The Wicked Will Rise (B&N Exclusive Edition) (Dorothy Must Die Series #2) by Danielle Paige

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.

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!

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 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!!!

Full Review on Stellar Kitten Book Reviews: ❝ In Dorothy’s Oz, you did what you had to do. You made hard choices. You traded flight for freedom, if you had to, even if it meant losing a part of yourself. Sometimes, in Dorothy’s Oz, you had to get your hands a little bloodied.❞ I have to say that although I liked this book it didn’t have the same spark that the first book had. Amy starts on her quest to retrieve the items so that she can kill Dorothy, but something happens early on that pushes her over the edge, and from then on she struggles to control the dark magic that threatens to change her. She questions whether she is more Wicked than Good, whether she is truly walking down the same path as Dorothy. It’s a concern even her own friends share. Thanks to the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked, magic is slowly returning to the land and with this change, Ozma is also growing stronger. She’s still not all there, but she seems to understand more than she lets on. Her counterpart, Pete, still didn’t show up very much (which isn’t different from the first book) but I felt like he was made out to be more human in this book. ❝ In a world turned upside down like this, where sweet little Dorothy Gale was evil, Glinda the Good was eviler, and most everyone else was either scheming or scrambling to stay out of the way, there were crazier things you could do than putting your trust in people who called themselves wicked.❞ Now, there were two differences between the first book and this one that I think took away from the charm the first book had: the romance and plot. I think things were building up slowly in the first book between Amy and Nox, which I could appreciate, but her obsession with worrying about him more than anyone else was annoying. Especially when she kept telling herself it wasn’t because she liked him. I just think it jumped too quickly from someone she thought she liked to someone she couldn’t stop thinking about. The other thing that bothered me was the plot. It didn’t feel like it was as focused as it was in the first book. I sometimes forgot what it was that Amy was working towards. The plot was a little messy between her trying to figure out where she stood on morally, retrieving the items for the Wizard, and then also apparently trying to track down the rest of the Order. I still enjoyed the book because of the writing style and funny moments with all the characters, but I hope the plot is more focused in the next book. As it stands, I’m a little confused about where the series will be going next but I’m still looking forward to the journey.

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.

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.
