    It's time to write the conclusion to your dark tale . . .

    Chapter I - Wonderland Maimed
    When Alice answers a distressed summons to return to Wonderland, she barely recognizes the befouled setting. Undaunted by the diseased ambiance, cavernous confusion, and mortal danger surrounding her, Alice sets out to undo the chaos.

    Chapter IV - An Infernal Chemistry
    Equipped with courage, a keen appetite for the bizarre, and an arsenal of transmogrified toys, she penetrates enemy strongholds, confronts the forces of evil, and puts the wicked Queen of Hearts and her innumerable minions in their place.

    Of the miraculous place of Alice's youth, no vestige survives. From the Fungiferous Forest to the Mad Hatter's party and beyond, Wonderland festers to its core. Faced with deadly creatures loyal to the Red Queen, Alice relies on her own devices to unravel Wonderland's woe.
