The most dangerous being in Wonderland wants Alice, but he won't tell her why
It's not because she's daughter of the police chief - Rumpelstiltskin has his own dark magic he uses to his advantage, especially when the desperate want to make deals with him.
It's not because she has her own magic - in fact, Alice is the only human in a world of magic, which means she doesn't have a magical bone in her body.
And it's not because she's special - in fact, she has no idea who she is other than the fact that she was adopted by Paul Winter when she was a baby.
She has nothing to offer the Imp - and yet, he makes her an offer: help him uncover the truth behind her best friend's murder and he'll help her unlock who she really is.
Alice has no idea how she is supposed to help him and he's not saying anything either. But she can't refuse him, even if she wants to. The truth is too important to her - even if it means forcing herself to trust someone as mischievous and as selfish as Rumpelstiltskin himself.
With the grittiness and mystery of Veronica Mars and the magic and romance of Once Upon A Time, The Seeker's Shadow is a captivating urban fantasy mystery readers are sure to be enchanted by!
From the first page to the last this book was riveting. Rumple hires Alice to find a picture. While locating the picture she is also requested by Ella to find out who raped her. Trying to figure out the two mysteries get Alice into trouble. In the end she gets the answers and learns more about herself. A wonderful read that I would recommend.

The Seeker’s Shadow
Hi. I love the story, which was like good mystery keeping me reading a whole day! I didn’t care for names, because they distracted me. Every time I was trying to think about kids bedtime stories they came from...But I can’t wait for the next one ! Good job
This book has the bones of a really great story to it
This book has the bones of a really great story to it. I love the tongue-in-cheek, tipped-on-its-head, funhouse mirror kind of look this takes at Alice in Wonderland and fairy tales in general. There are just some inconsistencies that left me scratching my head. I’m hoping that the threads that were left unfinished at the end of this book will be carried forward as the series progresses. Because, there are several of them, and they ask questions I’d like to know the answers to. Things like: who are Alice’s real parents and why does that make her so special? Who really killed Anna and why is it so important to Rumple? And what the heck really is the deal behind the missing cat?
