    1. This book is for all the girls who were told that their anger was unattractive, unladylike and hysterical. For the villains and the heroes and for those of us who will always be a bit of both. For the hearts that bleed and those who would make them bleed.This is the end of the story of the Queen of Hearts.

    2. "I am your queen and you will listen to my command."Dinah, the exiled princess of Wonderland, is marching to war with her army of Spades and Yurkei warriors. En route to Wonderland Palace, she has to deal with and settle the tensions in camp, while also trying to ignore the dark fury inside of her - and her broken heart. All of this is observed by her real father, Cheshire, who seems all too pleased with her dark mood. And as the war begins, secret upon secret is unravelled, turning Dinah's life [...]

    3. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I'll start this review by saying I didn't read the two previous novels in the trilogy, and as such I do think I missed a lot of the character development and any emotional attachment readers who read the previous instalments will have for these characters. Dinah is returning home to claim the throne that is rightfully hers. The Queen of Hearts, with a shattered heart herself, she's prepared to stop at nothing to get to what is righ [...]

    5. Many characters fought and died but she did it. Dinah did it and I'm so happy! I loved Cheshire so much for everything! He truly was a genius through the end and I loved her kids. They were adorable! I loved this series so much; I'm happy I read it!

    6. I thought this was a satisfying conclusion to this trilogy. I loved how Colleen weaves her own story but included bits from Lewis’s Alice in Wonderland. I never get tired of Alice retelling’s and this is probably one of my favorites.

    7. woah this was dark y’allobably the bloodiest out of all three books, and mama liked it. Dinah was savage. that girl went through hell, and came out victorious. she wasn’t perfect, and had a hell of a lot of anger issues. can’t really blame her though, with parents like hers. but what she did to Wardley was straight up cruel, but hey she got the guy, and that’s all that really matters, right? 😉

    8. Okay this book is my favorite in the series by far. I had my suspicions about the ending and although I'd start to push them aside ultimately I had foreseen what would happen. All in all this book was great. The ending where they tied together the well-loved version of Alice in Wonderland that we all know was really awesome. And it made me see the Red Queen in a completely different way.

    9. I absolutely adore this series. I also love how the author reconciled how Lewis Carrol wrote a novelization of the event. Series well done!!!

    14. "May your broken hearts beat strong. #feelsThe BEST out of the series. It was empowering and the way Lewis was included? Amazing! I find this conclusion very interesting. In terms of which turn of event and direction will the author takes us? And it delievered.I always thought of abandoning the series. Glad I didn't.

    15. It's a strange case, this book. I really don't know why I gave the first Queen of Hearts book five stars anymore - I mean, I liked the book, I thought it was fun, but five stars' worth of fun? More like four, maybe. Certainly not as down in quality as the sophomore slump that was Blood of Wonderland. And now, here we get the trilogy's conclusion in War of the Cards, which, like its predecessor, actually lacks a little in what its title promisesbut overall doesn't lose the fast-moving, addictive [...]

    16. The strongest of the series, which is always good for a finale! I didn’t love it (this book or the series overall) but they were fast-paced, intriguing Wonderland retellings. Not sure how I’d recommend this series because the first two books basically had nothing happen, but ended with interesting cliffhangers. I was happy with the end of the book and the direction she took the story.

    17. Oh my god!!! This was so good. Love love love how Colleen ended the series!!! Will definitely re-read this series one day.

    19. I did not expect to like this book as much as I did, especially since I felt fairly lukewarm towards the first too. But surprisingly I loved it! I couldn’t put it down, the pages just kept turning and turning. There was a twist that I saw coming, but then there were others that surprised me. And then the ending I was NOT expecting, which was surprisingly pleasant. I was truly expecting this story to go one way and it did not but in a great way. I grew to love Dinah who has changed so much from [...]

    20. Everyone is marching to fight in the war for Dinah to take back the crown as the Queen of Hearts. With the Spades and the Yurkei warriors fighting for Dinah, they march towards Wonderland. But Dinah is fighting with this fury that is building up inside of her and if she doesn't control it a lot of people will be hurt. As we begin to question whether or not she will make a good Queen, mistakes are made that can not be undone.This was a great finale in this Queen of Hearts retelling trilogy. There [...]

    21. This is more 3.5 stars for me. I did forget some things from the previous books (one reason I like to read all the books at once) and had to look up a synopsis, but after that I was good. This book starts right in the action as Dinah goes to overthrow the King of Hearts. Things I liked: Dinah's character arc from the beginning of the series, the writing is easy to read (and the books have large margins), the Yurkei tribe, and the resurgence of a character from Dinah's childhood. Things that didn [...]

    23. 4.75Okay.Where do I even begin. SpoilersI cannot deal with this book. I LOVE this series but THIS BOOK DESTROYED MY ENTIRE SOUL. This series is so underrated and just so amazing.The reason it is 4.75 is just because of what happens between Dinah, Vittoire and Wardley. I saw the romance coming I knew that was going to happen in book two but WHAT I DID NOT SEE COMING was the beheading. That destroyed me and I can’t get over it. I haven’t stopped thinking about it since I read which is why I ga [...]

    24. I waited three and a half years for this book and I went ahead and bought it because it was impossible to get a free ebook. With that said, for most of the book I wanted to give it one star. It's very predictable. You can tell from the second book the two main plot twist- Cheshire is behind everything & wardley can't love Dinah because he looks vittorie who they turn into Alice at the last minute which is like MEH. Along with giving a little head nod to Lewis's original book by claiming ward [...]

    25. 2 stars BECAUSE IT IS FINALLY OVER. I NO LONGER HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THE DRIVEL OAKES SPEWS!! I have to shout because it really was not a good trilogy. Some of the ideas were cool, some of the events were interesting, but there are so many flaws, and so many times I wanted to barf in frustration with the yuk of this series!! YAY! NO MORE!

    26. This book made me human. We all have the "black fury" inside us so don't go roaming around hating on the Queen of hearts. It also taught me that you can't have it all unlike the promise of a fairytale.
