THE COLLECTORS’ SOCIETY Synopsis:

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?

Review:

Final_eCover_450x675

First, I want to tell you that I love the story of Alice in Wonderland and this entire story is absolutely awesome. She is original and even if I have received this book in exchange for an honest review on my kindle, the first thing I have done after finished it, was bought it in paperback.

So now let’s talk about this book. Alice is in an asylum because she wants it, she doesn’t think she’s ready for the real world, her mind is too close to madness.  One day, a man come and offers her a job, Alice is a curious girl and she follows the man in New York. The man is the head of the Collectors’ Society, they must find catalyst and protect them. But what are the catalysts?

When a book is published and embraced by a large population, a timeline is created and all timeline have a catalyst. If you destroy the catalyst, the timeline is destroyed and all the people who lived there too.

All the timeline are in danger because somebody wants them destroyed and the Collectors’ Society must stop these people.

Alice is a strong, independent woman, she doesn’t give her trust easily and her past in wonderland has left her sad and alone.

The head of the society is Abraham Van Brunt who is also from a book.

The boy of the book is Huckleberry Finn and he’s Alice partner. You won’t be surprise if I’m telling you that I love this guy. He is handsome, protective, smart, he can fight and wants to find the person who wish to destroyed the timeline.

There is also some other character, Victor, Mary, Wendy and Todd. I let you read the book and find the story they come from.

The character can travel between the timeline in editing, they wrote with a pen the where and when In a book and after a door appears and they can go.

Alice must find Wonderland’s catalyst and it in safe place.

The story is absolutely awesome and original, I like the fact that some people come from books and are main characters. And I like the fact that many books are in this one.

The imagination of Heather Lyons is great, it’s awesome to find a lot of book’s character in other books. The story is well written and the characters have a lot of qualities. I really can’t wait to read the second book and to see where Heather want to lead us. I like her style and I will read her other books.

If you like Alice in Wonderland and books and love and fantasy, you must read this book because you will love it. And look at this cover, she’s gorgeous.

 

“Within the readers category, we can further label people by how passionate they are with books they choose. Some people escape into the stories they read. Some read for purpose or information. Some read out of resentment or necessity. But let us, in this moment, focus on those who find books to be an escape or an extension of their imagination. These readers see, within their mind’s eye, the characters and settings in the pages below their fingers. They feel the emotions woven between the words. They live through every heartache, every embrace, every terror. Books, to these people, become tangible, living things. The characters they read become genuine souls.”
