Review: I was so ready for this book! It feels like it has been forever since the first one came out.
The wicked will rise was very fast paced but was also able to still to pull me into it right off the bat. I really liked how Paige is able to make me feel as if I was in the plot along with the other characters. She does such a great job to keep everything moving along, while at the same time hitting you with all the answers to the questions that the first book brought up. It also seems that this book has a lot more of Paige’s humor in it. Which in the long run made the book even better.
The characters got more depth to them in this sequel, mostly due to more focused and detailed to moments with them. Such as Amy, at first she was just this chick no one knew or really cared about and she didn’t even know herself. Which a lot of young people can relate to, because that’s just a part in life every person will hit. Anyway, in this book you get to see Amy come into who she really is and what she needs to do for herself. Even though at the end of The wicked will rise, it means we just have to wait for the third book in the series, to see what Amy chooses for herself.
I know for one thing, I can not wait for what’s in store for Amy.
4 out of 5 stars.

Summary: In this dark, high-octane sequel to the New York Times bestselling Dorothy Must Die, Amy Gumm must do everything in her power to kill Dorothy and free Oz.
To make Oz a free land again, Amy Gumm was given a mission: remove the Tin Woodman’s heart, steal the Scarecrow’s brain, take the Lion’s courage, and then Dorothy must die….
But Dorothy still lives. Now the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked has vanished, and mysterious Princess Ozma might be Amy’s only ally. As Amy learns the truth about her mission, she realizes that she’s only just scratched the surface of Oz’s past—and that Kansas, the home she couldn’t wait to leave behind, may also be in danger. In a place where the line between good and evil shifts with just a strong gust of wind, who can Amy trust—and who is really Wicked?
