I was completely blown away by this book. I've been trying to cut back on reviewing books lately so I can work my way through the never-ending-always-growing TBR pile, so I wasn't sure if I should try this book, it was only when I looked it up on Goodreads and saw it had such a high rating that I thought I should give it a go. I'm still patting myself on the back for that great decision.
This book start off exciting and interesting, even the not as eventful parts are still really engaging. I don't think there was a time throughout the whole book that I wasn't on the edge of my seat begging my brain to faster make sense of the words before me. This book was that good.
The writing was absolutely breathtaking, this author sure knows how to weave her words. The only times I was pulled out of the story were when I had to give a little pause just so I could admire the amazingness of how the story flowed. I like writing myself and it is such a delight when I read a book that is just written to perfection.
The characters were fantastic, each one was unique and interesting. I could never quite tell who had an ulterior motive, so I just remained suspicious of everybody. Bay-Lee and Nick were so good together. There was so much fire between them and I loved reading every scene between them!
This book is well worth reading and I am very much anticipating the next book in the series. The entire time while reading this I both simultaneously wanted it to end and go on for ever. I needed to know what happened but at the same time, I was reluctant to leave that world. Very engaging and a pleasure to read. Definitely something any paranormal fans should read!
*I received a copy of this book free in exchange for my honest review.
When I started this book, for about the first quarter or so, I felt engaged with the story but I wasn't totally invested. The story and characters were good but I wasn't emotionally involved with it all. After I got past that first quarter (at about 10/11 o'clock at night) I could not put the book down, which severely impeded my ability to sleep, not that I minded of course!
This book had a very wonder-esque feel to it and I loved the kooky oddness of the Wonderland world. This book really captured the silly nonsense of Lewis Carroll's Wonderland but Death of the Mad Hatter had more structure and was more relatable than its earlier counterpart. It also had some super, sweet, sexy romance, which was very much to my liking!
The characters in this book were fantastic and even though they didn't get major screen- err.. page time, I really loved MH and Robby. I also thoroughly enjoyed Alice Mae and Ryley and I really liked watching them grow as characters into themselves and the roles they needed to play. All the evil guys and gals were done perfectly, there was never a moment I didn't love to hate them! The only really sad thing was that Chez was such a meany, but Rutherford - sorry! - Mr. Ruth, certainly made up for the lack of animal kindness!
This book was so wacky that half the time I didn't know what was going, at least for a minute or two, but luckily most of the characters were as confused as I was which mad me feel a whole lot less silly! This book had the right amount of crazy that any Wonderland retelling needs and I adored it! Everything from the wacky prophecies, to Alice Mae's crazy make-up, I loved and couldn't get enough of the superb and splendiferous weirdness!
