I’ve just stumbled upon this masterpiece and I’m so looking forward to reading it. I don’t think this would fall under the Waiting on Wednesday category since it has been released, so I’ll have it posted as a recommendation. I haven’t got my copy yet and I can’t wait to get one. I know. I know. I still have tons of books to read, but I can’t help being thrilled about this. It’ll feel like finally getting your hands on a long lost teddy bear. 😃
The prequel is released the 12th of November, 2013 and it has 196 pages on it. Dorothy Must Die is released 1st of April, 2014 and it has 452 pages. Both of them were published by HarperCollins.
After returning to Kansas, Dorothy Gale has realized that the dreary fields of Kansas don’t compare to the vibrant landscapes of Oz. And although she’s happy to be reunited with Aunt Em, she misses her friends from the yellow brick road. But most of all, Dorothy misses the fame and the adventure. In Kansas she’s just another prairie girl, but in Oz she was a hero. So Dorothy is willing to do anything to get back, because there really is no place like Oz. But returning to the land she left comes at a price, and after Dorothy is through with it, Oz will never be the same.
I didn’t ask for any of this. I didn’t ask to be some kind of hero.
But when your whole life gets swept up by a tornado—taking you with it—you have no choice but to go along, you know?
Sure, I’ve read the books. I’ve seen the movies. I know the song about the rainbow and the happy little blue birds. But I never expected Oz to look like this. To be a place where Good Witches can’t be trusted, Wicked Witches may just be the good guys, and winged monkeys can be executed for acts of rebellion. There’s still the yellow brick road, though—but even that’s crumbling.
What happened? Dorothy.
They say she found a way to come back to Oz. They say she seized power and the power went to her head. And now no one is safe.
My name is Amy Gumm—and I’m the other girl from Kansas.
I’ve been recruited by the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked.
I’ve been trained to fight.
And I have a mission.
A spin to the famous book of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz! You know, Dorothy with her red shoes, The Tin Man, The Cowardly Lion, Toto and The Scarecrow. That’s awesome right? If you are not reading any worthy books at this time, you might want to check this out. It’s highly recommended by a lot of book lovers out there. Definitely marking this as Want-To-Read.
