A Dream so Dark by L. L. McKinney - HIGH

A Dream so Dark (Nightmare-Verse #2) by L. L. McKinney, 402 pages. Imprint (Macmillan), 2019.  $19

Language: R (100+ swears, 7 ‘f’); Mature Content: G; Violence: R (bloody fights)



Alice, 17yo, might be grounded, but when Wonderland calls, she can’t refuse. She and her friends must track down the new evil which is pretending to be the Black Knight and is controlled by an unknown entity. Worse, she thought someone close to her was dead, but what if they are being controlled by that same entity. Wonderland is a mess, and Alice will need all the help she can get to control the damage.

Alice is back with a vengeance!  Her take-no-prisoners style is exciting for any reader.  While the Alice in Wonderland framing is great, it is just an interesting fillip to an excellent series that stands on its own feet.
