The stunning conclusion to the smashNew York Timesbestselling series the Wicked Years

Hailed as "bewitching," "remarkable," "extraordinary," "engrossing," "amazing," and "delicious," Gregory Maguire's Wicked Years series-a sophisticated fantasy cycle inspired by the classic children's novelThe Wizard of Oz-became national bestsellers and the basis for a hit Tony-winning Broadway musical. Now, Maguire returns with the final installment in his transformative work, a thrilling and compulsively readable saga in which the fate of Oz is decided at last. . . .

Once peaceful and prosperous, the spectacular Land of Oz is knotted with social unrest: The Emerald City is mounting an invasion of Munchkinland, Glinda is under house arrest, and the Cowardly Lion is on the run from the law. And look who's knocking at the door. It's none other than Dorothy. Yes.ThatDorothy.

Yet amidst all this chaos, Elphaba's granddaughter, the tiny green baby born at the close ofSon of a Witch, has come of age. Now it is up to Rain to take up her broom-and her legacy-in an Oz wracked by war.

The stirring, long-awaited conclusion to the bestselling series begun withWicked,Out of Ozis a magical journey rife with revelations and reversals, reprisals and surprises-the hallmarks of the unique imagination of Gregory Maguire.
