This story was part of the Devil Take Me Anthology. It is now released as a stand alone novella.
Leave it to Rhys Ford to combine “Alice in Wonderland” with a deal with the devil. If you ever wanted to know what happened after Alice left the citizens of Wonderland, well Ford answers that question in beautiful and fantastic ways.
Xander Spade has to resurrect his former life as the Ace of Spades in order to bring an end to the threats to Wonderland. When another young girl crosses in the realm, the chaos that could cause brings to light other dangers and twisted plots to change their reality.
Along with Jean Michel, the former Knave of Hearts, the two must make decisions that will have repercussions for their world and their own destinies. Rhys Ford takes on Lewis Carroll’s world and imbues it with her own voice. The combination is fascinating and wonderful. There is such beauty in just the language of this story. Then the story itself is so fascinating. The result is a great book for fans of fantasy.
