Dorothy Must Die meets Alice in Wonderland!
This is not a story of happily ever after – it’s the twisted YA sequel in the origin story of an infamous villain…
The once-future Queen of Hearts, Princess Dinah, has been exiled from Wonderland. Her vicious father who she always feared has framed her for a brutal murder and turned the kingdom against her.
Now hiding in the mysterious Twisted Wood with only her war steed at her side, Dinah is faced with a choice – to leave Wonderland forever or stay and fight for the throne.
A chance encounter with a long-lost enemy of the kingdom brings Dinah more allies than she ever could have imagined. But before battle, Dinah must confront truths about her heart and her destiny – no matter how dark those secrets may be.
Revolution is rising in Wonderland. Dinah’s war has begun.
