Frank Beddor Frank Beddor, author of The Looking Glass Wars, lives in Los Angeles. Frank is the CEO of Automatic Pictures, a film, television, and interactive game production company. He produced the hit film There's Something About Mary, which grossed $385 million worldwide for 20th Century Fox. Telling the ‘real’ story behind Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, Frank Beddor’s trilogy – The Looking Glass Wars Seeing Red and ArchEnemy – earned him a place on the New York Times bestseller list   Beddor began his producing career selling his first original story treatment Whiteout to Paramount Pictures, which tells the story of the 10th Mountain Division, the first skiing and climbing troops that fought a secret mission during World War II. Beddor hails from Minneapolis, and attended the University of Utah, where he trained for the U.S. Ski Team. One of the world's foremost freestyle skiers, Beddor competed in the sport for five years, and was twice crowned World Champion. He began his entertainment career doing endorsements and commercials when director Peter Markle hired him to perform the skiing stunts for the comedy Hot Dog The Movie. He then doubled John Cusack for the actor's ski stunts in the comedy Better Off Dead.  Trading the alpine slopes for the Hollywood Hills, Frank has acted alongside Emilio Estevez, Carrie Fisher, Chris Penn, Jennifer Tilly and Kevin Dillon.

I had massive hopes for the sequel to the Looking Glass Wars. Slightly disappointed as this book focuses more on individual characters rather than the plot and when it finally gets going we are left on a cliffhanger (at the end).
But it's definitely worth reading and I hope the next book is as good as (if not better than) the first book!!

Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed the first book as it was full of very good ideas and I'm a huge Alice in Wonderland fan. This sequel however is very disappointing. It does nothing to fill out the characters at all and they even become more two dimensional than the first book, especially Alyce. Imaginative ideas from the first book are replaced with endless battles and I found myself very bored of it. There are some good bits, such as the painting bit (don't want to give too much away), so it's not all bad it just could have been so much more.

I much preferred this to the first, which isn't brilliantly written in places. I got quite sucked into it and found it quite an exciting, pacey read (despite the reasonably obvious twist about Hatter Maddigan). I loved the ending, too - an excellent cliff hanger. It's quite violent though, the deaths are a bit graphic in places, I don't think I'd want any younger children reading it. But I certainly enjoyed it, and it seems that the next book is available (US only I think - it's not available on Amazon til January as paperback only) so I will definitely have to look into getting that, I want to know what happens next!

I have been trying to find this trilogy for ages and it was such a great price too. I love the fact that this is Alice in Wonderland as you've never read it before.

I feel not as described. Pages extremely yellow and look like they may fall apart after one read. Ex library book with a pen mark drawen on the top.

Alyss and her followers have almost put to right all the damage inflicted upon Wonderland by Redd in The Looking Glass Wars. They've rebuilt the palace and restored order and peace but Alyss still doesn't feel comfortable with her role as queen, she's weary with the ceaseless demands put upon her but her every growing identity crisis has to be put on hold because violence and unrest has come back into the Queendom, could it have anything to do with Redd's mysterious disappearance or with the scheming untrustworthy king Arch.

Yes as the title suggests Redd is back and in a mind to get her throne back and to do so she plans to recruit an army from the evilest misfits from...Earth, including ex-wonderlands with some very unsavoury talents in black imagination.

I thought Beddor's first book was written rather immaturely; the guy seized upon an interesting concept that was just waiting to be explored, but he imbued it with, hesitant writing, poorly constructed characters and a stuttering plot. But most importantly I found a lack of sincerity to his writing; the prose was filled with gimmicks, silly names and one dimensional characters. I say all this because I had hoped that Beddor would improve upon his writing with this second book and understand the importance of making a trilogy tightly developed but reading this my issues with the first book appear to be inherent flaws not issues that were ironed out with the second book.
