I certainly enjoyed the characters and the plot of the story but more than anything I was fascinated by how much this Oz is different from the one we heard of as kids. And it's just plain fun. People are starting to get old. Dorothy Gale is the main character in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, which was the prequel for the Dorothy Must Die Series. Pray for a tornado to take you back to Kansas, because man, Oz is fucked up as shit.
There was something dead about all of it. But this is messed up. And thank you Belle for the recommendation. After some mysterious parting words, the boy disappears, leaving poor Amy wondering what the actual fuck just happened? They say she seized power and the power went to her head. It's one of my favorite fantasy series ever, probably more so than Harry Potter. Stupid girl to impossible, slightly mean witch boy. I wanted other places, other people.
A soft command from the supposedly brain-fried Ozma pulls her back from outright killing the Lion, after removing his courage. This book is so dark. And the Cowardly Lion became King of all beast and went to live in the rainforests and jungles of Oz to rule over the animal kingdom. Also, the clinging to the past was beyond annoying, Amy kept doing something I hated over and over again until I wanted to strangle her. Yet, Oz is not the majestic wonder depicted either in L. I love me a good retelling. They say she found a way to come back to Oz.
Later on, it's made permanently pink. I'm not fond of the fact that Dorothy is pictured to be so vain, but underneath all that, there's sheer madness. She has a mission to do and she's damn well not going to screw it up for the sake of saving one person. The bodice nipped, tucked, and lifted. My name is Amy Gumm—and I'm the other girl from Kansas. Maybe it was stupid of me. And so, good is wicked, and wicked is good, and yet when Amy joins forces with the witches of evil or good? How do you think Dorothy Must Die compares with Frank L.
It hooked Oh gosh, where shall I start? So where did it all go wrong? Until well, shit, the tornado actually happens. Dorothy came back and apparently became power and magic hungry. I wanted to leave everything and everyone behind. But I never expected Oz to look like this. There can only be one.
The beloved Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion are mutated and twisted into something atrocious!

As Amy had been warned many times, I didn't know who to trust except Amy herself and her pet rat, Star. Here, women and girls are allowed to be anything. I may end up trying the sequel, but definitely with a lot less expectation and excitement than I had for this one. While he's evil and kills without a second thought, he wasn't like that before Dorothy took over Oz, and part of the reason why he follows her orders is because he's madly in love with her, but she doesn't reciprocate. In the first half Amy has to get used to Oz, I get it. Just imagining how her constant life must be like made my heart sink.
A big fan of the classic children's book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz, she's extremely surprised to find Oz really exists. This book…was really something; an amazing thing. The creepiness of the setting was frequently well-shown. Before I cut them off. The kind who is realistically flawed, complex, well-rounded and interesting.
She clicked them three times too along with her Uncle and Aunt, only to find themselves back in Oz, with the disbelief of her Uncle and Aunt. Her mouth is permanently shaped into a grotesque grin by use of a new invention called Perma-smile. But, like many things, there was more to the story than meets the eye. Amy finds herself in a whole new world — literally — when her single-wide is swept up in a tornado Find all of my reviews at: 3. Here's what I have to briefly say: at first the writing was so perfect for me that I likened it to none other than Stacia Kane and I was wrong. But if this book is any indication, the cause of this cardiopulmonary arrest would be little else but frustrated boredom.
And thank you Belle for the recommendation. That's why I was skeptical when I saw that there was a series coming out that was a dark retelling of the Oz books. The cast in this story was beyond words. And apparently plastic grins are a thing in Oz, as a very angry Munchkin sees fit to tell Amy. How am I supposed to stop anyone from doing anything? And Yellow Brick War ends with Madison being pulled into Oz, the revelation that Glinda is still there, and the being out there. Its world-building is on par with the likes of , a dark Alice in Wonderland retelling. There's still a yellow brick road - but even that's crumbling.
