From the author of the Fate series and The Deep End of the Sea comes a fantastical romantic adventure that has Alice tumbling down the strangest rabbit hole yet.
After years in Wonderland, Alice has returned to England as an adult, desperate to reclaim sanity and control over her life. An enigmatic gentleman with an intriguing job offer too tempting to resist changes her plans for a calm existence, though. Soon, she’s whisked to New York and initiated into the Collectors’ Society, a secret organization whose members confirm that famous stories are anything but straightforward and that what she knows about the world is only a fraction of the truth.
It’s there she discovers villains are afoot—ones who want to shelve the lives of countless beings. Assigned to work with the mysterious and alluring Finn, Alice and the rest of the Collectors’ Society race against a doomsday clock in order to prevent further destruction . . . but will they make it before all their endings are erased?
*This is the first book in the Collectors' Society series
My Review: Alice all grown up after years in Wonderland! Uh love this idea and the story was done just right. And all grown up is right, as in New Adult way, so just be ready for that. Oh and she is pretty killer, older, stronger, and can kick some ass.
Now back in England, and Alice has to grab hold on reality. She gets a ticket to it when she is offered a job in New York. the Collectors Society is not just any type of group. They find the true story behind famous stories that have been told.
Alice and Fin are probably my favorites, though I still liked the others in the book. The characters and the world was written so perfectly and just the right amount of detail to make you picture everything perfectly. I fell for the book quickly and nearly read it all in one sitting (damn work getting in the way). I was super happy that I will have more to read and have the chance to dive back in and fall in love with the next chapter of Alice's world. This book was just perfect!
