R is for Realms of the Red Rabbit by Laura Eno

“At last the time has come.” The voice spoke like a clap of thunder, menace choking off the breeze that had sprung up.

“Seven hundred years I have waited for the Red Rabbit to appear once again. There will be much sorrow here soon…and pain. That is what makes the waiting worthwhile.” With that proclamation the pair of enormous emerald green eyes faded back into the darkness.

A spoiled, rich young woman is catapulted into an alternate universe because of an ancient legend. As she fights to find her way back home, she must adjust her way of thinking or remain trapped in the Realms for eternity. Along the way she learns the meaning of friendship, love and honor while struggling against the dangerous adversaries who are intent on keeping her there.

My Review:

Realms seems to be a combination of Alice in Wonderland and Dante's Inferno. The Alyson in this story is sent on a journey through different "hells" created specifically for different sins.

I enjoyed reading it. The biggest draw was purely coincidence. I've been in love with anthologies lately and even though it was the same characters and story throughout, the jump to each realm almost felt like each one was a new story. Since each realm was a new world to explore. I loved all the effort the author put into the world building. The different people and places. The author really did an amazing job of the main characters development and growth from a shallow rich kid to person who cared about more than just herself.  

The ending was definitely a cliff hanger. Plus there were questions left unanswered. I want to read the next book in the series to find out about different characters and to see where the author decides to go with Alyson's story. 

Realms is currently only .99 cents for Kindle. Definitely a steal at that price and I recommend picking up a copy if you have a chance. 


  1. Does sound like an interesting book. It is good that you know there is another book in the series since this one was left with unanswered questions and a cliffhanger.


  2. It sounds intriguing! Different hells for different levels of sins is a staple in my culture. Here from the A-Z. Best wishes for the rest of the challenge,
