Descriere

A mind-bending new novel inspired by the twisted and wondrous works of Lewis Carroll...

In a warren of crumbling buildings and desperate people called the Old City, there stands a hospital with cinderblock walls which echo the screams of the poor souls inside. In the hospital, there is a woman. Her hair, once blond, hangs in tangles down her back. She doesn’t remember why she’s in such a terrible place. Just a tea party long ago, and long ears, and blood…

Then, one night, a fire at the hospital gives the woman a chance to escape, tumbling out of the hole that imprisoned her, leaving her free to uncover the truth about what happened to her all those years ago. Only something else has escaped with her. Something dark. Something powerful. And to find the truth, she will have to track this beast to the very heart of the Old City, where the rabbit waits for his Alice.


"A fast paced, spine tingling, adventure ride that won't let you go till the end."--"Fresh Fiction" "A complex and engaging universe...Delightfully horrifying."--"Open Book Society" "Great snarky dialogue, continuous action, excellent world-building and innovative twists on urban fantasy conventions are par for the course."--"RT Book Reviews" "A fun, fast ride through the gritty streets of magical Chicago...Highly recommended."--Nancy Holzner, author of "Hellhound" "Henry shows that she is up to the challenge of debuting in a crowded genre. The extensive background of her imaginative world is well integrated with the action-packed plot, and the satisfying conclusion leaves the reader primed for the next installment."--"Publishers Weekly"

" Henry retains all the surreality of Carroll s tale but makes it even darker, leading readers down a scarier rabbit hole and into a city that s fantastical, scary and frankly more satisfying than Carroll soriginal The writing is brisk, the story compulsive A fun, chilling, exciting, magical read." ---The Oklahoman
