There’s a moment in this book when I gasped and slammed the book shut. Is that a good thing?
Shutting the book didn’t change the ending, of course, or what Alice was going to have to endure before the last page. Melissa Albert masterfully weaves fairy tale storytelling with modern life, action movie visuals and the twists and turns of a thriller. And maybe you can consider it a compliment that I had bad dreams a few nights while reading it.
