This book is amazing! I couldn't put it down. the new wonderland that A.G Howard created was beautiful and mysterious. its like nothing you have ever read before. I loved the way she introduced the same characters from the original wonderland but darker and more mysterious. The love triangle its not cheesy like in other book or just thrown in there, you don't know who you want Alyssa to end up with the childhood friend Jeb or the mysterious Morpheus I for one am team Morpheus lol. if you haven't picked up this book you should is a must read. and a plus that cover would look gorgeous on your bookshelf. Rated this book a 5 out of 5 stars!
