about

In this dark, action-packed fourth book in the New York Times bestselling Dorothy Must Die series, Amy Gumm travels from Oz to the twisted land of Ev, where she fights to free Oz from evil once and for all.

My name is Amy Gumm. You might remember me as the other girl from Kansas. When a tornado swept me away to the magical land of Oz, I was given a mission: Dorothy must die. That’s right, everyone’s favorite Wicked-Witch-slayer had let the magic of Oz corrupt her. She turned evil. So I killed her.

But just when we thought it was safe to start rebuilding the damaged land of Oz, we were betrayed. Now I’m following the Road of Yellow Brick as it helps me escape toward the mysterious land of Ev, where the Nome King rules a bleak and angry world. And what I’m about to find is shocking: My original mission may not have been successful.

I thought my job was over, but it’s only just beginning. And it’s up to me to foil Dorothy’s plans for revenge—and finally save the land I’ve come to love.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from How Many Books Does It Take To Kill One Villain? Too Darn Many I have to admit, I mostly skimmed through this book - because I couldn't handle Amy Gumm's whining. She's ridiculously selfish and wants everyone and everything for herself. She gets mad when the witches don't offer her the moon, but then complains in the next paragraph about how she doesn't even trust them. She has an on-again, off-again relationship with her love interest, and even then she constantly fluctuates between pushing him away and crying because he's not paying her any attention. These books become increasingly more ridiculous; I feel as though I've wasted my time by reading them. Glad to be done with the series finally.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What? This book was horrible. What happened to all the characters that I loved from the first few books? Is this book even from the same series? And the fate of Dorothy was such a cop out. First book was good and it just went downhill from there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Amazing Series! At first I was upset Danielle Paige wrote another instalment, but honestly, I am so glad she did! This series is so amazing and addicting. This one was really cool as we got to read the story from both Dorothy and Amy's point of view. I do wish the book had been a little longer (with a little more detail). #plumreview

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun, Fast & Entertaining Trip To Oz "The End of Oz" os slated as the final book in Paige's Oz re-imagined series, though honestly I doubt this thoroughly. There's always room for more. But I digress... our novel picks up exactly where "Yellow Brick War" ended. We join our stalwart intrepid heroes, with additional new faces, both good and bad- as they undertake wrapping up their overall mission, which is essentially to save Oz. What is exceptional about this series are the female characters, their character growth/ development and the minimal tropes of the old damsel in distress idiocy. All female characters in this book (and pretty much full series) are real and evolving. They learn from errors, see flaws and embrace them. I would feel extremely comfortable if this series was read by young women, or do they call them young adults now? This book is fun to read, it is fast paced (almost to a fault) and can be devoured in an afternoon if one is up for it. I will not lie, it does feel hollow and ends on a somewhat artificially sweet note (in this Witch's opinion). The speed to which plot points are developed and seemingly under developed is what really takes away from the concept. I certainly hope it's not the last in the series, I honestly would hate to see it end the way it did.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun read Spoiler alert, this is not the last book in the series. That being said, I enjoyed the different perspectives of the story switching between Amy and Dorothy with the latter maybe a little twisted with regards to how they see the world...Decent story and the pace was good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dark, twisting and --- not the last book This came as no surprise to me at all, Paige did not fail to beautifully write another book in the series. It was great, sincere and hopeful, yet I feel as if the series have been a bit of a drag. For example when the first book's tittle is named "Dorothy must die" I expect that her death is upon us rather than the deaths of everyone but her, on contrary, Paige did find a good alternate to "defeating Dorothy". One thing I have truly treasured is Amy's strong change of personality, of how she'd come from a whimp, to someone who felt very much of a real hero. Rather than having people tell her what to do, she'd take control of herself, she was ruthless. Paige had made me feel as if Amy was a real person, unlike Nox, who I felt was a bit to cliche and someone who cannot keep a constant character throughout the series, his character kept drastically changing. During the first book was by far my favourite personality of Nox, someone with built in walls and struggling to trust anyone but himself, he was strong, stubborn and well, afarid. Book 2 made me feel very uncertain of Nox, he got soft-- too soft. book 3 made me rethink if I ever really liked the relationship between Amy and Nox, it was cheesy and fast in a way, I didn't like it. And lastly the 4th book was not nearly as bad, I really like how paige wrote of how Amy felt as if Nox was home (if only she'd make the reader think that too). Now before I get too carried away in the whole Amy Nox drama, I want to talk about Madison, the bully, the best friend forever, I thought writing about an enemy becoming a best friend at first was going to be too predictable and emotionless (considering it's a very cliche plot) however, I felt a strong pull towards Madison's character, her role stayed constant, and I loved how honest and real Madison felt, like giving birth had changed her completely as a person (though nothing like Nox's abnormal personality swings) she was still the same humorous and teasing Madison but her interests at heart had beg to differ. and lastly I wanted to talk about Dorothy's character, finally we got a glimpse of who she was from the inside, not her past, nor the stories you hear from her humble servants. She was still very cruel and selfish (a bit of a ego as well) yet, she was also smart, she knew very well as to what she was doing and yes, she did have a heart. (I'll stop talking about Dorothy for the sake of spoilers) In conclusion to my unedited, very long review mainly created for only the characters of the Dorothy Must Die series, I think very highly of the series, very attention grabbing, and twisting, makes you question who the hell the bad guy really is. Danielle Paige, you have my recommandation to all readers of the magical world plot. Loved and rated. Yours truly -R
