Mini Review: Untamed (Splintered #3.5) by: A.G. Howard

Release Date: December 15, 2015
from Amulet Books
Goodreads | Amazon

"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 Thoughts:

**spoilers for Splintered, Unhinged, and Ensnared ahead**

This was a fun little extra for fans of the Splintered series. I had already read Moth In The Mirror when it originally released and really enjoyed it. So with Untamed, I only read The Boy In The Web and Six Impossible Things. I wasn’t the biggest fan of The Boy In The Web. This one is told from Alison’s (Alyssa’s Mom) point of view and I just don’t love Alison. She has never been my favorite. This one also didn’t really give us anything new; we all kinda knew this already. It was a fun read but I was a bit meh on it. As for Six Impossible Things, this one was fun and was what I was looking for from Untamed. This story dove into six of Alyssa’s memories; three with Jeb and three with Morpheus. The Jeb ones were okay but I ADORED the Morpheus ones. If I’m being honest, those memories are what I was most looking for out of these novellas. I wanted to see some more Morpheus and Alyssa and I wanted a peek into their happily ever after. I will forever love Morpheus and I ate up every bit of his presence. So all in all, Untamed was a fun little trip back to Wonderland for fans of the series.

  1. Well, Wifey, I can't read this review because I haven't started this series yet -- though I do own every single book in this series because of you -- but I still want to leave you a comment so I'm going to wing it. This is the best review I've never read. One day I will agree with everything that you say here. I'm sure that you are spot-on about the characters/plot/pacing/writing/conclusion. And that last line? I bet it's amazing. Awesome job, lobster ;)
