Another terrific riff on the Wizard of Oz, which is seeming very pale indeed after Gregory Maguire's handling of the characters. Oz a very dark complicated place...

This book wrapped up the Wicked Years series wonderfully. Though I personally prefer Wicked more than its following books, this was still enjoyable.

A perfect end to finalize everything that had happened in the series. I recommend that you read the previous book to really experience the style and feel of each book. This book has become one of my favorites because it surprised me with its length and well developed story line. I believe it was worth reading and does a great job of flowing through different topics and times. I believe the book picks up with the introduction of Tip, midway through, and from that point I could not put this book down. This book accomplishes what every great series should make its readers do - Feel.

Maguire's final book in the fantastic Wicked Years series. While it isn't strictly required to read the books in order, I recommend that you do. The Oz in this universe isn't the magical place of Judy Garland. Political intrigue, racism, war and palace coupes figure into the narrative. Basically, this is a very adult Oz. This novel deals with Rain, the grandaughter of the Wicked Witch of the West, and through her various bloodlines heir to many thrones in Oz, which of course makes her a threat to the people sitting on those thrones now. Very enjoyable series, and the ending leaves a little opening should Maguire opt to tell more stories in this Oz.
