that old black magic

Seeing Redd  by Frank Beddor (#2 in The Looking Glass Wars) 2007 (371 pgs)

As she adjusts to her regained rule and strengthens her imaginative powers, Alyss faces double the trouble as two villainous despots separately scheme to steal her queendom. Her evil aunt Redd is back for another round- raising an army from earth where, after escaping through the Heart Crystal she and The Cat have been re-imagined by an accommodating artist, albeit a bit fuzzily. King Arch of neighboring Boarderland has also been coveting the crown, laying plots and WWMDs under cover of political friendship. And if besiegement weren’t enough, Alyss is also struggling with her feelings for her childhood friend Dodge, now leader of her personal guard. A strong entry in a meticulously imagined series. I look forward to more.
