Review: The Queen of Hearts, Vol. 1 by Colleen Oakes

The Queen of Hearts, Volume One by Colleen Oakes
Source: purchased

Since I will be reviewing Volume Two in this series later this month, I wanted to read Volume One first. I had actually been wanting to read this book since it came out but hadn't had a chance to until now. Perfect timing and a perfect read while vacationing up north.

The Queen of Hearts is an entertaining backstory of Alice in Wonderland's Queen of Hearts. Dinah is the princess of Wonderland and soon will be coronated as the Queen, next to her father. As the day approaches, a surprise half sister arrives along with mysterious notes. Dinah is in danger and must figure out who she can trust to survive.

I really liked how the characters we all know from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland are reimagined for this tale but are still recognizable. There is a perfect mix of suspense with the YA angst of being a misunderstood teenage girl. A lot of fun, and of course ends before all plots are brought to a conclusion. Good thing Volume Two is soon to be released. 

Happy Reading!
