See my review of Splintered (Book #1) here.
While I absolutely loved Splintered, Unhinged fell short of my expectations. And let me say straight away that this had nothing to do with the writing or the story (mostly - prom fell flat for me). The reason I loved the first book so much was because I was transported to the crazy world of Wonderland. Unhinged didn't offer that to me. Instead of getting the fish out of water story I was expecting, a few of the Wonderland elements made their way to Alyssa's world, wreaking a little havoc here and there. And to me, the main focus of the novel just seemed to be Morpheus trying to derail Alyssa's relationship with Jeb instead of the Red Queen's attempt to attack Alyssa. I honestly think that if Morpheus had been given a point a view, I would've enjoyed this novel a lot more - because just getting a peek into that mad little mind of his would be incredibly whack-a-doo.
It was nice to see Alyssa's mom play an important role for once, and now that I know Alyssa will be forced back into Wonderland for the next book, I'm sure my rating will go back up for this series. Check it out peeps. It was just my personal preferences that made me go meh for this book.
