Plot

In the original game, the general story comes from Alice's bio: she is a treasure hunter who one day discovers the "Queen's Gate", which unleashes a battle across space-time.

In the novels, the plot is expanded a little more (though characters from other franchises do not appear), introducing her rival Dorothy, Alice's mother Lewis, and Dorothy's mother Glinda, as they fight against various monsters.
