Book Summary: After ten years of being told she can't tell the difference between real life and a fairy tale, Alice finally stops believing in Wonderland. So when the White Rabbit shows up at her house, Alice thinks she's going crazy.

Only when the White Rabbit kicks her down the rabbit hole does Alice realize that the magical land she visited as a child is real.

But all is not well in Wonderland.

The Ace of Spades has taken over Wonderland and is systematically dismantling all that makes it wonderful. Plain is replacing wondrous, logical is replacing magical, and reason is destroying madness. Alice decides she must help the Mad Hatter and all those fighting to keep Wonderland wonderful.

But how can she face such danger when she is just a girl?

Alice must journey across the stars to unite an army. She discovers that fairy tales are real in the magical world beyond the rabbit hole. But they are not the fairy tales she knows.

Fairy tales have dangers and adventures of their own, and Alice must overcome the trials of these old stories if she wants to unite the lands against Ace.

With the help of Peter Pan, Pinocchio, Snow White and heroes old and new, Alice may have the strength to take back Wonderland.
Book Review: When I first came across this book, I thought, "Wow! This sounds interesting!" and I found myself looking forward to the moment of its release.

I was a bit disappointed the moment after finishing it.

The plot was very interesting and had tons of potential but the many characters seemed to be a bit too much and fell flat. Maybe it was the mash-ups that just seemed to be too much. I should have enjoyed such things seeing as I love Once Upon A Time but I could not find any character that I could connect with.

Still it was a fun read and I still recommend anyone who loves Alice in Wonderland give this book a chance. You might enjoy it.
