Publisher's Summary

Long before she was the terror of Wonderland, she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love.

Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland and a favorite of the unmarried King of Hearts, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, all she wants is to open a shop with her best friend. But according to her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for the young woman who could be the next queen.

Then Cath meets Jest, the handsome and mysterious court joker. For the first time, she feels the pull of true attraction. At the risk of offending the king and infuriating her parents, she and Jest enter into an intense secret courtship. Cath is determined to define her own destiny and fall in love on her terms. But in a land thriving with magic, madness, and monsters, fate has other plans.

In her first stand-alone teen audiobook, the New York Times best-selling author dazzles us with a prequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

Incredible!

If you want to know why the queen of hearts is as she is in Alice in wonderland this is a good book. It has kept me engaged in the adventure of dreams and the impossible.

Fantastic Narrator

Rebecca Soler is the only narrator who can so flawlessly make the many characters of Hearts come to life. In case y’all didn’t know, she narrates the Lunar Chronicles as well, and I think she shines here even more than she does with that series. The accents, her cadence, the interpretation— the voice she gave Mr Rabbit is exactly what I would imagine a talking rabbit sounds like! Rebecca made this book 10x better than it was to begin with!

A wonderful take on a known character

This is a great story about the known Alice in Wonderland villain the Queen of Hearts. Toward the end the events get a bit predictable but besides that it’s a great story!!

Wonderful!

I love that Ms. Meyer captured the Red Queen so perfectly. I am 51 yo and I loved this book just as much as my 17 yo student who also read it.

I loved Cinder and the Lunar Chronicles. I enjoyed Heartless though I have never been a fan of Alice in Wonderland.

Do yourself a favor and devour this book

I loved it. My heart hurts but as soon as the last word was read, I dove back in and reread it. The writing, the narration, everything, it was superb!

Must read

This was a little confusing in the beginning but developed beautifully. I actually have gone back and listened to my favorite chapters. I love her work and will continue reading it. The narrator is also very very good.

Just Okay

I love Wonderland, but I kept waiting for this to hook its teeth into me and get interesting. It was a modge podge of Disney's animated cartoon and the new one. I give it a meh. It was just trying too hard and lost itself along the way. The narrator did fairly well.

A truly miserable story

The writing was great, the idea was fabulous, the narrator was one of the best I've ever heard.

That's all the good that can be said about this story. It's one of the most miserable, least satisfying books I've ever had the misfortune to read. It went downhill at the end and I kept thinking, "it can't end like this." Then it got worse and ended.

I'm not just throwing a tantrum because not everyone lived happily ever after. NOBODY lived happily ever after. If I wanted to hear a story about how everyone hates everyone else and is miserable for the rest of their lives I'd watch the news.

Seriously, who is the intended audience? The miserable because they love company?

Perfect narration, but disappointed with the story

This story started out good, but it quickly became too much about the details and less story-telling. I think this story is probably best for those who are big Alice in Wonderland fans. I had not read the book in years so I did not get some of the references or quotes.

I loved the narrator and the Lunar Chronicles, but this book was unfortunately a little painful to finish.

Not what I was expecting and that was a good thing

Any additional comments?

This story was not what I was expecting. Marissa Meyer is a wonderful author. She picks great tales and turns them into something modern and magical. I highly recommend this for fans of Alice in Wonderland. However be prepared to feel very emotional during this book. Spend the credit, it is worth it.
