I received a copy of this book from the author to provide an honest review.
Death of the Mad Hatter was written in Alice Mae and Ryley’s narration. It tells a story of Alice Mae, or Al who is the assistant of Queen of Heart. Then there’s Ryley who has moved around many times to keep his secret about his father safe. Ryley has no knowledge of the world of Wonderland, but things began to change when Alice Mae pokes into his life.
Wow! I absolutely love Sarah Pepper’s version of Alice in Wonderland. I love how there was this mystery around Ryley and the bleeding heart prophesy. At first, it took me a while to get used to Sarah Pepper’s writing, but in the end, I can’t bring myself to put down the book. I wanted to know what is it with Alice Mae, how does Ryley fits into the World of Wonderland and whether or not the prophecy will come true.
There are lots of interesting characters in this book. I think Sarah Pepper succeeds in keeping the characters in their character while altering the plot to make it her own story. I love both Alice and Ryley. I love their interaction and how they drive each other crazy and slowly fall for each other. I love how the story progress. It was definitely well planned out. I definitely enjoy reading this one and would recommend Death of the Mad Hatter to Alice in Wonderland fans.
