imaginative post apocalyptic tale. the walking dead on acid😋
my main critique is a lot of the story was text that could have been other words there could have been a little more nuanced. but I believe in forward author stated this was self published for Amazon so he has my admiration and I will refrain from nitpicking more.

I like how creative the trilogy named “Alice in Deadland”, “Through The Killing Glass”, and “Off With Their Heads”. Overall the trilogy was great. It has a different perspective on the zombies. This is the first time I read about a book written by this author. However, I think I will like to read more often from him. I liked the first book. It was the best in the trilogy. The thrill I found between the pages was great. It will push to turn pages more and more to know what will happen next. And I ...more

Alice in Deadland Trilogy Review

The Walking Dead meets Alice in Wonderland.


Civilization as we know it ended more than fifteen years ago, leaving as its legacy barren wastelands called the Deadland and a new terror for the humans who survived hordes of undead Biters.

Fifteen year old Alice has spent her entire life in the Deadland, her education consisting of how best to use guns and knives in the ongoing war for survival against the Biters. One day, Alice spots a Biter disappearing in

I took ages to read this book due to being Ill so it probably looks like I struggled with it but I really liked it. I love anything Alice in Wonderland and the new takes on it are always good. Funny enough though I actually preferred the last story Off With Their Heads which is the prequel to Alice in Deadland and she isn't even in it. I liked reading about the lead up to the zombie outbreak. I feel like this book hasn't made the popularity it deserves as it's a really good read and action packe ...more

Quick read for 3 books. Never was really into all the zombie stuff, but I was very entertained by it. The second book was my favorite of the 3 and I do look forward to reading all the other books connected to these

Since this trilogy, I understand that there are additional Alice books. This series is wonderful--such an original idea! I love the setting in India, where you get a real feel for the pre-zombie density to the Badlands that Alice lives in. The best part is that the villains are real people.
Not only is the concept unique--apocalypse in India, where people are trying to form their own governments and figure out how to work together, and are dealing with an international army

This was really cool. Obviously it has some grammar errors due translation but overall was good. The story started a bit slow in the first book. The second book took over the trilogy. The prequel was necessary to understand the background of the main characters. I will look forward to read the "side quests" books and more from this author. ...more

When Alice in Wonderland meets Zombies you get the 'Alice in Deadland'. This story features Biters who are basically zombies. Even in a post-apocalyptic world, Alice jumps into a rabbit hole, Bunny Ears is the white rabbit but turned into a Biter, disappears down a hole in the ground which Alice tumbles down in an effort to follow him.

This book started out so well. The idea was interesting, Alice was a plucky and enjoyable character... Sadly as I got further in the book my interest died off. Its been two weeks since I've started and after a few more attempts I've decided to throw in the towel. Maybe its not entirely fair to rate the book since I failed to complete it but I also have it shelved as "Did not finish." I think it's time to walk away from a book when the mere act of finishing it feels like work. For me it got far ...more

The title is awesome. Unfortunately, that pretty much covers my favorable comments. The level of depth in characterization is cartoon-grade. Scene descriptions are non-existent. Also, the writer beats you over the head with the evils of tyranny, rather than allowing you to figure out that obvious item on your own. There were also a number of errors in the Kindle version that appeared to increase in frequency as the book(s) progressed.

Alice in Deadland is a Triology by Mainak Dhar.
It won't be wrong to say this is one of the best books I have read in this quarantine.

This book will simply lead you to see how human greed and thirst for power can lead the world to a disastrous ending.

Everything starts when Alice jumps into the hole after the bunny biter. Sounds familiar, isn't it?Alice in wonderland, one of the most famous fantasy novel but trust me this is not fantasy, it is far from it.

"Alice In Deadland" title at first reminds "Alice In Wonderland" which was a fairy tale but this one is definitely not.

This trilogy written by Mainak Dhar follows a dark and extremely threatening storyline which is greepy enough to hold the author from cover to cover.

“Alice in Deadland”, “Through The Killing Glass”, and “Off With Their Heads”. Three phases of one story.

The first phase starts with Alice, A 15 years old female protagonist from India. While her country was on verge to destroy becau

Alice in the Deadland is a trilogy of three bestseller books. The books are essentially zombie thrillers.
The book shows Alice, who is born three months after shit hit the fan, as girl who knows her way around the Deadland. Since she is born after the world was taken over 'biters', all she knows is how to survive and how to kill. This is the world where survival of the fittest theory rules, literally. However, one fine day, she gets a chance to

Zombies(Biters) many have watched many movies, I never read a book on this topic. We might see politicians who are very thirst for power either in movies or in real. This shows us how humans are thirsty for power. In the quest of Biters Alice was born, she spent her entire life in a dead land, her education teaches about the guns and how to win the ongoing war for survival against the Biters.

The cover is simple and beautiful and the title is catching as we are already familiar with the famous character on which the title is based. When I first looked at the title I thought, it's the same old famous book 'Alice in wonderland' but to my surprise it it's 'Alice in Deadland'.

What was more surprising to me was that this book is written by Mainak Dhar. Dhar has written some great thrillers based on Army combats with a pretty engaging plotline. Those books were real page turners.

As soon as the word Zombie comes in our mind, it reminds Hollywood horror movies and if they actually existed around us, it is definitely something to be scared of since Zombies eat Humans & they are brainless to think on whom they are attacking.
We very well know the concept that suddenly the dead started walking and we named them Zombies but very few people know the root cause of it.

"Alice in Deadland" is a trilogy which tries to clear the misconception between Humans & Zombies.

Remarkable plot twists

First of all, being a Disney fan and especially Alice's, I was amazed by the plot. I mean, I never thought Alice in Wonderland can be used as a reference to change and save humanity. Thanks to Author for this story.
It is trilogy by an Indian author. I have read some trilogies like "The Sydney Rey Mysteries" and "The Brontë Sisters". And I love them.

Trilogies have pros and cons: the common con of it is lengthy. Obviously, because it's all the series are published together.

ALICE IN DEADLAND TRIOLOGY the name may sound similar to most of us. But the story is very much interesting and different than the one we have in our mind when we hear the title.
It is a story by Mainak Dhar about a girl named Alice.

So the book has three parts.
ALICE IN DEADLAND: This book starts with the introduction on how Alice was born and how she met bunny ,the biters (zombies) and their queen . She learns that there was more to what she was told and she knew only one side of the story.
