Even if it means challenging Queen Red to a final battle of wills and wiles . . . and even if the only way to Wonderland, w that the rabbit hole is closed, is through the looking-glass world--a parallel dimension filled with mutated and violent netherling outcasts.In the final installment of the wildly popular Splintered trilogy, Alyssa and her dad journey into the heart of magic and mayhem in search of her mom and to set right all that's gone wrong. Together with Jeb and Morpheus, they must salvage Wonderland from the decay and destruction that has ensnared it. But if they succeed and come out alive, can everyone truly have their happily ever after?

Praise for Splintered: STARRED REVIEW Fans of dark fantasy, as well as of Carroll's Alice in all her revisionings (especially Tim Burton's), will find a lot to love in this compelling and imaginative vel. --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books Alyssa is one of the most unique protagonists I've come across in a while. Splintered is dark, twisted, entirely riveting, and a truly romantic tale. --USA Today Brilliant, because it is ambitious, inventive, and often surprising -- a contemporary reworking of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, '' with a deep bow toward Tim Burton's 2010 film version. --The Boston Globe It's a deft, complex metamorphosis of this children's fantasy made more enticing by competing romantic interests, a psychedelic setting, and more mad violence than its original. --Booklist Protagonist Alyssa...is an original. Howard's visual imagination is superior. The story's creepiness is intriguing as horror, and its hyptic tone and setting, at the intersection of madness and creativity, should sweep readers down the rabbit hole. --Publishers Weekly While readers will delight in such recognizable scenes as Alyssa drinking from a bottle to shrink, the richly detailed scenes that stray from the original will entice the imagination. These adventures are indeed wonderful. --BookPage Attention to costume and setting render this a visually rich read... --Kirkus Reviews Wonderland is filled with much that is t as wonderful as might be expected, and yet, it is in Wonderland that Alyssa accepts her true nature. The cover with its swirling tendrils and insects surrounding Alyssa will surely attract teen readers who will t disappointed with this magical, edgy tale. --Reading Today Online Creepy, descriptive read with a generous dollop of romance. --School Library Journal|
