Good morning and welcome to In the Books, featuring Dorothy Through the Looking Glass by Ron Glick.
Note: I received a free copy of the ebook in exchange for an honest review.
The story picks up right where the first book, The Wizard in Wonderland, left off. As the story commences, we learn the land of Oz and Wonderland have a shared past and both Alice and Dorothy are caught in the middle of a power struggle they never imagined. We get to see some old favorites make an appearance (I love the Cheshire Cat!) and a few twists and turns I didn’t expect.
I have to be honest as say I’ve been (impatiently) waiting for this to come out after reading the first book and it only served to fuel my craving to hear more of the story. My personal favorite is how the author writes each character true to form in a seamless blending of L. Frank Baum’s and Lewis Carrol’s styles. It’s just as impressive as the weaving of the multiple worlds throughout the book’s pages.
If you’re a fan of the classics and want to experience something new, then this could be just the thing. It’s a fast, yet thorough read that’ll keep you turning pages.
