Alice Takes Back Wonderland
Blurb (from Goodreads):
 After ten years of being told she can't tell the difference between real life and a fairy tale, Alice finally stops believing in Wonderland. So when the White Rabbit shows up at her house, Alice thinks she's going crazy.

Only when the White Rabbit kicks her down the rabbit hole does Alice realize that the magical land she visited as a child is real.

But all is not well in Wonderland.

The Ace of Spades has taken over Wonderland and is systematically dismantling all that makes it wonderful. Plain is replacing wondrous, logical is replacing magical, and reason is destroying madness. Alice decides she must help the Mad Hatter and all those fighting to keep Wonderland wonderful.

But how can she face such danger when she is just a girl?

Alice must journey across the stars to unite an army. She discovers that fairy tales are real in the magical world beyond the rabbit hole. But they are not the fairy tales she knows.

Fairy tales have dangers and adventures of their own, and Alice must overcome the trials of these old stories if she wants to unite the lands against Ace.

With the help of Peter Pan, Pinocchio, Snow White and heroes old and new, Alice may have the strength to take back Wonderland.

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Alice Takes Back WonderlandThis book was just a mess. Alice seemed to be in need of psychiatric help, I didn’t get why Peter Pan suddenly showed up, and the tangents that this book then went off on were nothing short of ridiculous - (highlight to view spoiler - what has rescuing Tinkerbelle got to do with anything? Why are Peter Pan and the lost boys even in this story? Why the heck is the tic-toc-croc suddenly Pinocchio in an automaton suit? Are you kidding me?)

Needless to say I spent most of this book hoping that the end would come quicker, and getting frustrated with the random places the storyline went. I would not want to read another book by this author.

4 out of 10
