Author: Frank Beddor

After escaping from a bloody coup in Wonderland, Alyss Heart battles the evil Queen Redd and the dark forces of Black Imagination in The Looking Glass Wars.

It's Alyss, Not Alice

The Looking Glass Wars is an action-packed, fantasy and adventure tale, inspired by the classic book, Alice's Adventures In Wonderland (you know, the one that the Disney movie was based on). It's the story of Alyss Heart, who is heir to the queendom of Wonderland, a magical place filled with chess pieces that talk, walruses that work as butlers and caterpillars that smoke from a hoocha and can predict the future. But when the evil Queen Redd and her army of Card Soldiers stage a bloody coup and kill Alyss' parents, the young princess is forced to flee Wonderland through a looking glass and begin living a normal life in England.

Good versus Evil

The Looking Glass Wars is a classic tale of good versus evil. To reclaim her rightful place as Queen of Wonderland, Alyss must use the good powers of White Imagination to defeat Queen Redd, the evil Cat and the dark and deadly forces of Black Imagination. Along the way, Alyss also learns important lessons about revenge, loyalty and friendship.


The Bottom Line

The Looking Glass Wars is a fast-moving story filled with such amazing characters and bloody battles that you'll find this book hard to put down. Alyss Heart is an amazing character, who's strength, spirit and imaginative powers make her a heroine unlike any other. You'll also be drawn to The Cat, a revolting assassin, who is part feline, part human and completely evil. From the bloody battles involving Card Soldiers and chess pieces to the wild rides through the Looking Glass Continuum, the Looking Glass Wars is a magical journey that reveals the power of faith and imagination.
