In this New York Times bestselling sequel to Dorothy Must Die, who is good—and who is actually Wicked? The Wicked Will Rise is perfect for fans of richly reimagined fairy tales and classic tales like Marissa Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles and Gregory Maguire’s Wicked.

My name is Amy Gumm—and I’m the other girl from Kansas. After a tornado swept through my trailer park, I ended up in Oz. But it wasn’t like the Oz I knew from books and movies. Dorothy had returned, but she was now a ruthless dictator. Glinda could no longer be called the Good Witch. And the Wicked Witches who were left? They’d joined forces as the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked, and they wanted to recruit me.

My mission? Kill Dorothy. Except my job as assassin didn’t work out as planned. Dorothy is still alive. The Order has vanished. And the home I couldn’t wait to leave behind might be in danger.

Somehow, across a twisted and divided land, I have to find the Order, protect the true ruler of Oz, take Dorothy and her henchmen down—and try to figure out what I’m really doing here.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dark, Depressing, And Overly Violent Quickly losing interest in this series. The first book was nothing special, but this book is extremely violent and gory and is putting me off wanting to read the rest of the series. I just started reading the third and I'm already bored; I will probably continue just for the sake of finishing it but I have no interest in picking this up ever again or reading anything else by Paige.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, Love, LOVE I loved this book as much as the first, the way she carried on the story was amazing and left you wanting more (she does NOT disappoint in the third either!). You need these books in your life, its such a compelling twist and plot line that captures you from start to finish; unlike most books where they lose you at some points. She did it again with this one and most definitely gets another 10/10 from me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly Amazing! A plot twisting conclusion! We all knew Dorothy as the hero, or so we think? Amy Gumm plays an a amazing role as a hero, but the question that still remains is... Will she end up like Dorothy, or continue being a mess-up hero she already is? I thought this book was amazing! The last words really was a cliff hanger and I can't wait until March for the 3rd book! To conclude my review I would really recommend this series to anyone who enjoys reading fairytales, adventure and a dash of drama.

“Paige’s world building is intriguing and effectively augments the original world created by L. Frank Baum.”
