Dorothy Must Die
Danielle Page
Expected Publication: April 1, 2014
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?

Sure, 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.
What happened?
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!
Well, here's something that's different and quirky and fun. Make no mistake. I mean, I've seen hundreds of different takes on Alice in Wonderland but Oz has never been as much adapted as Wonderland.

  1. I never liked Wizard of Oz that much so I'll probably skip this one. I hope you'll get it soon and love it.

  2. This sounds oddly interesting. I mean, a little... perverse reversion, I'm getting all kinds of horrible ideas about the original story going horribly wrong. If I'm not picking this up myself, I know my boyfriend will, because he LOVES Oz. Thanks a lot for sharing this!
    My WoW, and I have a giveaway running to celebrate my job.
