Chainsaw Alice in Wonderland
by Khurt Khave
CreateSpace, $11.62, 196pp
Published: October 2014

'This novel is touted as the sickest steampunk horror book ever written. I'm not sure if I'd agree with that statement, but the author goes a long way to try to back it up with a heaping helping of cum and gore. There are things in this book that I've not run across in another book to date, I'm just not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing for some of it.

This is not the Alice you grew up with, but she's an interesting character to say the least. She is a chrononaut who falls down an unmarked dimensional time rift which transports her to Wonderland. Aside from several twisted versions of the traditional characters, the author introduces us to many new characters. Some of them help flesh out the story nicely, such as the Dirty Weasel who becomes Alice's traveling companion; the author infused a lot of his own personality and odd humor into creating this character who plays off Alice's straightforward personality well.

Most of the various kingdoms are at war and there is a big corporate takeover in the works. There are odd Gods with their own agendas, as well as characters to save. Throughout all this, there is plenty of hand to hand combat. Yes, some includes Alice and her trusty chainsaw! Fire fights and magic battles that even introduce a cum elemental are some of the things to look forward to.

There is also sex to be had but not as much as I was expecting to find, not that it's a bad thing either way. Be careful, though, if the Mad Hatter offers you a drink; it may not be your cup of tea.

I was surprised and impressed with some of the wordsmithing in this book; the author did a nice job of turning a phrase in a few areas.

Overall I found it a fun but bumpy romp through Wonderland, one I'd happily revisit if future stories of Alice deem to make an appearance. Try the insanity, it's delicious! ~~ Dee Astell
