ArchEnemy (Looking Glass Wars Series #3)

ArchEnemy - Frank Beddor In this third and final installment of The Looking Glass Wars trilogy, Beddor takes no prisoners as he closes this beautifully crafted retelling of the Alice in Wonderland tale. The plot was well done and well paced. I felt like every plot aspect took its time to be resolved and was not rushed. I still love all of the characters, but find myself loving Redd a lot more than I had ever anticipated. While the reader discovered much of her true personality and history in Seeing Redd, I felt like ArchEnemy gave me a chance to see a different side of her. Yes, she is still evil and wants Wonderland for herself. But I was surprised to see how vulnerable she was in regards to King Arch, and how much I sympathized with her experiences.All in all, the ends are nicely tied up with reasonable explanations given for certain character's actions. While this novel was a bit different than the previous two, it still maintained the charm and magic that made me fall in love with this series in the first place.
