Review: Death of the Mad Hatter by Sarah J Pepper

The Jack prophesied: If the king loses his head, then the Queen with a Bleeding Heart would rule the Red Court until Time ceased to move forward. When a second carried on for infinity, every creature in Wonderland would tip their Hat to the misfit girl with a Boy’s name (or was it a boy with a Girl’s name?) who’d end the Reign of Terror. However, it all hinged on the One-Eyed Hare being able to convince an uninspirable Heir that the impossible was indeed possible—like stopping time—and that Love was worth a Beheading.

Heads would Roll…
Hearts would Break…
In the end, would it matter who Reigned?

I've never been much of an Alice in Wonderland fan surprisingly. Never seen the cartoon but I do know the gist. I also think I know enough to point out that Death of the Mad Hatter is a story all in its own. It's quirky and fun and very imaginative. 

The story shifts between both Ryley and Alice Mae. Ryley is a somewhat popular boy who is trying to win the affections of "the hottest redhead in the school". 

But Alice Mae somehow weaves her way into the picture and of course Ryley can't help but be infatuated. Even though he doesn't want to be. 

Alice has a plan though. The Queen of Hearts wants Ryley in Wonderland, and Alice is just the one to do it. Here's the thing though, she has to make him fall in love with her!

A story that is as magical as it is romantic, I fell in love with the world along with the characters. I might even go and read the original, hah!

I recommend to all readers who enjoy fairy tale retellings and funny characters that make you laugh out loud. 

Oh and that cover is so beautiful and unique!! I loveeeee it.

BIO: I specialize in dark, paranormal romance – think “happy ever after” but with a twisted, dark chocolate center. Real-life romance isn't only filled with hugs, kisses, unicorns, and rainbows. True-love can be more thoroughly described in times of darkness and tribulation. It’s in those harsh moments where you see what a person is truly capable of – both the good and bad. Sometimes prince-charming isn't always on time, and the glass slipper is a little snug. However, it doesn't mean Charming is not Mr. Right, and who says every shoe is the perfect fit?
