I love this book. My best friends son and i love reading and its a challenge to find a book we bolth like and this was a perfect match. I love how Beddor changed the names ( the mad hatters real name Is Hatter Madigan) the story never laged or got borring. It's a page turner that you wont want to put down. There is some violence, Alyss family is killed in the beginning of the book.
