Unhinged (Splintered, #2) by A.G Howard ~ Chapter Sampler Review


Book Synopsis:
Expected Publication: January 7th 2014

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.

Excitment 2 the MAX:
I would just like to thank Amulet and of course the wonderful A.G Howard for providing me with a sample of the second book in the Splintered trilogy. 

I have been in such a reading slump lately. Every book I seem to pick up I only ever get 100 pages in before I go meh and put it down. But when I saw that there was a chapter sample of the second book in the Splintered trilogy on NetGalley well lets just say I got uber excited and after I requested it sat at my computer watching the screen waiting to see if Amulet would accept. Thank the book Gods that they did, because I have found my enjoyment in reading again.

So I’m pretty sure that the sample I read was the first chapter. AND OH MY GOODNESS! How I have forgotten how quickly Howard can draw you into her stories, how her sentences create masterful images of scenes that you imagine with such clarity, and of course how I have missed her twist on Wonderland.

Splintered was such an unexpected joy to read, and I can’t express how much you need to pick it up! I love retellings and this series is definitely one of the best!
So incredibly excited for January!
