Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice continuation I enjoyed the first book; so it was nice to have a second installment and thus second look into this particular vision of Baum's world of OZ. Again very dark and political and definitely not a child's fairytale. As with the first there is murder, intrigue, politics, sex, you name it and it's probably in this series of books... but in a way that makes this world utterly readable
