Mad about the Hatter by Dakota Chase

This isn’t his sister’s Wonderland….

Henry never believed his older sister, Alice’s, fantastic tales about the world down the rabbit hole. When he’s whisked away to the bizarre land, his best chance for escape is to ally himself with the person called the Mad Hatter. Hatter—an odd but strangely attractive fellow—just wants to avoid execution. If that means delivering “Boy Alice” to the Queen of Hearts at her Red Castle, Hatter will do what he has to do to stay alive. It doesn’t matter if Henry and Hatter find each other intolerable. They’re stuck with each other.

Along their journey, Henry and Hatter must confront what they’ve always accepted as truth. As dislike grows into tolerance and something like friendship, the young men see the chance for a closer relationship. But Wonderland is a dangerous place, and first they have to get away with their lives.@goodreads

 I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the cover is beautiful!

As you can read from the blurb, it's not Alice returning to Wonderland, it's her brother Henry. They call him Boy Alice in the book when they first meet him.

I won't give away how Henry ends up in Wonderland, but he never believed Alice ever went to such a place. She is much older now with a family and he still didn't believe her, until he woke up there himself. He remembers words being said to him about finding Hatter. Poor old Henry thinks he's had a break with reality.

I think this is a really good re-telling of Wonderland. I must say the Red Queen got on my nerves so bad at one point I wanted to scream for someone to be off with her head, but I digress!

Henry goes on a sort of journey with Hatter, they go through some scary stuff, but the whole world is told so beautifully. The author really does a good job in explaining all of the things in Wonderland they come across. And the snark Henry was handing out left, right and center was hilarious! There is even a little romance thrown in the mix.

We do get to see Alice in the book for a little bit and that was a great edition to the story along with a little surprise person thrown in for good measure.

I really did enjoy this book, I have read other books about Wonderland, but some of them left me confused and trying to figure out what is going on. This book didn't do any of that, it was all told in a most excellent way and while I still don't ever want to visit Wonderland, it was nice to visit in this book :) 

*I would like to thank NETGALLEY and HARMONY INK PRESS for making this book available for in exchange for my honest review.*
