The New York Times bestselling first book in a dark new series that reimagines the Oz saga, from debut author Danielle Paige.
I didn't ask for any of this. I didn't ask to be some kind of hero. But when your whole life gets swept up by a tornado—taking you with it—you have no choice but to go along, you know?
Sure, I've read the books. I've seen the movies. I know the song about the rainbow and the happy little blue birds. But I never expected Oz to look like this. To be a place where Good Witches can't be trusted, Wicked Witches may just be the good guys, and winged monkeys can be executed for acts of rebellion. There's still a road of yellow brick—but even that's crumbling.
What happened? Dorothy. They say she found a way to come back to Oz. They say she seized power and the power went to her head. And now no one is safe.
My name is Amy Gumm—and I'm the other girl from Kansas. I've been recruited by the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked. I've been trained to fight. And I have a mission: Remove the Tin Woodman's heart. Steal the Scarecrow's brain. Take the Lion's courage. And—Dorothy must die.

Anyway...in modern-day Kansas, there's a girl, Amy Gumm, who isn't having the best time. Her mother lives (well,...
Let me start off by saying: If there were more than 5 stars to rate this book, I would rate it 10 out of 10 stars. First, the cover is amazing to look at. The word "DIE" across Dorothy's dress made me want to read it even more. The concept of the book is STUNNNING. The only downside I have about thi...
This book was a crazy ride of twists and turns. Paige’s alternative Land of Oz is truly one that comes from nightmares. The nice and sweet Dorothy, the girl from Kansas, is back in Oz but now she wants all the magic that Oz has to offer. Amy Gumm is not your typical girl from Kansas with pink hair a...
DNF 24%I love OZ but this was not for me.
I really enjoyed this book! It was a nice twist on the story we know and love. I connected with Amy and I thought she was an interesting character. I enjoyed the story line and each of the characters that came in/out of the story. I have been wanting to read this book for awhile and I am glad that ...
