This is a must read for fans of the Wicked series. This last installment finds Oz in the middle of a civil war with the Emerald City against the Munchkinlanders with our favorite main characters, Liir, Candle, Brr the Cowardly Lion and Rain, all caught in the middle. Loose ends are tied up as we learn what has happened to characters in the past like Trism and Lady Glinda. This book is hard to put down as one question is answered you then are led to others. Most, but not all, of the questions that I had about what had happend to whom was answered by the end of this installment. And there were certainly surprises that I didn't see coming. All in all, I loved this one. It grabbed you from the begining and filled in most of the blanks along the way.
