#Review of Unhinged (Splintered, #2) by @aghowardwrites #Giveaway #Thanks @ABRAMSBYR

Alyssa Gardner has been down the rabbit hole and faced the bandersnatch. She saved the life of Jeb, the guy she loves, and escaped the machinations of the disturbingly seductive Morpheus and the vindictive Queen Red. Now all she has to do is graduate high school and make it through prom so she can attend the prestigious art school in London she's always dreamed of.

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.

As prom and graduation creep closer, Alyssa juggles Morpheus’s unsettling presence in her real world with trying to tell Jeb the truth about a past he’s forgotten. Glimpses of Wonderland start to bleed through her art and into her world in very disturbing ways, and Morpheus warns that Queen Red won’t be far behind.

If Alyssa stays in the human realm, she could endanger Jeb, her parents, and everyone she loves. But if she steps through the rabbit hole again, she'll face a deadly battle that could cost more than just her head.

A. G. Howard

Biography

A.G. Howard was inspired to write SPLINTERED while working at a school library. She always wondered what would've happened had the subtle creepiness of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland taken center stage, and she hopes her darker and funkier tribute to Carroll will inspire readers to seek out the stories that won her heart as a child.

When she's not writing, A.G.'s pastimes are reading, rollerblading, gardening, and family vacations which often include impromptu side trips to 18th century graveyards or condemned schoolhouses to appease her overactive muse.






I will be forever obsessed with this retelling of Alice in Wonderland!  This series has made my daughter fall in love with the world of Wonderland as well.  This second book in the series will show you even more of the dark retelling world of Wonderland and make you wish for book three!  

The ending of this one will have you screaming and I am so glad that I get to read book three now!

Since I haven't read any books in the Splintered series yet, i would have to say Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter!

Lewis Carroll's version is still my favorite BUT I do like to see authors' versions or remakes of original fairy tales. Look forward to this one.
