Great book for sure. At first glance it doesn't seem like much but it is soooooo well written. I really enjoyed this book! It balances whimsical fantasy with a dark take on things.

"And down the rabbit hole she'll go, with her twisted mind and fleeing soul". (I just came up with that line and I rather like it). The story of the queen of hearts is a rather interesting mystery to many. This book isn't so much about how she becomes who she is in Lewis Carroll's classic, but a different spin. There is no Alice, and readers can be intrigued by the queen's strong passionate emotions, which lead to deadly consequences. Several interesting parts I found that I enjoyed were the new roles for the "Mad Hatter" and "Cheshire Cat." Overall, it was a bit violent and dark so I do suggest mature readers only. 3/5 stars

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. Wonderland is not my favorite fantasy world so I was hesitant at first. But what I liked the most was Dinah as a character. I enjoyed her tenacity, relentless nature, and her femininity. She is dynamic and I want to read more about her. And then, the conspiracy plot thickened and then I was hooked. So I can excited to read the next one -- thank goodness I have it.

I REALLY, REALLY, loved this book. I was never really a fan of the; "Wonderland" world. But this story was amazing. I finished it within a couple of hours. Very, interesting, story moved along well, and very exciting. Can't wait to read the sequel!!!

Queen of Hearts is a five star read. It's fast paced and has a creative twist on the Alice in Wonderland story. The book is also only a little over 300 pages so you'll read it very fast.
