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.

Customer Reviews of The Wicked Will Rise

Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very middle-book-ish The Wicked Will Rise had similar strengths to Dorothy Must Die, with a wicked twist on Oz, creepy characters, and a smart, irreverent heroine. However, it also suffered from a near fatal case of Middle Book Syndrome. It was short, kind of rushed, with not a ton of resolution or climax. It was a short and gradual climb towards what I'm sure will be an interesting third book, but this one was a bit of a disappointment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing Enjoyable and a great plot! You can’t help but fall in love with the characters and root for them as they continue their journey. This is a book you won’t be able to put down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yes!! Just finished this one the other day, and it was just as good as the first. Can't wait to read the third book!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lacking The first book in this series captured my interest, but this one is making me lose interest. I love the novellas that are attached to this series (if you haven't checked them out, please do). Yet, I can't seem to get into the main storyline, I don't know if it is because it drags on, or so many ridiculous things happen, but I can't get into it. Here's to hoping the next one is better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Read! I read Dorothy Must Die and fell in love with the whole twist of the classic story. I will admit that it was a quick read, but there were many unanswered questions. I love the way the author tells the story, and the twists and turns she took throughout the book. Great read :)
