 I can't tell if this is supposed to be based on Alice in Wonderland or something else entirely. I found it to be a convoluted story with very little background information. I'm not particularly inclined to finish the series.

Red Queen 383 pages
 by Victoria Aveyard
 I really don't know what to say about this book. I liked the story, but there are so many characters that didn't have enough background. She wants you to feel for them but they are no more than mannequins without thoughts and feelings of their own, just pose-able space holders to keep the dialogue going.
