The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige – #2 Dorothy Must Die series

Where have I been? I promise that I’ve been doing my best to read. But midterms are in a week and it is all I can do to stay afloat. Currently, I have no laptop and my phone has been giving me a lot of problems so blogging hasn’t been the easiest task. But I’m ready to catch up on all the books I’ve finished reading!

After failing to kill Dorothy, Amy Gumm is running from the fight in order to recuperate and find the rest of the Order of Wicked. If the stakes weren’t high before, they certainly are now. Magic is slowly making its way back into Oz – but is this a good thing or just another scheme of Dorothy’s to control Oz?

As usual, I can’t really write much about this sequel without ruining the first book. I liked this novel better than its predecessor. It had a lot more character development and depth. As is the stereotype, Amy goes through a bit of soul-searching and has a good vs evil identity battle. It was a short,  exciting read and I’m eagerly waiting to read the final installment of the series. I know that there are some prequels written in this series but I’m probably not going to be able to read them. If you do, dear reader, let me know how they are and whether I should give them a shot!

Happy reading ~
