After purchasing the original series to Dorothy Must Die on the morning of June 2, I came across these books later that night. As quickly as I could I decided to purchase these as well. They arrived the day after the first three Dorothy Must Die books (June 8), and I was pleased with my order. I purchased this one, and the second one, so that I could get started on the series. Since I purchased 3 books together I got free shipping which was a pleasant surprise! I've already started reading the first book, and I'm almost done. Haven't started on this one yet, so I can't give a proper review. However, the package was flawless, and none of the books were damaged.
Great stories from Ms. Paige as usual. I liked the way her Cowardly Lion story incorporated some of the events of Baum's "Ozma of Oz." Ozma being my favorite character of the Oz books, perhaps I'm prejudiced in that regard! She shows how the Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, and Cowardly Lion become corrupted through Glinda's evil magic. A great read for young adult readers and others.
I wish I had started this series later, so I could have read these first. Order all the books at the same time because you will go through them all so fast because you need to find out what happens next
I would've given it 5 stars if it wasn't for the Heart of Tin story. It was absolutely awful and gut-wrenching. It will make you want to cry and kill the Tin Man and the Scarecrow and Glinda. The other two novellas, though, were incredible! Go Danielle Paige!
