Chasing Rabbits is not a retelling of Alice in Wonderland as I expected it would be but rather a visit back to the magical land of Louis Carrol's creation. A land that has changed and grown through time. Whenever Kat thinks she has a handle on things she finds they've changed again. Chasing Rabbits is a delightful trip away from the mundane of Kat's daily life as a librarian and she enjoys the journey until she begins to fear she might not make it back. She must outwit Fae, demi-Fae and her own insecurities on her journey.
I loved this story because I loved reading about Kat finding her own way through the muddled Fae world of Wonderland. In many ways, I identified with Kat's struggles as she came upon those who were smarter, stronger and far more secure than she was. I loved watching her succeed against them, and I mourned with her when she failed. In fact I'm hoping there's more to be had in the way of a sequel.
Chasing Rabbits is available on Kindle and in paperback, pick up your copy and join Kat on her adventures yourself.
Kat follows a carrot-stealing rabbit in her yard and suddenly finds herself in the Fae world version of "Wonderland". Once there, it is crazy adventure after adventure. You never know what is going to happen next, and it's so much fun to find out.
I really enjoyed this book. I loved the snark of the main character. I also loved all of the very fun versions of some of our favorite "Wonderland" beings as well as a whole slew of new and interesting characters. I highly recommend this book to fans of fantasy everywhere. Just be warned, this is not like your childhood version of "Alice In Wonderland" so I recommend to mature readers only.
There were, though, several things that didn't do it for me. I wasn't (and still am not) fond of the Heroine. I wanted to like her, but it's as if the Author deliberately made her difficult to like. I also did not like the "Shadows"--they just seem lame as Bad Guys. The plot was choppy, with a lack of clear progression at some points (at least for me). The attempted rape scene felt useless to the plot, so I'm still not sure why that was thrown in.
I'm on the fence about going on to the second book, but this was still a decent read for me. 3-1/4 Stars.
Kat finds herself deciding to come home, following an incessant voice to do so. Returning, she finds herself following what she thought was a rabbit and the next thing she knows she is in Wonderland. Which is actually the faerie world. Filled with gorgeous men that Lewis Carroll forgot to mention.
The world she creates is rather imaginative. Erin Bedford took the basis from what we all know and remember from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and then spun it into something that is equal parts nostalgic and what-in-the-hell. It was also fun to watch Kat's own transformation in just one book, from someone that is basically ignored and kind of awkward, into a person who has to be sure of themselves and kick some ass. A few parts here and there made me tilt my head and reread, but all-in-all this was a great take on the classic tale with a fun twist that made me go "Ooooooh SNAP!"
I look forward to seeing how things pan out in the next book!
I started with word one and could not put the book down, except a few necessary breaks, I read this book all the way through all night long!! If, I had the next one available at my fingertips, Chasing Cats, I might have tried to see how long I could have read for. Go go NOW, and leap into a terrific fantasy sci fi
Overall the characters were compelling and the overarching theme was worthy, but the delivery fell flat. I'm hoping this first book was a setup for better books to come. Describing the framework of an alternate world can be tedious, but an engaging interwoven tale usually counters the necessary evil. I will likely read a chapter or five of book 2 to get a flavor, but I'm not hopeful
