James Riggs lives a normal life with a mind-numbing job, an overbearing boss, and a demanding fiancée. Then he witnesses the murder of his best friend. Saved from the murderer by a strange man in a white suit, James is cast down a hole and into a world he always believed was a kid’s story. Wonderland.
But things have changed since Alice’s visit. The Knave of Hearts has seized the Heart throne, conquered all of Wonderland with his steam-powered technological marvels, and rules the land with an iron fist.
Aided by the Mad Hatter’s daughter, James journeys to discover why he has been brought to Wonderland and how the tattoo on his arm could be the key to Wonderland’s salvation—or its destruction.

What Reviewers Are Saying
“If you like steampunk and Wonderland, this is a must-read. We get to visit old favorite characters from the original stories, and meet new ones. Anderson stays true to Lewis Carol’s world and characters, but adds so many of his own ideas that Wonderland feels, well, wondrous again.” — Heather Blackwood, Amazon US Review
“To avoid spoilers I do not want to discuss the plot but I will just say that this one is a page turner. Even during scenes that are not “action-oriented” Mr. Anderson keeps the reader interested and his unique view of Wonderland keeps the reader surprised and guessing at every turn.” — Michael Rose, Amazon US Review
“The concept of this book is amazing and so is the story itself. It is clever and entertaining and I couldn’t put it down. It isn’t the longest or most difficult read but it left me wanting more. I love the different take on well known Wonderland characters – very well thought out clever stuff.” — Peri, Amazon UK Review
“I don’t like to reveal or spoil the story with my reviews, just buy this book- it’s a gripper! You won’t want to put it down until you’re finished. When I was finished, I found myself looking for more pages, and rereading passages. This wonderland has kingdoms with wars, flying ships and other fun stuff. James is a wonderful character (no pun intended).” — Donna Lawrence, Amazon US Review
