“I looked around, counting the competition. Sixteen. To win, all I had to do was incapacitate each one, place my hand over their hearts and turn my palm into a flame. Easy….Yeah right.” I was expecting this to be Alice in Wonderland turned Zombie however there were only a couple actual references to the Lewis Carroll story. Alice follows the white rabbit holding a clock a lot because it warns her about what is to come, however it is the chapter titles in the book that are the main connection to the curious story of Alice in Wonderland. This novel was very fun and entertaining. I […]
