Book Review: Ensnared
Book 3 in the Splintered Trilogy
AUTHOR: A. G. Howard
PUBLISHED: January 2015
PREMISE: Alyssa goes back to Wonderland to find Jeb and Morpheus and take down Queen Red once and for all.
MY REVIEW; And so my favorite crackish like re-imagining of Alice and Wonderland comes to a close. It's always a bit sad when a favorite ends but it has to happen sometime. Luckily this one went out with a bang and not a whimper.
Every story line was neatly tied up and taken care of. There were revelations and even a relatively satisfactory solving of the love triangle that didn't try to villify either guy. I say relatively because I personally feel like this could have been a situation where we could have had OT3. I mean hell, Morpheus even accuses Jeb of having a thing for him too! But no, we have to keep it all hetero normative and single couple only. Never mind that she loves both of them, and they both love her, and there's attraction to each other on their parts. Nope, can't have OT3 at all. Sigh. One day guys, I swear, one day we will have a YA series that does OT3. It's coming any day now, I tell you.
But other then that personal disappointment, this was a satisfying end to a overall satisfying trilogy. If you're a fan of Alice and Wonderland and don't mind twisty tales where the main character isn't perfect, then absolutely read this trilogy.
WHO SHOULD READ: fans of the first 2 books, Alice in Wonderland fans, retelling fans
MY RATING: Four out of Five OT3s that could have been
