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.Praise for Unhinged
Well we all know how much I loved Morpheus in Splintered, and I love him even more in Unhinged. He’s such a complex character, and never fails to amaze me. Alyssa shows how strong she can be. She’s definitely scared, but learns how to try to connect the two halves of herself. Jeb, well he’s not my favorite in this book. But I’m also not a Team Jeb gal either. Give me the hot moth man any day!
Unhinged is pretty fast paced. We get action in both Wonderland and the human realm. If you have an aversion to clowns, I will say there is a freaky one in this book. I don’t know why it had to be included except to scare the daylights out of me. I hate clowns! Anyways, I won’t get into specifics with the plot. It definitely needs to be read so that you can grow as Alyssa does. There’s betrayal, jealousy, love, and adventure. What more could you ask for with this cast of characters.
