Full Review on my blog!
The first book was a bit more entertaining, but I still really enjoyed this one! This was a great sequel!
One of the things that I really love about The Wicked Will Rise is how strong the main character, Amy Gumm, is. Amy Gumm is a really good heroine. Flawed, as expected but I really saw her develop in this book; discovering more about herself, and realizing who she is and who she will become. I loved how she went through with what she believed in. I know, I know that probably sounds stupid but still …. :c Amy has these amazing powers that are connected to darkness, and didn’t try to stop using them, but rather welcomed them and she tried her best to control it.
I love the relationship between Amy and Nox, I liked how the story didn’t revolve around them which was nice; it was literally perfect.
Throughout the beginning of the book, it seems like all is going according to plan. Get the Tin Man’s heart, the Lion’s tail, and the Scarecrow’s brain before she can properly kill Dorothy, restore the magic to Oz, right? Wrong. When the reader least expects it, BAMMM! Major plot twist. This isn’t a typical plot twist that will surprise you and then you’ll get over it in a few minutes. No, no, no! The plot twists in this series so far are very powerful, and amazing and will make you LOVE the series!
I know this book seems really short, but it’s jam-packed with suspense and action. Danielle Paige does an amazing job describing Oz. I absolutely LOVEEEE how she includes the same landmarks, like the yellow brick road, the Emerald City, which really makes reading so enjoyable. What makes this book even better is the character development, an improved story line and more plot twists.
I REALLY, REALLY LOVED THIS SEQUEL. Y'all should definitely check this series out! I highly recommend it!

I really just love this series so much! Amy Gumm really finds her dark and WICKED side in this book! I can't wait to get to the next in the series!!!
Not as good as the first book in my opinion..
Lacking a little bit of punch but still an interesting story line and the ending had a decent twist
Weird. It has been a while since I read the first one, so i don't remember it much...or at all, but I thought I liked it okay. This book screams teenager to me. Crappy melodrama with respect to romance, token gay character, and so many fighting scenes I thought I was reading the Avengers or some such Marvel comics. Most of the supporting cast are one dimensional, and there is some attempt at making the protagonist dynamic, but mostly it is teen angst and confusion, assuming she knows it all but is also a child and occasionally petulant.

In this New York Times bestselling sequel to Dorothy Must Die, who is good--and who is actually Wicked? The Wicked Will Rise is perfect for fans of richly reimagined fairy tales and classic tales like Marissa Meyer's Lunar Chronicles and Gregory Maguire's Wicked. My name is Amy Gumm--and I'm the other girl from Kansas. After a tornado swept through my trailer park, I ended up in Oz. But it wasn't like the Oz I knew from books and movies. Dorothy had returned, but she was now a ruthless dictator. Glinda could no longer be called the Good Witch. And the Wicked Witches who were left? They'd joined forces as the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked, and they wanted to recruit me. My mission? Kill Dorothy. Except my job as assassin didn't work out as planned. Dorothy is still alive. The Order has vanished. And the home I couldn't wait to leave behind might be in danger. Somehow, across a twisted and divided land, I have to find the Order, protect the true ruler of Oz, take Dorothy and her henchmen down--and try to figure out what I'm really doing here.
