Goodreads Synopsis:

Amy Gumm's mission to take down Dorothy Gale is not going according to plan. Dorothy has found a way to bridge the worlds of Oz and Kansas, and if the power-hungry dictator of Oz has her way, Kansas will be destroyed forever. Now Amy has to team up with the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked to save her home, restore the balance between the magic and non magic worlds, maybe get the guy - and kill that not-so-sweet Kansas farm girl once and for all.

Book Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts:

I was disappointed by the second book. It felt a lot like a filler book in which nothing much happened. I'm still intrigued to see where the story goes but at the moment I fear that it might go downhill...

Thank you so much to Jonathan Ball Publishers for providing me with a copy of this book! Just a small disclaimer for those reading this review. I have received this book in exchange for an honest review. Please note that this does not affect my opinion in any way. All thoughts are my own.

Writing Thoughts:

If you would like to see my thoughts on the author's writing, you can find them here and here. 

Plot Thoughts:

Gosh, I don't actually know how I really feel about this book. A lot more happened in this book. We got a lot more action and a lot more development in the actual story line. We got a bit more background on certain characters. However, there are definitely some inconsistencies. With that being said, I did enjoy certain scenes in this book. 

Character Thoughts:

Amy is not one of my top favourite characters but she is very realistic. She isn't sprinkled with the dust of perfection like most protagonists are. She deals with a lot of internal problems. I still don't get her relationship with Nox because in the second book she wanted nothing more than to be just friends with him but in this one she was expecting a little more right from the beginning.

Final Thoughts:

Overall, I think this book had its ups and its downs. Whilst I like consistent writing, I really hoped that the writing would develop a little more. A lot more happened in this book but I still found some inconsistencies. There were a lot more scenes that I enjoyed. Whilst Amy is not one of my top favourite characters, she is incredibly real. Thank you so much to Jonathan Ball Publishers for providing me with a copy of this book!

Yours in Reading,
