Dorothy Must Die
Book #35 Read in 2014
Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige
This is a different take on The Wizard of Oz. In this book Dorothy is evil and in charge of Oz. A tornado brings another Kansas girl, Amy, to Oz. The Revolutionary Order of the Wicked ("bad" witches that seem to be the good guys) decide that Amy must be the one to kill Dorothy so they begin to train her in magical ways before sending her into Dorothy's palace to kill her. Of course, there is a cliffhanger ending that begs for book #2....but I can think of worse things....
This book was a good read. There was a lot of actions and plot twists to keep one engaged. Amy is a good anti-hero and I enjoyed her sense of humor and her guts. I loved Ollie the flying monkey.
I received a copy of this book through the Amazon Vine review program.
