A Lion Among Men: Volume Three in The Wicked Years

Not yet rated | write a review

In the third volume of Gregory Maguire''s acclaimed series, the Wicked Years, we return to Oz, seen now through the eyes of the Cowardly Lion.

While civil war looms in Oz, Brrr-the Cowardly Lion-surrenders the story of his life to a tetchy oracle named Yackle. Abandoned as a cub, Brrr''s path from infancy in the Great Gillikan Forest is no Yellow Brick Road. Seeking to redress an early mistake, he trudges through a swamp of ghosts, becomes implicated in a massacre of trolls, falls in love with a forbidding Cat princess, and avoids a jail sentence by agreeing to serve as a lackey to the war-mongering Emperor of Oz.

A portrait of a would-be survivor and a panoramic glimpse of a world gone shrill with war fever, Gregory Maguire''s A Lion Among Men is written with the sympathy and power that have made his books contemporary classics.

Editorial Reviews

"So well-crafted that readers of all ages could enjoy witnessing Brrrr''s transformation from an insecure kitten in the woods to a compassionate, engaged ''manimal.''" (Christian Science Monitor)
