Pages: 452I 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.
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!
