Alice: The Wanderland Chronicles by J. M. Sullivan
Ever since the outbreak of the Plague life hasn’t been easy, and for seventeen-year-old Alice Carroll it just got worse. Her sister, Dinah, has contracted the ‘un-deadly’ Momerath Virus and without a cure will soon be worse than dead. She’ll be momerath.
Alice must leave the safety of the Sector and venture into Momerath Territory to find the antidote – if it exists. Chasing a rumour about a mysterious doctor with the cure, Alice falls down the rabbit hole into Wanderland, where ravenous momerath aren’t the only danger lurking.
Mix your favourite children’s story with zombies and what do you get? A rip-roaring adventure from start to finish! This story of Alice is a bit darker than the original but it makes for fantastic reading.
Alice is a young girl living in the Sector with her sister who contracts the momerath virus. Alice is devastated and it’s now her turn to protect her family. She goes off on a hunt through the mostly abandoned city of Pheonix (Wanderland) in search of a cure. Alice discovers her strength and her ability as a kick-ass fighter along the way. You fall in love with her and root for her. She battles the momerath and stands up to the Queen, not to mention overcoming dangerous situations with her quick-thinking and intelligence.
She meets many characters that resemble their counterparts enough to be recognised but bring a new and interesting element to the story. Dr. Whaite R. Abbott, Hatta, Bug, Nate, are all well-fleshed out characters who add to the depth to the tale. But my favourite character has to be Chess. I think I’m a little bit in love with Chess. They meet by chance and Alice doesn’t know what to think when he leaves her in an abandoned, but well reinforced, van for the night. Things get even more confusing for Alice where Chess is concerned but… I don’t want to give anything away! Go and read it…
Alice: The Wanderland Chronicles is a helluva ride and you won’t want to put it down.
