Unhinged by A.G. Howard
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Alyssa Gardner has traveled to Wonderland and survived with her head and sanity intact. All she wants now is to finish her senior year, attend prom and move to London so that she can attend art school. Her plans begin to falter when her mother is release from an asylum and decides to be over protective. To make matters worse, Morpheus reappears and wants her help with another quest to save Wonderland. As Wonderland is literally bleeding through her art, Morpheus promises that Queen Red is preparing for another battle. Can Alyssa keep her human part separate from her Wonderland self? Will she be able to protect those she loves?
Unhinged is the second book in the Splintered series and readers of the first book will not be disappointed. Howard’s dark spin of this classic story is tantalizing and spellbinding. Revelations concerning questions left unanswered in the first book gives the reader deeper insight into Wonderland, but since this is not a two book series, readers will be left with new questions. There are many references to the first book throughout this novel, so I do not recommend jumping into this story without reading Splintered. If you have not read the original Lewis Carroll books, you will probably be flocking to your nearest bookstore or library after reading this series. I can’t wait for Ensnared (Splintered #3), but too bad it isn’t coming out until 2015!
