I always remember Allyson’s books, because there’s nothing else like them. “Reagan Through the Looking Glass” is a perfect example. There are million stories that have been written using the Alice in Wonderland theme in one way or another, but I challenge you to find one quite like this. It’s a very modern day tale, but not a retelling of the tale. This is something else entirely.
Reagan is a young woman caught up in the search for her brother’s killer, hunting for years, looking high and low through the dark web. She knows that her brother was involved somehow with a person known by the online codename, “Jabberwocky”. Reagan had managed to turn her hunt for the Jabberwocky into a Master’s thesis, guided by a Professor specializing in cyber security. Reagan is at a tech convention when she gets a completely paranoid call from her professor (not the first she’s ever received from him), but she ignores his warnings of impending doom…
This is just the beginning. Everything Reagan thought she knew is blown apart. Things she thought she knew about her brother, her Professor, she starts to doubt. She has to decide if she can trust people who she’s thrown into dangerous situations with at a moment’s notice and only go by crazy names like, Hatter, Hare, and Doormouse. There are riddles everywhere she goes, lies and half-truths.
When everything becomes a mind game, and there’s no one you can trust, you really can’t go home again. (It sounds like a Moviephone trailer doesn’t it? I could definitely see this as a movie.)
“…Looking Glass” could be simply a good spy novel, but it becomes a really great spy novel because of the Wonderland flavor – because it’s Allyson. These characters are so relatable and real, and the theme is unique. You really can believe that this group of cyber criminals would not only use online names to protect their identities, but that they would pick a unifying theme – and why not Wonderland? The personality quirks they each have are realistic; the knowledge base that Reagan has for her subject matter is solid and unwavering. The action is fast-paced, the tension at times simply off the charts as you struggle right along with Reagan to understand what’s happening, and why everyone else seems to be at least three steps ahead.
There’s so much about this book to love, I could go on and on… luckily, it will. In book two.
I liked that she acknowledged when she was making a less than smart decision. I liked that she acted even when afraid.
I look forward to the next one, which I am opening immediately.
