After surviving a disastrous battle at prom, Alyssa has embraced her madness and gained perspective. She's determined to rescue her two worlds and the people and netherlings she loves. Even if it means challenging Queen Red to a final battle of wills and wiles... and even if the only way to Wonderland, now 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?
A.G. Howard is most at home
when weaving the melancholy and macabre into settings and scenes,
twisting the expected into the unexpected. She was inspired to write Splintered while working at a school library. She always wondered what
would’ve happened had the subtle creepiness of Alice’s Adventures in
Wonderland taken center stage, 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.
A.G.’s pastimes are reading, rollerblading, gardening, and family vacations which often include impromptu side trips to 18th century graveyards or condemned schoolhouses to appease her overactive muse.
Her debut YA fantasy, Splintered, a dark Alice in Wonderland spinoff, is now available from Amulet Books.
