Dorothy Must Die meets Alice in Wonderland! This is not a story of happily ever after - it's the twisted YA sequel in the origin story of an infamous villain.... The once-future Queen of Hearts, Princess Dinah, has been exiled from Wonderland. Her vicious father, whom she always feared, has framed her for a brutal murder and turned the kingdom against her. Now hiding in the mysterious Twisted Wood with only her war steed at her side, Dinah is faced with a choice - to leave Wonderland forever or stay and fight for the throne. A chance encounter with a long-lost enemy of the kingdom brings Dinah more allies than she ever could have imagined. But before battle, Dinah must confront truths about her heart and her destiny - no matter how dark those secrets may be. Revolution is rising in Wonderland. Dinah's war has begun.
