The Wicked Years continue in Gregory Maguire’s Son of a Witch—the heroic saga of the hapless yet determined young man who may or may not be the offspring of the fabled Wicked Witch of the West. A New York Times bestseller like its predecessor, the remarkable Wicked, Son of a Witch follows the boy Liir on his dark odyssey across an ingeniously re-imagined and nearly unrecognizable Land of Oz—a journey that will take him deep into the bowels of the Emerald City, lately abandoned by the Wizard, and into the jaws of dragons.

If you have time, read some of the one-star reviews for the first book (http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/37442.Wicked). It's hilarious how mad these ...
I liked the writing and language of this book. However, my complaint, as with the middle books of any series, is that it just feels like a set-up/stepping stone for the rest of the series. I also wish that we'd gotten more closure in at least one quest Liir had (trying to avoid spoilers). I will ...
Entretenido y de fácil lectura, aunque Wicked es muchísimo mejor.
