Review: Normally I would post the official summary, but as not everyone has read Splintered (the first book in this trilogy), I don’t want anything to be ruined and the summary does give away some things. In general, this is the continuing story of Alyssa and her adventures with the real Wonderland, a place way creepier than the story Lewis Carroll wrote about. In Splintered, Alyssa was taken on a journey with Jeb and Morpheus by her side. In Unhinged, this is the same, except Wonderland has come to Alyssa’s world instead of vice versa.
I remember reading a review a long time ago where the reviewer wished Alyssa had actually gone to Wonderland. This aspect didn’t really bother me as we still learn more about Wonderland’s inhabitants, with some even entering this world. As for Alyssa’s companions, Morpheus is still just as infuriating in this book as he is in the first. It’s fascinating to learn more about him and his motivations though. As for Jeb, he’s obviously a good guy but he seems to think Alyssa can’t do things on her own. Honestly, I wish the books were more “girl power” than love triangle, but it does fairly well in that regard.
Unhinged was an enjoyable read and I am very curious to see how things end in Ensnared. I hope to be able to read it soon!
