I received a digital advanced reader copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
This is such an awesome retelling of The Wizard of Oz. It is so fun to read one of my favorite stories with the addition of vampires, zombies, and werewolves. This book really felt like coming home, there was a familiarity to it but with a quirky twist. If you want a book that is dripping in originality, then this isn’t your book. It is a very close retelling but with a twist.
My main complaints for this story would be that it was a bit repetitive. I felt Dorothy was super whiny. But my favorite part was that the book premises was super amazing. I do feel like it could have been executed better.
I felt the mention of the color grey was way overly repetitive. It reminded you constantly that the world was without color. I did love the direction the author took the Tin Man, Scarecrow, and Lion. I’ve always loved those characters in the original story, so seeing them so wonderfully mastered here made me adore them even more.
Thank you to netgalley, the publisher, and the author for allowing me to review this book.
