Welcome to the other side of the rainbow. Here there’s danger around every corner, and magic shoes won’t be able to save you.
Is it just me, or are the books getting shorter? To be exact, Dorothy Must Die was about 450 pages! Okay, no matter. Quality, not quantity. And I must say, this book was really good! Filled with action and suspense, Amy's mission finally comes to its peak.
Mild spoiler: Amy's taken three books to complete her mission. I admire her perseverance. She hasn't let anything come between her target, not anyone. Of course, she has had a few moments where she was tempted to leave everything behind, but she's determined to finish things.
With Amy and the Quadrant back in Kansas, it was pretty amusing to see how Amy would fit back into her old life for the time being. Being missing for several months doesn't really make it any easier. Things are completely different from book one: her mother has turned over a new leaf, Madison is no longer a spiteful bully, and oher minor details. Amy had trouble fitting back in, especially with her mind preoccupied with more important things (i.e. the shoes
Speaking of Nox, I'm still not quite so sure what his relationship is with Amy. There was quite a lot of bonding in The Wicked Will Rise, but not so much in this book. It seems as if they are interested in each other, but only mildly. Sure, they kissed, but what does that mean? The chemistry that once was there has now dissipated.
After what we thought was a nice resolution, there comes a new foe. Well, we knew of the new foe a couple pages into the book. I was kind of worried when I was nearing the end of the book and there was no reference to this guy and how they were planning to defeat him. That's when I realised that there would 100% be another book. What?! I thought it was a trilogy. Not that I'm complaining, of course. :)
All in all, I thought this was quite an exciting read that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I'm eagerly waiting for the next book!
