The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige is the The sequel of Dorothy Must Die, is as exciting as ever. Amy Gumm a Kansas girl who was whirled off to Oz during a tornado, now finds herself trying to kill Dorothy. After the first attempt on taking Dorothy’s life fails, Amy flees with the Wingless monkeys in tow. She meets with Mombi at the wingless monkey’s kingdom.
There she is instructed to meet up with the rest of the Witch Order, and to figure out another plan. Will she succeed? Or will Dorothy outwit her and turn Amy’s plan to shambles again? I liked this book because it has a very adventurous plot. Every new event is unsuspected and exciting. You never know what’s going to happen. After every chapter, Danielle Paige makes you want for more, and more, and more.
I also liked how she imagined a future for all the original Oz characters, and in a surprising turn, she makes the original characters evil! I would recommend this book to teens, but probably girls. It puts a refreshing twist on the original fairy tale. The story is told from Amy’s perspective, so girls could have an easier time relating to her. Also *YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED* As like most teens, Miss Amy sometimes has a dirty mouth, so occasionally she mutters curse words, but nothing really bad. This is such a good book and I hope whoever reads it liked it just as much as I liked it.
