In this dark, action-packed third book in the New York Times bestselling Dorothy Must Die series, Amy Gumm—the new girl from Kansas—must do everything in her power to save Kansas, kill Dorothy, and make Oz a free land once more.

Amy Gumm’s mission to take down Dorothy Gale is not going according to plan. Dorothy has found a way to bridge the worlds of Oz and Kansas, and if the power-hungry dictator of Oz has her way, Kansas will be destroyed forever. Now, Amy has to team up with the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked to save her home, restore the balance between the magic and nonmagic worlds, maybe get the guy—and kill that not-so-sweet Kansas farm girl once and for all.

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.


I loved the first book in this series, Dorothy Must Die, so much but the second book, The Wicked Will Rise, didn’t really do it for me. I was hoping Yellow Brick War would save the series for me but it didn’t.
The plot for this series was very drawn out and what little plot there was in Yellow Brick War was rushed. I really think this series should have been only two books. I wasn’t a fan of the the plot for the second book and Yellow Brick War was no different.
There was such a lack of character development and I’m really disappointed by that.
The writing style of this series is really good and the core concept is amazing. The first book really shows the concept at its best.
Overall, I loved the first book but the last two in the series kind of sucked. I didn’t like the plot of Yellow Brick War and it was so rushed. There wasn’t any character development and there was a ton of opportunities to really give the characters depth and development.
