The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige

The Wicked

Okay so I finally read the second book in the series and OH MY GAWD!!!!

I don’t know how I’m going to put my feelings into words but I’ll try.

The summary goes like this:

In this dark, high-octane sequel to the New York Times bestselling Dorothy Must Die, Amy Gumm must do everything in her power to kill Dorothy and free Oz.

To make Oz a free land again, Amy Gumm was given a mission: remove the Tin Woodman’s heart, steal the Scarecrow’s brain, take the Lion’s courage, and then Dorothy must die….

But Dorothy still lives. Now the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked has vanished, and mysterious Princess Ozma might be Amy’s only ally. As Amy learns the truth about her mission, she realizes that she’s only just scratched the surface of Oz’s past—and that Kansas, the home she couldn’t wait to leave behind, may also be in danger. In a place where the line between good and evil shifts with just a strong gust of wind, who can Amy trust—and who is really Wicked?

The main character Amy Gunn was tasked to collect three items: the Tin Woodman’s heart, the Scarecrow’s brain and the Lion’s courage to kill Dorothy. And as she goes on her journey and getting closer to killing Dorothy, she meets new characters on the way and we also learn and old character’s backstory.

The first book was just an introduction compared to this book and I think the third book will be the most shocking.

The author really put a really dirty twist on the original The Wizard of Oz and I’m really loving it. Once all three books come out I would love to have the collection on my shelf!
