Taste of Tuesday | The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige

wicked will rise

In this sequel to the New York Times bestselling Dorothy Must Die, who is good—and who is actually 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.


Having just plowed through the three novelas attached to the series, I have to admit I’m very excited for the sequel to ‘Dorothy Must DIE!’ to come out. Paige has crafted a fantastic sub-world within the Oz that L. Frank Baum created in 1900, and she takes a world with so much depth, and adds even more to it.

With the first book ending where it did, with Amy and Nox being ripped apart having just shared their first kiss, and Amy being set up to continue on her quest to kill Dorothy and restore Oz to its former glory, is a perfect casting off point for the second book. While the first book did drag in parts, in order to build the story for the coming books, I think it’s an interesting way to approach the coming sequels and how they will shape, and forever change the world of Oz.
