Lost in Wonderland

The Twisted and the Brave Book 1

To be totally honest, this novel took my by complete surprise. It’s intriguing, enchanting, and gave me a whole new view on the mythos of Wonderland. It moves very smoothly, switching from Wonderland to the real world and back again with ease. It also switches between characters effortlessly. I found it to be unexpectedly fabulous! I really felt for both Shilo and Mouse, both caught in a situation that neither really understands. I would recommend this novel to anyone looking for a grand adventure that’s somewhat out of the norm.

There’s a savage monster loose in the wilds of Alaska. The agents of Wonderland are trained to hunt down such creatures. Rabbit, Cheshire, and Mouse hunt monsters. Mouse sets her sights on Alaska, that is, until her brother Shilo appears. Shilo has myriad issues that Mouse (otherwise known as Kayla), isn’t quite sure how to handle. But Mouse does her best to deal with this rather delicate situation. After Rabbit goes hunting in Alaska for this killer, she vanishes. So Mouse and Shilo set out in search of a missing friend, a killer, and a missing past. But can they truly deal with everything they discover?

Book Blurb for Lost in Wonderland

Monsters, serial killers, and imaginary friends—being a Wonderlander can be murder...

Once upon a time, Kayla was lost. Then she found Wonderland, but not the one you know. Run by ex-government agents and funded by an eccentric Silicon Valley billionaire, this Wonderland is the name of a collective of highly trained vigilantes who hunt serial killers. Now Kayla, aka Mouse, works tirelessly alongside her fellow Wonderlanders, Rabbit and Cheshire, baiting dangerous murderers. But even her extensive training hasn’t prepared her for the return of her older brother…

Shilo has spent most of his life in an insane asylum, convinced his mother was abducted by a sinister Alaskan monster who lures the lost away to feast upon their flesh. And now he’s certain that his sister is in the same monster’s crosshairs. But if Shilo is going to save what’s left of his family, he’ll have to convince his sister that maybe, just maybe, we’re all a little mad.
