    UPDATE#3 I'VE READ IT AND ITS ACTUALLY REAL GOOD SO I'LL LEAVE YOU WITH A LIL REVIEW LMAO Ok ok alright This book was so much smaller than Dorothy Must Die and of course Dorothy Must Die was slightly better but it isn't THAT AS a disappointment like people say it is I mean yeah it was short and kinda rushed But can we say CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT??God Amy's character development was actually real interesting in this book omg and unlike some people i think I loved it I was unsure at first and at some parts as I was like guurl what even are you doing? But then I understood what the author was going with it And y'all need to admit it was actually unique So Amy is neither good nor bad in this book And that's what I like She doesn't always make the right decisions and sometimes she screws up real bad but she keeps fighting bc she is challenging HERSELF And also its quite realistic as no people are completely on the good side or in the wicked side and this just prooves it I don't know about y'all but this sure happens to me; when I'm reading a book or something and this character is having a fight and has a chance to kill the creature or something real fiercely and they are blinded by rage I'm on the back like YAS GIRL YOU GO GO BEST FRIEND THAT'S MY BEST FRIEND THAT'S MY BESTFRIEND RIP HIS ASS APART And I'm like 100% on their side but when a thought comes to their head like No this is not good I'm left like disappointed ya know? Idk every character needs a wicked and a good side a balance Not always being a super goodie goodie I put everyone before myself Idk its weird and I know it shouldn't be like that or idk but what I'm trying to say is that is quite interesting Amy has a wicked side and actually shows it ya know?Lmao I don't even know if it just happens to me i think it does Sorry ignore that But either way final thoughts I was highly entertained with this book I mean it might not be the best written and best paced book of them all But it kept me turning the pages so that counts I guess Also the plot in this book wasn't really written?? I mean I don't have any idea where the plot is going or what EVEN is the plot there's still SO MANY questions and they just keep bringing and without answers But at least It kept me entertained And I'm talking about me laughing out loud and biting my fingernails whenever i read something I swear And finally the ending I srsly needed to re read the ending like 4 times Is2g It was all thrown at us like a rock and omg what EVEN God still I can't even understand it Anyways I overall enjoyed it its not like its unbearable and I read it in one seating so yeah;4 real wicked stars toAmy's wickedness and fierceness to Dorothy Gale To Glinda The Good Mombi Queen Lulu Oz The Wizard That Ending For the laughs the overall enjoyment 4 stars probs just for the last 100 pages Oh look just like Dorothy Must Die The Endings man The Endings Is it bad all my faves were the wicked ones?? omg 1 stars to Nox that intro Pete Ozma Nox Ollie Wingless Ones Nox Those Rainbows Shits and did I say Nox? UPDATE#2 its finally out and im pumped to read this WOOUPDATE#1 I have mixed feelings about reading this because all of the drama surrounding the author but I've came to a conclusion that I actually read a book for its content not if the author is good or bad Even though it does actually counts if the author if the author misbehaves does it really matter? First of all It wasn't even HER deal she just like agreed to the other author's idea By the way that doesn't mean that I also agree because I completely don't I think it is foolish and unreasonable But also you all are judging her in one single opinion she had and completely ignoring her actual writing skills which is why im here for this is her book and it doesn't matter what kind of publicist she has or her life besides it because I couldn't care lessBut also that's everyones deal if they want to support the author as an AUTHOR or a series as a SERIES see the difference I like to think that's why we all are here for the actual content We rate a book for its content not the author we read a book for its content not for the author so I don't see the logic of people hating in this book before even reading it But at the end of the day every person is different and can see this situation different some people might think the author's personality and ideals are important than the actual book and thats alright I'm just stating my opinion and saying that i would read this book because I truly enjoyed the first one and I have no reasons to not keep reading the series

    Evil will always catch up with you That's why you have to get to it firstMurder magic and unicorns Throw in a sassy female lead and an à la Wonderland version of Oz and you've got The Wicked Will RiseRemember when I said I really disliked the humor in Dorothy Must Die? I'm happy to say that this book was a thousand times less annoying Amy's feisty attitude in this book was a lot realistic and I felt like the things she said were things I could have said myself in certain situations and you get this fantastic feeling when you see yourself in a character even just a bit She made snide comments and snarky remarks all the time another bad habit I could totally relate toIt wasn't just Amy that I found realistic but also how most of the characters acted under pressure You know how insane it is when characters are still able to think straight during life or death situations? Yeah it's crazy I appreciated how the characters here acted the way I would've in those times going insane or making stupid choices It may sound weird to like it when characters make some idiotic decisions but it's refreshing to not be baffled by seemingly perfect characters I like them flawed thanksWhile I approve of how the characters reacted I didn't love most of the characters and their relationships as in general A lot of them seemed inconsistent or hot and cold to say the least Like for example one minute Nox is being sappy and sweet and the next minute he's being a sissy It's a bit frustratingThe romance was really bothersome as well This book would be a thousand times better and irritating without it Honestly 90% of my eye rolls in this book were because of the romance It was just completely unnecessary and there was no chemistry between them at all Plus I don't want to read about Amy constantly pining for Nox and thinking about him even in the most dire situationsOh there's also a sort of love triangle but not really I can't go into details but that aspect of the book was really awkward as wellOnce you've traveled to the darker side of the rainbow you've reached the end of the lineBut if there's one reason you have to read this book definitely do it for the fantastic and whimsical world building Paige did a fantastic job re imagining Oz and giving it such magical twists And really I was sold on the mere mention of unicorns because unicorns are fabulousWe delved deeper into Oz both it's happier and darker parts so there was a nice balance of settings I love descriptive imagery and Paige definitely nailed that I just want to live in this crazy version of Oz forever Or I just really want a unicorndeath What I liked about it was that there were a lot of smaller battle scenes scattered out throughout the book and then there's a really big one during the climaxThe ending of this book was also spot on I have to say that I wasn't expecting all the twists that came around in the end It's going to give you that whoa why didn't I think of that? feeling And then you just keep turning the pages and you suddenly realize that the book's overI would recommend The Wicked Will Rise to anyone looking for a unique take on The Wizard of Oz a action packed and creative version of it and who wouldn't mind a few mildly annoying bitsThere's also a giveaway and book photography session for this on my blog Deadly Darlings This is also featured in my first Tumblr post if you want to check it outactual rating 35 stars

    35 starsThe books in this series are so fun to read but for some reason I find them easy to put down? I'm not really sure why as I really like the characters and I love the world as well but I just find myself putting the books down a lot Definitely keen for the next one after that ending though

    This was a great sequel Sometimes you never know how a second book is going to go Luckily this one was awesome It has the perfect blend of darkness mixed with humor There was character growth with Amy She has a dark side to her that is hidden away and there were tiny glimpses of it aching to come out so I can't wait to see what direction her character goes in in the next book Review on my blog

    Kind of ironic that the person she's defending basically said I'll get you my pretty and your little dog too

    45 Stars When you claim your name what will it be? I think there’s a certain standard in which second books are expected to live up to In no way is it fair because especially with me the first book in a series is always leagues above the rest it’s just the way it is When I fall in love with a series it’s no light thing I become obsessed and nothing is likely to please me any time soon That being said I have high standards After devouring a 100% 5 star book I want the same superiority of action and angst in book two Sadly though this rarely happens And I’m just going to come right out and say it Compared to book one a now absolute favorite of mine this book paled in comparison Some people spend their whole lives searching for the one thing that they can do to say I changed the world I had found that thing I might not be able to accomplish it but I was going to die trying So call me selfish Second books aren’t all bad though They get a bad rap sure but there are many good things that come from them as well Sometimes it’s the opposite actually There have been a few times when the second book by far outshines its predecessor and makes up for boring build ups with no results In this case though I definitely was missingsomething And while that’s not always a problem it was in this case for meIt was frustrating that everyone was so convinced that I had this great potential to be evil when all I’d done was show up get thrown in the dungeon by Dorothy and then follow the Order’s instructions pretty much exactly I’d fought for what I thought was right For what I believed in And now even people like Lulu people who were supposed to be on the same side as me seemed suspicious of me because of it It all felt a little unfairOne The action My God I missed the action There was plenty I suppose but the level of intensity was severely lacking based on what I know this author can do For example in book one not every scene was full of fights and battles but there was just this level of dread with each passing chapter that brought forth a sense of doom and foreboding that made you feel as though something terrible could happen at any minutewhereas in this story it was all build up It was book two hell if I’m being honest With all that foreboding and dread in book one when a battle scene would actually happen it was like when you poke a hole in a balloon it was as though this pressure that had been pressing down on your chest was finally released and you could just breathe because it had finally happened But it was so intense that you didn’t care if you were breathing at all anyway because wasn’t this exactly what you’d been waiting for? It was the sweetest of evils In this book while the action scenes were epic in their own right they were few and far between and I almost feltsadwhen they happened because I knew there wasn’t much left of the bookand I never felt my breath release like I wanted Which brings me to my next pointI may not have known how I was doing it but every time I rose back up reshaping myself into my own form I knew what I was doing when I was under there I was touching the darkness Two The length Talk about wanting to cryI almost started bawling no joke when I saw how short this book was It was barely even if at all half the length of the first book And the first book was The perfect length by the way It was perfect because of how wonderfully paced everything was every little part had ample time to unwind to grow to pull you deeper you never wanted to stop reading Never once did it feel rushed overdone drawn out NOTHING I fell hard and I fell fast and I fell deeper under it’s spell I STILL think about book one and my heart STILL goes into overdrive as my stomach simultaneously drops out of the bottom of me This is the biggest downfall for book two I have to say The chapters were way too short You would just start to get into a scene and then it would be over and we would have to move on There were times where it was nicely paced but most of the time it didn’t feelquite rightwhich was shocking to me after seeing how amazing book one’s pacing was And if I’m being completely honest I’m pretty bitter about the length of this book I love this author this series for life but I feel cheated I was ecstatic to pick up book two only to find out that we were getting such a short story And I know I know this is a bridge book for the final storybut never has a book felt like a literal bridge before because this is exactly what this is bridging to the fanatical last story I will be a happy little lark when book three comes out but for now let me just poutDespite what I’d said to Dorothy’s Fantasm in the Fog of Doubt and as wicked as I knew I could be when I had to I had one weakness kindnessAnd kindness is a weakness I can see that now But it’s a weakness I’m still not sure I’d want to give up entirelyThree The World Building I didn’t think I’d ever say this in a review because I really could give two shits less butI wanted I don’t know what but It was great it was wonderful butyeah That’s all All over the place when you looked a little closely traces of the city’s former grandeur remained Amidst all the wreckage the streets had a sheen that I realized was coming from millions of scattered jewels emeralds obviously but diamonds and rubies and amethysts too Here and there pools of gold melted and then hardened again like puddles lingering after a thunderstormFour The romance Believe me when I wholeheartedly say I LIVE FOR NOX AND AMY’S RELATIONSHIP I ship them so hard Especially Nox He is justugh But that’s why this is partially in the negative category I wanted There I SAID IT I really truly wholeheartedly needed I craved it I ached for it and when it finally was within in my clutches it felt like it was over too soon See reason two above I am still a pissy pink elephant about this Every little bit of the romance was perfection Wellor Nox was But I think I’m going to put him in his own little categoryjust because I can My point? The romance while exactly what I wanted inexplicably Just Wasn’t Enough It was like I was entering a world of shadows I wasn’t sure how I was doing it and I wasn’t sure where I was going when I disappeared like that only that wherever it was it was cold and foreign and deadly silent From down there everything was hazy and slow motion and I was outside reality looking up into it from the darkness like gazing up through a layer of black muddy water So as you can see while I love this story it had detrimental issues that stunted my enjoyment And isn’t that the best way to describe a short story? Choppy stunted without the growth I so desperately needed? But here comes my favorite part The GOOD Once upon a time a girl named Amy Gumm had come to Oz on a tornado She had fought hard; she had been loyal and fierce She had done things she’d never in a million years imagined that she wouldOne Amy Amy might possibly be my favorite heroine ever at the moment I think this second book sold her a little short if I’m being completely honest but I can’t forget how epic she was in the firstand how epic she continues to be She’s in the midst of an internal battle within herself that continues to confuse and conflict her She has conquered the use of magic by learning from Nox and the rest of the order from book onebut this is exactly how it all started with Dorothy isn’t it? She got a taste of the power and then it wasn’t enough She wanted and and until eventually ruling an entire kingdom wasn’t enough It wasn’t enough to control everyone she needed them to fear and worship her as well And now the dark magic is making it’s way to Amy and she struggles to stifle it with each new battle and after every new hard decision is made She is becoming someone she doesn’t recognizeand I loved every minute of her internal conflicts And perhaps the brightest point of her life her most grounded ally is the adorable warlock Nox She had been both good and wicked and everything in between She had been both at once too until it was very hard for her to even tell the difference anyTwo Nox My beautiful messy haired boy Nox He is just so wonderful I absolutely adored him from book one until now he has left such a mark on my heart I can hardly think about this series without getting all mushy and sighing when I think about this poor orphaned boy who fights for the only thing he has ever known to strive for his freedom from Dorothy But what he doesn’t know? What happens after Who will he become? What will he do? What will his purpose be? We get to see a vulnerable side to Nox in this book and I devoured each and every moment he was a part of I almost would go so far as to say I didn’t think he was treated the way he should have beenI’m very protective of my boy A beacon of light for Amy’s impending darkness her voice of reason and her greatest ally and friend Nox just like in book one stole the show I am obsessed with him and CANNOT WAIT for of him in book three I need his HEA My last glimpse of Nox back in the city kept flashing through my mind his dark always messy hair his broad shoulders and skinny sinewy arms The determined tilt of his jaw and that look of almost arrogant pride The anger that was always coiled deep in his chest finally ready to burst out and strike down everything that stood in his way all of it to save Oz the home that he loved No not just that To save me tooThree The villains I love these guys They are complex They back up what they say They do what’s best for THEM They are truly evil You don’t get false threats with any of them They say what they mean and they mean what they say You will feel the pain You will hurt You will be upset by what they do they sugar coat nothing They are the true definition of eviland they blur the lines of hatelikelove because they are truly addicting in their ruthlessness Wicked Wickeder Wickedest who would you want to go up against? I’m not so sure I Know Who I AM” I said again confidently this time with each word bringing forth every bit of the power the rage and yeah the wickedness that had been building inside of me since I was just a little girl “And I’m willing to fight for it”Four Everything I don’t have time to mention The beautiful descriptions The amazing world and everything that pulls me so deeply out of reality when I’m in this world there’s no where else I’d rather be That’s so hard to achieve these days The writing it’s so amazing How every little detail matters Amy’s inner monologues The vivid imagination that goes into each and every momentthe list goes on and on There is no end to how engrossing this series is The rainbows washed over me It was like I was being spun in some Willy Wonka version of a washing machine A neon palette swirled around me as I tumbled hot pink electric blue candy apple red grape soda purple and every color imaginable in between all of them zooming downward into infinity in a twisting death defying flume carrying me faster than even seemed possible So while this was not what I wanted it to be I still loved it I love this series this world these characters I am obsessed with them Be it good or evil each and every character is so addicting We even get of the lovable Pete in this one And in a super weird way I get so excited when Dorothy appears She is so sickeningly sweetit’s endearing She might even be my favorite villain EVER Amy’s journey is one that I can’t seem to get out of my head and she and Nox’s relationship brings me to a whole new level of fangirling Maybe that’s why I had so many things I was disappointed aboutI just needed so much of what I loved and I didn’t get it So without making this even longer than it really is just know that I am going CRAZY knowing I have to wait for book three It might just kill mebut it’s one of those wonderful pains you know it’s worth the wait For of my reviews please visit

    Well that was downright excellent I AM SO PLEASED If you read my review of Dorothy Must Die you'll know I confessed to being wary of this series for umTWELVE WHOLE MONTHS Gah Why did I avoid it? What was going on in my scrambled little brain? This series is glorious and I love the sequel just as much as the firstWe've already been introduced to the creepy masterpiece that is Ozso now we get to go in deeper There is a LOT of world exploring here New characters and new settings YAAAAY Again it reminds me of Splintered because it takes little snippets from the original tale and just explodes them into something else I LOVE IT It's so imaginative and creative Just from having handkerchiefs that turn into tents to having people explode in showers of glitter to having beds that sort of cocoon and massage you wantwantwant It's rich and lush and so well written But um I don't ever want to go to OzSure Dorothy is on the run now but things are just going CRAZY I love how the book dabbled in grey areas of who's wicked and who's wickeder? Yes wickeder is totally a word Deal The Wicked Witches are supposed to be the good ones but they do some dubious things aaaand who is Amy supposed to trust? IT IS CONFUSING AND GREAT TO READ ABOUT As always I love Amy Her snark is a little toned down in this one but a she's freaking tired after always being on the run and cutting things with her shiny black knife and b she's stressed out I missed the humour but her internal monologue is amazing Just the words she chooses and the similes? It was always perfect Until view spoilerStar hide spoiler
