Book Review – Her Mad Hatter (Kingdom #1) by Marie Hall

Posted on

I’m going to keep this one short and sweet like the book. After reading the synopsis on Goodreads I was super curious about this book. I went onto Amazon and it was free so I thought – why not! I one-clicked this book and pretty much didn’t put it down until it was done. I burned through it in an afternoon and absolutely adored it.

Alice is all grown up. Running the Mad Hatter’s Cupcakery and Tea Shoppe is a delicious job, until fate–and a fairy godmother with a weakness for bad boys–throws her a curveball. Now, Alice is the newest resident of Wonderland, where the Mad Hatter fuels her fantasies and thrills her body with his dark touch.

The Mad Hatter may have a voice and a body made for sex, but he takes no lovers. Ever. But a determined fairy godmother has forced Alice into Wonderland–and his arms. Now, as desire and madness converge, the Hatter must decide if he will fight the fairy godmother’s mating–or fight for Alice.

The descriptions of Alice’s time spent in Wonderland were absolutely mesmerizing. I wanted more, more, MORE! The Mad Hatter was crazy perfection. I have never thought of the Mad Hatter in a “hot” way before I read this book (no, not even after seeing him played by Johnny Depp) but this was a Mad Hatter I could totally get behind. I adored everything about him! Especially his beautiful and crazy mind.

The world building and the story telling were just so GOOD. The way it was written….I can’t go into too much detail because I don’t want to blurt it all out and ruin it for anyone thinking about reading it, but I just could NOT put it down.

The only teeny tiny gripe I have was that I would have liked to see and bit more depth and emotion. Just a little bit more background story on both Alice and Hatter would have made this even more perfect. Also I found the ending quite abrupt. It was still completely amazing though!

 Also worth noting – the book isn’t as smut filled as the cover makes it look. Any lover of fantasy will adore this book. Getting lost in Wonderland was the perfect way to spend a Friday arvo.
