Review: Splintered

SPLINTERED

When Alice returned from Wonderland, she brought with her a curse- every woman in the Liddell family will be driven insane by haunting visions of that place. Alyssa, Alice’s great-granddaughter is determined to break the curse and heal her mother, so she plunges back into Wonderland. But this Wonderland is different, somehow darker and something sinister is happening…

I love the story of Alice In Wonderland. Alice’s fight to return to the real world, all while falling in love with the magical and mysterious Wonderland. Now, imagine when Alice returned to the real world visions of Wonderland haunted her. This is Alyssa’s reality. As a relative of the original Alice Liddell who went into Wonderland, Alyssa is destined to reach the same fate as her mother, who also has these visions, although her mother has never entered Wonderland. When Alyssa realizes her mother won’t be returning from the mental hospital for a very, very long time, she takes matters into her own hands.

This Wonderland is dark – the magic is still there but it has turned, the Red Queen is gone, the White Queen is locked up, and all of Alice’s friends aren’t up and running about anymore. Alyssa realizes that in order to save her mother, first she has to save Wonderland – a feat much more difficult than expected.

I absolutely adored this book. It’s deliciously addicting! The romance between Alyssa and her long time friend Jeb is continually being tested, the adventures in Wonderland nail-bitingly dangerous, and the plot line is fun, fantastical, and and pure enjoyment. This book is a fantastic sort-of sequel to the original Alice in Wonderland, and I learned so much more about Wonderland! Being immersed in the land full of speaking creatures and evil queens was so exciting! I highly, highly recommend this book for its amazing characters, exciting plot line, and fantastic writing.
