ArchEnemy

ArchEnemy by Frank Beddor. Cover art by Vance Kovacs.

Third part of the Looking Glass Wars trilogy.

Published by Dial Books (part of Penguin), 2009.

ISBN: 9780803731561

Hardback first edition with dustjacket.

The premise of the series is that the books as written by Lewis Carroll are a distortion of the ‘true events’. Alyss Heart (Alice Liddell) is actually the Princess of Wonderland: forced to flee to the real world when her sociopathic Aunt Redd takes over the throne. The white rabbit becomes Alyss’s (Alice’s) tutor, Bibwit Harte (an anagram), and the Mad Hatter is Hatter Madigan, the royal bodyguard.

From the publisher’s blurb:

Discover the fate of Wonderland- and imagination itself- in this riveting conclusion to the New York Times bestselling trilogy.

The Heart Crystal’s power has been depleted, and Imagination along with it. The people of Wonderland have all lost their creative drive, and most alarmingly, even Queen Alyss is without her powers. There is some comfort in the fact that the vicious Redd Heart seems to be similarly disabled. Amazingly, she is attempting to team up with her enemy, Alyss, in order to reclaim Wonderland from King Arch. Alyss might have no choice but to accept Redd’s overtures, especially when she begins to receive alarming advice from the caterpillar oracles.

I’m not overly keen on this series: the writing style isn’t to my taste, but they seem to be hugely popular, and I believe that a film is planned…

Available on Amazon: ArchEnemy (Looking Glass Wars)
