More from Tabitha
Madness in Wonderland is a story of found family, good versus evil, rambunctious heroines and strong heroes who are not afraid to leap across airships for their people.
Trust me when I say I’ve tested their loyalty.
I put the Wonder’s crew through so much I started feeling sorry for them. Then I had another airship shoot at them with their cannons. That’s when I knew this story was not only a source of entertainment for me, but it was also challenging me. Madness forced me to become a better writer. Each page demanded my full attention if I wanted to have any hope of catching the true vibes of the story and bringing them to the page.
When I first started writing Madness, I had a rough idea of what I wanted. Evil Queen. Check. Alice as a tough but loving heroine. Check. Frankenstein’s monster. Check. (What’s Wonderland without a little havoc?)
Then the characters took over the story.
Frankenstein’s monster didn’t want to be a monster.
Hatter wanted to be more than a mad side character.
Alice wanted everyone to get along without losing another crew member.
Meeting their demands was a challenge and the story shifted from a whimsical fairy tale to something more. It dove deeper than I planned and showed me that I can do hard things too.
Madness in Wonderland is book one in the Beyond Wonderland series that is written by Tabitha Bouldin. I have read several books by this author and have always enjoyed them. Steampunk Fiction is not my typical genre, but this book will grab you in within the first few pages. I absolutely loved Alice In Wonderland. (I like the Johnny Depp version the best) So I was excited to see where the story would take them. There is also the weaving of Frankenstein's monster throughout the story. It's an interesting pairing.
The Red Queen is wreaking havoc in Wonderland. Children are being taken and put into the Queen's Army and only the strong are surviving. Alice, Hatter and others are teaming up to try and rescue Hatter's sister. Can they pull it off?
Dr. Frank N. Stein has created an prototype soldier. Part man. Part monster. He has created him to serve the queen. He is part of the reason that everything is in chaos. However, Alice sees him for more then what the rest of Wonderland does.
The author has kept the original personalities/persona of the characters - and added her own twist. I love when books I grew up reading have been rewritten and brought more current day atmosphere. I felt that the weaving together of two classics was brilliant. The story is well written, it brings you into it within the first few pages. I hope to read more of the series.
Thank you to the author, Celebrate Lit and publisher for allowing me to read a copy of this book.
