She has not yet seen the dark depths of her kingdom; she longs only for her father's approval and a future with the boy she loves. But when a betrayal breaks her heart and threatens her throne, she is launched into Wonderland's dangerous political game. Dinah must stay one step ahead of her cunning enemies or she'll lose not just the crown but her head.Evil is brewing in Wonderland and maybe, most frighteningly, in Dinah herself.The first novel in Colleen Oakes' epic, imaginative series proves heroes can become villains and fairy tales can become nightmares.This is not a story of happily ever after.This is the story of the Queen of Hearts.
