Blog Tour- UNTAMED by A.G. Howard A Look Back at The Series and 2Giveaways!


I am so excited to be kicking off the  Official UNTAMED blog tour! I am freaking OBSESSED with this series, I mean seriously there are no words for how much I love it (and Jeb *swoons*). I have a special look back at the settings of the books and make sure to enter both giveaways! 

Haven't heard of UNTAMED? Check it out!

Title: UNTAMED
Author: A.G. Howard
Release Date: December 15, 2015
Hardcover: 288 pages
Publisher: Amulet Books
Formats: Hardcover, paperback, eBook, & audiobook
Find it: Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | iBooks
A post-Ensnared collection of three stories—available in both print and e-versions.

Alyssa Gardner went down the rabbit hole and took control of her destiny. She survived the battle for Wonderland and the battle for her heart. In this collection of three novellas, join Alyssa and her family as they look back at their memories of Wonderland.

In Six Impossible Things, Alyssa recalls the most precious moments of her life after Ensnared, and the role magic plays in preserving the happiness of those she loves. Alyssa’s mother reminisces about her own time in Wonderland and rescuing the man who would become her husband in The Boy in the Web. And Morpheus delves into Jeb’s memories of the events of Splintered in The Moth in the Mirror, available in print for the first time.

This collection expands upon Ensnared's epilogue, and includes some deleted scenes to provide a “director’s cut” glimpse into the past and futures of our favorite Splintered characters. 

Now on to the guest post!


Thanks for joining us for the Untamed virtual book tour!

Since Untamed is a companion novel that not only looks into the future of the Splintered Series, but also into the past, we thought it would be fun to dedicate the posts to looking back at the first three books, then looking forward at some Official Untamed reveals.

To make it even more fun, the two “looking back” posts (Nov. 16-17) will be setup scavenger-hunt style, with links for you to follow and questions for you to answer in order to be entered for the prizes in the INTL rafflecopters provided.

Today, we’ll start off with a look back at three settings that were touched on from the very first book, Splintered, but that also will be making appearances in the upcoming companion novel.  

These posts were originally taken from the Splintered virtual book tour, back in December 2012. Click on the links then scroll down and read the posts to find answers for the questions provided. Then come back and use these answers to unlock the INTL rafflecopter.

Stop #1: Mr. Dodo's cave
Question:
In Mr. Dodo's house, what's hanging from his ceiling?

Question:
In Wonderland's historic library, what does the librarian look like?

Stop #3: The Red Castle
Question:
In the Red Castle, what 4 shapes are the brass fixtures on the door?

And look below for today's INTL prize pack:



 Be sure to join us again tomorrow at Fiktshun’s for a look back at our favorite main characters and more INTL prizes to win!

**Also, for domestic-only readers, don’t forget to enter the Abram’s rafflecopter for 10 Untamed hardbacks and 5 Untamed posters, provided each day at each stop!**



About A.G. Howard
A.G. Howard was inspired to write SPLINTERED while working at a school library. She always wondered what would've happened had the subtle creepiness of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland taken center stage, and she hopes her darker and funkier tribute to Carroll will inspire readers to seek out the stories that won her heart as a child.


When she's not writing, A.G.'s pastimes are reading, rollerblading, gardening, and family vacations which often include impromptu side trips to 18th century graveyards or condemned schoolhouses to appease her overactive muse.






Giveaway Details:
10 winners will receive a hardcover of UNTAMED, US Only.

5 winners will receive an UNTAMED poster, US Only.

4 additional giveaways will be taking place through the tour so make sure to check each blog for their giveaway items and details!

Splintered
AG Howard
Release Date: January 1, 2013
Hardcover: 384 pages
Publisher: Amulet Books (Abrams)
Find it: Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | iBooks

This stunning debut captures the grotesque madness of a mystical under-land, as well as a girl’s pangs of first love and independence. Alyssa Gardner hears the whispers of bugs and flowers—precisely the affliction that landed her mother in a mental hospital years before. This family curse stretches back to her ancestor Alice Liddell, the real-life inspiration for Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Alyssa might be crazy, but she manages to keep it together. For now.

When her mother’s mental health takes a turn for the worse, Alyssa learns that what she thought was fiction is based in terrifying reality. The real Wonderland is a place far darker and more twisted than Lewis Carroll ever let on. There, Alyssa must pass a series of tests, including draining an ocean of Alice’s tears, waking the slumbering tea party, and subduing a vicious bandersnatch, to fix Alice’s mistakes and save her family. She must also decide whom to trust: Jeb, her gorgeous best friend and secret crush, or the sexy but suspicious Morpheus, her guide through Wonderland, who may have dark motives of his own.
