For centuries, Wonderland thrived as the domain of beautiful bedlam and unapologetic madness. It was a place like no other. All it took was one girl slipping in through the cracks of the universe to start chaos spiraling toward order. In the 150 years since Alice’s visit, the realm has become tainted—almost normal. Rabbits in waistcoats and playing card minions are little more than creatures of myth, and Wonderland is literally falling to pieces.
For Gwen, Rose, 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.
I thought that I’d squeeze this novella in-between reads. I was intrigued by the synopsis as I love all things Alice In Wonderland. There has been many re-tellings of Alice in Wonderland, but I’m still always interested to read another author’s take.
Follow The White Rabbit stays true to the classic story of Alice in Wonderland, but it is still a fresh take. It has quite an eerie feel to it. I found it to be very well written. It was very descriptive which enabled the reader to visualise the Wonderland that Kellie Sheridan had created. The point of view changed with every chapter, which I found confusing to begin with, as I didn’t feel that I knew enough about the character before it changed again.
Kellie Sheridan didn’t use the original names of the characters in the Alice In Wonderland story by Lewis Carroll. Instead clues were given to each character’s identity throughout the novella.
Follow The White Rabbit is a novella and it just felt far too short. I know there are more books to come, but it felt like the action had just started going and then it abruptly finished, which was a shame as I was really enjoying it.
