9780991272945: The Looking Glass Wars: CrossFire

How does Alyss Heart of Wonderland fare after the creation of Everqueen, as described in Arch Enemy, the third volume of the best-selling Looking Glass Wars trilogy? With difficulty. Fending off political assaults from rival suit families, struggling to maintain diplomatic relations with the tribes of Boarderland, Alyss is more vulnerable than ever before. After she barely escapes an attempt on her life, no longer sure whom to trust, she aligns with controversial new allies in order to keep Wondertropolis safe and prevent havoc on Earth. And yet the fight, the battle, finds her—as it seemingly always does—and Alyss discovers that all decisions, even the right ones, have consequences.

Review:

Frank Beddor

The Looking Glass Wars

New York Times Best-Seller for 26 weeks

2007 Ben Franklin Award for Best YA audiobook

"The Looking Glass Wars, the series of bestselling novels by Frank Beddor that takes the classic 19th century children's tale off into a truly unexpected literary territory - the battlefields of epic fantasy." The LA Times

"Fantastic battle scenes, plot twists, character interest and slow-burning love make this an ace read for both sexes." – Guardian

"This ingenious reworking...is powerful, eventful and dark. Which is entirely legitimate, given the surreality of the original" – Times of London

"I think the remarkable thing about the book is it's very vibrant, it's imaginative, it's visual, it's very well researched. What Frank has done is he's interwoven the history...of Alice and then told his own extraordinary, and believably visual and fast-moving tale." – Michael Morpurgo, Children's Laureate

“A triumph of imagination.” – School Library Journal

“An entertaining cross between Maguire’s Wicked and Steven Spielberg’s Peter Pan Movie, Hook, The Looking Glass Wars grabs the imagination and refuses to let go.” – Teenreads.com

“Beddor makes ample use of Carroll-esque humor and wit.” – Publishers Weekly

Seeing Redd
Seeing Redd – 2008 AudioFile Earphones Award Winner for best voice in YA

"Beddor gives familiar characters new life and introduces interesting new ones ...this comes to a satisfying cliffhanger that leaves the reader looking for more.” – Kirkus Reviews

“The writing is gripping, the characters are spellbinding...Seeing Redd [is] even better than The Looking Glass Wars (which was fantastic in its own right).” – momswhothink.com

ArchEnemy
"This excellent and satisfying end to the trilogy is a must-have for fans of the other volumes as well as for those who enjoy Christopher Paolini's Inheritance Cycle." – School Library Journal

Hatter M: Far from Wonder
2007 Eisner Nominee, Winner Silver IPPY Award

“Ben Templesmith provides a kinetic, almost chaotic energy that makes each panel seem fit to explode...must read.” IGN

"Hatter is tall, steapping, a bit trigger-happy and well-deserving of his own comicbook spinoff." The Washington Examiner

Hatter M: Mad with Wonder – “Whether you’re intimately familiar with the realm, or have not yet found the joys of Wonderland, HATTER M: MAD WITH WONDER is a unique take on a classic and is definitely worth checking out” Fangoria

Gold IPPY Award for best graphic novel, Drama

Hatter M: Nature of Wonder – “Madigan springs forth from the wandering-gunslinger mold with great appeal” – Booklist

Gold IPPY Award for best graphic novel, Drama

Hatter M: Zen of Wonder

Bronze IPPY Award for best graphic novel, Drama

Hatter M: Love of Wonder
“Beddor’s Looking Glass Wars novels trilogy and Hatter M comic series piece together an epic adventure approaching the works of Tolkien” – Night-Flight Comics
