I am super duper excited to present to you the cover of A. G. Howard's final Splintered mini-novel...Untamed!
1. It's white! Actually, I'm going with the whole bride-theme thing happening here, because if you read Ensnared, well, yeah. But the white...it's a lot less unsettling (by unsettling, I mean vivid) than the other covers. Peaceful.
2. There's a split...One half of Alyssa's face is normal, the other is netherling. Appropriate, seeing as she's caught between both the human and netherling world!
3. Eye marks! We first got a glimpse of what Morpheus' eye marks looked like on the cover of Unhinged, and it was explained in Splintered that Alyssa's were the female version of them. Well, it's nice to be able to put an image to the picture now!
4. The purple and red. The two main colors working here apart from the white are purple and red. Purple...for all of those who have read Ensnared, you know probably what purple means...Purple magic... On the other hand, we have a very pretty contrast of the red flowers and purple flowers. Plus a purple moth (Morpheus?) and a red Ace of Hearts card.
There's more I'd like to say, but they all get a little in the spoiler realm, so I'll just keep them to myself until you've all read them! To read my review on Ensnared, go here.
Untamed is a collection of 3 short stories, including the Moth in the Mirror (which was previously released only as an ebook), The Boy in the Web (is that about Jeb? Thomas?), and an additional extended epilogue from Ensnared!
And here's what the completed series looks like...
Yay! I can't wait! Untamed comes out sometime in January, 2016 (why is it so far away???), so until then, we can sit in burning agony and try not to lose our heads too much :)
Official blurb, courtesy of Goodreads->http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/25105196-untamed
A post-Ensnared collection of three stories—available in both print and e-versions.
The headlining short story, Six Impossible Things, takes readers into Alyssa’s future, via new and deleted scenes, to offer a deeper understanding of the decisions made at the close of Ensnared. It’s an extended, detailed version of the epilogue and beyond. Two bonus stories, The Moth in the Mirror and The Boy in the Web, delve into the past.
Together, this collection provides a “director’s cut” glimpse into the past and futures of our favorite Splintered characters.
