Queen of Hearts Saga #3
The final book in the twisted YA trilogy re-imagining of the origin story of the Queen of Hearts. Dinah has lost everyone she ever loved. Her brother was brutally murdered. The wicked man she believed was her father betrayed her. Her loyal subjects have been devastated by war. And the boy she gave her heart to broke it completely. Now a dark queen has risen out of the ashes of her former life. Fury is blooming inside Dinah, poisoning her soul and twisting her mind. All she has left is Wonderland and her crown, and her obsession to fight for both. But the war rages on, and Dinah could inherit a bloodstained throne. Can a leader filled with love and rage ever be the ruler her kingdom needs? Or will her all-consuming wrath bring Wonderland to its knees? This is not a story of happily ever after. This is the story of the Queen of Hearts.
Once again this book’s cover is amazing, not only do they follow the theme of the story but also the two previous books. I loved the black cover it made the book stand out with its matte finish. Neither prequels were books that I would reread and my hope for this book is low.
The plot twists are unbelievable and twisted! Dina’s character has developed a great deal and just when you thought she had it all figured out her life crumbles once again next to her.
The start of the book has a slow pace. Going on and on and on through their journey towards the castle, WHERE is the action?
I don’t have anything else better or worse to say. This book was just “MEH” for me. I love a good retailing of childhood stories but Colleen did a poor work of organizing the storyline.
