Summary from Goodreads
The first time the Nightmares came, it nearly cost Alice her life. Now she’s trained to battle monstrous creatures in the dark dream realm known as Wonderland with magic weapons and hardcore fighting skills. Yet even warriors have a curfew.
Life in real-world Atlanta isn’t always so simple, as Alice juggles an overprotective mom, a high-maintenance best friend, and a slipping GPA. Keeping the Nightmares at bay is turning into a full-time job. But when Alice’s handsome and mysterious mentor is poisoned, she has to find the antidote by venturing deeper into Wonderland than she’s ever gone before. And she’ll need to use everything she’s learned in both worlds to keep from losing her head . . . literally.
I am so thrilled to be a part of the Blog Tour for this book. Here we have a retelling of Alice in Wonderland. When I was asked by the publishers if I would like a copy and would want to be a part of the Blog Tour I had to say yes. I love Alice in Wonderland and I love retellings so win, win. What drew me in a was a line on the press release which said “What if Buffy had fallen down the rabbit hole instead?” And immediately I knew I had to read this. I am currently reading this just now and I’m loving it so far. And look at that cover it’s freaking amazing.
“Swords will shatter.”
“Hearts will break.”
“Heads will roll.”
So the publishers Titan Books have kindly given me 2 copies to giveaway. This is a UK/ROI only giveaway, sorry my international peeps. I will be posting my giveaway later today on my Instagram page, which is @literarywisdom so be sure to stay tuned for that.
Hope you enjoyed this post and I’ll see you all later for another post.
