Reviewed by Jenna: A Truly Satisfying Sweet–“Through the Rabbit Hole” by Lisa Kumar

Have you ever awakened from a dream, not sure what was real and what was not?  But what if you couldn’t wake up—if the dream was reality?  I believe you’d immediately think of Alice in Wonderland.

Though she doesn’t have to contend with white rabbits or murderous queens, Natalie Danvers has her own share of mind-blowing problems when she falls Through the Rabbit Hole into a mystical land and onto the lap of a mythical creature, the fey lord Lorh.  This very sweet romance from Lisa Kumar is a joy to read as we experience Natalie’s confusion about her surroundings, her frustration when no one will tell her anything, and her inexplicable and disturbing attraction to Lorh. 

A single piece of information that the handsome, compelling fey lord will divulge is that Natalie has three weeks to decide whether or not she will return to the human world.  And although Natalie is certain in the beginning that she does not belong there, the land of TirAnn holds charm and peace for her, making her decision to return home a struggle she didn’t expect.  By the time the mystery begins to unravel, the reader is so immersed in this world that they can only hope Natalie is led by her heart to make the right decision.

The characters of Natalie and Lorh are excellently drawn.  Their bittersweet relationship grows despite misgivings and impatience—neither is willing to give in easily, so they experience all the frustration of getting to know each other while constantly being on guard.  Though the secrets of the fey land threaten to keep them apart, both find the strength to move slowly from the darkness of despair into the light of realization.

As far as sweet romance is concerned, Through The Rabbit Hole is as satisfying as they come.  Natalie and Lorh’s story unfolds at a pace designed to coax the reader along, just as Lorh coaxes Natalie towards her ultimate decision. The book’s final revelation dazzles, bringing the reader to the realization they have been launched into a world from which they do not wish to return.

Through The Rabbit Hole is available at Astraea Press, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble.  You can find out more about Lisa Kumar’s works by visiting her website, Escape into Fantasy or blog site.
