Alice (The Chronicles of Alice, #1)

A mind-bending new novel inspired by the twisted and wondrous works of Lewis Carroll…

In a warren of crumbling buildings and desperate people called the Old City, there stands a hospital with cinderblock walls which echo the screams of the poor souls inside.

In the hospital, there is a woman. Her hair, once blond, hangs in tangles down her back. She doesn’t remember why

In a warren of crumbling buildings and desperate people called the Old City, there stands a hospital with cinderblock walls which echo the screams of the poor souls inside.

In the hospital, there is a woman. Her hair, once blond, hangs in tangles down her back. She doesn’t remember why she’s in such a terrible place. Just a tea party long ago, and long ears, and blood…

Then, one night, a fire at the hospital gives the woman a chance to escape, tumbling out of the hole that imprisoned her, leaving her free to uncover the truth about what happened to her all those years ago.

Only something else has escaped with her. Something dark. Something powerful.

And to find the truth, she will have to track this beast to the very heart of the Old City, where the rabbit waits for his Alice.

    “Alice dreamed of blood. Blood on her hands and under her feet, blood in her mouth and pouring from her eyes. The room was filled with it.”

    This is one of the best, darkest and most disturbing retellings I have ever read. The author gets extremely creative with this world, weaving in characters we recognize from the original Alice in Wonderland but telling a very different kind of story. If you like your retellings to stay close to the original, then don’t waste your time with Alice – it is very different.

    The world created here is not our world and it is not Wonderland. It’s a horor-fantasy style setting in a fictional place called the Old City. Ever since Alice returned to her parents after going missing as a child, with blood running down her legs, missing memories, and strange inexplicable abilities, she has been deemed mad.

    Years later, she’s in a hospital. Her only friend is Hatcher – the man who talks to her from the next cell and also remembers very little of his life before. And then one night a fire at the hospital sets them both free, but their suffering is far from over.

    After escaping, they see a shadow of a monster watching them and somehow Hatcher knows what it means: the Jabberwock is free. And there is only one way to kill him. To find it, Alice and Hatcher are forced deep into the bowels of the Old City, a place run by overlords – the Walrus, the Carpenter, the Caterpillar and Cheshire. And somewhere in the darkness of this city fuelled by pain and misery, there lies the truth about Alice’s forgotten past. The Rabbit waits for her.

    These names may be familiar, but favourite characters become terrifyingly monstrous in the author’s hands. I don’t want to sugar coat it in the slightest – this book is an adult, gory and sometimes upsetting fairytale. If you are disturbed by Brom’s The Child Thief or Margo Lanagan’s Tender Morsels, then you will not like this book. Take this quote about a girl who has been “bought”, tortured, and displayed for amusement:

    “The wings were not attached to her shoulders by straps. The girl’s back had been cut from the top of her shoulder to the bottom of her rib cage on both sides of her spine. The beautiful butterfly wings were neatly sewn into the exposed muscle. As the girl flexed her shoulders, the wings would beat.”

    That is the kind of book this is.

    I also need to offer a huge trigger warning. Wendy already mentioned this, but there is a lot of rape in this book. At the end, I felt like I understood why the author chose to include it and why it had importance in the story, but that didn’t make it any less disturbing to read.

    But if you can stomach it, this is definitely worth the read. Very imaginative, magical, creepy and horrifying. A beautifully-written little nightmare.

    SAY HELLO

    to one of the creepiest retellings ever written.

    I didn’t think it was ‘‘gross’’ or anything of the like, but it is really, unmistakably disturbing. And that’s fun. Witnessing the new somber Alice kill a bunch of murderers completely captured my attention. Crazy thing is she still keeps a sliver of innocence through all of that. Maybe because, compared to her friend THE Hatcher, she’s a sweetheart. But she really made me think of a fallen angel ready for vengeance and who would stop at

    I didn’t think it was ‘‘gross’’ or anything of the like, but it is really, unmistakably disturbing. And that’s fun. Witnessing the new somber Alice kill a bunch of murderers completely captured my attention. Crazy thing is she still keeps a sliver of innocence through all of that. Maybe because, compared to her friend THE Hatcher, she’s a sweetheart. But she really made me think of a fallen angel ready for vengeance and who would stop at nothing to get what they want. Eheheh.

    I recall the author did not put much emphasis on the appearance of Hatcher, or Alice, for a matter of fact (not that we need it), so I basically imagined my own sexy Hatcher. He’s ten years older than Alice, and that’s a downer, in my opinion. I reckon he is in his forties and very much feels his age. His being serious all the time seriously never helps in making him sound younger. Plus I don’t remember him ever cracking a joke. Ever. He’s all about intense glares, deep speeches and… killing people, of course.

    Christina Henry’s writing style is one that will one day make her an international best selling author. She might not know it yet, but I have a strong feeling that will happen if she keeps writing books as good as this one! I am a very hard grader on what I believe MAKES a story – the characters. But Miss Henry passed the exam, with a beautiful mark, shall I add. As you know, this is a retelling of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (a book I was never a fan of). So the majority of the protagonists and antagonists we see are from Wonderland. Except, funny thing is the author decided to transform the animals we see in the classic into humans! So the Cheshire cat is… not really a cat. None fully keep their former personalities, seeing that they are considerably mischievous in here, if not completely mad and devious, but you’ll still recognize them in their gestures and voices.

    Something I thought was undeniably ridiculous was how easily Alice kills her targets. It’s not that she’s skilled or anything, although she does show a promising career in assassination, but she’s just so weirdly lucky. She means to kill someone, and because she ‘‘takes them by surprise’’ they’re dead before they can even flinch. Or she stabs them in the back before they even hear the flicker of a movement behind them. They never put up a fight. A tiny bit unrealistic, if you ask me.

    How is it that I always end up my reviews on a negative paragraph? I promise to start with the flaws and end with the wonders next time. This book is worth it. And you DON’T even have to like Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland to enjoy it. But you do need to manage darkness in your stories. Also, it may not be such a good idea to read it before going to bed, just sayin’.

    9/12/15: When I first read ALICE, I had a hard time categorizing it. It was Victorian, but it wasn’t steampumk. It was horror . . . ish. Fortunately, it very obviously a retelling, so at least I had that. BUT. Just having read this article: http://www.dailydot.com/geek/dreadpun… I can now solidly identify it at DREADPUNK. *grins creepily*

    The first thing you should know is that I bloody hate ALICE IN WONDERLAND.

    In fact, with the exception of THE JABBERWOCKEY, which I appreciate for English nerd reasons (nonsense words that make sense b/c masterful command of grammar), I bloody hate Lewis Carroll.

    Too weird. #sorrynotsorry

    I’ve also read an installment or two of Henry’s BLACK WINGS series, and I wasn’t terribly impressed. My top two least favorite subjects in urban fantasy are: dead things and angels. BLACK WINGS is basically about angels dealing with dead things.

    SO. A book from an author I’ve previously not had much luck with, on a subject I’ve loathed since childhood . . .

    You’re probably wondering why on earth I bothered with ALICE.

    Honestly, so did I.

    And if it hadn’t immediately captured my attention, I doubt I’d’ve stuck with it.

    But it did. And I did.

    The second thing you should know is that this book isn’t for the faint of heart.

    This Alice is an adult who’s spent the last ten years institutionalized after stumbling out of the Old City with blood on her thighs, raving about a rabbit.

    YES. That means exactly what you think it means.

    And what happened to Alice isn’t uncommon in this world.

    Usually this kind of thing has me running, screaming in the opposite direction, but ALICE is a perfect example of the difference between dark and crude.

    Dark means real life Bad Things happen. It’s awful, it’s presented as awful, but you’re mostly seeing the aftermath of the awful, not a play-by-play account in real time.

    It’s realistic, but not shockingly so.

    Crude means your face is shoved in the awful b/c this-is-life-suck-it-up-and-deal-with-it-you-pansy-suburban-housewife. Crude means deliberately crass terminology used for the express purpose of making something already awful even more awful.

    I have zero tolerance for crude.

    Dark I can handle.

    And if the perpetrators get what’s coming to them, my bloodthirstiness comes out to play and rolls around in the darkness. Like some kind of fiery-eyed hellhound.

    ALICE is darrrrrrrrrk.

    But it’s also a perfect blend of old school Carroll strangeness and modern urban fantasy (albeit in a more Victorian setting) that I could not put down. I read the whole thing on a Saturday afternoon.

    I loved the characters, especially our two MCs Alice and Hatcher, who were each other’s only solace for eight years in the hospital where they were held. Despite the shared experience and insanity, they are as different as two people can be, their disparate strengths and weaknesses making them that much stronger together.

    The world was bleak, yet fascinating. Make no mistake, Bad Things happen here. BUT. There is also justice, and that makes all the difference.

    ALICE by Christina Henry is hopefully the first of many installments in this new weirdly fantastic series–definitely my most surprising read of the year so far. Henry’s Alice knows that sometimes you have to hurt people before they can hurt you, and she doesn’t hesitate to do exactly that. And even if she did, her mad companion Hatcher, thusly named for the killing frenzy that resulted in at least six deaths-by-ax, would not. They’re on a mission, and if they’re coming for you . . . Run, Rabbit, run.
