What did you think of the book?

“I’m starting with the man in the mirror!
I’m askin’ him to chaaange his ways
No message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and make a… CHANGE!”

Man In The Mirror by Michael Jackson

Oh yeah, baby. You know you wanna rock out to a little MJ while reading this book. Certainly wanna burst into song seeing the title. XD I know I did (and still do!) XD

The Moth In The Mirror is an insert novella taking place between Books 1 and 2 of the Splintered series by the lovely A.G.Howard. It follows Morpheus – our favourite, unpredictable Netherling – as he shifts through the lost memories of a certain human knight (Jeb) and re-evaluates his plan to win over Alyssa and get rid of the competition. As the title and the song suggests – our moth must look at himself and decide to either make the necessary changes to tilt the scales in his favour or continue on his current path with a gaping hole in his chest that only Alyssa can fill.

As far as the story goes, readers will definitely need to read the books in order, if they want to understand and fully grasp the implications and motivations of the characters in this novella, and all the books to follow.

Cover is GORGEOUS. But then again, so are ALL of the covers in this series. I mean, have you seen them?

Splintered Series Final covers

But back to my review. What I loved most about this read was how obviously the events in it effect and change Morpheus in Unhinged (book 2 of the series) and how Morpheus worked to incorporate himself into Alyssa’s (and Jeb’s lol) world.

I feel for him, man. I am laying down every card and praying to every deity and cosmic power out there that Alyssa chooses and ends up with him. There is something about his character that is so compelling and genuine even in its twisted, manipulative Netherling way that matches so perfectly with Alyssa… If she would only open her eyes to see.

P.S. – (SPOILER) And from what I’m gathering of the final book’s title “Ensnared,” my prayers may just be answered. Maybe.

Would you recommend this book?

Oh, most definitely. I mean… it’s likely my #1 re-read of the year!

4 of 5 Stars

What did you think of the book?

This was a surprisingly fun read for me! It’s been awhile since I’ve read middle grade books, and this one definitely brought back fond memories. The characters were memorable and the storytelling superb! Anni will definitely be having more adventures, and the potential for engaging and exciting sequels is definitely there. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for her in the future. :3

What did you think of the book?

HOLY BUCKETS, THIS STORY IS FANTASTIC. THE CHARACTERS ARE FANTASTIC. THE BACKSTORY IS REALLY, REALLY INTRIGUING. (And I even hear there will be M-Preg later, which will be FANTASTIC as long as they make it believable and probable and not just “Hey! Let’s Use Magic! … OUT OF NOWHERE!”)

ASDFGHJMKL:LKJHGFDS WHERE IS THE NEXT BOOK?! I NEED IT.  

*MAKES GRABBY HANDS*

There is SO much working for this book, and subsequent series. If the following books continue in this vein, then we’ll all be in good shape.  

Because honestly? I think I found me a new series to get hooked on. This here was *amazing*! There were a couple hiccups here and there in the storytelling, but overall? Sooooo good! I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book! (P.S. – *Damn* kid! You are having one HELL of a shitty ass day. D: You need a vacation. You and Ushna both!)

Would you recommend this book?

Most definitely! Although, I would recommend anyone who wants to try reading it now to wait until next year when the next revised edition of the second book comes out. You wouldn’t want to be left on the cliffhanger this book leaves you on. xD; That I can promise you.
