My Review

I usually do not latch onto quotes but this one was great. “I’d rather be impaled by the truth than live joyfully in a lie.”

Steampunk fiction is an interesting pick for me. The author pulled me in to the Alice in Wonderland world with all the familiar characters. I must have expressed every emotion from surprise, anger, love, hate, laughter, suspense, revenge, and forgiveness. Wow, what a journey!

Did you ever wonder what might have happened to the Queen of Hearts, the Mad Hatter, and the Cheshire Cat? Well, wonder no more. Read this version and confront some madness in Wonderland.

Thanks for the roller coaster ride, Tabitha Bouldin.

More from Tabitha

Madness in Wonderland is a story of found family, good versus evil, rambunctious heroines and strong heroes who are not afraid to leap across airships for their people.

Trust me when I say I’ve tested their loyalty.

I put the Wonder’s crew through so much I started feeling sorry for them. Then I had another airship shoot at them with their cannons. That’s when I knew this story was not only a source of entertainment for me, but it was also challenging me. Madness forced me to become a better writer. Each page demanded my full attention if I wanted to have any hope of catching the true vibes of the story and bringing them to the page.

When I first started writing Madness, I had a rough idea of what I wanted. Evil Queen. Check. Alice as a tough but loving heroine. Check. Frankenstein’s monster. Check. (What’s Wonderland without a little havoc?)

Then the characters took over the story.

Frankenstein’s monster didn’t want to be a monster.

Hatter wanted to be more than a mad side character.

Alice wanted everyone to get along without losing another crew member.

Meeting their demands was a challenge and the story shifted from a whimsical fairy tale to something more. It dove deeper than I planned and showed me that I can do hard things too.
