    1. After the plague broke out in Phoenix and people began to turn into the living dead aka momeraths Alice and her sister Dinah's lives changed considerably. The two were originally adopted but eventually their father walked out on them when Alice was still young. Their mother died from the plague out break. Now they live together in a community that has been fortified against the outside so that the momerath can't get in. When Dinah contracts the plague, Alice is desperate to find a way to help he [...]

    2. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to the author, J. M. Sullivan, and the publisher, Pen Name Publishing, for this opportunity.Alice Carroll lived her life lost between the pages of a book. That was until her sister, Dinah, contracted the deadly Momerath Virus and is slowly deteriorating into a zombie-like figure, intent on the destruction of all other humans. A cure has been hinted at and Alice decided she will do whatever it takes to procure it and save [...]

    3. 4.5 starsOriginally posted on: The Quirky Book Nerd“Always protect your Queen.”I always love a good retelling—if it is a retelling with a dark and gritty twist to it, even better. For me, this novel checks off all the boxes. It is a wonderful reimagining of Alice in Wonderland that has plenty of its own creativity and uniqueness, while devotedly paying homage to the original work in clever ways. It even takes the classic zombie plague idea and turns it on its head as Sullivan puts her own [...]

    4. oh dear. things that aren't original: - alice in wonderland retellings- zombies - alice in wonderland retellings with zombies- zombies caused by a Plague (view spoiler)[how THE FUCK did that even work??? because the zombie "virus" was caused by a medicine/serum that had side effects, so how the HELL did it get virus capabilities?!?! i thought the writer was a science teacher?!?!? um?!?!?! (hide spoiler)]- LOVE TRIANGLES- love triangles where one boy is blond and the other is a brunette- one dime [...]

    5. “How cheerfully he seems to grin, how neatly spreads his claws, and welcomes little fishes in, with gently smiling jaws.” A terrible plague breaks out in Phoenix, Arizona, spreading like wildfire, and people have been turning into vicious zombie-like creatures through out the entire area. When Alice Carroll's adopted sister Dinah contracts the virus, she decides to find a way to save her. Unless she can figure out how to cure Dinah, her beloved sister will end up being worse than dead - she' [...]

    6. Filled with danger, excitement, and of course, a bevy of references to Carroll's classic, Wonderland fans will be drawn into the thrilling world of Wanderland for a journey unlike any Alice has ever seen.

    7. I received an ARC of ALICE on e-book from the publisher, Pen Name Publishing, for an honest review.This is a definite 5 out of 5 stars! ~ As a reader, I was pulled in right from the very beginning. I can't even begin to tell you how many great filmed comparisons I have for this novel: Resident Evil, The Walking Dead, X-Files, 28 Days Later, Land of the Dead, etc. The reason for the film comparisons is because this novel reads like a fully produced movie. It has action, adventure, intensity, ligh [...]

    8. The idea of "Zombieland" would have been great if there wasn't already another author who wrote the chronicles of zombieland with an Alice in Wonderland full of zombies, but also I found the book didn't do a thing for me, sadly.I guess the idea was good, Alice going to find a cure for her sister an ecountering a myriad of Wonderland characters converted to sit well with the Wanderland of the book, but there was something I didn't click with.

    9. Firstly, I feel the need to point out that, regarding reading, Alice: The Wanderland Chronicles came to my attention at a somewhat tough time. Suffering a massive, and wildly disappointing reading slump that lasted weeks, I was jaded. Of the last five books that I have read, three were okay at best and two I just couldn’t complete. So, the stakes were high for me personally. It was also only a few weeks back that I had been searching for some kind of dark, original take on fairy-tale stories; [...]

    10. Reviewed on whisperingstoriesEven though there are many out there, this is the first Alice in Wonderland retelling I’ve read. It was a good choice though, because it combines Alice with flesh eating zombies.The biggest Alice references here were the character names, with some shared traits with their Wonderland counterparts but the story itself didn’t stick painfully close to the original, the author made this story her own and it was glorious! Alice herself is a little bit lacking self awar [...]

    11. "Twinkle, twinkle, Alice"I tend to be wary of retellings because it feels like authors just use the name of a beloved classic to better advertise themselves not minding the fact that their work doesn't bear any clear resemblance to its original canon. Alice: The Wanderland Chronicles was not in this category. The subtle hints to the original Alice in Wonderland made me squeal with absolute delight! I mean, we had Dr. Matt Hatta and Dr. Waite R. Abbott, how is that not brilliant?!"In that directi [...]

    12. Think Alice in Wonderland mixed with The Walking Dead. This will probably be my favourite retelling of Alice, ever.Alice and her sister Dinah live in the Sector, a safe place where the Momerath (zombies) can't get in. When the sisters go on a scavenge hunt to a pharmacy and the library, they encounter a Momerath and barely escape. When Dinah falls ill and begins showing the signs of the virus that turns people into Momerath, Alice takes it upon herself to venture out on her own and find a cure f [...]

    13. Review of Alice, The Wanderland ChroniclesBy J.M. SullivanRelease date May 16, 2017WOW!!! Excellent retake on Alice in Wonderland! This is not your cute Disney kids show. Even for those who are not familiar with the classic story, this story is a run-away train with non-stop action, colorful characters and all the tension a reader could ask for. J.M. Sullivan is an author to watch for. Her writing pulls the reader into the story and you find yourself holding your breath one minute and cheering t [...]

    14. I love dystopian novels a lot though I admit I haven't read one in quite a while. Picking up this book, it was obvious from the beginning that it was going to be good. I loved everything about it from the first moment. Alice is a girl who is living with her sister is a haven/community in the aftermath of the Apocalypse brought on by cannibalistic monsters called Momerath (I still think of them as zombies). The Sector (the community they are) is a little town which is safe from the horrors of the [...]

    15. I probably enjoyed this book way more than I should have. It was fun, fast paced and the writing was pretty darn good for a debut YA author. But I think many will have mixed reviews Wonderland and I: a quick backgroundI love Wizard of Oz, my husband loves Alice in Wonderland (so much so he is working on half sleeve tattoos that are both Alice themed, awesome right?!). When I read Dorothy Must Die, a couple years ago, I hated it. Steampunk + Oz = me stoked; but I was sorely let down. BUT Oz is a [...]

    16. I was provided an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Alice in Wonderland meets The Walking Dead. There’s no other way to describe the plot.This was great; the intrigue, the action, the pacing, the characters. It was very close to being perfect. It actually would have been if I had been able to truly fall for the characters. However, I felt a distance between me and Alice. I couldn’t truly make one with her. I still really liked her though as much as the other characters.I lov [...]

    17. Disclaimer: Received this ebook from J.M. Sullivan for an honest review through Coffee Break- YA/NAI have to say that this book was not my cup of tea. Zombies just seem like useless violent creatures. They have no purpose for their violence other than to be violent which is dumb in my opinion. I thought that I may get a better story with the inclusion of the Alice in Wonderland theme to a post apacolyptic zombie world but that wasn't the case here. The issue resides in the fact that this book wa [...]

    18. Alice: The Wanderland Chronicles was both my first retelling of Alice and my first zombie related book. It did not disappoint on either count. While I tend to avoid horror stories in general, Sullivan manages to keep the balance between making it an enjoyable read, without shrinking away from the horrors of fighting the Momerath. She also masterfully adapted the characters to her story, in a blend that was both true to the original Alice story and also very much her own. I absolutely loved Alice [...]

    19. DNF at 50% The Alice in Wonderland references were way too close to the source material and the whole zombie thing. . . just not my thing!

    20. I got this book to review through NetGalley. I was immediately interested in the fact that it was an Alice in Wonderland retelling. I was a bit unsure about the whole zombie theme to it. It ended up being an interesting blend of Resident Evil-like post-apocalyptic zombie tale and Alice in Wonderland re-imaging. This is the first book in a new series (I thought it was stand alone but it’s not).This was a well written novel and overall I ended up enjoying it. I liked the characters and thought t [...]

    21. Ms. Sullivan,You are an excellent writer. I was unable to put down your book. Every turn of a page brought mystery, danger, and the common statement " just one more chapter" several chapters ago. I am eagerly awaiting your next book!!!!!!!!

    22. Disclaimer: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review as apart of the Coffee Break - YA/NA read to review. Also I am not used to making long and somewhat detailed reviews so please bear with me.3.75/ 5 starsI enjoyed the writing and I found the plot interesting although at times I was a bit bored. A lot of my felt like the scene between Hatta and Alice where they are talking and fighting was where I got the most bored which know that I think about it is a bit ironic since it [...]

    23. There are so many revisions on this tale. I liked this twist that author, J.M. Sullivan took for this book. Of course, there was the undead but it also had a bit of a dystopian feel to it that I enjoyed. The world of "Wanderland" is not all mystical. In fact, you could call it "upside down". Things you thought you knew about your favorite characters are not the same in this book. For example: Rabbit is a doctor, Mad Hatter is know as Matt Hatta, a mad scientist. the Queen, she is more evil, and [...]

    24. This was brilliant! I'm a bit of a weirdo and love gory things and this has the perfect amount gore. It was very witty and kept me on my toes as I read through. I can't wait for what's next!

    25. Originally posted at The Regal Critiques: reading-is-dreaming-with-open-Huge thanks to J. M. Sullivan & the publisher for providing me with a review copy. :)1. EPIC FIGHT SCENESHonestly, Alice turned out a lot bloodier and gorier than I initially expected - which I, obviously, LOVED. I'm usually ready to skip most fight scenes, because they can quickly get boring, but not here! There were tons of badass fight scenes, and ALL of them were done in a way that made me pay attention to what was h [...]

    26. First of all, I was given an advanced copy of this novel for my honest reviewd I'm so glad I got this privilege!! I've read many retellings of Alice or stories based on the beloved Wonderland I knew and loved that fell short of my hopes and standards. I wanted them to be different, unique, and share my favorite moments or lines from the oh so quotable creation it was. Yet, none shared any connection other than the name of Alice or location of some type of Wonderland. In comes my new friend J.M S [...]

    27. Have I gone mad?Well, I believe if you read an Alice retelling or you're reading a zombie book - yes, yes on some level you have gone mad. But let me tell you something all the best readers are. I was let down by a Zombie/Alice book before,Alice in Zombieland was not what I was hoping for, but this is a true zombie story. The Zombies are violent creatures and they are called Momerath's, they carry a virus and if they bite a person they will become infected. The premise goes like this, a few year [...]

    28. Alice's life has crumpled under the weight of the momerath - the un-dead. The momerath plague has ravaged the world and now it threatens Alice's family. Alice is in search of a cure to save her sister Dinah. Brave, independent, determined Alice leaves the safety of home and enters Wanderland. Wanderland, where momerath roam, the Red Queen reigns and madness is assured. I loved the creative way that all the characters from Carroll's classic appear in this book. This Wanderland is so very differen [...]

    29. This book was Alice in Wonderland meets The Walking Dead. Epic! We follow Alice as she makes her way through Wanderland in the search for a cure to a deadly mutation that her sister has contracted. She meets Chess, The Bug, Hatta and may more on her journey. I love how all the classic Alice in Wonderland elements are weaved throughout this dystopian style read. Five stars for J.M. Sullivan.
