Summary

Welcome to Wonderland Academy. Don't lose your head. Getting into Wonderland Academy is easy: You must be a little mad. You must follow the white rabbit. You must find the key to enter Wonderland. You must not be named Alice or risk being beheaded by order of the Queen of Hearts. We might have an issue with that last one. My name may be Alice, but Wonderland Academy is everything my real life isn't. Who wouldn't want to learn how to ride a jabberwocky, train with a vorpal sword, cast spells using a teacup, or shapeshift into a fairy? As long as no one figures out my real name, I should be fine. The only problem? Aden, the Queen of Hearts' son, is quickly becoming my best friend. And then there's Corbin. Brooding, surly, tattooed, and definitely not my type, I can't stop thinking about him. But Corbin has secrets of his own, and Wonderland and secrets don't mix. How I'm going to pass my classes and protect my secret like my life depends on it is beyond me. But I better find a way. Because in Wonderland, no Alice is safe. Wonderland Academy re-imagines the fantastical world of Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland" for a fresh, new adventure. Combining whimsy, magic, and a splash of steampunk, New York Times best-selling author Melanie Karsak invites you into this beautifully re-envisioned fairy tale adventure.

Summary

Harm none, and be ready for zombies. In the little town of Brighton, Amelia's practice of Wicca has always marked her as odd. But Amelia can't change what she is.

Only Madame Knightly, the ancient matriarch and owner of Witch Wood Estate to whom Amelia plays caretaker, doesn't seem to mind her conjoining. In fact, the crumbling old mansion is full oddities. When modern treatments fail to make a dent in the flu outbreak sweeping the globe, those who once ridiculed her white witchcraft turn to Amelia for help. While her eucalyptus tinctures prove no more effective than Western medicine, her spell-casting is another matter. The residents of Brighton soon depend on the very magic they once ridiculed to save their lives.

Too bad the property owner is the sweetest woman I've ever met.
