This is book two of the Splintered series. If you haven’t read the first one check out the review here.
It has been a year since Alyssa has been down the Rabbit Hole and literally all hell has broken loose in the real world and in Wonderland. Her mother is being overprotective, Jeb doesn’t remember anything about Wonderland, graduation and prom is approaching and mostly importantly the Red Queen is in the real world.
All Alyssa wants to do is graduate and go to London with her boyfriend for school. But Morpheus needs Alyssa to save Wonderland if she doesn’t the consequences can be UN-fixable.
If you saw my review of the first book, you will understand that I really didn’t care for Alyssa or Jeb for that matter. I still don’t. Actually I think I dislike them more in this book and I honestly didn’t think that was possible.
Alyssa is a selfish girl. All she cares about is Jeb. For the past year she has disregarded her duties as Queen of Wonderland and because of that the Red Queen was able to take control and destroy so much. Her selfishness throughout the book is so sickening, reading this book was a struggle.
Alyssa also decides not to tell her mother most of what happened. So there is a struggle between Alyssa and her mother. Alyssa doesn’t trust her and her mother is fighting that. I also did not understand this because Alyssa went into Wonderland to lift the curse to save her mother and yet now she can’t even be near her.
Finally, my biggest issue was if Alyssa couldn’t understand something or didn’t like the way things was going it was Morpheus fault. Really? You have a evil Queen destroying Wonderland and hunting you down in your real world and it is the guy who sacrificed his life for you fault?
Not feeling this book. Overall it gets: 2 Pickles
