Rabbit Hole

MYSTERY – FANTASY – HORROR

From V.J. Waks, author of the Award-winning Science Fiction series

TAU4 and HAMMERSPACE,

comes a  new Award-Winning Dark Fantasy Novel …. RABBIT HOLE.

Catapulting off the genius of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland stories,

RABBIT HOLE leads the reader along a much darker and more twisted path,

where a young hero battles through a startling, visually stunning land –

where wonder walks hand-in-hand with death. 

Love … Hate.

Life … Death.

What lies between them
is a RABBIT HOLE.

Reader Quotes

"Set in modern England, Waks' story takes you down the rabbit hole into a dark and dangerous world where Lewis Carroll's Wonderland characters are far more dangerous and menacing. Waks moves the story along rapidly, with each short chapter actively moving the plot line ahead. V.J. Waks has a highly visual writing style, it is easy to see what the characters are experiencing. You can imagine how this story would be presented in a movie. This is not a story for young children, but teenagers who read fantasy will get it right away and fans of Lewis Carroll will see their familiar settings extended in unexpected ways." - Ross

"Loved Tau and Hammerspace, so was curious about the Rabbit Hole. Loved the association with Alice in Wonderland, but don't assume that lets you know what happens next. Beautiful imagery, magic, mystery, adventure. A great read." - Lagioconda

"VJ Waks LOVES words and strings them together in her own beautiful unique way to create the imaginary world she writes about. If you like fiction, I expect you will enjoy having a peak into her creative vision." - Terry


Coming Soon!

RHUMBLINE, Book 3 in the TAU4 Series

A true heading – a course that cuts and connects every point in its path – a line.

A line whose source is truth, a force that defies the vagaries of fate – a line that leads to justice.

It is a line drawn in the sand, dividing right and wrong; mercy, and vengeance.

It is a line drawn in blood.

Where the quest for justice – and for vengeance – will find its resolution.

Where the limits of Time and Space will again be tested.

Where courage will take a stand against the forces of savage greed – and the threat of world dominion.

Where the fates of many will play out along the line of destiny – the RHUMBLINE.

It seeks the Future itself.
