Publisher's Summary

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!

    All of the voices she plays is good but I have to love her Morpheus voice the best.

    "It's just ok but I still want to get through it."

    I have been a lover of all things wonderland since I was young so naturally I was beyond excited to read these books. The first one was a pretty good storyline but the writing is so novice and predictable that it's hard for me to stay with it. If not for the ties to Alice and wonderland I don't think I would continue.

    This book drags on SO much it hurts. I would still like to finish to say I gave it all I had but it isn't the best series. I did however enjoy how it ended this book but it took so much dragging on and teasing that I had already lost my flare for it.

    I do not mean to deter anyone else from reading it you may have very different opinions but I am let down mostly because of my horrible strong connection with anything wonderland that I am disappointed.

    "Either way, I win"

    After the first book, we've learned that Alyssa has become the Queen of the Red Court and Jeb does not remember his trip down the rabbit hole where he risked his life to save Alyssa; Morpheus, her childhood friend, is forever manipulative, and we're never sure if he loves Alyssa or is using her.

    Start Book 2: Morpheus comes to the human realm to ask Alyssa to come back to save Wonderland from disaster; she doesn't want to go because she wants to talk to/be with Jeb. Stop. Wait. Making out with your boy toy is more important than saving Wonderland from all its suffering? Gosh.. Thankfully, Morpheus is persistent in his request, and that's our jumping off point for this book.

    Positive: The narration is amazing. I love the voice of Morpheus and I want him to come visit me in my dreams and read me bedtime stories.

    Negative:
    (1) There is too much of teen angst/drama.
    (2) The way Alyssa behaves is to cliche, and it's exhausting. After listening to the first hour or two, I found myself wondering if was worth listening to her over reacting and being generally overly dramatic.
    (3) Then we have to deal with the possessive, insecure and aggressive Jeb way more than we did last time.

    Alyssa is clearly in two very abusive relationships, with both Jeb and Morpheus, and I think it's unhealthy to let young girls read this and think that kind of behavior is okay. The way they act towards her is unacceptable. If she were to take a "Are you in an emotionally abusive relationship?" quiz, the answer would be "YES", across the board.

    **

    TLDR: This book is unoriginal and redundant but a happy waste of time if you can suffer through excessive teenage insecurity. The narration is great. I'll still listen to the next one because I just need to know how it ends.

    "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.
