If you make a deal with evil, be prepared for the consequences.
When a metal dragon kidnaps Alice, Hatter gathers the troops and charges off to rescue her. If only things were so uncomplicated. In the Ivory Kingdom, they find upheaval of the worst kind and all heading to civil war spearheaded by a man known as the Bandersnatch.
Turmoil and the terror of fighting against a giant wolf, the Bandersnatch is bad enough, but when the Ivory Queen’s secrets are exposed, Hatter and Alice face off in a battle of wills and points of view. How can Alice trust a woman who deceived them? Why can’t Hatter see the bigger picture? If they don’t reconcile their differences, more could be at risk than the Ivory Kingdom.
More questions than answers bombard them in their quest for truth and freedom for all. Who is stealing children? What dark secret overshadows the Ivory Kingdom? Can they avoid the Bandersnatch’s clutches? And most important of all, who can they trust?
Join forces with Alice, Hatter, old friends and new, and be prepared to discover that trust and risk are often two sides of the same coin in this next Beyond Wonderland novel.

Guest Review from Donna
What I think you should know:
Lost In Wonderland by Tabitha Bouldin is the second book in the Beyond Wonderland Series. It is a Fantasy, Steampunk, retelling/ mashup with a Christian perspective. This book is a mashup of Through the Looking Glass and Little Red Riding Hood. I would not recommend that you start the series with this book, for the most enjoyment you need to know the background on the story from the first book.
What I think about this book:
I am admittedly not a huge Alice In Wonderland fan, however I was quickly entranced with the first book in the series and very excited to read this one! In this story Bouldin takes Alice, Hatter, and Alpha on a Wild Adventure in the Ivory Kingdom. Our heroes have to overcome great adversity to rescue the kingdom that is held captive by a giant metal dragon and even crazier animatronics. Queen Ivory was a bit of a puzzle to me, but I adored Scarlett and Faolan. This book was even better than the first, which is really an accomplishment! I cannot wait to see where Alice goes next!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Celebrate Lit, this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.

More from Tabitha
Writing Lost in Wonderland was such a wonderful creative outlet for my imagination. After writing Madness in Wonderland, I knew I wasn’t ready to let these characters go. They were anxious for new challenges and new adventures that allowed them to explore more of the world they’d just freed.
Of course, new characters were a must, and Scarlett stepped right up to have her story told.
While Madness in Wonderland is an Alice in Wonderland and Frankenstein mashup, for Lost in Wonderland, I went with a Through the Looking Glass and Red Riding Hood mashup that gave a deeper well of storytelling for Wonderland and brought all sorts of new creatures into the mix.
Alice and Hatter face new obstacles in their journey, and Scarlett is not one to be left behind. Especially when he has her loyal guard Faolan by her side.
Prepare to set sail across a new Wonderland.
