    Her Mad Hatter is an intriguing take on a traditional storytale.

    Her Mad Hatter is an intriguing take on a traditional storytale. I have never stopped to think what happened to the other people in a storytale. In this alternate take on Alice in Wonderland, we get Hatter's love story--and what a love story it is! Wonderful characters, beautiful imagery, hot love scenes and a moving storyline are all served up by Ms. Hall and made this a very fast read. If you're looking for a solid love story--I highly recommend this book. I enjoyed every moment and look forward to more from this author.

    Same story, Different version, Great read...

    I've read so many different takes of the classics and none of those writers did those classics justice. The characters were silly, not in a good way, the interactions were crude and the sex was crass. Hell in one version the cheshire cat was female, which is fine, except that it ended with her snd Alice as lovers....very strange. I really enjoyed this version, it was very well written, very whimsical, very sad during certain parts but it fell right into Hatter character. I like that the author didn't bombard readers with all the characters at one shot and that she didn't recreate the story page for page, it had her own flair. The sex was hot but not in a "wow I might as well put on a porn movie" kind of way. I am looking forward to reading the books in this series!

    Her Mad Hatter by Marie Hall Kingdom Series Book 1 Danika was no

    Her Mad Hatter by Marie Hall
    Kingdom Series Book 1
    Danika was not your usual fairy godmother. She didn’t want the prissy princes and princesses. She liked having her bad boys. And especially the worst of them in the Kingdom. The Bad Five. This included Mad Hatter, Gerard, Wolf, Jinni and Hook. She had been warned to connect them with their mates before it was too late. Especially Hatter’s. So off she went to find yet another Alice.




    Alice Hu loved her Wonderland book. She believed at one time when she was in dire straights, Mad Hatter had come to rescue her. Her Hatter, she loved him. No one believed her of course. So on she went in life, no man ever comparing to the one in her dreams. And one day she finds herself being pulled into a tunnel by a white rabbit.




    This was an extraordinary story. The author takes the tale of Alice in Wonderland and adds a complete back story to it. Taking the reader from our world into a magical crazy place called, Wonderland. She has you falling in love with the disheveled sullen Hatter and at one point it had me going through quite a few tissues. It looks like there will be five books in this series, one for each of the Bad Five.

    Creative take on well-worn tales

    You will never look at these fairy tales in the same light again. A little weak in style; lots of errors in grammar, spelling, punctuation and repetitive word choice; but while the series is not Pulitzer-bound, a very consumable read for the intended audience. A fresh breath of fancy to give the reader a pleasant break from reality.

    The heroine is Asian, an Asian Alice to be exact, and so delicio

    The heroine is Asian, an Asian Alice to be exact, and so deliciously different from the usual blonde blue eyed Alice that I had to take a second look. the story is a little fast paced but beautifully written. The author includes everything from childhood loves, angst, and even a touch of madness. The book was a great read and I highly recommend it!

    Loss for word

    This book was phenomenal. At first I was worried it would be a typical story but its not. The characters were so amazingly done that I instantly fell in love. Marie was able to make you feel the hatters true madness. Its a mark of a gresat writer when you can make the reader truly believer they are there watching this happen in real life. To competely entrap the reader in to the story, to cause the reader to laugh, to cry, to get butterflies and blush along side Alice. Bravo Marie. I reccomend her highly and will certainly be reading more of her work.

    Rich world, rushed story

    Although I found the ending of this story to be a bit rushed, the rich world and fascinating characters make up for it in a overall satisfying read. I'd like to see how this author develops over time.

    I was given a copy of this book from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.

    What a delightful read! We are introduced to the story by Danika, fairy godmother to the bad boys of the fairy tale world. Rather dismissive of the “Prince Charming” and godmothers of the bippity boppity boo ilk, Danika is on her second attempt to find the Mad Hatters true love. And it’s a rush job, as Hatter is fast becoming more mad every day.

    Enter Alice Hu, all grown up and new owner of the Mad Hatter’s Cupcakery and Tea Shoppe. Alice has a fascination with the stories that carry her name, and a secret fantasy of her Hatter, styled after the Johnny Depp characterization of the Tim Burton movie. Alice is the great-granddaughter, and spitting image, of the first Alice Danika introduced to Wonderland – a colossal failure of an introduction, that hastened the decline of Wonderland and the sanity of Hatter.

    What follows is a delightful romp through Wonderland, liberally sprinkled with snips of other faerie tales, carefully and imaginatively detailed in a way that brings the memories of the original story of Alice to light.

    Of course, it’s a romance with a choice for loss or gain. If Hatter fights to love and keep Alice, he maintains his sanity and lives in Wonderland and love forever. If Alice stays – she leaves behind her family, friends and business: but has the one man who she dreams of nightly, that fills her every need.

    There is a ton of action and emotion poured into this novella; while Alice is important, we see more of Wonderland from Hatter’s perspective, even laden with the dour quotes from Poe. He is deliciously detailed, his flights into obscurity keep the reader, and Alice delightfully off balance. Alice is busy trying to relate the unknown to the world, and book, that she knows – and often comes up short. While this is a romance, there are some steamier scenes near the end, but those were almost unneeded as the story carries you into the ‘fireworks on the beach’ sort of sense without them. The twist at the end left me wanting more, and I am sure this is not the last of Alice and the Hatter in this Kingdom Series.

    I would have bought this book just to get the tea party scene in

    I would have bought this book just to get the tea party scene in chapter one. Well, not tea party scene--more like a drinking scene with the bad boys of the Kingdom sitting around a table, their personalities sparking conflict whenever one of them utters a syllable. The way the author infuses them with so much sensuality and personality with just a few words and bits of dialogue . . . it's amazing.

    I will definitely be adding all of the Kingdom books to my auto-buy list because I just can't bear the thought of missing any of these bad boys' tales . . .

    My Initial Reaction┬┐ Since Marie is one of my favorite authors,

    My Initial Reaction…
    Since Marie is one of my favorite authors, I really wanted to love Her Mad Hatter. I just liked it. The concept was great and I see a lot of potential for the series as a whole, especially in the world, but I didn’t love the Alice or the romance.




    The Characters…
    Let’s get the bad new out of the way first, shall we? Alice just didn’t do it for me. I wanted to love her and there was just enough there to make me realize that if I’d gotten to know her a lot better I probably would have adored her. But I didn’t. Alice Hu is obsessed with Wonderland and the Mad Hatter and has been her whole life. I never did really fully understand the obsession – it was explained that she felt an affinity to the story because of it bearing her name, but the level of obsession that we’re talking about just didn’t come through. Perhaps I was meant to understand that it was because they were fated for each other, but again, I didn’t get that. The result was that she seemed like a star struck girl who had the chance to make her crush fall in love with her. However, I saw some things about her that I could tell I could have adored. For example, Alice broke away from what the family wanted to pursue her dreams. She’s a baker (and who doesn’t love someone who makes delicious treats?) and when we first meet her, she’s just opened her own bakery. To do that, especially without the support of family, take guts. And every now and again she’d say something that made me think, “Ok, this chic has got spunk.” It just wasn’t enough. I wanted so much more character development.




    Okay, but there’s a huge chunk of good here and his name is: The Mad Hatter. I think that to write a character that’s a bit out of his wits and somehow still make sense has got to be HARD. Marie managed to make the Hatter a bit insane and yet his ramblings worked in a pretty great way. And. what can I say, I have a weakness for hot guys, even the semi insane? It’s hard to put my finger on it exactly, because we didn’t get to know him near as much as I would have liked either, but I liked him much more than I liked Alice.




    There’s really not much for a supporting cast – this is Alice & Hatter’s story. However, Marie did add this neat aspect of a fairy godmother – Danika – who is responsible for the bad boys (Hatter, Wolf, Hook and there were two more which I’ve forgotten at the moment) and she has to help them find their soulmates within the year or something terrible will happen. (So we know where the series is going, right?) Danika is fun. She made me laugh and her appreciation for the bad boys is something we have in common :) I hope we get to know her a bit better in the other books.
    The Story…
    For me, Her Mad Hatter shined in the creative way it told the story. We’re introduced to the scene by Danika, Hatter’s fairy godmother (who knew guys got fairy godmothers? Seems fair.) She’s been trying to match Hatter (and the other bad boys) to their soul mates for a long time and times almost up. She’s known that Hatter’s match would be named Alice, so she’s been bringing him Alices to fall in love with. These Alices stay for 3 days, during which time they will either fall in love with Hatter, him with them, and (and this is important) be accepted by Wonderland, or they will go home and never return. Over the years, Hatter has almost fallen for some, had some try to take Wonderland’s power, and others ignore him for 3 days. One of those Alices was Alice Hu’s great grandmother – whom she’s the spitting image of – and her great grandmother broke Hatter’s heart. So when she shows up looking just like him, they get off to a bad start.




    A really brilliant concept and I loved the three days that Alice spent in Wonderland. Marie did a really great job making this crazy place that you can’t help but love. Like with the characters, though, I wanted more. The three days went so fast and I didn’t get to see so many of the things that for me ARE Wonderland. No crazy queen (I mean, come on, what’s Wonderland without “Off with your head?!?”), for example. But the moments that I did get – like the tea party – were just great. And that’s why I wanted MORE.To be perfectly fair, though, my knowledge of Wonderland comes purely from TV and Movie adaptations of the book and I’m no expert. Perhaps what was missing was not in the book and I have no place to talk from?




    The love story too, needed more. It was hot and steamy and didn’t need any more of that. I wanted more development – three days is a short time and in those three days they just didn’t spend enough time together to fall in love IMHO. They fell in lust, but I wanted love. A deep connection. I felt like those three days needed to be packed for me to believe in their love story, and they weren’t so I didn’t. But I believed in their lust LOL and it was enjoyable ;)




    Concluding Sentiments…
    So I’m a bit disappointed, but ultimately I loved the world and really look forward to seeing more stories set within it. And I’m thrilled that Marie just released THE HUNTSMAN, a full-length novel in this same world. But for a fun quick read, Her Mad Hatter will do the trick.

    I was never the Alice in Wonderland kid in my family. I liked Al

    I was never the Alice in Wonderland kid in my family. I liked Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast. Oh and Hunchback of Notre Dame. Alice in Wonderland was just weird, or so I thought from the cartoon.




    When the Tim Burton movie came out, and was so different than the cartoon I instantly fell in love with it. I remember people saying it was more like the book than the cartoon was and it made me want to read the book. Which I never got around to.




    But whether in the cartoon that I wasn't a fan of, or the Tim Burton take on the movie, the Mad Hatter was always my favorite character. There was something about the guy that just struck me. Even when he had white hair and his tongue hanging out of his mouth. 




    But h.o.l.y. h.e.l.l.




    Nothing prepared me for how I fell in love with the Hatter in this book. Nothing. He was mad, crazy, and yet you could tell that underneath it all, underneath his poetry recitation and general chaos, he was intelligent. He was so smart and so strong, and I think it was driving him crazy that he was being driven crazy. I think part of what bothered him so much was that he just didn't want to give in to the madness and the more he fought it, the harder it tried to take over.




    I loved the idea of them searching for "his" Alice, and that they found the perfect one. And they did. And they were so beautiful together. Not to mention sexy because let's face it.. even if you've never thought of the Mad Hatter as sexy before, you definitely will when you read this. The story was a roller coaster trying to battle his moods and then finding out who she was and why he didn't want to let her in to his heart. 




    Johnny Depp eat your heart out... you've got nothing on this guy.

    Her Mad Hatter

    Loved it! Quick read and very well written. An awesome adult spin on a childhood classic.
    The author did an amazing job writing the Hatter; you could definitely feel his craziness. I loved the descriptions of Wonderland and everything that was happening while there. It added a sense of adventure while Hatter and Alice were traveling.
    Beware, there is defintely a very, very sad part at the end... that only leads to a happening end...

    for some odd reason I could not picture anyone though but Johnny Depp in the role of the mad hatter. it showed a sensual side of the tale with twists. And the humor that showed thru sometimes was a nice surprise. I look forward to more of this author's work.

    Another victim of bad editing

    Most of the reviews say this is a good book and that they couldn't stop reading it. I must agree the story is interesting I felt immediatley involved in the story, however the editing could use some work. While the story progressed I did find myself putting the book/nook down on several occasions before I actually finished reading it due to my frustration at the EDITING. There were far to many mistakes for this to be a smooth read such as "His knuckled her cheek, brushing her lip....” clearly the author meant to use He and not His. That is just one of the many errors in this book. I can not stress enough how hig editing is with me. If youre big on editig and smooth reads this isnt the one for you. If you're just looking for an intrresting quick read and dont mind poor editing its not too bad.

    A highly emotional romantic thrill ride! Who can resist a damage

    A highly emotional romantic thrill ride! Who can resist a damaged, tormented, half-mad man who quotes Edgar Allan Poe? The Mad Hatter is sexy as hell, with his nonsense and brokenness. Centuries of Alice after Alice coming to Wonderland, and yet never choosing him, has made the Hatter no longer believe in love. But his fairy godmother Danika has very little time left to find his true Alice before the madness will take over the Hatter completely.

    Unfortunately, the Alice that shows up in his backyard is one who reminds him too much of the woman that left his heart in pieces years before: ironically, her great-grandmother.

    In a land filled by magic, fueled by the Hatter’s every thought and desire, Alice must somehow find a way to make him accept her or he will be lost forever, destroying Wonderland in the process. But will the land claim her? Will Hatter?

    These aren’t the only obstacles in their dilemma. Alice has always been in love with Hatter, ever since reading about him as a child. But she will have to make him remember their connection if he is to accept her as his true love. And yet, what she reveals to him could prove to be too little too late.

    For fans of Alice in Wonderland, this is a grown-up version that brings with it all the things you would expect of a Wonderland-esque story. And did I mention the sexy, torment, damaged Mad Hatter? A MUST-READ!

    I loved it!!!!

    I'm dying to read the rest of the series. :) I started reading at 2am and couldn't put it down until I finished. I love romance and fairytales, so seeing how this novel combined both of them together with a modern twist was awesome to see. Especially, reading about the Mad Hatter's madness and actually feeling his emotions and experiencing the inredible world of Wonderland. To be honest, this the first book I have ever stayed this late reading but I'm glad I did. Thank you for writing this series and, again, I cannot wait to see what the other books have in store. X)
