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.

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.

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.

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!

<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&rsquo;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.

4.5 Stars I Loved, LOVED, LOVEDDDDD this short story!!! Being inside Jeb's mind, seeing his side of what happened, what he went through while separated from Alyssa, and what was going through his head as he traveled through Wonderland was just amazing!! And Morpheus, ooh, he's so deliciously sexy as he's strategizing, and conniving, and manipulative, and so dam enticing!! And if you put'em all together, HOT dam you've got one dangerously seductive, bombshell of a &quot;Son of a bug&quot; as Jeb would say it! ;) First, I have to give due where due deserves, Jeb is AWESOME!! I absolutely love him!! Now, do I love him more then Morpheus, probably not, but I do love him nevertheless!! Jeb was all kinds of sexy in his insane, loving, over protective, take charge and not ready to settle for anything short of saving the light in his life, Alyssa Gardner... And Morpheus, holy smokes, let me tell you, he is overfilling!! He filled me with all kinds of emotions, and had me drowning&mdash;trying to climb out and claim control. A.G. Howard really outdid herself with his character. I LOVED everything about him!! Granted, some may say he doesn't have some of the best qualities, but I beg to differ! He had all the ones that really mattered, plus, throw in a few others that builds his amazing character, and WOW, you have an EPIC, unforgettable, totally addicting, love interest that is sure to get you hot and bothered! ;) THE PLOT Morpheus is distraught over losing the only thing he's ever loved and really cared for, Alyssa Gardner, and vows to win her back, one way or another! So he goes to the Carpet beetle, keeper of memories, in search of hope, in search of the only thing to give him the upper hand in all this, Jebediah's memories, and in there, Jebediah's weakness... But as Morpheus replays Jebediah's every thought&mdash;his every feeling while in Wonderland, his every fear, his every pain that has intangled and embedded itself into Jebediah's heart, Morpheus starts to understand this Mortal more then he ever wanted too. He starts to relate in ways that shouldn't be, and then guilt starts to leak in, bleed itself within. But is Morpheus really ready to sacrifice his heart for Jebediah's? And is he really ready hand over what is rightfully his? All that he's been fighting for? He thinks not, guilt aside, Alyssa Gardner is his, and he is ready to go to the end of the earth for her, to win back what was once his as a child, to claim what's in his heart and embrace it. The fight is on, and if they think Morpheus played dirty last time, oh well, they ain't seen nothing yet, because he will not be easily defeated, he will not go down without a fight, and he is ready for the, madness.... Get ready, because it's all about to become.... UNHINGED... Yep, this was pretty epic!! I am now a die hard Morpheus fan, but I also have my fair share of love for Jeb too! Actually, I could say that by the end of this series it could really sway either way. Will have to see what happens next in the series for me to be for sure!! Overall, THE MOTH IN THE MIRROR was a wonderful addition to this EPICALLY fascinating series!! After reading SPLINTERED, and now this in between short story, my love runs deep for this series and these characters. Even the mindlessly insane ones, they're all so much fun and full of tons of insanity and madness that's filled my heart and made this series what it is!!!
