In this New York Times bestselling sequel toDorothy Must Die, who is good—and who is actually Wicked? The Wicked Will Rise is perfect for fans of richly reimagined fairy tales and classic tales like Marissa Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles and Gregory Maguire’s Wicked.
My name is Amy Gumm—and I’m the other girl from Kansas. After a tornado swept through my trailer park, I ended up in Oz. But it wasn’t like the Oz I knew from books and movies. Dorothy had returned, but she was now a ruthless dictator. Glinda could no longer be called the Good Witch. And the Wicked Witches who were left? They’d joined forces as the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked, and they wanted to recruit me.
My mission? Kill Dorothy. Except my job as assassin didn’t work out as planned. Dorothy is still alive. The Order has vanished. And the home I couldn’t wait to leave behind might be in danger.
Somehow, across a twisted and divided land, I have to find the Order, protect the true ruler of Oz, take Dorothy and her henchmen down—and try to figure out what I’m really doing here. (From: Goodreads)
*!!!3 Out Of 5 Stars!!!*
I like it. It gives me a feeling of reading fairytales. However, I wasn’t as enjoyable as reading the first series.
Amy wanted to find Nox. She kept wanting to find Nox.
Amy was desperate for special attention…so,
So I kissed him. Because why not?
Yes. She kissed Pete who was inside Ozma…uh…It’s really hard for me to describe.
Okay, so what did he say?
“Listen. I get you. You’re trouble. If I were into girls, I’d be so into you. But I’m not. Even girls as awesome as you.”
Yeah, sure. No way that Amy was gonna like two guy at the same time.
Good thing was that she did find Nox on the Island of Lost Things.
“I figured it only had to be a matter of time, but damn, you sure know how to keep a guy waiting.”
Very funny Nox. But nope. Dear Danielle, you sure know how to keep ME waiting, for Amy to find Nox, for her to finally shut up her brain thinking about him.
Other parts of the story are doing cool adventures and killings. Totally fine with me.
Happy Reading, guys ~ 😀
