The Wicked Will Rise

Man it took forever for me to finish this book! I actually bought it back in March when it came out and started reading it then, but I didn’t finish it till earlier this week. It’s not because I didn’t like it or anything, I actually really loved it, but some parts of it were pretty boring, and for someone like me going through a reading slump, it did not make a good combination.

All I can really say about this book without spoiling anything is that it takes place immediately after Dorothy Must Die. In the end of that book, Amy is getting ready to leave the Emerald City, in this book, she is flying away from it. That’s how immediate.

I rated this book at about 4 stars on Goodreads, though I think it’s more of a 4.5, since a good part of it did bore me, but Goodreads foolishly doesn’t have half stars. It wasn’t as good as Dorothy Must Die for me, but there where characters brought in that I really loved. I’m looking forward to the next book, even though sadly I saw it’s not coming out till 2017. Honestly this book wrapped up in the end I though this was it. I did like how it ended, it reminded me of how The Wizard of Oz ended, so I hope the next book feels the same way.  Continue reading

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 blue birds. 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 the yellow brick road, though—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:
Remove the Tin Woodman’s heart.
Steal the Scarecrow’s brain.
Take the Lion’s courage.
Then and only then—Dorothy must die!
