Overview

The evil lies little girls are told...

I had fallen down a dark and forbidden hole.
Wonderland.
A hole where I had two choices in life—to be a breeder, or to be a killer. To create life, or to destroy it.

I had chosen poorly.

Wonderland's thermostat was all but frozen, leaving two opposing factions, the Pennas and the Cyans, to spread throughout the forbidding tundra of a land forever cast in a dark and deadly ice age, seeking only power and control now that Wonderland had become a frozen ball of ice.

In this frigid and cold hole, I was alone.

Until HE found me.
White Rabbit.

Rabbit was the leader of the Wonderland army, and I was now his captive. Forced to learn the art of submission, as well as the art of war, I became his soldier. From the moment I was captured, I became a mighty warrior amongst a cast of mad men.

But I was HIS.

And Rabbit would do whatever it took to battle my demons as we battled the enemy.

Hidden in the broken, and shattered Wonderland hid a new truth... a happily ever after. It was now my duty to find it.

Alice is a Penna with the options of fighting or being a breeder. Alice choose to fight until one day she had enough. She walk away from it all. Being on this dystopia land it will take two people from two different clans to come together to find love and start a new future. Alice and Rabbit connection is strong toward each other. Will they be able to have a future or will their war tear them apart? This book took you from despair to happiness. I was cheering for Alice to find love and being a strong woman to have the strength to move forward. I was not expecting to have feelings for this story when I started reading Alta book. She took this story on a amazing journey. Their was strength to walk away. Courage to move forward. Love to make a future. To expect more than fighting in a war to occupy land. When I started reading the story the first thing I thought about Alice was she is AWOL but then I realize she had enough of killing and taking. This story had me turning the pages to see what would happen to Alice. I enjoyed this book. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

The Truth About Alice is different from the first book of the series. Alice is a warrior and is tired of the fighting and the never-ending questions. So when Alice abandons her own kind and heads into Wonderland to intently die, she is surprised to come across the enemy's camp. Rabit can't believe what he finds, a beautiful woman walking in Wonderlands freezing weather- a warrior from the other side. Alice is her name, and she is willing to fight for them. Will Rabit and Alice be able to find a way to end this war that has been ravaging their kind for years?

Alta Hensley's creativity and genius with the written word are all evident in this one. It flows beautifully, captures both the imagination and the emotions, and instead of just re-telling Alice in Wonderland she has taken the characters and made them her own. The detail Ms. Hensley puts into her world building is phenomenal and it's easy to envision the desolate, cold, forbidding place Alice inhabits. The setting details are really important to me when the book I'm reading is more fantasy or sci-fi/dystopian. I don't want to become bogged down in them, but I do need to "see" the environment. Ms. Hensley does an amazing job of detailing the world without making it boring. Another thing I really appreciated was the character names all being tied to the original. The strength and fierceness of Alice was great and the commanding Rabbit White was the perfect counterpoint to her. Their interactions were steamy and emotional and I loved them. I highly recommend this one to all romance lovers. This is the second story in this series, but it can be read as a stand-alone.

The Truth About Alice is a dystopian fairytale with some dark and gritty twists set in the frozen wasteland of Wonderland. Alice's journey of survival in a crazy dystopian world is an intriguing and unique one. I've read a few of the Alice in Wonderland retellings and none of them can compare to this author's version. If you have ever read a book by Alta Hensley then you know this is going to be a captivating read! This is a definite adult only, must read and I highly recommend it.

This is not your mother's story about Alice in Wonderland. Nor are the characters like anything you've previously been lead to believe. Alta Hensley has given us a futuristic world of Wonderland covered in ice and snow with its occupants in a bloody war for survival. Which side is right and which side is wrong? You'll have to make up your own mind when reading. But know this, Alice and Rabbit White, along with the Mad Hatter, will definitely try their best to influence your decision. Each character is fierce in their own right with personality traits that are so relatable. The storyline itself it told in such a way it just flows while keeping you on edge with the circumstances of war, the mystery that Alice is hiding, and we have a bit of discipline going on here. What a great read.

Normally I don't read the futuristic stuff but this one was a nice surprise. The language was very normal which usually in these types of books are unrecognizable and made up. Also the names were a cool thing. It was Alice but not lol. The dominant male character was such a traditional part it made the story better. I would definitely recommend this book. Although I do love all Alta';s books. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I didn't know what to expect from this story, but dove right in. When I first started reading it, I didn't know if I would like it, but then I really got into the story and totally devoured it. Alice is an interesting character, and her view of the Wonderland (the Alice in Wonderland characters were a very nice touch). The battle between Penna and Cyan races was well told. I really got into this story, and that shocked me more than anything. Please note that I did receive an ARC of this book, and the opinions expressed in this review are my own.

In the bleak, cold wasteland of Wonderland, Alice left behind everything she knew in search of something different. She stumbled upon a new colony led by a fierce commander, Rabbit White, who isn't afraid to punish Alice when needed, but also willing to teach Alice how to love. Things she never learned living among her own people, but certainly something she needed. The Penna people, where Alice was born and raised, do not display emotions, so she knows nothing of love or even sadness. She is a mercenary who only knows of killing and death. When Rabbit offers her more beyond the bleak life she knows Alice is torn. She wants what Rabbit is offering, but only at the willingness that she submit to him. How can anything good come of submission, but on the other hand how can she go back to the nothingness she knew before? The Truth About Alice is full of wonderment. A world torn between extremes and people willing to tear each other apart because of their differences. With light BDSM and loaded with lots of fight scenes The Truth About Alice is located in a vastly different landscape than Cinder's book with a vastly unique feel. This is a complete standalone in the Evil Lies series.

I like the whole post-apocalyptic - strong-willed heroine - Take no prisoner Alpha with a soft underbelly theme Hensley has going on with this series. Alice is tired of killing in the name of science and the quest for world dominance(?). So she ups and walks away. I agree not quite the smartest move from our arrogant, talented yet not so worldly young Alice, but this is how IMO the story correlates with the fairy tale. Our skilled yet naive little killer (There are so many times I wanted to warm her backside!) seems to get herself into one situation after another... thank goodness for White! Rabbit has all the earmarks of a loving protector and a ruthless leader. He sees what Alice can not. He sees the woman inside, the one who has the potential to love and to be loved. He just needs to find a way to bring her to heel and bring her softer side to the surface. This has the sweetest romantic undertone to it and White just clicked for me. There is lots of blood and battles and some animosity from the soldiers - ads a bit of tension to their relationship. Watching Alice find that there is a purpose for love and that it is quite possible to be a warrior and a woman was entertaining.

I've read this author before and enjoyed her work, however this time I initially couldn't get into the book. However once I did I found I did enjoy it. I found the previous book in this series wasn't for me, but enjoyed this one more. It's a very strange adult retelling of Alice in wonderland, however from my perspective the book was enjoyable in its own right, but the storyline had moved so far from the Alice in wonderland story, that I wouldn't have really considered it as a retelling. It was certainly different and unusual with some recognisable main characters, but very different to how they portrayed in Alice in wonderland. If I'm honest I'd say the author has written a completely different story and named some of the characters after Alice in wonderland characters.
