This story has a fascinating premise inspired by Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland". I wouldn't call this book "fan fiction" (although the author is clearly a fan) but more of an homage to the British classic, with unexpected elements from other places and cultures woven into a well crafted tale. The universe this story exists in is interesting and unique. While satisfying as a single read, there is clearly a larger story arc in play that I look forward to exploring in coming volumes.
So let's begin with the cover: It was made by the author himself. It's colorful and fits the theme of the story. That's what counts and what I like in a story.
Now as for the story- I have to admit, the beginning had me confused for a bit. The first chapter speak of the Queen of Heaven and rites that must not be seen before a certain time and b being of age. Then we go from Alysseren running away from the very thing she wanted most! I wasn't too sure what to think, but I pressed on. If found the Alyscrai a tough but intriguing read.
I went from reading about a naive girl who wanted more to wanting to her running from it all in practically the same chapter! She also ended up in a nice little triangle of the heart, which really isn't my thing but didn't hurt the story one bit. I found the quirks most interesting- especially the War Machines! The story pulls you in with a fast paced tale that showered you in both good vs. evil, peace vs. destruction and order against confusion!
