Review: Through the Rabbit Hole

Through the Rabbit Hole by Lisa Kumar

Social worker Natalie Danvers never thought she would fall head first into her very own dimensional tear - straight into a fey lord's lap. The handsome but infuriatingly vague Lorh insists she's stuck in his land for three weeks and that only she can discover the reasons behind her appearance in TirAnn. Natalie's convinced this is all nonsense until forgotten memories of Lorh and his siblings resurface and collide with reason. Just who and what is she to Lorh and his family?


Through the Rabbit Hole was a really neat story! At novella length, the story has no time for dull moments – it was interesting the whole way through. It's about a 27 year old woman named Natalie who falls through a dimensional tear into a land of Fey. Natalie has no idea how or why she has gotten there, and the Fey Lord Lorh won't give her any answers. He continuously tells her that she needs to figure out the answers on her own, which is frustrating to say the least!

Natalie slowly starts having flashes of memories that overwhelm and confuse her. Most of the story is from Natalie's perspective, but the few times we see Lorh's perspective let us see just how much he is hurting. Natalie quickly gets drawn into Lorh and his wonderful family, despite being clueless about what is going on. Not until the end, do things unravel and we begin to see the whole picture.

The writing, plot, and characters are all great. My only complaint is wanting more. I wanted to know more about her Earth life, and what she was potentially giving up. I also wanted more details on how the storyline came to be. Maybe it was because I was reading this at midnight, but my mind hurt a little bit at trying to think of the possibility of how this could happen. Now, that I have been completely vague and caught your interest – you better check this book out for yourself so you can see what I'm talking about! This novella may be focused on two adult characters, but it's a “clean” book that would absolutely be fine for young adults to read. There are teens in this book as well, so really I think paranormal lovers of any age would enjoy this quick read!

  2. New follower here. :) Very good review...I recently read Through the Rabbit Hole and also enjoyed it. Time is always a tricky element, and in this book, Lisa's twist was well-conceived and well-executed. Like you, I would have liked it to have been longer but this book really kept my interest all the way through it as Natalie's three weeks ticked by.
    Lisa also happens to be my featured author this week and is giving away a copy of this book to one lucky commenter.
