I don't consider myself an avid reader of fiction, but I absolutely love Gregory Maguire's lyrical prose and the way he brings his characters to life through imaginatively detailed and beautifully written descriptions. His amazing cast will live on in my heart and mind, of this I am certain.

Fitting conclusion to the series. All the Characters are present, along with a tie in to the Original Baum characters from the later books (Mombi, Tip, etc.).

If you like Wicked, Son of a Witch, and A Lion Among Men, you will thoroughly enjoy this conclusion.

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "The final volume of Maguire's Wicked Years series finds Oz torn by war, and Shell Thropp, Elphaba's brother, as emperor. Munchkinland has seceded, and the Emerald City invades with the Ozian army to get it back. Glinda, former Throne Minister, is held under house arrest by General Cherrystone, who takes an interest in Rain, Glinda's broom girl, teaching her to read. He doesn't know that Rain is actually Liir's daughter and Elphaba's granddaughter, and the only one who can understand the infamous Grimmerie, supposedly a volume of magical lore, coveted by Oz. A troupe of traveling players arrive and secretly give the Grimmerie to Glinda, who distracts the soldiers long enough to send Rain off with Brrr (aka the Cowardly Lion). So begins a quest for Rain to discover her true identity and unravel the layers of political and personal secrets that have caused strife and division in Oz. Maguire's take on the trouble-prone Dorothy Gale is refreshing, and his Oz far darker, sadder, harsher, more complex, and convoluted than Baum's (which will make this hard to follow for readers unfamiliar with the series). The language and imagery are rich, and the sense of love, loss, and regret palpable. For fans, this will be a revealing and satisfying end to the layered tale begun in Wicked."

"Review" by , "A worthy conclusion to an imaginative and emotionally searing cultural phenomenon....nobody does fractured fairy tales better than Maguire."
"Review" by , "Engrossing, complex...continues to flip the world of Oz on its head while answering new and old questions about Oz and its denizens. Highly recommended."
"Review" by , "Maguire's work is melodic, symphonic, and beautiful; it is dejected and biting and brave. How great that people flock to these magical novels."
"Synopsis" by , Bestselling author Gregory Maguire's remarkable series, The Wicked Years, comes full circle with this, his fourth and final excursion across a darker, richer, more complex landscape of "the magical land of Oz." Out of Oz brilliantly reimagines L. Frank Baum's world over the rainbow as wracked with social unrest — placing Glinda the good witch under house arrest and having the cowardly Lion on the lam from the law as the Emerald City prepares to make war on Munchkinland. Even Dorothy makes a triumphant return in Maguire's magnificent Oz finale—tying up every loose green end of the series he began with his classic Wicked, the basis for the smash hit Broadway musical.
