Mini Review--The Moth in the Mirror by A.G. Howard

An original ebook-only novella in the Splintered series, told from the points of view of both Jeb and Morpheus. Morpheus wants to know more about his rival for Alyssa's affections, so he digs into Jeb's memories of his time in Wonderland. But he may be surprised by what he finds.

This brand-new story and perspective from A.G. Howard's dark, magical world stands alone, but also provides a tantalizing glimpse of what's to come in Unhinged, the sequel to Splintered.

I made the impromptu decision to read A.G. Howard's The Moth in the Mirror before moving onto Unhinged and it was quite delightful! A very quick read too. This one basically gives us both Morpheus and Jeb's points of view during moments of Splintered.

Truthfully, it's a bit of both. For Morpheus is seeing Jeb's memories from his time in Wonderland to get a better understanding of the guy Alyssa chose over him, it's a whole: know thy enemy kind of thing. We basically get to see what Jeb was doing every time he and Alyssa were separated in Wonderland. 

Moments like when he was in his own cell in Morpheus' place, or what he and Morpheus talked about when he was trapped in the chasm when Alyssa discovered she had wings. And naturally, his final moments when made the biggest decision of his life to save Alyssa.

It's definitely something to read AFTER Splintered and it sort of sets a precursor for Morpheus and what he plans to do next! It was a pretty interesting little read and getting to see how both Jeb and Morpheus feel about Alyssa was enjoyable as well.

Overall Rating 4.5/5 stars
