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. Even if it means challenging Queen Red to a final battle of wills and wiles ...and even if the only way to Wonderland, now that the rabbit hole is closed, is through the looking-glass world--a parallel dimension filled with mutated and violent netherling outcasts. In the final installment of the wildly popular Splintered trilogy, Alyssa and her dad journey into the heart of magic and mayhem in search of her mom and to set right all that's gone wrong. 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?

I  made a mini review on my Goodreads profile, stating more or less this:

I couldn't get into this book. I just couldn't. It is crazy, not like the others, where craziness was useful to the story, but bat-shit crazy with no purpose. I got boooooored with the love triangle. It appears almost every three pages and it feels like it drags into forever. The solution to this one is just... not going there as not to make spoilers, but I found it to be easy and non compromising.
I tried to get into the book time and time again only to found out I just couldn't. It was a bizarre book with no other purpose in its bizarre-ness (is that even a word?), and with a week love triangle with an easy solution which was a no brainer: [SPOILER] Let's keep both, momma! [SPOILER OVER]
I just loved the first one, wasn't sure about the second one but I still enjoyed it, but this one... destroyed the trilogy for me.
Sorry, I don't want to offend anyone. Maybe it wasn't the moment to read this one or maybe this one is just bat-shit crazy... :s

If you want to see a longer one were I talk about the three books on the series, please head over to my youtube video about it 

Thank you!!! ^.^
