I didn’t ask for any of this. I didn’t ask to be some kind of hero.
But when your whole life gets swept up by a tornado—taking you with it—you have no choice but to go along, you know?
Sure, I’ve read the books. I’ve seen the movies. I know the song about the rainbow and the happy little blue birds. But I never expected Oz to look like this. To be a place where Good Witches can’t be trusted, Wicked Witches may just be the good guys, and winged monkeys can be executed for acts of rebellion. There’s still the yellow brick road, though—but even that’s crumbling.
Dorothy. They say she found a way to come back to Oz. They say she seized power and the power went to her head. And now no one is safe.
My name is Amy Gumm—and I’m the other girl from Kansas.
I’ve been recruited by the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked.
I’ve been trained to fight.
And I have a mission:
Remove the Tin Woodman’s heart.
Steal the Scarecrow’s brain.
Take the Lion’s courage.
Then and only then—Dorothy must die!
On April 1, 2014 we’ll get to see the aftermath of Dorothy’s trip to Oz. I’m in love with all things Wizard of Oz, I must have read the original at least three times, and now a perfect and different Young Adult spin-off has made it into the world!
The cover, first of all, is amazing. The premise is super interesting. How can you not want to know how Dorothy became corrupted?! The first three chapters were available on EpicReads, but I didn’t want to spoil anything for myself before I’m able to read the whole thing!
Everything about this book screams perfection, and I can’t wait until it comes out!
