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 bluebirds. 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 a yellow brick road - 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.

Amy is a trailer trash nobody whoes life just sucked. Then in comes a freak tornado and like the Wizard of Oz she once watched with her mother, she was no longer in Kansas but Oz. Unlike the movie there was no happy munchkins and everything seemed like crap, on top of that Dorothy is somehow the bad guy and Dorthy is under the wings of the wicked witches. Amy is some how left with one mission: Killing Dorthy.

I gotta admit I tried picking up this book many times before and this book just didnt do it for me. Then I found out that my local library had an audiobook and it was the right choice for me. Everything seemed more colorful and lively listening to the readers voice.

I loved how topsy turvey things was in this book. I loved how nothing is as it seems and I kept getting surprised with each reveal. I loved that there were plenty going on to keep me hooked. This book was a gorey and interesting at times. This book ... or audio book was hard to stop once I started it. Thankfully I have the next book with me so after this review I'm going straight forward I need to know what happens next.

All I'm going to leave you with is that this book is fantastic and I loved it. Highly recommend you lovely readers to check out this book!
