Alyssa Gardner has been down the rabbit hole and faced the bandersnatch. She saved the life of Jeb, the guy she loves, and escaped the machinations of the disturbingly seductive Morpheus and the vindictive Queen Red. Now all she has to do is graduate high school and make it through prom so she can attend the prestigious art school in London she's always dreamed of.

That would be easier without her mother, freshly released from an asylum, acting overly protective and suspicious. And it would be much simpler if the mysterious Morpheus didn’t show up for school one day to tempt her with another dangerous quest in the dark, challenging Wonderland—where she (partly) belongs.

As prom and graduation creep closer, Alyssa juggles Morpheus’s unsettling presence in her real world with trying to tell Jeb the truth about a past he’s forgotten. Glimpses of Wonderland start to bleed through her art and into her world in very disturbing ways, and Morpheus warns that Queen Red won’t be far behind.

If Alyssa stays in the human realm, she could endanger Jeb, her parents, and everyone she loves. But if she steps through the rabbit hole again, she'll face a deadly battle that could cost more than just her head.

Come back tomorrow for Letter V!


  1. Nice list. All good topics for stories. My wife is actually reading this book. I may check it out when she is done.

    Brandon Ax: Writer's Storm

  2. I just saw a movie recently on SyFy. Gotta love their cheese, but this one was bad. It was a Loch Ness Monster movie.

    You know, Loch Ness, possible maybe. I really don't know. I've never been to Scotland.

    But geez, when Nessie went in some underground cavern/tunnel and got all the way from Scotland to North America... They were really stretching the availability. :)

  3. Okay, now I want to know which ones are the ones you really believe in. :)

  4. I'm obsessed with the Atlantis myth. I've been interested in it since I was a little kid.

  5. I like that cover. Not familiar with number 7.


I heart me some good comments... and pumpkin spice latte's too!
