    *Starred Review* McKinney's follow-up to A Blade So Black (2018) proves she is a master of urban fantasy. The dust hasn't settled from Alice's last battle, and she already must journey back into Wonderland to permanently defeat the Black Knight and save her friends. But in this installment, her friends aren't the ones who ultimately need saving; it's Alice herself who's in the gravest danger. A mysterious evil, the Poet, has been manipulating events and using Nightmares to raise the dead—and this dangerous figure seeks to possess Alice's newfound powers. To defeat this new menace and save the day, Alice must look deep within herself to face the worst of her nature—and the flaws of those she loves—because the only way to conquer darkness and fear is to face it straight on. McKinney gives readers the pleasure of revisiting beloved characters from A Blade So Black as well as of getting to know entirely new and fascinating ones. The imaginative, lush qualities of Wonderland are further developed, and McKinney provides readers with a sweeping, staggering fantasy world brimming with magic and wonder. The twists and turns of this novel are explosive from start to finish and guaranteed to send readers gleefully down a rabbit hole from which they'll emerge begging for a third installment.
