The Looking Glass Wars, Book Three
I loved reading the first two in the trilogy about an alternate Wonderland world, The Looking Glass Wars and Seeing Redd, and so I can't wait to read this book. I couldn't manage to find a synopsis (anyone? anyone?) but I DID find the cover art. Whoa! I love the bright white-blues in the background, and have always loved the font they chose. From the title, it seems as if the third book might be mostly about Arch, who has proved himself a formidable enemy at the end of Book Two.
For those of you who haven't had the opportunity to read this trilogy yet, Frank Beddor reimagines Alice's world. The story of Alice in Wonderland as told by Lewis Carroll, he claims, which made the story sound like a laughable children's tale, got everything wrong. Alice's real name is Alyss, and she's the princess of Wondertropolis. A mutiny by her evil aunt, Redd, forces Alyss to escape into the other world--our world--where everyone laughs at her imagination until even she begins to doubt herself. But the real adventure and danger only begins when Alice/Alyss must return to Wonderland and reclaim her right to the throne.
I love retellings, and this one is a particularly well written one. I suggest you read it before the third book comes out! :)
ArchEnemy comes out in hardcover from Dial on October 15, 2009.
Also, it's fellow blogger Carol(ina)'s 17th birthday today! Happy birthday Carol! I didn't know until Laura told us, but Carol is my birthday buddy now, haha. You can't get much closer to my birthday (the 19th--oh, tomorrow!) than hers. She's currently living it up in Florida (lucky girl!), but stop by her blog (where she put up a gorgeous Waiting on Wednesday post) and wish her a good one!
