Publisher's Summary

Long before she was the terror of Wonderland, she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love.
Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland and a favorite of the unmarried King of Hearts, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, all she wants is to open a shop with her best friend. But according to her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for the young woman who could be the next queen.
Then Cath meets Jest, the handsome and mysterious court joker. For the first time, she feels the pull of true attraction. At the risk of offending the king and infuriating her parents, she and Jest enter into an intense secret courtship. Cath is determined to define her own destiny and fall in love on her terms. But in a land thriving with magic, madness, and monsters, fate has other plans.
In her first stand-alone teen audiobook, the New York Times best-selling author dazzles us with a prequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

Do yourself a favor and devour this book

I loved it. My heart hurts but as soon as the last word was read, I dove back in and reread it. The writing, the narration, everything, it was superb!

A truly miserable story

The writing was great, the idea was fabulous, the narrator was one of the best I've ever heard.

That's all the good that can be said about this story. It's one of the most miserable, least satisfying books I've ever had the misfortune to read. It went downhill at the end and I kept thinking, "it can't end like this." Then it got worse and ended.

I'm not just throwing a tantrum because not everyone lived happily ever after. NOBODY lived happily ever after. If I wanted to hear a story about how everyone hates everyone else and is miserable for the rest of their lives I'd watch the news.

Seriously, who is the intended audience? The miserable because they love company?
