Good is Wicked and Wicked is Good in the New York Times bestselling Dorothy Must Die series!
This digital original novella is the ninth and final installment in the series’ prequel arc. It reveals the mysterious backstory of Ozma—and how she went from fairy princess to the rightful ruler of Oz.
Young Mombi was never the best witch in Oz. She wasn’t the most talented, or the most powerful. But when the Wizard knocks on her door holding a baby girl who needs protection, Mombi agrees to take the job. She casts one powerful, surprising spell—hiding the baby where no one would find her. Years later, a boy named Pete goes on a journey to the Emerald City, where he learns the truth about his true identity…and his role in Oz’s destiny.
Danielle Paige delivers a dark and compelling reimagining of L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, perfect for fans of Cinder by Marissa Meyer, Beastly by Alex Flinn, and Wicked by Gregory Maguire, and follows some of literature’s most beloved characters as their lives intertwine to bring about the downfall of Oz.

I like the idea of this series, but listen to this: FRANK L. BAUM DID NOT WRITE ONLY ONE OZ BOOK. I'm sad to say that you can look it up- Baum already wrote a book with this plot. It's called The Marvelous Land of Oz. It is about a boy named Tip who discovers that he is really Princess Ozma of Oz, enchanted by a witch named Mombi. Sorry, but I would reccomend contacting the author of this book if you see this. M
