From the blurb:
Several years after the events of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, Alice finds herself back in Wonderland and called upon to save the world of playing cards and talking animals from the increasingly deranged Queen of Hearts. But all is not as it first appears in the fluctuating dream world and soon Alice is battling to save herself from the nightmare that is rapidly overtaking the realm. Have you ever wondered what would have happened if Alice hadn’t drunk from the bottle labelled ‘Drink Me’, or if she hadn’t joined the Hatter, the March Hare, and the Dormouse for tea? Well now you can find out. In Alice’s Nightmare in Wonderland, YOU decide which route Alice should take, which perils to risk, and which of Wonderland’s strange denizens to fight. But be warned – whether Alice succeeds in her quest or meets a dire end as the nightmare escalates will be down to the choices YOU make. Are you ready to go back down the rabbit-hole?
It’s a ‘choose your adventure’ type book, where your path is determined by your choices and by dice roll or card draw, so the story will vary depending on the route you take. Alice has five different attributes – Agility, Logic, Insanity, Combat and Endurance – which also influence the outcomes of various events. She also has two special abilities: Curiouser and Curiouser, and The Pen is Mightier Than The Sword: both alter the outcome of events in different ways.
I have both the limited edition clothbound and the paperback versions. The clothbound was available as a Kickstarter reward, and now sells for between £50 and £100.
Available on Amazon in hardback, paperback and Kindle versions.
