About Follow The White Rabbit

For Gwen, Marc, Rose, Daliah and Lucky, Wonderland is home, and yet they know little of its former glory. When the Alice prophecy resurfaces, they’ll have one chance to use Wonderland’s own legends to bring a little mayhem back into their reality. For she who controls Alice controls the fate of Wonderland.

My opinion

In this "book" this is considered a novella, anyway in this novella, we meet the inhabitants of Wonderland. The White queen Rose, the Red Queen Daliah, Marc and Gwen and Lucky. Lucky and Marc are my favourites! Marc lives together with his partner Gwen, who researches the Alice prophecy. Lucky lives in the Woods, she crosses paths with a white rabbits, who gives her the power to travel the dimensions. She meet Marc when he is wondering around in the Woods.

Anyways, I am sorry, I didn't  mean to get into it all that would spoil the fun. Ok, this is not the story of Alice (although we do get a glimpse of her). This is the story told by the inhabitants of Wonderland, who live in absence of Alice.

The story is told from Rose's, Gwen's, Daliah,s and Lucky's point of view. This is a great way to introduce all the main characters of this series. The only thing that bothered me was that when the point of view changed, it would take me, a view sentences and sometimes half a page before I figured out who's POV it was.

Rating

That was the only negative in this novella, great introduction to the series, great characters and a round story makes this novella a 3,5 Star read!!!


Music ~ Panic! At The Disco ~ Nine In The Afternoon

I had to think awhile for the right song came by for this book, and I think I know what is fitting here! Panic! At The Disco!! ~Nine In The Afternoon!!! Why? because of the crazy video, that reminds me of Wonderland with all the clocks!

  1. I like your idea of including a music clip to go with the book. Thanks for letting me know this is a novella. I've seen the book around the blogosphere but hadn't come across that information yet.
