Book Review: Unhinged by A. G. Howard (Sneak Peek)

Please note, this is a review of a sneak peek, one chapter sampler. Not the full book.

It’s not very often I say this, but the cover really did draw my interest first and then I read that this based on Alice in Wonderland – loosely though, as this series takes place after Alice.

Unhinged is the second book in the Splintered series and having not (yet) read the first book – I was unsure what to expect but what can I say, Alice in Wonderland related things intrigue me.

Alyssa Gardner is a descendant of Alice (of the Wonderland fame of course) and she’s found herself involved in Wonderland – much more than she imagined.

Just enough information was giving in this one chapter to wet my appetite. Alyssa is pulled – much against her will, despite now being Queen of the Red Court – back into Wonderland, only to meet Morpheus.

Morpheus is a dark mysterious character. A very modern and grown up take on the Mad Hatter.
His message is simple – Wonderland is in danger, it’s crumbling and only Alyssa can save it.
However Morpheus is a conflicted character – he threatens Alyssa, restrains her but it’s clear he has some affection for her. He very much reminds me of Jareth in Labyrinth in that sense.

Alyssa has to make a choice it seems – the human world, or Wonderland, the catch is can one exist without the other?

I’m really taken in by this sample chapter – so I’ll definitely be buying the first book, and then Unhinged when it’s released.

*Unhinged (Splintered Series) by A. G. Howard is released 1 Oct 2013 in the United Kingdom. Check release dates for your country as they maybe different.
