Overview

The sequel to the New York Times bestselling Dorothy Must Die! This collector's edition features a reversible jacket with a full-color map of Oz and commentary from the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked, as well as an exclusive extra scene from Danielle Paige. The Wicked Will Rise is perfect for fans of edgy YA and reimagined fairytales, like Marissa Meyer's Lunar Chronicles.

My name is Amy Gumm—and I'm the other girl from Kansas.

After a tornado swept through my trailer park, I ended up in Oz. But it wasn't like the Oz I knew from books and movies. Dorothy had returned, but she was now a ruthless dictator. Glinda could no longer be called the Good Witch. And the Wicked Witches who were left? They'd joined forces as the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked, and they wanted to recruit me.

My mission? Kill Dorothy.

Except my job as assassin didn't work out as planned. Dorothy is still alive. The Order has vanished. And the home I couldn't wait to leave behind might be in danger.

Somehow, across a twisted and divided land, I have to find the Order, protect the true ruler of Oz, take Dorothy and her henchmen down—and try to figure out what I'm really doing here.

The Wicked will Rise

User Review

Setting
Amy is still on a quest to kill Dorothy. After being swept away to Oz, she is the only one that can get rid of her. Dorothy is draining all the magic from the land of Oz for herself, and Oz is dying.
Characters
Amy is the main character, and not sure who to trust. She thinks Nox is on her side, along with the Wicked Witches.
All the characters from the story are there, but they are not the same. Dorothy is evil, the Wicked Witches are good (?), the scarecrow is smart, (but mean) the cowardly lion is brave and likes to eat people. And the Tin Man is secretly in love with Dorothy.
Good Points
There was never anything that was predictable. On of my favorite parts is when Amy is sent to find the land of Rainbows.
She meets many people (and animals) and all are in favor of killing Dorothy. But it seems impossible because she has too much magic.
Plot Summary
Amy feels abandoned by the order. She has failed in her mission to kill Dorothy, (but has killed others) and has no idea what to do or where to go.
Is the Wizard good or evil? She can trust no one.
In order to eliminate Dorothy, she needs to get the Scarecrow's Brains, The Tin Man's heart, and the Lion's courage. But how?
She has magic, and finds out how easily she can be taken into the dark side.
Ending
Ending was a cliffhanger for the next in the series.
