Curiouser and Curiouser by Melanie Karsak



To save the Hatter, Alice must work with the one man she despises so much that she might still love him.

* * * 

Alice thought she’d turned over a new leaf. No more working for Jabberwocky. No more making deals with the ruthless Queen of Hearts. No more hanging around The Mushroom with tinkers, tarts, scoundrels, and thieves in London's criminal underbelly. But she’d been bonkers to dream.

Hatter’s reckless behavior leads Alice back to the one person she never wanted to see again, Caterpillar. Pulled into Caterpillar's mad schemes, Alice must steal a very big diamond from a very royal lady. The heist is no problem for this Bandersnatch. But protecting her heart from the man she once loved? Impossible

Review: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This book was amazing! It had all of my favorite elements of steampunk: the clothing, the machines, the airships, and the gears and clockwork animals and gadgets. I want the hat that the Hatter created with the clockwork butterfly! The other part that I thought was done really well was the Crystal Palace. The depth of descriptions the author used, you could believe that such a place existed. Then the Red Queen was the perfect villain. Overall this was one of the best retellings of Alice in Wonderland that I have ever read. I love how the author took all of the characters and made them part of this underground crime ring.
