This is going to be a real short post guys, but I just wanted to fill you guys in on my newest find. If any of you knew me personally, you would know that above all other literature "fantasy fandoms", I am obsessed with all things Oz. I'm a 22 year old dude who is proud to say that he has read well over half of the 80-someodd books that have been published in the Ozian Cannon (official/unofficial). I am even currently learning to speak/read in Russian as a course in school and one of my goals is to be able to read the numerous, very famous, Russian Ozian books to continue my knowledge of Oz. Well, it just so happened that tonight I was searching for a new book to read and I came across a title Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige, I didn't have a cover picture or any information about the book but as SOON as I realized it was THAT Dorothy, I was sold. That being said, I am beginning Dorothy Must Die this evening and as excited as I am about reading it, I'll probably finish it tomorrow! This also falls in perfect timing because this book was JUST released on April 1, 2014! I am in the process of contacting Mrs. Paige as we speak to try to get some more information about the series and to connect with her! I will hopefully be posting a review VERY soon! Here's a synopsis and a cover to get you guys interested!
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?
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 the yellow brick road, though—but
even that's crumbling.
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.
Then and only then—Dorothy must die!
This book has me all kinds of excited for this newest adventure to "the land over the rainbow"! Be on the look out for some major reviewing and freaking out about this new series right here on OneGuysGuideToGoodReads!
