At the end of Yellow Brick War, Amy had finally defeated Dorothy. Just when she and the rest of the surviving members of the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked thought it was safe to start rebuilding the damaged land of Oz, they realized they’ve been betrayed—by one of their own. And Dorothy might not have been so easily defeated after all.

In the fourth installment of the N

The best way to read this series (if you're dead on on it) would be to follow how the series is set up on GR (like, when you click on the series name beside the title). https://www.goodreads.com/series/1118...
So it's Dorothy Must Die: Stories (Vol. 1) (consisting of No Place Like Oz (#0.1), The Witch Must Burn (#0.2), and The Wizard Returns (#0.3)). Then DMD: Stories (Vol. 2) (consisting of Heart of Tin (#0.4), The Straw King (#0.5), and Ruler of Beasts (#0.6)). Then the novellas Order of the Wicked (#0.7) and untitled #0.8.
Full-length novel wise, it's Dorothy Must Die, The Wicked Will Rise, Yellow Brick War, and untitled book 4.
The novellas are all a prequel arc so they're not necessary to read, only if you want to be fully immersed into the world.
Also, yes, Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 consist of the prequels you mentioned, just bound up in a physical copy!(less)

i guess trilogies just don't exist anymore.

This was an excellent conclusion to this fun series!! This time we also get a point of view from Dorothy, and she's something else! Loved the relationship between Knox and Amy in this one! The author has excellent world building skills, and that part was well done! This whole series was the perfect blend of light and dark! Full review on my blog https://literarydust.wordpress.com/20...

3.5 Stars

I had been awaiting this final book in the Dorothy Must Die series for such a long time, but this book ended up being a bit disappointing. It keeps the same action as always, but it seemed unnecessary. I enjoyed seeing some old characters redeem themselves, but the new setting isn’t as impressive as the other books. I found myself unsatisfied with the ending, and would have liked one more magical journey to Oz.

This book is so action-packed! This final instalment of the Dorothy Must Die

Eh. I expected more. The first two books in this series are terrific. They're true gems. The third book fell a little flat but it still kept up the pace and it had a decent plot. But The End Of Oz was drawn out and unnecessary. Because this series was destined to be a trilogy. When I read Yellow Brick War, I think everybody was under the impression, that would be the final book. And when it ended, it could have been. All Danielle Paige would have needed was to write whether Amy stayed

I loved all 4 books in this series and right now I am bursting with joy because of the ending of this one. The Dorothy Must Die series is definitely one of the most entertaining series I’ve read. This is one of those series where the story and plotline take precedence over the emotional aspect of the books.
All 4 books followed the original storyline very well and didn’t break off which I really liked. The world building was absolutely fascinating, I loved seeing how Danielle Paige twisted the o

Are you kidding me?? First I thought this was going to be a duology, then I got my hands on the third book and was super excited to finally get to the end of the series, and now there's a fourth book? This just feels like it's dragging on far too much. Danielle Paige is really milking it with this one.

Disappointed is an understatement to what I feel right now.

I guess I was feeling optimistic when reading this book, desperately trying to scrounge for something I enjoyed.

Having the finale of a series being the shortest book (it’s 270 pages, what?) in the series automatically had red flags swishing in front of my face and although I kept those alerts in mind, I wanted to see how it all ends, closure is the only thing I wanted from this series at this point.

Mini Review: Jeez. What happened to this series?

Is it just me? My reading tastes definitely shift over the course of a year, but I thought this was utterly awful.

This book felt ludicrous in plot, and it was a predictable mess of a finale. We get a Dorothy perspective, which was laughably bad. It feels overwritten and like it's trying too hard.

Perhaps I'm being harsh, but I think this series really fell apart, which sucks because it had one of the most promising first books that I've read.

I can't believe this is it...the final book in Danielle Paige's dark, deadly, delectable, and diabolically amazing Dorothy Must Die series!

Now that we know who the real Big Bad is, the Nome King, it's up to Amy, Nox, and Madison to travel to the land of Ev and figure out a way to defeat him before he manages to subjugate the land of Oz as well. Of course, he's got a secret ally on his side, one who may not be such a good ally after all...but to reveal who that ally is would be a spoiler. (Let's

Full Review on my blog!

Let me first start with saying that the series is a roller coaster of emotions perfectly twisted together to form a lovely book series! The End of Oz was a beautiful end to this series! This time we also get a point of view from Dorothy, and she’s something else!

I loved the dual perspectives in this book, showing us a whole new side to Dorothy. I especially appreciated the way we saw events from both Amy and Dorothy’s point of view, and seeing them both figure things out a

Before Reading:

I still can't get over the fact that there is going to be a fourth book. Yellow Brick War was atrocious and should have concluded the series, but looks like Ms. Paige will get more of my money. I hope it returns to the innocent fun that was Dorothy Must Die, but that looks doubtful.

After Reading:

"'Three worlds, two pairs of shoes, sixteen villains ... It's too much....'"


Who knew that the book would be so self-aware? The direction in which Paige took the series saw a massive down

I went out and bought this as soon as it hit the stores and I read it in one day. I can barely describe how happy I felt afterwards. The book ended exactly as I had hoped. No I'm not a bleeding heart who expects all books to have a sappy traditional happily-ever-after ending, but I really wanted it for this one. I haven't loved a book couple as much as Nox and Amy (well, and Eleanor and Park too), (view spoiler) ...more

Update! Here's my full review: http://www.bookishrealmreviews.com/20...

3.5 Stars. Okay this was a hell of a lot better than the third book. Yes I still had my issues with it as in the fact that I still think the story could have done without the Nome King and Ev. While they are interesting aspects, they weren't developed enough to fit in with the story and kind of just felt like filler moments. I work think that the story could have been contained into three books but that's just my personal opi

I received a copy of The End of Oz from HarperCollins New Zealand to review. This is the last book in the Dorothy Must Die series. I think.

This series has been predictable and really cheesy at times but I still found myself enjoying it. I haven’t read the novellas yet but I’m hoping to get to them soon.

I liked that Madison was in this book. I actually started to like her in Yellow Brick War. I liked that Amy and Madison’s friendship didn’t happen overnight and they still had their problems with

When it comes to the magical world of Oz, I do not know what it is exactly that draws me every time nonetheless I will forever be grateful that L. Frank Baum created this beautiful fantasy land and Danielle Paige for temporary borrowing it and creating something fresh when it comes to Oz and Dorothy Gale. I grew up watching The Wizard of Oz and I believe it is one of the few films that blows me away every time. For this Dorothy Must Die series, without any

I know that her original plan was to have a trilogy, and Goodreads had a lengthy page count for the third book. I'm wondering if Paige decided to split the book in half to space it out. That being said, I'm still hoping the final book is lengthy like the first one was. And the Wicked Witch of the West please!
BAM The Bibliomaniac
2.5 perhaps
This series really went downhill for me. It started strong, then just degenerated. Teens have brains, and I think that was forgotten.
Lord of the Rings, The Neverending Story, Dune, The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe were all ripped off so originality was lacking.
Dorothy is really the only character I enjoy. I think I may be her.

Warning- Spoilers Ahead

I gotta say, I really was disappointed in the way that it ended. I also was very unhappy with this story.

For one thing, the inconsistencies I kept finding while I was reading was awful. You can see in my progress at one point our author had no idea where our character was! I found a lot of things misspelled, wrong punctuation, and even missing words. The proofreader was falling down on their job.

I also found the story itself to just be...boring. This is supposed to be the

I was counting the hours for this book to come out and it did not disappoint. In the book Dorothy has her own POV which I really loved. I got to know Dorothy more then I did in the previous books and by the end I could understand her a lot better and really liked her. Amy and Nox have always been one of my favourite book characters and in the book they made me so happy. I'm not going to spoil anything but the ending was perfect for them. Madison also became one of my favourite characters of the ...more

I don't know...this book just felt completely underwhelming. I actually loved the first three books in the series, and I agree with anyone saying that the series could've ended there.

I thought The End of Oz was unnecessary. It seemed to swerve away from the main story, and although I'm all for the introduction of a new villain, in this book it wasn't incorporated very well. The plot for this book seemed very drawn out, and it wasn't until the end did the story actually move forwards.

Here comes the bride... so we can kill her. Dorothys getting married, who says she not lovable?!

The end of Oz was a fast, humorous, predictable read with a semi happy happily ever after.

With the scarecrow, tin man, and lion all gone Dorothy is the only one left for Amy to find. But when she finds Dorothy, Dorothy has a plan of her own.

This book was exactly how I wanted this series to end!

Yellow Brick War was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo good. I really can't wait for this book to come out. This is my favorite book series IN THE WORLD! The writing style is amazing and really grabs your attention. I can't wait to see how this turned out.

Alright y'all listen up. I absolutely positutely LOVED Dorothy Must Die. The Wicked Will Rise was okay. Yellow Brick War was better... Then The End of Oz happened and it was like what?! How could it go from Dorothy Must Die which was amazing, to The End of OZ which was just eh. In my opinion this book was just completely pointless. It was 217 pages of pointless cutesy Amy and Nox moments (don't get me wrong, I enjoyed those) and 60 pages that could have been tacked onto the end of Yellow Brick W ...more
