Review: Yellow Brick War

Yellow Brick War
Yellow Brick War by Danielle Paige
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is what I’ve been waiting to get from this series. Finally! Four stars for sure.

Okay, so this is a continuation and not the ending of the series as I originally thought. And while I would have loved for it to come down to a satisfying ending, I’m not bothered by it continuing into book 4…though I do hope that the next one keeps on this path and doesn’t revert to book one–the beginning–or book two–the flatline. Book three, by far, is the best of the series.

Amy Gumm. She’s still that complaining, out of place teenager from the first two. But much like her life back home in Kansas, she changed for the better. There were still moments where she whined about her lot in life and I wanted to slap her, but overall, she was so much more better/fun to read this time around.

And the story….No spoilers, I promise…

It’s been building to this: The War with Dorothy…except it wasn’t really a war. The story went where I didn’t think it would ever ago. Say General Hospital (though I never watched that one, but I know people who read this who do) and Wizard of Oz got together and had a baby. That baby would be this book. Drama meets romance times second changes divided by magic of the Oz-ical kind. It was great. Even when Amy and the quadrant of witches were all in Kansas…

For me, that was the best part of the book. It showed a better range of the character types. It proves that people can change. It was mission impossible and yet mission accomplished.

I thoroughly enjoyed this one. (I mean, I did barrel through it in a few days.) Unfortunately, it took too long to get here. I just hope it stays here…

*A SPRING CLEANING READ – APRIL 2016* – I can’t believe I completed my TBR list for the month. Huh.
