Sintesi dell'editore

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 at 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? Listeners will swoon over the satisfying return to Howard's bold, sensual reimagining of Carroll's classic.

Awesome!!!

I liked the first book, Splintered. I really liked this one. The series is a riff on Alice in Wonderland mixed with the teen angst, love triangle of Twilight. I can picture the Team Jeb and Team Morpheus shirts. I had to stop listening when it got too angsty for me, that's the problem with being in your 30's and still listening/reading YA fiction. Once I got over wanting to slap Alyssa for being a whiner I really got into it. Rebecca Gibel is the perfect narrator for this book. Great book!

So in Love with this Series

I am so in love with this series. The addition of having her mom becoming more in the series was a delight and I highly enjoyed that. Rebecca does an amazing job with being a narrator for the book. This book keeps you on the edge of your seat. Can't wait until the next one.

Darker Than Book One

This second book in the Splintered series is a little weirder than the first even though it is wholly set here in the modern world. It’s exactly a year after the events of the first book and Wonderland is in chaos. Alyssa struggles to keep the two parts of herself in check. The human half of her heart is devoted to Jeb, her family’s blossoming new dynamic, and the future she’s been dreaming of in London as soon as she graduates. But the Netherland Queen half of her heart longs to give in to her budding powers, Morpheus’s increasingly hard to ignore advances, Wonderland and everything it has to offer... On top of all that she’ll be fighting old enemies and new while still managing to make it to prom!

Another Masterpiece!

This book was so good, just as good as the first if not better. Also, the ending had me shook! Can't wait to read Ensnared!

decent YA book

I liked this one more than the last one, it felt more organic, less forced. I found myself legit caring for the characters which is a bonus when you're reading a 4 part series, lol. I will say if you can get through the first one this one rewards you by tying in the previous elements from the last book as well and introducing new concepts but it doesn't seem like a facade in this book. it feels like an established mythos which is good.

Neverland is wonderful, but Alyssa ruins it.

I love the macabre look at wonderland, and I love the interesting creatures, lore, and mentality of it's denizens. What then steps in to it is a hypocritical indecisive little brat that expounds about jealousy while seeking the romantic adoration of someone other than her boyfriend. A boyfriend that is very prone to violence, yet he is considered so wonderful for being "protective". Alyssa's indecision between her boyfriend and the much more awesome Morpheus is a cause of unnecessary drama and irritation. I guess that's how she's always been depicted, which is being so boy hungry that she needs to sniff any male within her vicinity. I get that the author wants immersion, but what's with her sniffing more people than a puppy? Also much of the problems happen due to her indecisive nature and unwillingness to tell anyone any pertinent information. Alyssa is the cause of so many eye rolling problems it's dizzying. I want to love this series, I really do. The author makes it so hard to stomach the anguish caused by Alyssa being more of a dingbat than a queen.

Great story, dreadful narration

I enjoyed this story, it’s just a pity the narrator can’t do the British accent at all -it sounds like a bizarre mix of American and Australian. Such a shame, as Morpheus’ cockney accent is such a big part of who he is. For this reason, I’ve spent most of the time reading the physical book instead of listening to the audio version!

A great listen

I love this series of stories, and think they are a fantastic take on old classics. I really like the characters, and find it really hard to stop listening once I start. Would recommend.
