Who was Alice?  Not the girl we met through Lewis Carroll’s version of Wonderland….that’s for sure!  Alyss, is the heir to the Wonderland throne and she is forced to flee through a wormhole in the Pool of Tears as her evil Aunt Redd tries to overthrow the government.  Alyss lives for years in England as her body guard, Hatter Madigan searches for her so she may return to Wonderland and overthrow the evil Redd.  But Alyss’s imaginative powers have faded from disuse…can she actually defeat Redd?  Enter a world of Cheshire cat assassins, white rabbits that are actually learned scholars, and generals that have an interesting habit of splitting in two.  This is a book that is filled with interesting twists on old plot lines and characters.  You will be taken into a whole new society where political intrigue and fantastical powers clash for lots of action and suspense.  (Isinglass Book Award committee, 2007-2008)
