Overview

The sequel to the New York Times bestselling Dorothy Must Die! This collector's edition features a reversible jacket with a full-color map of Oz and commentary from the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked, as well as an exclusive extra scene from Danielle Paige. The Wicked Will Rise is perfect for fans of edgy YA and reimagined fairytales, like Marissa Meyer's Lunar Chronicles.

My name is Amy Gumm—and I'm the other girl from Kansas.

After a tornado swept through my trailer park, I ended up in Oz. But it wasn't like the Oz I knew from books and movies. Dorothy had returned, but she was now a ruthless dictator. Glinda could no longer be called the Good Witch. And the Wicked Witches who were left? They'd joined forces as the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked, and they wanted to recruit me.

My mission? Kill Dorothy.

Except my job as assassin didn't work out as planned. Dorothy is still alive. The Order has vanished. And the home I couldn't wait to leave behind might be in danger.

Somehow, across a twisted and divided land, I have to find the Order, protect the true ruler of Oz, take Dorothy and her henchmen down—and try to figure out what I'm really doing here.

This was a novella, if you could even call it that. The author got lazy! Dorothy must die was excellent but this one was just thrown together, no effort, no imagination, no more for me!

I really enjoyed this series. I suggest reading the novellas first. The only thing I dont like is the cursing in the book. Almost like the author is trying to hard to be "hip". But the storyline is great!

I am in love with this series! It is very well written. I was on the edge of my seat; I basically read the whole thing in one day. The characters are intriguing and the plot is unpredictable(in a the best way possible). I cannot wait for the third one to come out!!!

The author has such a detailed imagination of the Dorothy Must Die series. She has created a story full of intrigue and detail. I am thoroughly enjoying this series.

The second book was captivating , the story took an even darker dive into the character Amy. I'm looking forward to reading the last installment.

Found through Serial Reads on Nook or I would not have tried it or found it. What a fun story that I can't say enough good about. I couldn't put it down. Read in one day and it left me wanting more. I'm addicted to this series for sure!!!

Great idea with so much potential to develop an interesting story with a lot of tension and back story. This potential was never developed The writing was juvenile. The ending was rushed and a total disappointment.

As much as I liked the first one, pacing, MC, story, etc, the sequel isn't that bad. Not as good as the first, but still good all the same. A little shorter but I still find it an enjoyable read. While the pacing was good, there was its share of slow moments which was fine. Writing style was alright and I still like Amy and her character development. The other characters were okay as well. Looking forward to the next one, after that ending.

I must say, I was pretty disappointed with this book. I absolutely loved the 1st book, Dorothy Must Die. I had a lot of trouble getting into this one & was only able to finish it as quickly as a I did because I wanted to get it over with & read something else. Nothing interesting happened until chapter 18, with only 80 pages left in a 293 page book. I gave it 3 out of 5 stars. The vivid descriptions, plot twist, & cliff hanger at the end are what saved it from a lower rating.

Dorothy Must Die was amazing and kept me wanting to read page after page. This though was not as well put together and the plot just dragged. Very disappointing.

I like how in this book, more characters from the Oz books were added. Button bright, polychrome, etc. But WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO BUTTON BRIGHT

Dorothy Must Die was an amazing read as I couldn't put it down, and as result, I was expecting the same thing out of The Wicked Will Rise.  I was greatly disappointed.  The book does not even seem to be written by the same author as the characters' dialogue is much different than the dialogue in the first book.  Dorothy's sass and colloquial language is coupled with elaborate vocabulary that I am sure Dorothy would not use in her everyday vernacular.  All of the characters have sass, and it is so overdone.  Not every character has to be a simpleton who reverts to wit. I hope the third book proves to be like the first and not the second.
