Review: Untamed

Title: Untamed

Author: A.G. Howard

Date of Publication: December 15, 2015


Goodreads Summary:

A post-Ensnared collection of three stories—available in both print and e-versions.

Alyssa Gardner went down the rabbit hole and took control of her destiny. She survived the battle for Wonderland and the battle for her heart. In this collection of three novellas, join Alyssa and her family as they look back at their memories of Wonderland.

In Six Impossible Things, Alyssa recalls the most precious moments of her life after Ensnared, and the role magic plays in preserving the happiness of those she loves. Alyssa’s mother reminisces about her own time in Wonderland and rescuing the man who would become her husband in The Boy in the Web. And Morpheus delves into Jeb’s memories of the events of Splintered in The Moth in the Mirror, available in print for the first time.

This collection expands upon Ensnared‘s epilogue, and includes some deleted scenes to provide a “director’s cut” glimpse into the past and futures of our favorite Splintered characters.

My Review:

If you haven’t read the Splintered series stop now and go read them. This set of novellas were my absolute favorite of the whole book series!

First in the Boy in the Web we get to be in Alyssa’s mother’s head which I really liked because she was always such an interesting character. In the Moth in the Mirror we get to see Morpheus go inside of Jeb’s  memories from the first book which was really good because it was like we were getting two perspectives at one time.

Last we get Six Impossible Things. Now this is what I was craving for after reading Ensnared. Ensnared had one of the most perfect endings I had ever read, but endings always leave you wanting to still know what happened after.

Being in Alyssa’s head for this one was so miraculous. I loved how she has grown both as a human and as a netherling. I have been a Morpheus fan since day one but seeing her human life with Jeb I get it. To see them living out their human life together completed the human side of her, and it was heartbreaking to see her leave behind that life but to see her open her netherling self up to Wonderland was one of the most beautiful things I have ever read.

Every time there was a Morpheus scene I was literally so excited because everything that comes out of his mouth I love! The labor scenes are my absolute favorite, and it was hilarious with the whole craziness going on. My favorite characters were also back such as Rabid White who was his usual funny and creepy self. I will miss this magical world so much, but thank you A.G. for giving this to us!
