The End of Oz, essentially the ending, really had me disappointed. Don't get me wrong, the series was amazing! I read the all 4 books within weeks but I felt like the ending was rushed into the last few chapters. It was like she dragged out the beginning of the book then the climax of the book (which was towards the end) was kind of like a second thought. If you read the book I think you will get what I'm saying, but I don't want to spoil it for anyone! Then the very ending?! It ends on a cliff hanger, which I hate if there isn't anymore books. Other than that I highly recommend this series!

Having read the four book series and a few of the novellas, I found the plot of these books intriguing and fun - a story beyond Dorthy's original adventure set in current day, why not! While the main character is likeable and the story continues to deepen throughout the series, the author does not keep the details in check. For example, when Amy sees her mom in the portrait (or pool, can't remember which) in the first book, she was getting her 6 month sober token, but when she finally gets to see her mom in the third book, only a month had past. The author's creative story makes this book series a good read, but if you're a stickler for the details, you might be disappointed.

3.5 stars Well it tried to make a comeback. About on par with the second book, but nowhere near as good as the first. Beats the third book that almost cost me my interest in the series. I do like how the Nome King's role was more tied in and I loved the appearance of Langwidere and the Wheelers. That added a fun element and now has me wanting to both see the Return to Oz and start reading the original books again. And for that I thank Danielle Paige. I am not sure with how it ended and the domino effect created in how Dorothy is finally thwarted. Not to mention the cliffhanger ending that can be an end or open us up for more. I just don't know. I wanted more explained into what happened to Oz, GLinda, Glamora and the Order at the end and I feel life that wasn't answered to my satisfaction. So many things I want to say on the end but cannot without spoiling it. It is not a bad ending, just not enough explained.

Enjoyed reading each of them. The only drawbacks was at times it was overly gruesome and since this is directed to a teen audience it would have been preferable to exclude teenage sex. Would have given 5 stars if not for these 2 things.

This has been a very good series, but as it dragged out, it has begun to feel flat. The whole series has been based on Amy Gumm fighting to defeat Dorothy and Glinda, to end their reign of terror in Oz. That’s all been done. Sure new challenges have come up, but now with this new novel, a new villain has appeared out of the mix, the nome king. There just wasn’t enough set-up here to who this new villain was. Sure there’s some origin to who he was, his place in the grand scheme of Oz, but his connection is loose at best. It did lay out some good ground work for the ending of Dorothy but it lacked substance. To be perfectly blunt, this novel could have been combined with the previous one, Yellow Brick War. While the idea of exploring the lands beyond Oz is interesting, if that was the route, Paige could have ended the series and explored a whole new trilogy to explore all the dangers of Ev. It really is such an interesting aspect of the novel to go to this new land that is Oz’s polar opposite, a land of darkness and corruption. It’s an interesting area to explore. There’s just not enough substance to make this novel work on its own, even with an interesting villain like the Nome King. But again, he’s pretty much only introduced at the end of the previous novel and then given the role of main antagonists in this novel. It just doesn’t seem flushed out at all. Despite that however, the ending was well done. The way that Amy looks to the past, to who she was, to who she became, to everything that happened in life, it’s a great look at character growth. And, ultimately, her character growth was what allowed her to finally defeat Dorothy and save Oz. It’s still not enough to make this novel feel like anything more than an afterthought. Amy’s a great character, and it’s great that she gets her happy ending, but the novel doesn’t feel strong enough to end the series.
