As Princess of Wonderland Palace and the future Queen of Hearts, Dinah's days are an endless monotony of tea, tarts, and a stream of vicious humiliations at the hands of her father, the King of Hearts. The only highlight of her days is visiting Wardley, her childhood best friend, the future Knave of Hearts--and the love of her life. When an enchanting stranger arrives at the Palace, Dinah watches as everything she's ever wanted threatens to crumble. As her coronation date approaches, a series of suspicious and bloody events suggests that something sinister stirs in the whimsical halls of Wonderland. It's up to Dinah to unravel the mysteries that lurk both inside and under the Palace before she loses her own head to a clever and faceless foe.

A fresh take on Wonderland by a local author!

Great book for sure. At first glance it doesn't seem like much but it is soooooo well written. I really enjoyed this book! It balances whimsical fantasy with a dark take on things.

"And down the rabbit hole she'll go, with her twisted mind and fleeing soul". (I just came up with that line and I rather like it). The story of the queen of hearts is a rather interesting mystery to many. This book isn't so much about how she becomes who she is in Lewis Carroll's classic, but a different spin. There is no Alice, and readers can be intrigued by the queen's strong passionate emotions, which lead to deadly consequences. Several interesting parts I found that I enjoyed were the new roles for the "Mad Hatter" and "Cheshire Cat." Overall, it was a bit violent and dark so I do suggest mature readers only. 3/5 stars

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. Wonderland is not my favorite fantasy world so I was hesitant at first. But what I liked the most was Dinah as a character. I enjoyed her tenacity, relentless nature, and her femininity. She is dynamic and I want to read more about her. And then, the conspiracy plot thickened and then I was hooked. So I can excited to read the next one -- thank goodness I have it.

I REALLY, REALLY, loved this book. I was never really a fan of the; "Wonderland" world. But this story was amazing. I finished it within a couple of hours. Very, interesting, story moved along well, and very exciting. Can't wait to read the sequel!!!

Queen of Hearts is a five star read. It's fast paced and has a creative twist on the Alice in Wonderland story. The book is also only a little over 300 pages so you'll read it very fast.
