OZ: the Dark World[Dorothy Must Die & The Wicked Will Rise]

Never thought that I’d have my perception of OZ turned upside down until I read these Books. In the first Amy Gumm a girl from modern day Kansas was transported to OZ by a cyclone but this was not the OZ we remembered: Dorothy is now a wicked, power crazed witch, and so is Glinda who wants the magic all to herself, Ozma is rendered incompetent and the three companions are all twisted by dark magic. The only allies she can count on the is the revolutionary order of the Wicked consisting of: Mombi the jailer of Ozma, Glamora twin sister to Glinda and Gert the former good witch of the north. In the second book having failed in her attempt to assassinate Dorothy, Amy is told that the only way to destroy Dorothy is to grab the three things that the Wizard gave them: the Scarecrow’s Brains, the Tinman’s Heart, and the Lion’s Courage.
