Splintered Book One

by A. G. Howard

What If Wonderland Were Real?

Alyssa has always hated the story of Alice In Wonderland, not because of its confounded whimsy and ridiculous fantasy, but because of Alice herself. The story of her great great great grandmother's adventures down a rabbit hole is more than just a fairytale; it is a curse to every female born after her.

All the women in Alyssa's family have been a little crazy; her own mother is in an institution for refusing to eat anything not served in a tea cup, and for having conversations with flowers and insects. But more worrying is that Alyssa is also able to hear the insects speak. So if she is to save her mother and break the curse on her family, she will have to venture down the rabbit hole.

Splintered returns to Wonderland, only not as you may have imagined it. A dangerous place, darker and more chaotic then anyone was ever led to believe. This twisted wonderland is Alyssa's only hope to break a family curse and save her mother from a torturous fate. A fanciful story that turns a much loved fairytale classic onto its head, creating something new, crazy and romantic.
