Dorothy lives. Amy Gumm has failed. Her mission has become complicated. Because now she must not only kill Dorothy, but she must remove the Tin Woodman’s heart, steal the Scarecrow’s brain, and take the Lion’s courage. All while carting around the poor, loopy princess of Oz, Ozma herself. Because now this mission isn’t just about saving Oz, it’s about saving Kansas too.
What I liked:
The manipulation of the world was pretty good. I liked the Ozma storyline well enough.
What I didn’t like:
This one fell really flat for me. The first one was so good, I really loved it, and then I got to the second one, and I wanted to love it, but it felt like it wandered and meandered through this world, not really accomplishing much. I’m not certain if I will read the third in the series, I know it’s a trilogy, but after this one, I’m rather disenchanted with the series.
I can’t recommend this one. If you’re like me, you’re probably reading it because you read the first, but be warned. You may not enjoy it as much.
