Student Saturday: The Looking Glass Wars - Frank Beddor
The Looking Glass Wars is a three-part series that was inspired by the original books by Lewis Carroll; Alice in Wonderland, and Through the Looking Glass. The story focuses on young Alyss Heart the soon-to-be queen of Wonderland, but Wonderland has an enemy, Genevieve Heart's (The queen) sister Redd. Redd wants to take back the kingdom after being exiled for thirteen years, and if need be by force. Redd and her most trusted minion the cat (a feline-human hybrid assassin) have gathered an army of warriors trained in imagination (A magic-like power used to manipulate the normal world that is fueled by your imagination to take the throne of power. This is a very good Three-part series with lots of action, tragedy, and some love. I would recommend anyone to read these books as they are a good twist on a classic book.
