In this epic prequel to The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, young sorceress Glinda and her friends battle the tyrannical Wicked Witches and learn the true cost and responsibility of freedom.
About the Hidden History Set against the backdrop of a dynamic magical land powered by dreams, the Hidden History of Oz explores the characters introduced, but never explained, by L. Frank Baum. True to the original version of Oz captured in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz novel, this saga reaches into mysteries and events that shaped Oz, and couples them with dreams and real-world history to craft powerful meaning into the whimsical land Baum created. In every land, there is that history which is celebrated ... and that history which is hidden. Discover the adventure, the intrigue, the magic and dreams behind the name in The Hidden History of Oz.
About the Witch Queens Fifteen year old Glinda is destined to one day become the most powerful sorceress in the land of Oz, but that day is still a long way off. Today she has much more pressing concerns - picking the perfect dress and making sure that her hair is just wild enough to drive her sorceress mother crazy during the Abracadabra Bazaar. But Glinda's red-haired rebellion sets off a series of events that vaults the Wicked Witches to power and embroils the land in war. Glinda's fiery red hair and matching temper make her some powerful enemies. Kalinya rules the land of the East, but hungers for greater power. Ondri-baba desires the West and controls the Sandy Armies. Mombi seeks political power and allies herself with the new king of the Emerald Lands, Pastoria. The lines of power are clearly drawn, and the freedom of the entire land of Oz hangs in the balance.
Driven from her home in the North, running for her life, Glinda and her few friends are no match for the allied Wicked Witches and their Sandy Armies. Not even the Winged Monkeys, slaves to a powerful magic, can turn the tide in this war. The dream of freedom comes from a mysterious wizard from pre-Civil War America, and his stories of revolution and liberty. These dreams spread and the inspired army grows daily. The subsequent struggle for control of Oz shakes the entire foundations of power. In the wake of the upheaval, a city of emerald is built on principles of individual freedom, liberty, and responsibility.
