Goodreads synopsis:

Wonderland finally seems as if it’'s getting back to normal. Queen Alyss is back on the throne, and reunited with her childhood sweetheart, Dodge. But the fight for Wonderland is far from over. King Arch, in nearby Boarderland, is conniving to overthrow everything for which Alyss and her friends have fought so hard. Even worse, King Arch has found an ally in the recently returned Redd, who has been biding her time and gathering new and evil assassins in the Catacombs of Paris. With enemies circling and danger looming, someone close to Alyss lets her down —and threatens the future of Wonderland forever.


Hey guys!

     Seeing Redd is the sequel to The Looking Glass Wars, and to be honest I didn't like this book as much as I liked TLGW. 

My Little Random Thoughts:
  • This book follows about 3 months after the proceedings in at the end of TLGW, and it focuses mainly on Redd and King Arch's schemes.
  • I didn't enjoy the book as much as I did the first.
  • I feel like the problems from TLGW weren't fixed, they just got worse. 
  • I really like Frank Beddor's writing, and I love the world that he has created. 
  • I just wish that he would actually describe the bizarre creatures that he created. 
  • I also wish that I had gotten more information about Alyss, and more development in Alyss's and Dodge's relationship. 
  • Overall, I felt like there were some holes in the plot. I really wish that the books were more in depth and descriptive. I feel like that would add some great things to the story.
I gave this book an overall rating of 4 stars; and I plan on reading the third book in the trilogy, but I hope it gets better. 

I hope you enjoyed this little review. I actually talk about this book in my January Wrap Up on my YouTube channel!

Happy reading everyone!
