I'm going to do my very best to give you a good review of Unhinged by A.G. Howard without including any spoilers of either this book or the first in the series Splintered. Because I don't want to ruin that one for you if you haven't read it. And if you haven't read it, well just go do that right now.

Why I read it: Splintered was one of my top three reads last year. I was completely satisfied with everything in that book from character growth to love triangle resolution to steamy steamy steamy kisses. So of course I had to read this one.
ZOMG Yes! This is going to be the most vague description ever, but I'm okay with that. I really don't want to spoil Splintered for you. I find myself, once again, amazed by this author. This story was beautiful from the writing to the plot to the characters. A.G. Howard brought new depth to the relationships in this story and created new growth arcs. And, of course, she brought back my favorite: Morpheus.
I think my favorite piece of this second book was how she continued to develop his character and show that, while he is selfish and manipulative, there's more to him than that. I'll just leave it at that.
Also--all the things I loved about the first book, especially where the love triangle is concerned? Pretty sure A.G. Howard read my review, laughed maniacally, and decided she wanted to torture me. I mean this in the best way possible.
Also, also--even if you haven't read any Lewis Carroll (like me), that's okay. She does a great job making you feel like you know enough of those stories to get this one.
MOAR PLZ Guys. I finished the last book and thought, "I'm okay with this. I don't need more from this series if there isn't more. But if there is, well obvs." But this time? I need the third book immediately. I'm going to go cry in a corner and worry and fret until that day comes.
A.G. Howard gets ALL THE CHIWEENIES!
