Now a dark queen has risen out of the ashes of her former life. Fury is blooming inside Dinah, poisoning her soul and twisting her mind. All she has left is Wonderland and her crown, and her obsession to fight for both. But the war rages on and Dinah could inherit a blood-stained throne.

Can a leader filled with love and rage ever be the ruler her kingdom needs? Or will her all-consuming wrath bring Wonderland to its knees?

Review quote

"Every good villain deserves an origin story, and Oakes offers a fascinating glimpse into the mad queen's complex and heartbreaking past. The novel offers some wonderful reinventions of Carroll's classic, and fans of Alice's more sinister elements will appreciate Oakes' macabre touches."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
