Publication Date: March 14, 2017

Summary (from Goodreads):

Ding dong—Dorothy is dead.

I watched as the Emerald Palace crumbled to the ground, burying Dorothy, the Girl Who Rode the Cyclone, under the rubble. And now that the rightful ruler, Ozma, has been restored to the throne…

Oz is finally free.

My name is Amy Gumm. You might remember me as the othergirl from Kansas. When a tornado whisked me away to the magical land of Oz, I was given a mission: Dorothy must die.

But it turns out girls from Kansas are harder to kill than we look.

Now the Road of Yellow Brick is leading me away from Oz to the dark world of Ev, where I have a new, powerful enemy to deal with: the Nome King. And—surprise—he has a gingham-clad bride.

With my magical shoes and a shrinking group of allies, I have one final chance to fulfill my mission, and save not only what’s left of Oz, but Kansas, too. As the line between Good and Wicked blurs even further, I have to find a way to get rid of Dorothy once and for all—without turning into a monster myself.

Dorothy once said there’s no place like home. Can I stop her from destroying mine?

Amazon “Book Depository


I have been dying for this final instalment in the Dorothy Must Die series since I finished Yellow Brick War. This is one of my favourite series since it is so full of sass and creativity. I was originally thinking that this would be a trilogy, but I’m glad we get another book. I can’t wait to get back into Oz this spring!

    I’ve heard mixed things about this series but have managed to still purchase the first two books in the series. I plan on getting around to them eventually and STILL am in love with the cover of the novella about the lion!

  2. Jaime Lynn says:

    I had no clue that this was a four book series… I haven’t read any of the books yet, but now I am glad that I held off. I can sit down with all four and finish it up now!

    … when did book 4 get written? I swear, it feels like I JUST saw book 1. SOBS. So many books, so little time 🙁
