Quickie Review

I’m going to make this review a quickie, because I’m trying to leave out spoilers for those that haven’t read the series.

I will say I was so happy to be back in the world of Wonderland.  It’s creepy, twisted, and everything I love.  I missed these characters, and was excited when this book was announced.  I’ve put off reading it for a while because I knew it would bring up all the emotions.  And that it did.

Untamed is broken up into 3 sections.  We get to see what happens with Alyssa’s mom, Morpheus, and Alyssa.  We get a look into the past, present, and future.  It was everything I hoped it would be and more.  There were so many times where I laughed and times when the tears were rolling down my cheeks.  (Those times elicited laughs from The Hubs.) But I felt complete after reading this book.

I adore Jeb, but Morpheus will always be my favorite.  Even though all the characters have changed throughout the series, I think he has the most.  I don’t want to get into the details because like I said SPOILERS, but fans of this series need to read this book.  You will no be disappointed, and we get to see the scenes we’ve always wondered about.
