Meet the Author

A. G. Howard wrote Splintered while working at a school library. She always wondered what would've happened if Alice had grown up and the subtle creepiness of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland had taken center stage in her story, and she hopes her darker and funkier tribute to Carroll will inspire readers to seek out the stories that won her heart as a child. She lives in Amarillo, Texas.

    great

    I can't believe I almost forgot to read this! I read this after I finished Unhinged. In which it was just fine reading after as long as it wasn't before Splintered.

    Oh these boys! I loved reading about what Jeb went through before the Jabberlock box and his feelings for Alyssa. Also to see Morpheus just being Morpheus. I only wished it was longer! I wanted to see more into their heads.

    An original ebook-only novella in the Splintered se

    <blockquote> An original ebook-only novella in the Splintered series, told from the points of view of both Jeb and Morpheus. Morpheus wants to know more about his rival for Alyssa's affections, so he digs into Jeb's memories of his time in Wonderland. But he may be surprised by what he finds. 

    This brand-new story and perspective from A.G. Howard's dark, magical world stands alone, but also provides a tantalizing glimpse of what's to come in Unhinged, the sequel to Splintered.</blockquote>


    This is a very brief novella, in which we get to learn more about both Jeb and Morpheus. However the way we learn about them is very creative and interesting, for we learn about both as Morpheus experiences Jeb's memories. Although Jeb is terrified of becoming like his father, he proves time and again that the two men could not be more different. Where his father is violent and angry Jeb is levelheaded and gentle. Even when his frustration with Morpheus starts to get the best of him he manages to pull back from the edge, for his love for Alyssa overrides any aggressive tendencies he may want to express.

    Too bad Morpheus looks to be planning to use Jeb’s internal fault lines to beat him in winning the lovely Alyssa to his side. This demonstrates his selfishness, for he comes across as far too impatient to wait and allow Alyssa to live out a mortal life with Jeb, before then returning to Morpheus and Wonderland, having fulfilled her mortal dreams.

    A Fun Novella

    This is a fun extra bit of insight into both Jeb and Morpheus. I like the chance to understand their motivations and feelings better, plus it's a great teaser to get me back into the storyline before reading the sequel. Make sure to read Splintered first!

    The Moth in the Mirror is a nice addition to the Splintered tr



    The Moth in the Mirror is a nice addition to the Splintered trilogy. The writing was, as always, fantastic. I love the insight this e-novella offers.


    Morpheus made me shake my head more than once. He does the wrong things but his intentions are usually good. The thing I'm coming to understand about Morpheus is that he doesn't just see things differently from humans; his understanding of life and its concepts is basically wildly skewed. He loves her the way he understands love to be (which is wrong a lot of the time) but it isn't really his fault.


    We were mostly in Jeb's head which, honestly, I got a bit annoyed. I mean, I knew we would be in his head but I didn't expect to get as annoyed with Jeb as I did. It wasn't to the point where I couldn't stand it all though. I do wish we had been able to have a bit more of Morpheus's thoughts and narrative during this time.


    Poor Morpheus is more determined than ever to make Alyssa fall in love with him and leave Jeb. Sadly, he's going to end up making her pretty mad if he doesn't change his plans. But I still can't help but root for him.


    Don't judge me.

    Love this sequil

    This should be the book of the year. Nothing csn top it.I love morphous no matter how stupid he is.And I think Jeb is sexy. This is exactly what tweeners such as myself should read so they can get to know what relation ships are like expesally when a girl has to choose between two different guys. I can't wait to read the next book. I hope the author will continue the serios so young readers won't be bored. I read this serous non-stop and finished it. I just have to con ince my brother to read it. Btw-My name is Annie and i am 12 and in sixth grade abd i am single. I you wan't to talk put my name in your title and i will put retu when i answer you.( Put your nam in your post) LOVE THIS SEQUIL!
