Looking Glass Wars by:Frank Beddor

Publication Date: August 2007

Overview: Alyss Heart can't stand that "master of fantasy" bunk; she knows that Lewis Carroll was nothing more than an incompetent reporter. After she generously shared her Wonderland experiences with this fledgling author, he totally botched the retelling, even mangling her name. Alyss, however, refuses to merely grouse; she and royal bodyguard Hatter Madigan decide to make another emergency excursion down the rabbit hole, opening our eyes to parallel realms that prim Rev. Dodgson never imagined. A refreshing take on a Victorian classic.

My thoughts: Okay so honestly...I couldn't get into this book. I read the first part but I just stopped. It wasn't that I wasn't interested because I was. I just felt like this has been done before. Everyone wants to put their pin on things and that's fine, but I didn't care for this one.
First you deal with Alyss who is a spoiled brat and deserves a good spanking and then Dodge who is in love with her, but really they are too young to even go their. And i can't even begin to discuss Hatter and Rabbit.
So I'm giving this book to my cousin to read and maybe she will come up with something better. Sorry to the fans of this series and this book.

My Rating: 2 stars
