Where book one focused mainly on Alice and her time in and out of Wonderland, her arrival at The Society and the need for her to return to the place she was exiled from, having to face her demons, this book gave more insight into Finn and his life and timeline; the hatred and anger he harbors towards Tom. Once again, it was a thrill ride to step into different timelines with these characters, to experience a plethora of different worlds and identities.
This book was also a complete mystery, from the why S. Todd and Rosemary and company were deleting timelines, to whom they were working for. Then there was the question of who Gabe really was and why he had more than one identity. Who was the mole? Every flip of the page just took me deeper into a tangled web of deceit, lies and secrets, and I couldn't wait to unravel each mystery.
The final moments of this story were harrowing and I felt like I was on an adrenalin high just reading the last few chapters. And when the last words were read I wasn't sure if I wanted to cry, or scream, maybe even punch something or throw my Kindle across the room. I need more of this amazing series, and I need it NOW!!!
The series focuses around Alice Reeve (yes Alice from the Wonderland books) and a society who battle to save literary timelines and characters. We get to meet lots of famous characters from all sorts of novels including from Huckleberry Finn, Sweeney Todd, Frankenstein, Pride and Prejudice and many more. The story starts right after the dramatic ending of book one, with the society and timelines in danger.
This instalment is much more Finn-centric because we get his POV too. When you're faced with a reworking of a story it's always interesting to see how the author sticks to or varies from the characters original story. With Finn I already knew his story but seeing it in depth from his POV and getting to know more about his past was good but really heartbreaking.
Alice seems to be a little more together than she was previously, but the story still focuses on the issue of reality and madness. The overall concept of the series is really clever and the way in which Heather Lyons seamlessly ties past stories together is great.
Alice and Finn work together to help save the timelines. I've gotta say that I love their relationship and it's nice to see some sweet and steamy scenes of them together. I do however, have a huge soft spot for a certain King!
I loved getting to see some of my favourite characters from the previous book and meeting some new ones. One character in particular made me really nervous!
There are lots of unanswered questions and after THAT ending I'm equal parts intrigued and nervous for the next instalment in the series!
I received a review copy.
