The feeling of his mouth on mine made me lightheaded in the best of ways. In an effort to stay afloat, my hands gripped on to his vest, pulling him closer. I admit I was more than a little bit disappointed when my movement caused him to pull away.My chest heaved as I tried to regain my breathing. He leaned his forehead against mine, his own breath coming out in pants. At least I wasn’t the only one affected.“What was that for?”A crackling sound broke our little moment up and Chess took a step back. The billowing fog from the forest leaked in under the wardrobe door. All thoughts of Chess’s kiss fled my mind as terror began to overwhelm me. I didn’t want to know what lie behind that door.“You need to go now, Kat.” He ushered me to the mirror before turning back to the door.“Wait!” I tugged on his arm. “What about you?”“Who me?” Chess gave a coy smile that didn’t reach his heated eyes. “I’m just a cat.”“Are you mad? Come with us!” My voice became desperate as the door banged open and then there was silence.The light from the bedroom was gone. Inside the door lay only darkness. It was the kind of darkness you were afraid to look into for fear of someone looking back. I knew I didn’t want that darkness to be looking at me.Chess turned to me once again, brushing his lips against my ear. My eyes were focused so much on the approaching darkness that I almost didn’t hear what he said. I frowned in confusion, but before I could question him he shoved me through the mirror’s surface.When I read the blurb to this book, I knew I wanted to read it. Erin Bedford tale of Chasing Rabbits is a twist of Alice in Wonderful land, but after Alice has been there.
Katherine (Kat) runs after a rabbit eating her carrots and ends up in The Between, which is one of the 3 realms in the Underground within this story. Each realm has rules and all fae must obey the rules, but above all no humans are allowed.
As Kat tries to get out of the Underground, she meets all kinds of unique characters. For example, Cheshire S Cat reminds of a cross between a playboy and Pussy N Boots, but with a little more sex appeal.
A Dark Prince who lost his fiancé after something Alice did and continues to be punished. The interaction between the Prince and Kat is very interesting. I felt the pull between these two while reading this story.
Kat is very determined and wants to get out of there, but the obstacles can be overwhelming in the Underground. I truly enjoyed the adventure and the characters I met along the way.
But, the ending blew me away as I wasn't expecting that. I can't wait to read the next book to see what happens next.
Erin did a fantastic job of writing this tale.
