    I adore fairytales. Not to brag or anything but I own all the Disney and Pixar movies. But there is something I love more than fairytales...darker, perverse retellings. So when I came across this little story, I was beyond delighted. I am a Wonderland junkie. There's something about it that draws me in. Maybe its the dark undertones because when you think about it, it's a pretty fucked up story all in its own. But this little read, takes it to a whole new level.

There's something about it that draws me in. Maybe its the dark undertones because when you think about it, it's a pretty fucked up story all in its own. But this little read, takes it to a whole new level. This is a shorter story starting with Alice being pruned to be the pretty, young, prim and proper girl. To look, don't touch or talk. She is kept in her room at all times except on those special occasions where she is taken downstairs to be fawned over. She, understandably, gets pretty lonely until they start coming to visit at night. They would be creatures of monstrous or odd natures. Some claw at her, some rip and tear at her things, while others just stare at her from afar; all keeping her from sleep and driving her insane. But there is one, who takes the time to sit and have tea with her...the Hatter. His niceties now though become much more sinister in the future. "The Devil will have his due and so will I. It can all end, sweet Alice, if you would just give yourself to me of your own free will. Have you had enough?" Does Alice give the Hatter what he wants? Does the Devil get his due? What happens to poor sweet Alice? What a fucking story! I loved every word of it. Wished it would have been longer but I can't have everything can I? I don't know why there aren't more retellings like this out there. Sure, there are those that are just plain ol' erotica, but I want more than just characters boning each other. Put some dark shit in there. Give me a broody, murderous villain over a toothy prince any day.

    Once upon a time, Addison Cain wrote a short story about Alice in Wonderland that was included in a boxset of adult fairytales. It was a pretty darn dark story. Then, our plucky heroine got the rights to her story back and she was able to put the stuff back in that she had to take out. When this Alice sees the white rabbit, she doesn't want to go and follow him down his rabbit hole for a topsy-turvy tea party.

I thought that the censored version was dark. It has nothing on this one. The uncensored one goes past dark into downright creepifying. I will never see Alice, Chesire Cat, or Mad Hatter in the same way again.

    JE....SUS Excuse me a sec while I take my ass to church, Alice in WonderHELL is more like it. Whoo weee. I would say this was deff more creepy than horror to me personally. But creepier things scare me anyway lol. The entire time I thought the mad hatter WAS the devil. Literally. Again, Addison Cain continues to be one of my favorite authors!

    The White Queen is a retelling of Alice in Wonderland, only it's not a fairytale it's dark, twisted and scary! I felt really bad for Alice throughout this short read and I couldn't believe the crap she went through and that her parents thought she was crazy. This was seriously not for me. It was just really weird and left me with nothing but unanswered questions. I don't get the point in this retelling what so ever!

    If you want horror, this is horror of the finest! Or the worst? Either way, the devious way a young girls life is set up to be consumed by evil is frightfully fascinating.

Add to that a family's reaction and the following "cure" and you have the perfect horror scenario. Even more frightening is the fact that reactions and methods like these were common practice in the not so distant past. Be warned, this is not an easy read, and you won't be able to put it out of your mind for quite some time!

    It's very rare that I find an author that can write multiple genre's well, but leave it to Addison... it doesn't matter what she's writing, it's bound to suck you in and leave you begging for more. I can't say I'm much of a horror genre fan, but hot dang, I gobbled up this story. As with everything else she's written, Addison's world building skills don't disappoint in The White Queen.

    This is a dark and twisted retelling of Alice in Wonderland and not for the faint of heart. There are no happy endings here. But if this is up your alley, you will devour this almost immediately like I did. Another brilliant story written by Addison Cain. I continue to be floored by her creativity, dark imagination, and compelling storytelling/writing style.

    A dark and twisted version of Alice in Wonderland. Is a short and very entertained story. If you like dark stories with no happy ending you would love this. The imagination of Addison Cain doesn’t hace limits, the way she took this child’s story and mede her horror filled is fantastic.

    Dark, twisted and everything I love in a book. This book was everything I would have never expected and had me clinging for more the entire read. Not much to be said in a review that the blurb won't give you. All I can say is that if you like dark and disturbing you have met your match in this book

    Poor Alice. She’s in the vicious hands of beloved literary characters gone wild. The author warns that this is horror instead of her usual dark romance, and she’s right. It’s a tense, subliminally-pervy, sinister take on “Alice in Wonderland.” The pervy stuff is mostly off screen or detached and not explicit. This story reminds me of Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper” but with malevolence and nightmarish violence instead of Victorian feminist angst. Is Alice a reliable narrator?

This story reminds me of Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper” but with malevolence and nightmarish violence instead of Victorian feminist angst. Is Alice a reliable narrator? What she describes could merely be the rantings of the misunderstood Victorian-era mentally ill. Or is her torment real? That might even be worse. This story would make a great scary movie (seriously). You're never sure what's really happening, and The Hatter's patient brutality keeps it all on edge. There were also some hints of Dr. Who as well, such as "Blink" and "The Girl in the Fireplace." I'll never think about stuffed rabbits the same way again

This is a total mind f*ck. I can’t even go back and re-read it...because you know...bunnies and stuff. I waited 24 hours after reading The White Queen to write this review because when I finished the story I wasn’t sure how I felt. But after some thought and the purge of any sinister looking stuffed animals from my house, I actually liked Ms. Cain’s take on Alice. It is very twisted, very, very dark, scary at times, very heartbreaking and a very different take on a classic. As with all Ms. Cain’s books and stories, you need to be warned. This short story is not for the faint of heart. Also, this is the uncensored version of this story, so read with all the lights on and preferably hours before you go to bed.

It was a quick read, but so very captivating, I couldn't put it down - the descriptive writing and telling of the tale really got to me - it will mess with your head and give you the creeps, whilst feeling so very sorry for Alice and her situation. The feeling of dread that something was coming or watching me stayed with me for quite a while after reading this - give this one a go, I dare you!!

    It has been a few hours since I finished this book and what can i say.. It is a Addison Cain book. I kept thinking poor Alice. She is unwanted and unloved all her life. She knows no kindness. It is a dark, disturbing and very sad story.

    Delightfully Horrible Addison Cain can weave such a beautiful nightmare. This is a dark read. A twisted "courtship" and a twisted HEA for the heroine(victim?). I highly recommend if that is your genre and if not, I warn you away. Adison is too good at her craft.

    A dark twist on an already dark story I am so upset with myself that I didn’t discover Addison Cain’s writing earlier. Though I’ve usually been a reader that requires a neatly wrapped ending to the stories I read, Addison’s penchant for dark and complex elements to her stories, as well as leaving some things as answered, has still managed to keep captivated by the characters and plot. Each time I end one of her books, I ask myself, “Why?”. Why is it over and why is it so darn good? The story of Al A dark twist on an already dark story I am so upset with myself that I didn’t discover Addison Cain’s writing earlier. Though I’ve usually been a reader that requires a neatly wrapped ending to the stories I read, Addison’s penchant for dark and complex elements to her stories, as well as leaving some things as answered, has still managed to keep captivated by the characters and plot. Each time I end one of her books, I ask myself, “Why?”. Why is it over and why is it so darn good? The story of Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carrol is one that already scared me a bit as a child. Addison takes the darkness from that story and imbibes it with even more horror. The Red Queen, the Twins, the white rabbit, the Cheshire Cat (as a manic man in this novel), and especially the Mad Hatter all make appearances and all manage to scare the bejesus out of you. Especially that rabbit. Shudder. I also appreciated the fact that this does take place in Victorian England and that Addison incorporated historical elements to the story, such as the idea of female hysteria. All in all, five stars! Off to find another Addison Cain novel!

    Having read the original censored version in The Dark Forest anthology, I knew what I was getting into reading this. This unadulterated version is delightfully terrifying, horrifyingly intriguing, and downright twisted. I enjoyed every second of it! In true Cain fashion, the story is not what it seems from the start and has you following the breadcrumbs through truly dark places, twisty paths, and off sheer cliffs of wonderfully detailed and imaginative horrors.

This is not a happily ever after story. It is not an erotically charged tale of love and sex... or at least not in the conventional sense. This is pure, distilled horror with a splash of terror and a sprinkle of dread. Read at your own risk, and be prepared to be wary of things that lurk in the dark as you settle in for bed at night. 10/10 would recommend.

She seeks only peace, love, affection, and mostly, sleep. Tormented by creatures of the midnight hour, unseen and unheard by any others, she is driven to an incurable madness.

    4.5 stars If you are looking for romance or even A happily ever after move along. This is not a fairytale nor is it the Alice in Wonderland that you read as a child. It's dark, twisted, and horrific. You will want to stop reading but you won't be able to stop because this author is incredibly talented. I'm convinced that she is either a witch or a drug dealer because her words are crack.

    The White Queen is a dark and twisted vision of the traditional Alice in Wonderland. Addison Cain is a woman who knows how to toe the line with darker plots. If you are wanting to test the black waters of darkness then I suggest The White Queen. It's dark enough for those who are new to the genre, and those who enjoy the darkness this is just a delightful taste of Mrs. Cain's work.

    I am a fan of many things, Alice in Wonderland one of them, and twists on stories or alternate history fiction... so this twist on Alice in Wonderland was right up my alley. The fact it was a dark tale without that Happily Ever After expectation made it intriguing. It was a thrilling read that lingered with me far after I was done. I wanted to know more about this world Addison Cain had created, which was both similar to the one we knew and so wildly different.

    Madder than a March hare... What a fun little read. The White Queen takes everything you learned about Alice and her Wonderland adventures and twists it into a macabre retelling. Not for the faint of heart, Addison Cain creates an horrific world where nightmares frolic freely.
