The Lovereading4Kids comment

Think Alice in Wonderland and then think again for this is a rich and original re-imagining of Alice, a revolutionary novel that is full of fantastic battle scenes, plot twists and page-turning action. This is the brilliantly imaginative finale in The Looking Glass trilogy, which began with The Looking Glass Wars and continued in Seeing Redd. Whether you’re a fantasy reader or not or a fan of Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland or not, you really should grab this trilogy by the neck. You’ll be swept through it, tossed around and even feel your blood run cold at times and the magic of it will stay with you long after you’ve finished it. Perhaps even Lewis Carroll would have been impressed?

Synopsis

Looking Glass Wars: Arch Enemy by Frank Beddor

Behind a pack of cards are a pack of lies! Unlike the comforting fairytale created by Lewis Carroll, the true story of Wonderland involves bloodshed, murder, revenge and war. The battle for Wonderland has come to a head and the Heart Crystal's power has been depleted thanks to King Arch's devastating weapon, WILMA. Imagination has been wiped from the land and the people of Wonderland have lost their greatest asset. Most alarmingly, even Queen Alyss is without her powers as her Queendom hangs in the balance. Can Alyss and those still faithful to her overcome their adversaries and restore order in Wonderland once and for all? Page-turning and complex, this culmination of the Wonderland saga is intensely satisfying. Return for the final instalment of the The Looking Glass Wars as Wonderland is fantastically brought to life again by acclaimed Hollywood producer, Frank Beddor.
