Unhinged by A. G. Howard
One of my favorite things about Splintered was all the descriptions of Wonderland. The world sounded so beautifully hideous. This book is set mostly in the human world, so there are not as many of these awesome Wonderlandeqsue images. Also, the characters are a little less likable for me in this novel. Jeb came across at times as wooden and kinda assy. Morpheus is always assy, but he still manages to be decent enough to just keep my sympathy...most of the time. Alyssa's conflicted desires to be in the human world and in Wonderland were understandable, but she did not handle the situation she was in very well at all and allowed some of her family and friends to suffer.
While Splintered is a book that could stand on it its own; Unhinged is obviously a book that needs a follow up. The main action didn't start until rather late in the book, and there was resolution, only an obvious start to a next chapter. I am glad I read this, and I am very much looking forward to reading the next book about Wonderland, but this one fell a little flat for me.
