Sure, I've read the books. I've seen the movies. I know the song about the rainbow and the happy little bluebirds. But I never expected Oz to look like this. To be a place where Good Witches can't be trusted, Wicked Witches may just be the good guys, and winged monkeys can be executed for acts of rebellion. There's still a yellow brick road - but even that's crumbling. What happened? Dorothy.

I absolutely love Fairytale retellings, and this was no exception. It was dark, twisted, and nothing like what you thought The Wizard of Oz would ever turn out like. The descriptions of Dorothy's companions were quite gruesome, to say the least.

The suspense and tension throughout the book were superb, as I never really knew what was going to happen, or whether Amy was going to get caught. It was never really predictable which a lot of YA books tend to be, (sorry not sorry), and the twist at the end definitely came as a bit of a shock.

This book, however, did feel a little bit like a "second book in the series", just because it included a lot of things that are going to be useful in upcoming books. It wasn't a bad thing as such to add these, but I thought they seemed kind of out of place, as these subplots seemed to be disjointed from the rest of the story.

A wonderfully imaginative story with a bite to it, Dorothy Must Die really kept me intrigued throughout the majority of the book. No, that's not a typo, I did mean majority - this is due to the fact that I thought it could have been a tad shorter than it was. I'm definitely keen to read the next book though, for sure!
