In this third book in the New York Times best-selling Dorothy Must Die series, new girl from Kansas Amy Gumm is caught between her home - and Oz.
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.

This book took a few surprising turns. The most surprising is that it isn't the end of the series. I had thought this would be the last book and was hoping for a satisfying end to the story which I did not get. It's very clear that there will be a sequel. The story is a little more action packed than the last so it felt short to me. I am actually very disappointed that the story isn't over. I know that there are a lot of original Oz books for the author to use as a foundation for a longer story. I feel she should have completely resolved this arc before dragging Amy off to a new adventure or that she could have tied it in better. There are a lot of authors that say they always know how their series would end before they even began writing. I honestly didn't get that feeling from this book, the whole thing feels a little lost. Overall I think I will just wait till the series is completely over before I continue reading. I also feel like her editors should have caught her over use of the phrase "She didn't have to tell me twice" and it's many variations. The narrator did a decent job.
I love books, they save you, get you in trouble, and fill a piece of your heart that is always going missing. They are simply enchanting.
there is no review that can be given that does not contain at least a thousand spoilers. Danielle Paige does a fantastic job of sucking us back into the world of Amy gum in the Land of Oz. However she also is a master at bringing up characters we thought were dead and knowing as a 4th book. rumor has it we're getting the fourth book, but we have to wait until next year.
Recently found a love for books and with Audible I can clean and keep going - I also use it in my classroom to urge kids to read.
Just when I thought it would be the end, I feel this is dragging. And what is this Gnome King? Never heard of him, but I guess since Lu Lu and Pete were okay to add to the mix, why not ?? The reader is getting much better , but I still feel the writing is kinda choppy.
That this Ozian world is made bigger by adding more of Baum's characters.
When a new villain comes into the picture while Amy is searching for a magical object to get her back to OZ!
When a new villain comes into the picture while Amy is searching for a magical object to get her back to OZ! It is a bit creepy and exciting to find out who has been pulling the strings.
Since this is a violent version of the OZ books, any time something violent and disfiguring happens to a once beloved character, or any character, I feel really bad and disgusted, no matter if this new version of the character is a real witch.
Amy is back in Kansas and she is not alone. After the defeat of the Wizard; Amy, Dorothy and the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked find themselves back in Kansas. Soon it's a race to find a magical pair of silver slippers that will get them back to OZ, but who or what is hiding them. Can Amy find a way back to OZ, what will Amy's mom and enemies in Kansas think when they see she survived a tornado, and can she finally kill Dorothy? Work for the wicked is never done! Just like the other books in the series this book has terrible, gory scenes happening to once beloved Ozian characters. The third book seemed a bit different then the others in that there is not as much violence as in the previous books. I think this is mostly because half of the book takes place in "boring" Kansas, not crazy, violent, and bloody apocalyptic OZ. I was happy to find that this is not the last book in the series. They throw a few new plot lines in, so I wondered how they where going to wrap them all up by the end of this book if this was the last one. Happily there is at least one more!
