Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Wicked Years continue in Gregory Maguires Son of a Witch—the heroic saga of the hapless yet determined young man who may or may not be the offspring of the fabled Wicked Witch of the West. A New York Times bestseller like its predecessor, the remarkable Wicked, Son of a Witch follows the boy Liir on his dark odyssey across an ingeniously re-imagined and nearly unrecognizable Land of Oz—a journey that will take him deep into the bowels of the Emerald City, lately abandoned by the Wizard, and into the jaws of dragons. At once a grim fairy tale and an uplifting adventure, Son of a Witch is a true wonder.

Synopsis:

In this captivating New York Times bestseller, beloved author Gregory Maguire returns to the land of Oz and introduces us to Liir, an adolescent boy last seen hiding in the shadows of the castle after Dorothy did in the Witch. Is he really Elphaba's son? He has her broom and her cape—but what of her powers? In an Oz that, since the Wizard's departure, is under new and dangerous management, can Liir keep his head down long enough to grow up?

Son of a Witch was not quite as good as Wicked, but the story does pick up and delve more into Liir and what happens after Elphaba dies. I enjoyed reading Liir’s story, but wish there had been more resolution with Nor and her family… Good book, great to read while travelling or just sitting at home on a cold winter’s day. I recommend for all readers.
