The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige (Dorothy Must Die book 2)
SPOILER ALERT! If you haven’t read the first book in the series, Dorothy Must Die, Stop! I don’t want to ruin the series for you.
Please visit the Recaptains blog if you need a refresher on the first book in the series.
“My name is Amy Gumm - And I’m the other girl from Kansas. My mission? Kill Dorothy. And who is actually wicked?”
Oz is in disarray after Amy’s failed attempt at killing Dorothy. The Wizard has told her that the key to eliminating Dorothy will be to kill her three friends first. She does manage to kill the Tin Woodman and retrieve his clockwork heart. She and Ozma were carried off by Ollie and Maude to the queendom of the Wingless Ones and meet Queen Lulu. The members of the Order have disappeared and Amy is concerned about finding Nox. It seems that she has developed some feelings for him. When Pete resurfaces, she uncovers the truth about who he really is. As the landscape changes in Oz and the magic begins to flow again, Amy realizes one thing; she doesn’t know who she can trust.
Will Amy find Nox? Who is Pete? Can she trust the members of the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked? Will Princess Ozma ever be fit to rule Oz once again? And can Amy remove the Lion’s courage and take back the Scarecrow’s brain in her attempt to rid Oz from Dorothy’s rule?
