Teaser Tuesday: The Looking Glass Wars


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share a few “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


I read this one for book group, but honestly, it's totally something I would have read on my own. The book by Lewis Caroll Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was inspired by an orphaned girl with a big imagination. But what if she was telling the truth?  The Looking Glass Wars is the real story of Alyss Heart, princess of Wonderland, a place where caterpillars are enigmatic oracles, people travel through mirrors, and imagination has power.

Here's the Teaser:
Redd kicked The Cat where he lay on the floor, tongue lolling in his mouth, the picture of death. "Get up! You still have seven more lives." 
The Cat's eyes fluttered open. 
"Find Alyss and kill her."
- pg 67, The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor

For some reason, I've never been a big 'Alice in Wonderland' fan. I love fairy tales and retellings, and this might just be different enough for me to really like.
