Reviews

Gr 4-7-After expelling her evil Aunt Redd from Wonderland's throne in The Looking Glass Wars (Dial, 2006; Scholastic Audiobooks, 2006), Frank Beddor's sequel (Dial, 2007) finds Queen Alyss dealing with the burden of ruling the kingdom and negotiating with King Arch from the neighboring country of Borderland. Arch quickly proves himself to be a dangerous enemy with elaborate plans to overthrow Alyss and her kingdom. Meanwhile, Redd is working her villainy to regain her power and wreak vengeance on her niece. There is plenty of violence, gore, and battle action here, and readers will find the pace breathtaking. Gerard Doyle skillfully captures the tempo of this fantasy and provides each character with a unique voice. His excellent presentation will create new fans and captivate current devotees.-Deanna Romriell, Salt Lake City Public Library, UT Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
