As much as I loved Wicked, I had a hard time getting into this book. If I’m right, I do believe this is the 3rd book in the Oz series. I was entranced with the 1st (Wicked), entertained by the 2nd (Son of a Witch), but this 3rd one. . .was redundant. Every other chapter just seemed to reiterate the fact that the Cowardly Lion was indeed- cowardly, and every other synonym to describe him as such. It did pick up toward the end; making me wish I had read the books chronologically back to back instead of years between. All in all, I do believe it was a great ending tying everything together, while leaving possibility for another adventure. I just feel it’s a shame that it took 300 pages to get there.
3 out of 5 stars
