After surviving a disastrous battle at prom, Alyssa has embraced her madness and gained perspective. She’s determined to rescue her two worlds and the people and netherlings she loves. Even if it means challenging Queen Red to a final battle of wills and wiles . . . and even if the only way to Wonderland, now that the rabbit hole is closed, is through the looking-glass world—a parallel dimension filled with mutated and violent netherling outcasts. In the final installment of the wildly popular Splintered trilogy, Alyssa and her dad journey into the heart of magic and mayhem in search of her mom and to set right all that’s gone wrong. Together with Jeb and Morpheus, they must salvage Wonderland from the decay and destruction that has ensnared it. But if they succeed and come out alive, can everyone truly have their happily ever after?
My rating: 5 stars
Oh, how I loved this series! My imagination soared as high as Alyssa did with her wings. I swooned over Jeb and Morpheus, because honestly...how can you choose between them?
While my mind continues to whirl from the magical world Ms. Howard has introduced in the Splintered series, my heart is full. I couldn't ask for a better ending to this series. I loved every minute of all three books. If anything, I am sad to leave such rich, full characters. While the last book was darker than the previous two, it also kept me guessing through the entire story as to what would happen next. The madness and wonder that is Wonderland shines in this series. Jeb and Morpheus were both worthy opponents and worthy of Alyssa's love and devotion. Usually, I have no trouble picking a favorite in a love triangle, but I couldn't choose between these two. They are both brave and wonderful in their own right. Alyssa is a strong heroine, one who is willing to give up everything she loves for what she believes in. Her qualities as a leader are evident. I will miss this vivid interpretation of Wonderland, but it will live on in my imagination.
Reading is Power
Before I was an author, I was an avid reader. I absolutely adore books and getting lost in the worlds that other people create. I love to discuss books, too. Feel free to leave comments. :-)
