Overview

The stunning conclusion to the smash New York Times bestselling series the Wicked Years.

Gregory Maguire’s Wicked Years series became national bestsellers and the basis for a hit Tony-winning Broadway musical. Now, Maguire returns with the final installment in his transformative work, a thrilling and compulsively readable saga in which the fate of Oz is decided at last . . . 

Once peaceful and prosperous, the spectacular Land of Oz is knotted with social unrest: The Emerald City is mounting an invasion of Munchkinland, Glinda is under house arrest, and the Cowardly Lion is on the run from the law. And look who’s knocking at the door. It’s none other than Dorothy. Yes. That Dorothy.

Yet amid all this chaos, Elphaba’s granddaughter, the tiny green baby born at the close of Son of a Witch, has come of age. Now it is up to Rain to take up her broom—and her legacy—in an Oz wracked by war.

The stirring, long-awaited conclusion to the bestselling series that began with Wicked, Out of Oz is a magical journey rife with revelations and reversals, reprisals and surprises—the hallmarks of the unique imagination of Gregory Maguire.

    more from this reviewer

    a great finish to a strong saga

    Oz Emperor Shell Thropp, brother to the late Wicked Witch of the West Elphaba, sends his Oz army to put down the rebellious break away in Munchkinland. To insure no bewitching interference, General Cherrystone arrests former Throne Minister Glinda. However, while he keeps Glinda incarcerated in her house, the General finds the good witch's broom girl Rain fascinating and begins to teach the child to read. He fails to recognize that his student is the granddaughter of Elphaba and the only person breathing who can comprehend the Grimmerie magical lore tome.

    A performing troupe gives the Grimmerie to Glinda for safekeeping. She has her friend Brrr the Cowardly Lion escort Rain on an identity quest. However, Glinda remains concerned over the well-being of the people of Oz as Dorothy of Kansas is back and everyone knows the singing and dancing Cornhusker irritant is a trouble magnet.

    The final "Wicked Years" Oz fantasy (see Wicked, Son of a Witch and A Lion Among Men) is a great finish to a strong saga as spin maestro Gregory Maguire deftly twists L. Frank Baum's classic novels in brilliant unexpected but logical extrapolations. The story line is fast-paced, but it is the deep look at the cast that makes the tale work; for instance everyone knows ultra optimist Dorothy is a plague with every rosy colored step she takes disaster walks with her. Readers will relish this saga as Mr. Maguire exposes the rest of the story.

    Very excited for this to come out!

    I have read Wicked & Son of a Witch recently and I absolutely loves them! A few days ago I got Lion Among Men, which I am very excited to start reading. I am sure that I will thoroughly enjoy the 3rd book, and this one.

    Fitting end to the series but...

    I enjoyed this installment but the ending of this book felt a little rushed. I recommend the series to everyone, though.

    I hope the teaser in this book means that this reallty isn't the end of our journey through Oz. C'mon, Gregory! Surely there are some Oz character backstories in you. How about a set of prequels taking place before the Wizard's reign?

    Always lovely to go over the rainbow to Maguire's Oz

    Maguire has written his best book since Wicked! Reading Out of Oz is like revisiting old friends and catching up on all the news. Glinda, Liir, Brrr, Candle, the maunts, dragons and soldiers--all are here and as wonderful and distinct as we remember them. It was sheer pleasure travelling with these characters through Oz, even though Oz is changed--in the middle of a civil war and near-martial law. If you loved Wicked, Out of Oz will not disappoint.

    I LOVED Wicked. Son of a Witch and A Lion Among Men were both good, but in some parts it dragged a little.

    Good, but dense.

    A nice way to end the series after a horrible 3rd book. Text is dense and sometimes hard to follow, but gives the fans what they've been wanting.

    LOVED, LOVED Wicked!! I read all of the series and was excited

    LOVED, LOVED Wicked!! I read all of the series and was excited to read the end. Very disappointing. Story dragged, and the new characters didn't come to life as in the other books. Good ending, but the book really could have been written about 150 pages rather than 500. In my opinion, it was a waste of my money.

    Not for Nook

    Unless you have a more sophisticated Nook, you should get this as a book that has at least one map so that you can mark the journey. I love this series, but I had a hard time keeping straight where they were.

    2.5 Stars

    I read this because of the first of Maguire's, Wicked series. The first novel of the series was outstanding. This was due to the many strong characters as reimagined by Gregory Maguire.
    None of them, only Glinda and Brr, are in this novel. I was unable to care about the newer characters or to be interested in the plot. This is despite having read L Frank Baum's original Oz book.

    This book is not a stand alone. It helps to read the first three books before this one.

    As for the ending, it was more of a ...meh.

    Gregory Maguird's Wicked, Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister, and Mirror Mirror are his top 3 works imho.

    This book took me on a ride, that's for sure. The reason for the 3 star rating (which is low for me) is the fact that the book itself seemed to drag through long stretches of it. I would find myself enthralled with a part of the book, only to be disappointed with a sense of too much detail, or a storyline that didn't seem to make sense. I do have to say that more made sense when I finally reached the end and I'm not entirely sure if it could have been told better or not. I also felt a sense of disappointment at the end, of questions left unanswered and a sort of let down at the paths the characters chose to take. I wish we'd learned more of what transpired with Rain and Tip after it all. I wish we'd learned who visited Glinda though I think we can call make a pretty good guess, it would have been nice to have confirmation. I'd like to have known if Ozma ever took over the ruling of Oz and if Dorothy made it home alright. All that being said, I did end up enjoying the book far more than I thought I would at the onset.

    Perfect Final book

    I love this book it really finishes out the WICKED YEARS series perfectly. Maguire ties up many loose ends and fills in the blanks from the the previous books masterfully. Finally we know what became of Liir, Candle, the Loin, Nanny, Nor, even Miss Gale herself makes a grand appearance. I highly recommend this book, but only after you have invested the time in the other three previous to it otherwise you will be very lost. I am sad the story is over to tell you the truth..

    Fantastic Series!!!

    When I finished Out of Oz, I was disappointed that the fantasy had ended. I have so much admiration for Gregory Maguire's keen mind and imagination! I loved the detail in development, whether it be character, situational or environment. This is a series that I will read more than once.

    A little disappointed...

    Can't say that I loved this book as much as I ADORED the original, but it was acceptable. Without giving away too much, I was disappointed with the ending, it WENT NOWHERE. I finished the book quickly, anticipating so much more. A re-read may be in order.
