Evermore by Joshua Gamon is worth reading. It is one of those books you can't put down. It is about a curious book that is a portal into another world. The protagonist, Doctor Fellowes, receives it from a terminally ill patient. Later we learn that the patient was once a king who lived inside the book. The patient subsequently dies in a gruesome way. Unaware of the book's magic, Fellowes gives it to his daughter who travels through the portal unwittingly. To get his daughter back, Fellowes enters the world of the book, where he meets a thrifty but deceptive rabbit. They encounter wild beasts and the evil queen herself. Not all is what it seems. Will the doctor save his daughter in time from what is in store for her?
The plot parallels the story of Alice in Wonderland. We encounter the confused, flustered rabbit, an evil queen, a deck of card soldiers, and the Jabberwocky. There are also some fantastic additions. In terms of the plot, however, Evermore is far from the light-hearted Alice in Wonderland many have come to know. The Evermore plot is more perplexing, being more twisted and darker in mood. Therefore, Evermore will suit a more mature audience. The dialogue is well-placed and easy to follow, well-written, entertaining, and believable. Despite the dark theme, Evermore by Joshua Gamon contains mesmerizingly attractive black and white etchings. There are many captivating graphic images. The portrayal of the emotional scars of the antagonist, the evil queen, was astonishing.
