Publisher's Summary

The first novel in Colleen Oakes' epic, imaginative series tells the origin of one of the most infamous villains - the Queen of Hearts.
This is not the story of the Wonderland we know. Alice has not fallen down a rabbit hole. This is a Wonderland where beneath each smile lies a secret, each tart comes with a demand, and only prisoners tell the truth.
Dinah is the princess who will one day reign over Wonderland. She has not yet seen the dark depths of her kingdom; she longs only for her father's approval and a future with the boy she loves. But when a betrayal breaks her heart and threatens her throne, she is launched into Wonderland's dangerous political game. Dinah must stay one step ahead of her cunning enemies, or she'll lose not just the crown but her head.

A more than fine novel for fans of Carroll's work

The story is well crafted, plus the vision of the original characters is both pleasantly familiar and refreshing.

The nod to American McGee's Alice made me giddy, though.
