    The Moth in the Mirror is a novella which takes place between Splintered and Unhinged . Morpheus does not understand what Alyssa sees in the mortal, Jebediah, but he wants to better understand his rival for Alyssa's affections. He examines Jeb's lost memories of his time spent in Wonderland, but he may find out more than he's bargained for. This novella is the perfect hold over while waiting for Unhinged ! Brace yourself for this peek into Morpheus and Jeb's minds. My only wish is that that The Moth in the Mirror is a novella which takes place between Splintered and Unhinged . Morpheus does not understand what Alyssa sees in the mortal, Jebediah, but he wants to better understand his rival for Alyssa's affections. He examines Jeb's lost memories of his time spent in Wonderland, but he may find out more than he's bargained for. This novella is the perfect hold over while waiting for Unhinged ! Brace yourself for this peek into Morpheus and Jeb's minds. My only wish is that that it was longer, with a little bit more of Morpheus. Jeb is cool and all, but Morpheus is definitely where its at.

Nor was it a game. It was war. And, as on any other battlefield, compassion and mercy had no place there.” Too much of Jeb for a novel named THE MOTH in the Mirror. What I got : - Morpheus isn’t just a winged humanoid something, he’s a fairy (I called him that in my review for the first book, but I found this fact in the bonus). - And not just mere fairy — a solitary one: selfish and fickle. He can’t feel true love for anyone but now he fell for Alyssa. - Morpheus can rave and storm. Literally. With lightning! - Jeb is possessive and draggy (this is not a new fact but nota bene!) - Jeb tortured a little sprite with an iron bracelet for information about Morpheus. Little sprite, dammit! - Morpheus is awesome in both roles: flirty winker and cunning threat-maker. - Jeb prefers Alyssa over his own family (mental health of Alyssa’s mother is more important thing than mother and sister of Jeb, it doesn’t matter that they wouldn’t be able to keep their heads above the water if he would die, ‘cause Jeb was their main source of money). - Jeb’s moves and acts (especially sacrificial-ones) are hilariously stupid, because vide supra. - Morpheus tested human emotions and enjoyed it, because vide infra. - Morpheus wants Alyssa to be happy, but not going to give her to Jeb without fight. - Morpheus is up for something. I just can’t get over the fact that 20% of this bonus were for Morpheus and the rest 80% for Jeb. Where’s justice in this world?

He fell to the bed on his back, hands held above his face, staring in disbelief at the raw and bloody stumps where his fingers once were. What I continue loving in this series is the horror element to it. Priceless! P.S. I still cannot believe I'm enjoying a YA series so much!

    This book has both Morpheus's and Jeb's POVs, but most of the novella is told from Jeb's perspective, giving us his take of certain events that happened in Splintered. Mercifully, the narration was done in 3rd person. I don't think I would be able to tolerate being in Jeb's head otherwise. He is not a bad guy at all, but I just don't get him.

At first he wants to leave for London to study there and has a girlfriend, and the next moment he is all overprotective and obsessed with Alyssa. His fascination with Alyssa seems forced to me. And the mind-boggling decision Jeb made in the end of Splintered made me exasperated all over again. Seeing things from his perspective didn't make me understand him any more than I did the first time.

Considering this novella promised to be exactly about the two things I liked the least about the novel, I was understandably apprehensive about reading it. I didn't doubt the novella would be a good read, - I trust in Howard's skills and her vision of this world way too much to doubt that I would enjoy it -, but, to say I bluntly, I was not that excited about being in the head of a character I don't exactly like. In the end, I did enjoy it. The world is still creepy and mesmerizing, and Morpheus is still the compelling and complex character I loved from the first one. I was surprised at how much I didn't detest Jeb. He's not a terrible guy in Splintered, but his behavior irritated me. With this novella, I can't say that I like him much or that I complete excuse how possessive and controlling he was with Alyssa, but I think I understand him better and now I can see where his love for Alyssa comes from. He's suddenly a lot more layered to me than he was in Splintered, where he just fulfilled the super-hot, tortured-artist love interest requirement for me. This novella doesn't add all that much to the first novel. It does provide some background info and a new perspective to some of the events in the novel, but the main point behind the story is to build a bridge between both novels based on the resolution Morpheus makes at the end of the novella. This is a very light but still enjoyable read that I recommend for the fans of Splintered that can't wait to get their hands on Unhinged.

    I feel like this novella only exists as fan service. The pages are pretty much filled with both guys gushing and swooning over Alyssa. News flash: ALYSSA ISN'T THAT GREAT. AT ALL.

    So this is just a little insight on Jebs point of view of things when he is going through them, which is quite nice seeing how he felt in those important moments that happens in the book. Also we see Morpheus, POV on how strong his feelings are for Alyssa that he will just not stop until she is with him !! Total love anything that has to do with Alyssa and Morpheus so I give 5 stars ;)

    A.G. Howard has a great gift for prose, crafting worlds, and honoring literary traditions. The only blemish in her Splintered series is that, for reasons I don't understand, the books want us to love Jeb, the main character's obnoxious human boyfriend, and mistrust/dislike Morpheus, the lovably deranged fae creature who not only wants our heroine's heart, but wants her to reach her full and impressive potential.

This novella takes place right after the first book of the trilogy. It finds Morpheus mystified (as are most readers) by the hold Jeb has on Alyssa. To better understand, the Netherling kingmaker journeys into the mind of the mortal boy and literally sees through his eyes. On the one hand, this is just the sort of thing Morpheus would do, and he is such a fantastic character that it's a pleasure to spend more time with him. On the other hand, the POV character for most of this story is JEB. And it reveals nothing about Jeb that the reader didn't already know. He likes art. He has a girlfriend who is ostensibly much cooler than Alyssa, but he prefers Alyssa in his heart for some reason. His father was a physically abusive alcoholic, which is legitimately sad, but Alyssa should not be treated like a prize for Jeb because of all he went through. They are not romantically suited at all. I never even bought their friendship. Jeb also has no particular insights on anything that happened in the book. The one reason I'm glad I read this is because Morpheus has an Insurrection Hat. I remembered liking his Hospitality Hat, but an Insurrection Hat is just next-level millinery. Content Advisory: Jeb's daydreams involve scantily-clad girls, among them Alyssa and his actual girlfriend, Taelor. A character has to use their own blood for paint in order to unlock a magical object.

    This is one of the novellas that don't complete the story. It shows Morpheus viewing Jeb's memorys and thus giving us a more detailed version of what Jeb has endured during the 1st book, when he wasn't with Alyssa. So you don't have to read it in order to understand some of the characters or for the story to make more sence.

    So, I'll be honest and say I went into this blind.

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. First off, I just love this cover. Although, I after reading, I did think to myself that perhaps it could have had more elements of the story to it. But simple is fine and it certainly matches the theme of book #1, and #2. I'm not sure if perhaps including a character or even a mirror on the front would have given too much away. Alas, it not my favorite cover of this series, but that really didn't matter once I opened it and read what was inside. I can't really talk about much without giving away what the story is about. I love that you get to know just a bit more about Morpheus's mind in this story. He's an illusive one to figure out for sure, even after reading this (although I have a better grasp on his motives as I read through the second book). Jeb, well, I just love Jeb, I'm a huge fan. So to see some things from his eyes was incredible. He remains loyal to a fault and just all around swoony. And I love how Howard goes about showing Morpheus the memories through Jeb's eyes, and yet we're also seeing it from Morpheus' perspective. You not only find out what motivated Jeb to do the things he did while they were in Wonderland, but also find out how this tilts Morpheus's perspective towards the couple (and also gives him leverage to get what he wants...I won't go further there). All in all this was an absolutely fabulous novella. It was a very quick read and I'm glad I jumped in while in the middle of reading book #2 (although there's no reason to wait, go get your Morpheus and Jeb fix NOW, you won't regret it!). I can't wait to see if Howard decides to do another novella after Unhinged. This is definitely a wet your lips and leave you hungry for more story! Great job!

    4.5 Stars I Loved, LOVED, LOVEDDDDD this short story!!! Being inside Jeb's mind, seeing his side of what happened, what he went through while separated from Alyssa, and what was going through his head as he traveled through Wonderland was just amazing!! And Morpheus, ooh, he's so deliciously sexy as he's strategizing, and conniving, and manipulative, and so dam enticing!! And if you put'em all together, HOT dam you've got one dangerously seductive, bombshell of a "Son of a bug" as Jeb would say 4.5 Stars I Loved, LOVED, LOVEDDDDD this short story!!! Being inside Jeb's mind, seeing his side of what happened, what he went through while separated from Alyssa, and what was going through his head as he traveled through Wonderland was just amazing!! And Morpheus, ooh, he's so deliciously sexy as he's strategizing, and conniving, and manipulative, and so dam enticing!! And if you put'em all together, HOT dam you've got one dangerously seductive, bombshell of a "Son of a bug" as Jeb would say it! ;) First, I have to give due where due deserves, Jeb is AWESOME!! I absolutely love him!! Now, do I love him more then Morpheus, probably not, but I do love him nevertheless!! Jeb was all kinds of sexy in his insane, loving, over protective, take charge and not ready to settle for anything short of saving the light in his life, Alyssa Gardner... And Morpheus, holy smokes, let me tell you, he is overfilling!! He filled me with all kinds of emotions, and had me drowning—trying to climb out and claim control. A.G. Howard really outdid herself with his character. I LOVED everything about him!! Granted, some may say he doesn't have some of the best qualities, but I beg to differ! He had all the ones that really mattered, plus, throw in a few others that builds his amazing character, and WOW, you have an EPIC, unforgettable, totally addicting, love interest that is sure to get you hot and bothered! ;) THE PLOT Morpheus is distraught over losing the only thing he's ever loved and really cared for, Alyssa Gardner, and vows to win her back, one way or another! So he goes to the Carpet beetle, keeper of memories, in search of hope, in search of the only thing to give him the upper hand in all this, Jebediah's memories, and in there, Jebediah's weakness... But as Morpheus replays Jebediah's every thought—his every feeling while in Wonderland, his every fear, his every pain that has intangled and embedded itself into Jebediah's heart, Morpheus starts to understand this Mortal more then he ever wanted too. He starts to relate in ways that shouldn't be, and then guilt starts to leak in, bleed itself within. But is Morpheus really ready to sacrifice his heart for Jebediah's? And is he really ready hand over what is rightfully his? All that he's been fighting for? He thinks not, guilt aside, Alyssa Gardner is his, and he is ready to go to the end of the earth for her, to win back what was once his as a child, to claim what's in his heart and embrace it. The fight is on, and if they think Morpheus played dirty last time, oh well, they ain't seen nothing yet, because he will not be easily defeated, he will not go down without a fight, and he is ready for the, madness.... Get ready, because it's all about to become.... UNHINGED... Yep, this was pretty epic!! I am now a die hard Morpheus fan, but I also have my fair share of love for Jeb too! Actually, I could say that by the end of this series it could really sway either way. Will have to see what happens next in the series for me to be for sure!! Overall, THE MOTH IN THE MIRROR was a wonderful addition to this EPICALLY fascinating series!! After reading SPLINTERED, and now this in between short story, my love runs deep for this series and these characters. Even the mindlessly insane ones, they're all so much fun and full of tons of insanity and madness that's filled my heart and made this series what it is!!!

Unmasking the events during Alyssa and Jeb's separation has all the class of A.G Howard's first novel whilst throwing you back into the tangled web that is full of curious characters and unyielding passion. Is it a necessary read..well no. But if you are like me and was etching for any new snippet of this world as you await the release of Unhinged then you might want to purchase this one. (view spoiler)[ This wasn't a novella that had massive revelations, which is why I don't think it is absolutely necessary to read before starting Unhinged..but don't hold me to it as I have not yet read the second book in this series. The one thing that stood out for me however was that Gossamer ended up helping Jeb save Alyssa...so yeah. That happened. I always pictured her with a similar personality to Tink from Peter Pan, you know how she was in love with Peter but so jealous of Wendy. That's just how she came across in Splintered. Turns out that little fairy has a heart and will for what is right. I guess Morpheus pissed her off. Another was something only briefly mentioned, like in a line, which was how Morpheus could wait until Jeb passed away. That Alyssa wouldn't age. This must just be if she remains in Wonderland..right? Or maybe not. Since her ancestors died before nature could take its course..interesting. She must still age though. We get to see Jeb's love for Alyssa that is unyielding, he is so far down that rabbit whole called love that nothing will alter his feelings about that girl. Lets hope at least. And of course we have Morpheus who even after diving into Jeb's memories to try and figure out his weaknesses so that he can take Alyssa away from Jeb is still conniving. Which makes for a really great character, just not a boyfriend. My opinion of him hasn't changed, and I am glad that he admits that he want's to bring out her Wonderland side..which I thought so from the beginning. Because that is the side that he is most attracted to, so he'll try and squander her need to be human. Morpheus actually ended up being sort of funny, so I hope we get to see more of that side in Unhinged. AND witty banter between the two boys that hold a place in Alyssa's heart. Nothing better than a humorous fight for affection. (hide spoiler)]

    No. Nope. Nada. There is absolutely no difference in my opinion of Jeb. I already know that he loves Alyssa, a lot. And I admire him for his sacrifice. That whole painting white roses red deal was so bittersweet. But it comes off as a plot device for us to like him (more). Incidentally, when he sacrificed himself to save Ivory Queen and consequentially Alyssa, he said that she's his best friend. Well that, and that he loves her... but really, don't we love our best friends? And that's just how t No. Nope. Nada. There is absolutely no difference in my opinion of Jeb.

Well that, and that he loves her... but really, don't we love our best friends? And that's just how they seem to me: friends that are as close as family, but are being pushed together solely because Morpheus represents the "bad-netherling-side". Even now that I've read this insightful little novella he's a less developed character than Morpheus, even less than Alyssa's mum (I admit, that's because I'm half through Unhinged . But still). As was nicely said about Jeb: "You're not a very fun date." Alas, not by Alyssa. And as much of a good guy Jeb turns out to be, I am a sucker for fun (and madness). And so, this love triangle is but a pitiful attempt. Both, the chauvinist and the boy who cried wolf, are too competitive for us to truly see and appreciate their feelings. It's such a shame since the world, the Wonderland A. G. Howard has created is so beautifully crafted and some of the beings from Wonderland are very interesting. It's a shame that the characters, and even the plot as a result, worsen it so much. Ta.

    Brittain *Needs a Nap and a Drink*

    I love this little interlude between book 1 and 2 in the Splintered series. That being said, I wish there was more Morpheus in it. I was expecting to get into his mind and that just didn't happen. The characters that are twisted and tap dance that line between good and evil are so much more fascinating to me than the Prince Charmings. They have more depth and have reasons to be who they are and I want to get into the psychology of Morpheus in all of this. Onto Unhinged!

    Seeing Double in Neverland

    I love Morpheus but with that being said this book is about Morpheus watching Jeb's memories. It was interesting to get Jeb's point of view of his time in wonderland. There was his time with the Sprites, After Alissa flew with him and had to leave him cause she couldn't take him any farther and before he makes his decision to rescue Alyssa and then it ends with Morpheus take. A must Read!

    I liked the idea of getting to see some of Jeb's POV from the first book, while getting new scenes with Morpheus. Unfortunately, most of Jeb's scenes were him finding things out we already knew, with little insight into anything else. I did like the scenes with Morpheus, though. I have high hopes that he'll live up to his potential in the next book.

    I only gave this 2 stars because of the parts about morpheus. But the rest mostly is about Jeb. I just can't stand the guy, not after I finished the series. I really wish he wasn't in the book in first place.

    This was alright. I wasn't the biggest fan of Splintered, but because I'm weird, I have this sick urge to push myself through the series. I'm curious to see if it gets better and I guess see the eventual end. This novella is an added extra that doesn't necessarily need to be read in order to understand the events in the series. It's just an extra that lets the reader experience certain events from Splintered in Jeb's POV. I'm just kind of ehh on the whole novella. I guess it was nice getting to ex This was alright.

I guess it was nice getting to experience some scenes that were absent from Splintered. And I guess it was fun getting a little of Jeb's thoughts while he was in Wonderland. I'm a bigger fan of Jeb than I am of Morpheus. Morpheus so far has been kind of creepy, a liar, and a jerk. That's further solidified in this novella, with how he delves into Jeb's memories in order to find a way to take him down. I think one of my issues with this series so far is that Wonderland is too weird. And this novella had that same weirdness. Now I'm not against strange, different worlds, but I think there needs to be a balance. Not everyone we meet or everything we see has to be strange. I just feel like the author constantly tries to one-up herself on how strange she can make it. I'm just not the biggest fan of that. So in conclusion, this novella was just okay for me. I don't think you need to read it in order to enjoy the series. It was good to hear from Jeb, but questionable as to why we were even viewing his memories. I'm not a Morpheus fan so far, I hope he crashes and burns on his deceitful actions to win Alyssa's heart and his plans to get her to Wonderland for good. BOOKCITEMENT LEVEL 3/5 A little unnecessary extra and Morpheus is a jerk.

  30. 4 out of 5

    Jessica (a GREAT read)

    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 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.

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
