Review

"I highly recommend this series to you all. Take a tumble down the dark brightly coloured rabbit hole, play with devious and alluring Wonderland creatures and put your mind to the test and see if you want to resurface from this read." Big Book Little Book Blog "The perfect continuation from Splintered, Unhinged was madness and crazy combined into a pocket of badassery encased with gruesome creatures and magic. Suspense and a cliff-hanger that'll leave you wanting Ensnared the minute you finish reading, Wonderland really was only the beginning." Studioreads Blog

Product Description

Alyssa Gardner has been down the rabbit hole. She was crowned Queen of the Red Court and faced the bandersnatch. She saved the life of Jeb, the boy she loves, and escaped the machinations of the disturbingly appealing Morpheus. Now all she has to do is graduate high school. That would be easier without her mother, freshly released from an asylum, acting overly protective and suspicious. And it would be much simpler if the mysterious Morpheus didn't show up for school one day to tempt her with another dangerous quest in the dark, challenging Wonderland--where she (partly) belongs. Could she leave Jeb and her parents behind again, for the sake of a man she knows has manipulated her before? Will her mother and Jeb trust her to do what's right? Readers will swoon over the satisfying return to Howard's bold, sensual reimagining of Carroll's classic.

(NOTE - There will be spoilers from the first book included here, as I'm assuming if you are reading this then you have read 'Splintered'? Also, it's necessary for me to talk about some plot points during my review, but I will not give away anything major and will not spoil the ending! )

The aesthetic in me adores these books for their covers alone - seriously so beautiful! Although I have to admit that I picture MY (yes, MY) Morpheus looking just a little bit more rough around the edges than pretty boy on the cover here - but that's by-the-by :) Gorgeous coverart yet again.

'Unhinged' picks up a year after 'Splintered' ended. Alyssa has handed the crown over to Grenadine and Ivory to rule in her stead, and is just trying to get on with her human life. With her mother adjusting to life out of the asylum, prom and graduation coming up, and an overhanging issue of taking the 'next step' with her human boyfriend Jeb - Alyssa has alot going on.

The last thing she needs is for Morpheus to start edging into her life again. Visiting her dreams, sending her messages - until finally entering her world completely (disguised as enigmatic exchange student 'M'). There are problems in Wonderland - Queen Red is on the loose, gathering up an army and preparing to take back what belongs to her - and punish those who betrayed her.

Whilst Alyssa is trying desperately to live a normal life - the calling of Wonderland is too loud to ignore. With Morpheus on her back, the warnings in her artwork, creepy messages from an unknown sender - and all manner of Wonderland creatures spilling out of the looking glass and into the human world - Alyssa has no choice but to stick to her duties, confront Red, and defend Wonderland as their Queen - but at what cost?

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent sequel! 9 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback
This book is a worthy successor to the previous book Splintered and continue the trials and tribulations of Alyssa Gardner, ancestor of Alice Liddell, the original Alice from Lewis Carroll's classic tale.

It takes place a year after the events of the first book and Alyssa is happily back in the human world and is blissfully dating her crush Jeb, which a freak accident starts a whole new set of unfortunate events to test her and her loved ones.

I liked that this book takes place mostly in the human world rather than in Wonderland, although Wonderland is very present throughout the book. It's fantastic to see how Alyssa deals with the intrusion into her human world by the netherlings and how she is forced to deal Morpheus in her own world. I am happy that Morpheus does grow as a character in this book and with the twist that comes from Ivory's vision of the future you get a much better understanding of him and his motives for his many, many actions which was well needed after the last book.

I must admit that this review is hard to write without giving too much away for those that haven't read this yet as there are several key pints I would love to mention but they are points that would spoil so I feel I can't. The presences of Alyssa mother in this book is wonderful and she is key to events that unfold and there is a second major twist to the tale that will changes things for the final book for certain and will affect the Gardner family as a whole. I did feel that Jeb was slightly under used in this book but I think he needed to be so that Morpheus could have a moment to shine and so Alison could take a step forward too.

5.0 out of 5 stars UNHINGED 4 Feb 2014
By mfu_11
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
UNHINGED is an amazing sequel to SPLINTERED. Alyssa is trying to detach herself from Wonderland, despite all the things that pull her back toward it—her art, her dreams and, of course, Morpheus. But Wonderland doesn’t wait for Alyssa to make up her mind, it brings the madness to her until she has no choice but to act. And there’s plenty of madness! Everything is described so incredibly. It is clear how much care has been put into each word chosen, weaving beautiful sentences that sweep you away with the rest of the story. In particular, the action scenes were chaotic and exciting, and the romance sizzled off the page. There are lots of twists in the story as we get deeper into this world and get to know the characters on a whole other level. And THAT ENDING! Oh wow. You just know you’re being set up for something big. ENSNARED is going to hit it out of the park with its awesomeness!

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.25 dark and seductive stars 23 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
4.25 stars

UNHINGED is the second storyline in A.G.Howard's exotic and dark retelling of Alice in Wonderland. Advancing the storyline one year, our heroine will discover that Wonderland is only a mirror away and there is more to her familial connection than she could ever have imagined. While life begins to settle down at home, Wonderland is dying; destroyed by Red and her minions; waiting for Alyssa to return and face her future.

The premise follows Alyssa as she prepares for graduation and prom. Her love for Jeb is unfailing but Morpheus's return finds Alyssa wavering between a future with Jeb or a future as Queen of Wonderland. A.G.Howard pulls the reader into a journey of twists and turns with some of our favorite Wonderland characters who are barely recognizable beyond their previous incarnation. Skeletal rabbits; a garden of flesh eating plants; and enough insects to give the ick factor a shiver or three are pulled into the real world to wreak havoc in Alyssa's less than orderly life. Add a possessed clown that could rival `IT' on the creepy scale, and you have the premise for a storyline straight from a hellish nightmare.

UNHINGED is a less complicated storyline than SPLINTERED; easier to follow as the sights and sounds are more familiar than the dark fantasy of Wonderland but less complicated does not necessarily mean less entertaining. We follow Alyssa as she is once again pulled into a war to save Wonderland-where the Ivory Queen has been imprisoned in silk and the Red Queen awaits a dual for the crown.

The love triangle, a prerequisite in most YA storylines, is framed by a look into a future and the possibility of a happily ever after.
