Summary

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.

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?

Booklist Review

In the final book in Howard's Alice in Wonderland-expanded series, Alyssa is returning to AnyElsewhere with her father to rescue Jeb and Morpheus. Then they will return to Wonderland to rescue her mother and rid that deteriorating kingdom of Red's destructive reign. But to do this, Alyssa must marry Morpheus and bear his son, thus breaking Jeb's heart. It's a Hobson's choice, made more difficult by the men's manipulations and gallantry. While it's hard to overlook Howard's references and allusions to mental illness, ultimately this is a fairy tale in which good triumphs to ensnare that long-sought, if improbable, happy ending.--Bradburn, Frances Copyright 2015 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

Gr 9 Up-Alyssa may have survived the epic battle at end of Unhinged (Abrams, 2014), but things are still looking grim. Her mom is trapped in Wonderland while both of her love interests, human Jeb and magical Morpheus, are stuck in AnyElsewhere, a horrifying in-between world full of outcasts and mutants. Accompanied by her father, Alyssa must prepare to do final battle with the Red Queen while rescuing her loves. But when it turns out that Jeb and Morpheus have their own agendas, Alyssa is heartbroken by each in turn, leaving her unhinged as she enters the final ordeal. Though the story is convoluted and the writing overblown, this series has gained traction among teens. Fans are highly invested in the Morpheus-Alyssa-Jeb love triangle, and most should be happy with how Howard resolves the series. Librarians feeding a strong interest in goth-fantasy-romances may wish to take a second look at the trilogy. Otherwise, this conclusion is recommended only where the first books were popular.-Eliza Langhans, Hatfield Public Library, MA (c) Copyright 2015.
