Waiting on Wednesday #228: Queen of Hearts

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases.

Queen of Hearts
By: Colleen Oakes
Release Date: May 3, 2016

As Princess of Wonderland Palace and the future Queen of Hearts, Dinah’s days are an endless monotony of tea, tarts, and a stream of vicious humiliations at the hands of her father, the King of Hearts. The only highlight of her days is visiting Wardley, her childhood best friend, the future Knave of Hearts — and the love of her life. When an enchanting stranger arrives at the Palace, Dinah watches as everything she’s ever wanted threatens to crumble. As her coronation date approaches, a series of suspicious and bloody events suggests that something sinister stirs in the whimsical halls of Wonderland. It’s up to Dinah to unravel the mysteries that lurk both inside and under the Palace before she loses her own head to a clever and faceless foe. Part epic fantasy, part twisted fairy tale, this dazzling saga will have readers shivering as Dinahs furious nature sweeps Wonderland up in the maelstrom of her wrath.  Familiar characters such as Cheshire, the White Rabbit, and the Mad Hatter make their appearance, enchanting readers with this new, dark take on Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

  1. I think I have a copy of this book in its original cover which came out a few years ago. This cover is much more appealing though and if it hadn't been for Goodreads, I probably would have ended up buying it again.

  2. oh i love retellings, a darker take on alice? yes please

    My WoW

  3. Wait, wasn't Dinah the cat?

    Regardless, I love me a good Alice retelling!
