My 15th book this year.)
Cath lives in the world that we know as Wonderland. She is known for her delicious baked treats and also for being the daughter of the Marchioness of Rock Turtle Cove. Having captured the interest of the King of Hearts she must choose between her dream of owning a bakery or to become the Queen of Hearts (every girls dream except her own).
The King wants his Queen, but Cath’s eyes have wandered onto a very unlikely character, Jest the Joker. She battles her emotions and doesn’t know if she should follow her head or her heart. She wants the opposite of what everyone expects from her and life just keeps getting more complicated.
With magnificent characters brought to life, full of attitude, emotion, unexpected turns, malice, dishonesty, beauty and wonder, this book is a glimpse into “Alice’s Wonderland”.
I absolutely loved this plot. Quite the unexpected ending which left much disappointment, but putting the ending aside, this book was full of life.
Heartless made “Alice in Wonderland” all that much better. We get to know many characters such as the Mad Hatter, Jest the Joker, the Raven and many more. The first half of the book was magical and wonderful as we are pulled through wonderland, but then things began to change. The ending was too abrupt but it made sense as to the title of the book.
I wish for the perfect fairytale ending and I kept believing it was going to happen. Even with what i saw as flaws, this book is well worth reading. I wish there was a follow on for this book.
