White Rabbit |#Wattys2017|
Alice was never supposed to die.
They always joked of course, about finding her murdered, bloodied, broken, and dead. Dressed in blue and missing her head, the notorious crime boss brought to her knees; dealt like a deck of cards. It was a romanticised picture, a harmless daydream, an unreachable fantasy, but when the filthy pawns of Wonderland discovered her body a hush overtook the city.
A dirty silence that seeped through the floorboards before the chaos was set free.
With the apparent queen dead who would rule the savage underworld? As riots, raids and madness broke out across the shattered city the once proud order the criminals lived by became nothing but a dizzying illusion, drowned out by the smoky haze of a hookah pipe.
Alina was never supposed to be found. Until the day a messenger knocked on her door and told her of a death in the family. A family she never knew existed. With an intrigue for murder and lies, the sole heiress to the fractured throne of Wonderland surfaced, eager to unravel the riddle of the mysterious death. Alina never asked for power, Alina was never supposed to be found, and yet with madness all around her what else was she supposed to do but to fall down the rabbit hole, with no sign of escape.
Welcome to Wonderland, home of murder, money, family and lies.
Are you ready for the madness?
this is a dark retelling of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, it'll be cruel, insane and ever so wicked. So be warned, madness is a disease, stay too long and you may find yourself without a cure.
cover credits go to me, I do not own any of the images or music inside, nor do I own the characters created by Lewis Carroll, this is simply a story inspired by his.
