Splintered by A.G. Howard (Book Review)
When her mother’s mental health takes a turn for the worse, Alyssa learns that what she thought was fiction is based in terrifying reality. The real Wonderland is a place far darker and more twisted than Lewis Carroll ever let on. There, Alyssa must pass a series of tests, including draining an ocean of Alice’s tears, waking the slumbering tea party, and subduing a vicious bandersnatch, to fix Alice’s mistakes and save her family. She must also decide whom to trust: Jeb, her gorgeous best friend and secret crush, or the sexy but suspicious Morpheus, her guide through Wonderland, who may have dark motives of his own.
OMG! OMG! OMG! That was so good! This was a brilliant idea of a book! A crazy Alice in Wonderland? I think that I just died from happiness. The world that A.G. Howard created is so cool, mysterious, and mad that you instantly fall in love with it. The way she wrote the book had so much action and suspense that it kept me yearning for more.
My only problem with this book was that I found myself lost a couple of times in the middle. It was almost as if there was a little too much madness going on, and my brain could not wrap itself around it. For no reason what so ever, I would find myself lost, and I would have to go back a re-read that page because I had no idea what was going on.
Overall, this was a fun, fast paced book that kept me turning the pages. With a fun, mad world, a strong lead protagonist, and romance that you don’t hate, I highly recommend. I will definitely be picking up the next book in the series very soon.
I loved this book!
