From the author of the Fate series and The Deep End of the Sea comes a fantastical romantic adventure that has Alice tumbling down the strangest rabbit hole yet.

After years in Wonderland, Alice has returned to England as an adult, desperate to reclaim sanity and control over her life. An enigmatic gentleman with an intriguing job offer too tempting to resist changes her plans for a calm existence, though. Soon, she’s whisked to New York and initiated into the Collectors’ Society, a secret organization whose members confirm that famous stories are anything but straightforward and that what she knows about the world is only a fraction of the truth.

It’s there she discovers villains are afoot—ones who want to shelve the lives of countless beings. Assigned to work with the mysterious and alluring Finn, Alice and the rest of the Collectors’ Society race against a doomsday clock in order to prevent further destruction . . . but will they make it before all their endings are erased?


Oh. My. God. I really am stuck for words. This book blew me away. Even days later I can't get it out of my head.
This review is gonna be short and sweet because I'm not gonna mention anything about the plot. This is the type of book that I recommend you go in blind. As the story progressed there were so many wonderful surprises that my heart nearly exploded. The characters, oh god they were all amazing. Alice was one of the best female protagonists I have ever come across. She was so kick-ass and feisty and so well written. All the characters were. Such a variety of personalities, I loved them all. And Finn? Swoon! You will fall head over heels for this guy.
I also adored Lyons' writing style. The book was so intelligently written and the words just flowed effortlessly across the page. And the attention to detail! I can't imagine how much research Lyons did for this series. I am in complete awe. One of the most creative and unique books I have ever read. There were a few grammar mistakes but because I got an eARC I am not gonna mark down for that. I will assume the final copy doesn't have them.

Everything about this book was flawless. Pure gold. Not only one of my favourite reads of the year, but of all time. I cannot recommend this one enough! Now bring on book 2!
