Overview

In this third book in the New York Times bestselling Dorothy Must Die series, new girl from Kansas Amy Gumm is caught between her home—and Oz. This Barnes & Noble exclusive edition contains a full-color illustrated Oz family tree!

My name is Amy Gumm. Tornadoes must have a thing about girls from Kansas, because—just like Dorothy—I got swept away on one too. I landed in Oz, where Good is Wicked, Wicked is Good, and the Wicked Witches clued me in to my true calling: Assassin.

The way to stop Dorothy from destroying Oz—and Kansas—is to kill her. And I'm the only one who can do it.

But I failed. Others died for my mistakes. Because of me, the portal between the worlds has been opened. And if I don't find a way to close it?

Dorothy will make sure I never get to go home again.

Now it's up to me to: join the Witches, fight for Oz, save Kansas, and stop Dorothy once and for all.

Editorial Reviews

USA Today
“Gone are the days of rainbows, Lollipop Guilds and pretty much anything to sing about in a major key. For those willing to go on a quest with a heroine more attuned to our times than the Dust Bowl era, there’s no place like it.”
Booklist
“Paige has embellished upon the original Wizard of Oz story to create a completely new, even more bizarre Oz and cast of characters. Her world building is fascinating.”
Teen Vogue
“The Wizard of Oz as you’ve never seen it.”
Huffington Post
“For anyone who likes a good story turned on its head, Dorothy Must Die is a must-read.”
Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
“Paige is creating a rather brilliantly twisted version of the familiar world of Oz.”
Nerdist.com
“Dorothy Must Die is kind of the ultimate in girl-powered literature. Here, women and girls are allowed to be anything.”

I was so sure it was going to be the last book, even when I started reading it, but after the ending (and after checking on goodreads) there definitely is going to be at least one more book (Yay!). This book was addictive. The whole trilogy (or, actually, series) was. I couldn't stop reading it. I read it in one day (!). The writing style is so engaging and fast-paced, you just fly through this book. Amy is one kickass-sarcastic-awesome protagonist. She has her flaws (and you want to shake her at times) but who doesn't? It's the kind of flaws you're not bothered by because they are real. They make sense. Amy is truly amazing in her own right. What I love about Danielle books is how she constantly changes and plays with our prospective of good and evil. There are never clear lines between the two. Evil can turn good and good can turn evil. And what is someone who, for good reasons, does evil things? It's written in a light and fun way (which I love) but there are also deep meanings in this series (which I also love).

An amazing installment is a wonderful series! The characters in this novel are continually developed, and the interactions made between characters scream emotion. This works to make the many surprising plot twists even more shocking. Can't wait for the next one!

I’m not even sure if I can objectively review “Yellow Brick War”, and since this one isn’t for a publisher, I’m not even going to try to be dignified. *flail* Ilovethemsomuch. *flail* Ahem. If you can’t tell, I liked the book. It may be my favorite of the series. The best plot twist isn’t even in the book. Is it next year yet?
