cover of this book. I am automatically drawn to a book with a great cover, and this one's a winner. I am also new to the entire steampunk movement but I find it's a lot of fun! I love the combination of steampunk and wonderland in this book. Jason Anderson has created a story that Lewis Caroll would like.
    I don't like to reveal or spoil the story with my reviews, just buy this book- it's a gripper! You won't want to put it down until you're finished. When I was finished, I found myself looking for more pages, and rereading passages. This wonderland has kingdoms with wars, flying ships and other fun stuff. James is a wonderful character (no pun intended). He visits a land he believed to be just a story from a book. He becomes involved in an amazing journed.

    I hope to read more from Mr. Anderson. I can see more adventures for James in Wonderland.
