In this New York Times bestselling sequel to Dorothy Must Die, who is good--and who is actually Wicked? The Wicked Will Rise is perfect for fans of richly reimagined fairy tales and classic tales like Marissa Meyer's Lunar Chronicles and Gregory Maguire's Wicked. 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.… (mere)

I don't know that I've ever wished for a male main character over a female one but I wish that these stories were told from Pete's perspective. Because, here's the thing, I love Paige's interpretations of the original characters. The best part of this book for me was when Bright and Polychrome showed up in all their flirtatious, scatter-brained glory (even if it was really strange trying to adjust to the idea of a sexy adult Bright). So when the book tried to go back and develop Amy more, I just got impatient for more Oz characters. If the books had been about Pete, about his attempts to become a separate person from Ozma while getting to know this new Oz, I would have liked them even more. And him working with the Wicked Witches would have more impact than Amy since he already has a connection to Mombi and it would interesting to see him grapple with the idea of having "wicked" powers as compared to Ozma's pure fairy magic. I'm still excited to read the last part but honestly these books just make want to reread the Oz series again. ( )

Not as good as the first book in my opinion..
Lacking a little bit of punch but still an interesting story line and the ending had a decent twist ( )

Weird. It has been a while since I read the first one, so i don't remember it much...or at all, but I thought I liked it okay. This book screams teenager to me. Crappy melodrama with respect to romance, token gay character, and so many fighting scenes I thought I was reading the Avengers or some such Marvel comics. Most of the supporting cast are one dimensional, and there is some attempt at making the protagonist dynamic, but mostly it is teen angst and confusion, assuming she knows it all but is also a child and occasionally petulant.

Emerald City is burning. The Order of the Wicked has disappeared. And Dorothy isn't dead.

Amy Gumm's journey to return Oz to its former glory continues in The Wicked Will Rise, the second book in the Dorothy Must Die series. Accompanied by the magically confused Ozma, Amy continues her quest, while fighting to control the magic growing within her. The lines between Good and Wicked are blurred, leaving Amy unsure who to trust. But she knows she must gather the tin man's heart, the Lion's Courage, and the Scarecrow's brains.....and then kill Dorothy.

There was less action in this book than the first one. But, there was a lot of character development and some cool revelations about what is actually going on. Interesting......but I do have to admit being a bit disappointed that nothing was really resolved in this book. Nice plot development.....but not a lot of progress towards the ultimate goal. I think perhaps this is a case where the plot was stretched because the series had to continue for more than just 1 or 2 books. So book two is like an extended travelling montage.....we're off to kill Dorothy, but we need a book or two of development before we can actually do that. Not that I mind development, interesting side quests and the addition of quirky, cool new characters....but in the end, very little really happened.

All in all, I like this series so far and I'm going to continue reading. It seems in each book Dorothy gets one more piece she needs to defeat Dorothy. So book 3 must be the quest for scarecrow's brain....then book 4.....bye bye Dorothy? I'm a sucker for anything Oz.....so I'm happy to continue reading. The books are entertaining, quick reads...so there's no harm in things being stretched out a bit. I'm glad I waited to read this series until most of the books were already released. If I had read this book as a new release, the slow pace and months of waiting for a new book would have been annoying. I am not a patient person. :)

On to book 3 - Yellow Brick War! And book 4, The End of Oz, is set to release in mid-March! I think I started reading this series at just the right time! :)

Long review short. This is book two in the Dorothy Must Die series by Danielle Paige. You can read my review of book one, here. I gave book one three stars too, so I am going to have to think hard for continuing on with this series after this. I initially said if book two didn't grab me I wasn't going to continue. There are so many books out there, it's not worth it to keep plugging along at a series that does not engage you anymore.

I had to give up on James Patterson's Women's Murder Club, Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum, Laurell K Hamilton's Anita Blake, and threw in the towel this year on J.D. Robb's In Death series.

This book essentially is just book one all over again we very little forward momentum. We have Amy still going around lamenting her past while also becoming a super powered dark Mary Sue. I wish I was kidding about that last part.

There are spoilers for book one in this review, so please skip if you have not read book one yet.

We ended book one with Amy fleeing the Emerald Palace with Princess Ozma after trying to kill Dorothy and failing. We also had the surprise of finding out that Pete, the boy who randomly appeared and tried to help out Amy, was also Princess Ozma. For any fans of the Oz series I clued into that one right away since I had read the previous books and I was ready for Ms. Paige to show her hand on that one.

The Wizard dispatches Amy to remove the Tin Woodman’s heart, steal the Scarecrow’s brain, take the Lion’s courage, and then she will be able to kill Dorothy.

Now I for one would have not trusted a thing that the Wizard said since hey just like in L. Frank Baum's books, we find out the guy is out for himself, and he bears responsibility of things that occurred because he sold Princess Ozma to one of the wicked witches in order to rule Oz. Apparently Amy doesn't have great critical thinking skills and decides to do what the Wizard wants while trying to find others from the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked, specifically Nox.

As I said above, Amy with no training or anyone to guide her is suddenly able to tap into dark magic and becomes a jumped up Dark Mary Sue. Instead of getting any character growth for Amy, we just have her becoming a more efficient fighter/witch. We don't get a chance to explore any other characters since this book is written in the first person, and we only get to hear Amy's musings about other people, things, events, etc. The main character is a teenager so there is not a lot of depth being displayed while she keeps internally monologuing.

Besides the Dark Mary Sue stuff, this book drags a lot. I don't usually mind first person POV books, but this one definitely shows why many people don't like them. There was way too much tell going on throughout this entire book. Paraphrasing here, say if if Amy was angry, Ms. Paige would then write it by saying that Amy was saying to herself I am angry right now and can feel myself getting angry and readied myself to throw magic at the Lion. The whole book started to get bogged down and got really repetitive throughout.

There was an interesting wrinkle in this book that one wonders how Ms. Paige will resolve it in the final book. She also does include more details about Oz in this book, and those familiar with L. Frank Baum's Oz books will love the re-tellings of characters like Bright and Polychrome. ( )
