This review is also featured on Behind the Pages: Ensnared

Morpheus and Jeb have been taken into the looking glass world. A realm where the use of netherling magic mutates inhabitants into horrific versions of themselves. It is also the only way into Wonderland now that the rabbit hole has been sealed. Alyssa must enter the looking glass world to save the boys, and put an end to Red. But will she be able to balance both her human and netherling side, or be torn apart by the battle within?

Ensnared takes up the crown of macabre that the first book did so well and brings it back to life. The looking glass world brings to life the darker side of the netherlings and shows how they can lust for bloodshed and pain. And in a cruel twist of fate, Alyssa will find that Red’s magic may be the very thing that will help her and her loved ones survive. Stepping out of the real world and into the looking glass world allows A. G. Howard to let her imagination run wild and coax to life the story I had hoped book two would be.

Now there are still some troupes hanging around. The love triangle is still weaving its way into the story and pulling Alyssa in two different directions, but it is much more balanced this time. Jeb and Morpheus aren’t solely good and evil. There is quite the blend in each boy and it makes decisions all the harder on Alyssa. I also enjoyed the new twists within Jeb’s character, despite how it takes him in a new direction.

I did find that some plot points fizzled out too soon. Alyssa would find herself being told not to do something and within pages that something occurs. Instead of drawing out the story and building up the tension, it was rushed. Granted the ending does tie the series up quite well, and the twist made my heartstrings tremble.

If you enjoy Alice in Wonderland and like reading young adult that teeters on the edge of adulthood, give the Splintered series a try. ( )

“Jeb is an anchor; he holds me grounded to my humanity and compassion. But Morpheus is the wind; he drags me kicking and screaming to the highest precipice, shoves me off, then watches me fly with netherling wings. When Jeb's at my side, the world is a canvas--unblemished and welcoming; when I'm with Morpheus, it's a wanton playground--wicked and addictive.”
― A.G. Howard, Ensnared

I try to express only my most honest opinion in a spoiler free way. If you feel anything in my review is a spoiler and is not already hidden in spoiler brackets please let me know. Thank you.
Alyssa is on a mission to save her mom, Jeb, and Morpheus. After her dad gets his memories back the two of them head to the land of AnyElsewhere to first rescue Jeb and Morpheus and destroy the Red Queen once and for all before saving her mom and fixing Wonderland. But when she gets there she soon comes to realize that things will not be that simple. To much has changed and there is more that needs fixing then she thought. Also her heart is still torn between the two men and she knows eventually she will have to choose.

I loved this book so, so, sooooo much. This is an amazing series. Outside of the companion book this is the end. It finished up everything nicely but I'm still so sad to see it end. It was an amazing story and the best Alice in Wonderland retelling I have read so far. I started out 100% shipping Jeb and Alyssa, but already at book two I was starting to also cheer for Morpheus. This book had me (as well as Alyssa) completely torn between the two. This book has everything. Lots of wonder, chaos, adventure, action, romance, and feels. If you haven't read this series, then I highly recommend it. I know that I be rereading this series and often.

How I choose my rating:
1* Did not finish, or hated it but forced myself to finish.
2** Didn't really like it. Didn't hate it but not sure why I finished it other then for some closure.
3*** I liked it. I had some issues with it, but as a whole it was good. I probably won't reread again ever, but there is a chance I might finish the series. (If part of one) But if not it's not a huge loss.
4**** I really liked this book. Maybe not a work of genius, but highly entertaining. I might reread this again, and I will finish the series. (If part of one) I would recommend to those I know hold interest in this books content.
5***** I loved this book. I found little to no issues with it at all. I will definitely be rereading this and probably more than once. I will finish the series and reread it multiple times. (If part of one) I will recommend this book to EVERYONE!!!!

the ending was sweet, reminded me a bit of the Infernal Devices ending.

It took me forever, but I'm finally done!

Although I didn't connect with this one as well as I did with the first two, it's still a great read and has a satisfying conclusion. It seems that all is lost multiple times as you read through the story, but somehow, it all works out by the end.

Recommended for fans of the first two.

Can't wait to see what Howard comes up with next! ( )

I shouldn't have waited so long to pick up this series...I struggled to remember and connect with the characters. However, this book was very fast-paced and made for a quicker read than I had anticipated. The story is a good combination of fantasy and the absurd, which works well for an Alice in Wonderland retelling. Overall, fun reading but best read directly after its prequels. ( )
