The Wicked Will Rise

(Dorothy Must Die #2)

by Danielle Paige

Publisher: HarperCollins

Expected Publication: March 31st 2015

Synopsis(from Goodreads):

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?

Why am I waiting for it?

I haven’t read any The Wizard of Oz adaptations and this sounds really good. I haven’t yet read Dorothy Must Die,  but I plan to read with by the next month. Besides I’ve only heard good things about this series.
