In this digital original novella, Dorothy travels back to Oz to reunite with old friends, but her story may not have a happy ending. No Place Like Oz is a prequel to the forthcoming novel Dorothy Must Die.

After returning to Kansas, Dorothy Gale has realized that the dreary fields of Kansas don’t compare to the vibrant landscapes of Oz. And although she’s happy to be reunited with Aunt Em, she misses her friends from the yellow brick road. But most of all, Dorothy misses the fame and the adventure. In Kansas she’s just another prairie girl, but in Oz she was a hero. So Dorothy is willing to do anything to get back, because there really is no place like Oz. But returning to the land she left comes at a price, and after Dorothy is through with it, Oz will never be the same.

Perfect for fans of Alex Flinn, Marissa Meyer, and Gregory Maguire, No Place Like Oz is a dark reimagining of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. Building off of its rich mythology, Danielle Paige creates an edgy, thrilling story for teens that chronicles the rise and fall of one of the literature’s most beloved characters. This digital original novella is a prequel that sets the stage for the forthcoming novel Dorothy Must Die

My Thoughts

I was so so excited and really anticipating to read and get Dorothy Must Die when I first heard of it from epic-reads last year I just couldn't wait for it to come out. so I got the prequel novella No Place Like Oz when it first came out but I waited to read it because I wanted to get Dorothy Must Die first so I can read it back to back and I was so glad and happy that I did wait because now I am super excited and ready to read Dorothy Must Die next! I must say that I never read The Wizard Of Oz books just saw the movie but after reading this prequel of Dorothy Must Die it makes me want to read The Wizard Of Oz book too which I now I am going to do when I get my hands on it. All and all I really loved and enjoyed this prequel that I can't wait to dive in and read Dorothy Must Die next! Well until next time my friends!
