Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up—In this second installment in the series, Dinah has been exiled from Wonderland by her brutal father, the King of Hearts. She has nothing but the clothes on her back, a minuscule amount of food, a vicious brute of a steed, and a thirst for revenge for the loss of her brother, mother, and status as princess. It isn't until she is rescued by Sir Gorrann, a Spade formerly in the Cards' service, that she begins to realize that she may survive. Together, they embark across Wonderland, pursued by the king's soldiers in search of allies—the most unexpected being the Yurkei people, who have been driven from their homelands and are deeply suspicious of anyone from Wonderland. Over the course of their travels, Dinah grows from a heartbroken child into a fully trained warrior determined to wrest the throne away from her father and take her rightful place as Queen of Wonderland. But there are many secrets, lies, and plots to untwist before she can return. With the aid of Sir Gorrann, the slippery Cheshire (a man who is a great deal more than he seems), her childhood friend Wardley, and an unlikely army of Spades and Yurkei warriors, she just might succeed in her quest, but readers will have to wait until the concluding title in the trilogy to find out. VERDICT This exciting, fast-paced, plot-driven novel will keep readers up way past bedtime. Perfect for those who like Marissa Meyer's Heartless.—Jane Henriksen Baird, Anchorage Public Library, AK

Review

Praise for QUEEN OF HEARTS (Book 1 of the series):

''Oakes continues to weave literary magic as she pulls you down the rabbit hole into a Wonderland like you've never read before.'' --Chanda Hahn, New York Times bestselling author

''Fans of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland will enjoy the twists Oakes gives to familiar characters. Heart-stopping action makes the pages fly, and Dinah's struggle to stay true to herself amid impossible expectations resonates.'' --Publishers Weekly

''This latest in fairy tales retold makes the classic villain less villainous by showing her tenderhearted backstory.'' --Booklist

''Every good villain deserves an origin story, and Oakes offers a fascinating glimpse into the mad queen's complex and heartbreaking past. The novel offers some wonderful reinventions of Carroll's classic, and fans of Alice's more sinister elements will appreciate Oakes' macabre touches.'' --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

''Oakes knows just the right notes to hit to hook readers and make them beg for more.'' --Booklist
