More About the Author

Jason G. Anderson was born in Devonport, Tasmania, Australia, but later moved to Hobart to attend the University of Tasmania. Getting a degree in computing, with the intention of becoming a professional programmer, he quickly took up a job that wasn't programming related and hasn't looked back! He developed a love of reading from an early age, spending many hours in the local library reading the (limited selection of) novels they had available. He lives with his wonderful wife, Marina, and their many cats. During the day he deals with large quantities of scientific data. At night he prefers to write about imaginary worlds far removed from our own.

Format: Paperback
If you like steampunk and Wonderland, this is a must-read. We get to visit old favorite characters from the original stories, and meet new ones. Anderson stays true to Lewis Carol's world and characters, but adds so many of his own ideas that Wonderland feels, well, wondrous again.

I love how Wonderland is divided into six kingdoms with the accompanying war and political intrigue. The Heart, Club, Spade and Diamond kingdoms are there, as well as the Red and White kingdoms, who fight over territory. The people are strange, alien and still familiar, Victorian and modern. It feels like there is a whole world of weird and beautiful things and people to encounter, and we get to go on a tour.

The book has fun twists, lots of running and adventure, romance and cool mechanicals. You'll be glad you bought this one.

Format: Paperback
Gears of Wonderland is a fast paced, action packed, steampunked adventure that was not only fun, but so very refreshing. Like a lot of people, I'm a sucker for a good remake. A great revamping of an old fairy tale idea, the ability to take something special, magical and close to our hearts and find a way to make it brand new again. Jason G. Anderson's Gears of Wonderland does just this. Anderson's remodeled Wonderland is one of the most original ones I've ever read.

The story follows the tale of your everyday man, James Riggs. It starts with a very brief glimpse into James's blah rundown existence, you know, crappy job where he's not appreciated and a lame, bossy fiancé that kicks him out, then quickly turns into an action mystery when his best friend is murdered in front of him and he flees the scene only to be caught by a man in a white suit who throws him down a hole.

From the first second James is thrown down the rabbit hole it's go time. James, along with the reader barely has time to get his bearings before we meet up with Kara, the mad hatters daughter and we're off on our adventure. Learning about the young mad King of Hearts and running for our lives with shifty pirates, you can't turn the page fast enough. I'm a gal that likes a story that moves and flows with ease, like this one. Anderson gives you just enough of the surroundings to feel out where you are and just enough back story to get you to your next destination on the journey. Which is great, because then it feels like you're really right there with James. You only know what he knows. In such a new and large Wonderland world it could have been easy to lose the reader. But keeping us right with James, even in his limitations of knowledge, you don't get sidetracked or too confused.

This is a fresh and unique take on Wonderland. Alice's visit has set in motion changes that she never could have imagined and the Wonderland that James encounters is a Victorian/steampunk world where mechanical men act as assassins and flying ships roam the skies. All the familiar characters are here: The Mad Hatter, the White Rabbit, Caterpillar, the Cheshire Cat... but these are not the lovable if mad characters that Alice encountered. Viewed through an adult's eyes they are quite different, indeed.

To avoid spoilers I do not want to discuss the plot but I will just say that this one is a page turner. Even during scenes that are not "action-oriented" Mr. Anderson keeps the reader interested and his unique view of Wonderland keeps the reader surprised and guessing at every turn. He creates characters that the reader cares about and cheers for and although the story line is resolved he leaves enough up to the reader's imagination and lays the groundwork for a possible sequel. I can easily see a fascinating story developing from James's further adventures in Wonderland as he (semi-spoiler) comes to terms with his new life there.

This review was originally posted on my blog Little Miss Reader ([...])

The first thing I have to say about this book is that it's kind of short - I know 200 pages aren't that short, but if it had been longer the story would have had the space and time to evolve into something even better. Don't get me wrong - I really enjoyed this book, I just wish it was longer, more detailed and that the relationship between James and Kara would have had the time to bloom.

I think the story is very intriguing, most of us already know about the incredible wonders of Wonderland and this story, somehow, takes that world to another level.
I have never read a steampunk book before, but I dare say that I quite enjoyed it. I liked that only the first chapter took place in "our" world and the rest of the book is set within the borders of Wonderland.
I loved how the characters from the original story was human's in this one, but still had some of the quirkiness that identifies them as a creature of Wonderland. I loved the Hatter (I always love Mad Hatter) I just wish we saw more of him - but he's not that important in this story, so I will let it slide.

I loved the fact that this wasn't a story about love. I love reading love stories but I also love reading books with only a sprinkle of love instead of a whole pile of it. I loved that it took a while for James and Kara to for starters realize it and let alone act on it.

I gave this book 3 hearts since I enjoyed it quite a lot, but still felt a little something was missing.
