The New York Times bestselling first book in a dark new series that reimagines the Oz saga, from debut author Danielle Paige.
I didn't ask for any of this. I didn't ask to be some kind of hero. But when your whole life gets swept up by a tornado—taking you with it—you have no choice but to go along, you know?
Sure, I've read the books. I've seen the movies. I know the song about the rainbow and the happy little blue birds. But I never expected Oz to look like this. To be a place where Good Witches can't be trusted, Wicked Witches may just be the good guys, and winged monkeys can be executed for acts of rebellion. There's still a road of yellow brick—but even that's crumbling.
What happened? Dorothy. They say she found a way to come back to Oz. They say she seized power and the power went to her head. And now no one is safe.
My name is Amy Gumm—and I'm the other girl from Kansas. I've been recruited by the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked. I've been trained to fight. And I have a mission: Remove the Tin Woodman's heart. Steal the Scarecrow's brain. Take the Lion's courage. And—Dorothy must die.

Oz is Twisted
Not just a reimagining like McGuire where the wicked we know is good but the good we know is really wicked. Fantastic, fresh perspective...but the second half of the book slows down tremendously in comparison to the first half. The last 30 pages are totally worth making it through. Worth a re-read. :)
Compelling and Interesting
This book is captivating on so many levels. The plot is incredible. The story is well thought out and keeps you interested and wanting more by the second!
Are you a good witch or a bad witch?
Not sure...but I know that this is an excellent read. An excellent and somewhat dark take of the lovable original. Definitely a recommended read and I can't wait for more.
