In this action-packed sequel to The Wizard of OZ: A Steampunk Adventure, American author S.D. Stuart returns to the Australis Penal Colony, where an ancient, and devastating, weapon was hidden a millennium ago.
Imprisoned by the Southern Marshal, a half-human, half-lion hybrid lives behind an electrified fence with others like him. His only chance at freedom is to locate and recover this ancient weapon before a mysterious shadow organization uses it to conquer the world.
Joined by old allies, he races across the continent sized prison, making new friends and new enemies alike, to find the hybrid weapon before the humans do. His journey will not be easy as he encounters a new OZ more dangerous than the one he left behind.

This is one of my top favorites. This as well as the first installment of the story. The story is so engaging and fun and a COMPLETELY different take on oz. This is not your normal Dorothy and the ruby red slippers. In the second installment of the story we follow Caleb ("the lion") on his quest to find Dorothy. They were split up shortly after making their way over the wall into the other side of oz. Caleb is determined to find Dorothy and proceed in their previous quest. The authors transition to the new and continued story lines is amazing. We run into old and new characters that all assist on Caleb and Dorothy's adventure.
Some of the most memorable moments are the twists of finding out who is a "scarecrow." I can't list most of the memorable moments with out giving away some of the twists and turns in the plot. Just know that the whole book is memorable and it is worth reading to find out what they are!!
The narration of this book is spectacular. The voices and excitement in Amanda's voice really help to take the reader into oz and really picture and feel the story. It is a great listen and highly recommended!!
