I read Everland and Umberland, the first two books in this series, last spring. At that time, I thought Everland was okay, and I liked Umberland even less. But I was still intrigued enough, especially by the retelling aspects, to want to finish the series. I just didn't get the opportunity to do so until this April!

So I'll be honest; I went into this fully expecting not to like it, but somewhat hoping that it would redeem the series and make it worth my while. Unfortunately, my instincts were ri

Is this for real? It's little more than a first draft. It's choppy, doesn't flow well, there are some typos, & the characters all fall flat. Everland was phenomenal, & Umberland great. What happened with Ozland? Did the author get lazy & decide not to keep revising it? Did an editor even look this over? I'm disappointed beyond comprehension. Scholastic, I want my money back. ...more
I really liked how this not only expanded the world of Everland, with new characters but also gave a satisfying ending. I really like Gail and Ginger’s teamwork and kinda wish there was more about the aftermath. I loved the fairytale references so much! I felt they were included very cleverly!

This was an amazing ending to finish off the series!

I'm sorry, but I'm done.
This book lost me. And I'm not usually a person who quits on books. I LOVED the first two books of this series, but this one fell so far and hard that I can't get back up. I MIGHT reread the whole series, and then come back to this one. Perhaps that will help this, EH, feeling? I don't know.

I was really looking forward to this conclusion. I was not looking forward to the deaths of beloved characters, which Spinale has a habit of doing. She did not disappoint. I really liked the first book, Everland, and found the second, Umberland, just good. This time I had high hopes since I love the Wizard of Oz story. I found that Wendy Spinale did a very nice job weaving her story around elements of the Oz story. She slightly breaks away from the mold she used for the previous works and I thin ...more

There was so much action in this book, it became confusing at times. However, it was still an interesting read.

3,5 stars, it was fun but I felt like this series was way better at the start and went a little downhill from there.

I think I'm pretty meh about this whole series. I was hoping that Ozland would be the best one, but all three books are a flat 3-star read for me. Not terrible, but not great for me either. And like the other three, there's a lot of telling, not showing, especially in the first half.

I love that we got Doc's perspective in this since he's one of the characters that I've enjoyed over the series and I'm like, "Please don't die, please don't die, please don't die."

But it feels weird that we spend

Okay, So I had a lot of problems with the first book, the second book wasn't the best but had two amazing characters in Alyssa and Maddox. This book? Had nothing. Alyssa and Maddox sidelined, Pete and Gwen there but not really; Gail, who was new, as one of the flattest characters ever. A bad end to an overall mediocre series.

I cannot stand this book!!!

The amount of time I have spent yelling at this book is incredible. I’m done. Don’t read it if you want to go as long as you can without extra grey hairs.

Two stars because the idea of the book is still good. The execution was lacking.

Fans of the first two books in this series of childhood fantasy favorites being retold will likely enjoy this one. This steampunk dystopian series shows London a year after the Horologia virus was unleashed by the evil Bloodred Queen from Germany. This virus killed nearly all the adults. Now the Lost Kids are racing against Captain Hook to find King Osbourne to return him to power while scrambling to find a true cure to the deadly virus.

I loved the first two books in the series (Everland and Umberland) so I had high hopes going into this one. However, they were met with disappointment. I could not get into some of the new characters and the old characters I had liked were all killed off. I felt like there were times when the author wanted to make it more dramatic or dark (hence killing people, throwing them into tough circumstances), but it happened so often that the high-charged action moments got to be boring.

The survivors of the destruction of Everland and Umberland are desperate to stop the Bloodred Queen and save the world from the Horologia virus. It will take each one of them, plus a few new characters and a lot of sacrifice, to triumph.

With the introduction of a third world and more characters, Spinale overloads her

This is the last of the series and my goodness that was a bit of a wild ride. So much death. This series has always been on the dark side, but this finale really amped it up. Mostly wrapped up nice and neat, so I'm good with the ending.

The apple tree is burned and the walls keeping the monstrosities is gone down with it. The gang is hole up in Evergreen Village trying to figure out a way to kill the Bloodred Queen, disperse their new cure, and save the king who is supposed to be de

While the series overall had so much promise - this book falls so flat.

The first book was so good and it gradually got worse as the books went on. The character development is one of the worst I have seen, you took time to develop characters we loved in the first book and then they get little to no mention in this book. Not to mention they go from being main characters to the back seat.

The integration of new stories could have been introduced in a better way. The first book the retelling story w

Not the worst thing I've read, but I can't remember why I even continued this series. I think I picked umberland because, Alice retelling. Idk, maybe I wanted to finish the series?

Anyway, I've been putting this off for a while, and I'm glad to be done with it. Things ended basically how I expected, and I kind of liked the twist on Glinda, but meh. This book's perspectives were Gail, Doc, and Katt, and I couldn't stand any of them.

I want to see these books as movies because the images described are so excellently dystopian/steampunk/vaguely fantasy apocalpytical that they could be really cool. Especially the interpretations of the Cowardly Lion/Scarecrow/Tin Woodman. PLEASE MOVIEEEEE

also there was a General Ginger and that nod to Jinjur in the actual Oz books made me so happyyyyy

While I enjoyed the first two books in the series, I just didn't feel like this one was up to par with the others. The story was interesting but I missed the POVs from Everland and Umberland. I just wasn't as invested in Doc and Gail compared to Alyssa, Maddox, Pete, and Gwen. I wanted more of their stories and they were only minor characters in this book. I was a bit disappointed. This doesn't mean others reading the series won't enjoy it or that it isn't well written. It is just my personal op ...more

I was thoroughly looking forward to reading the final instalment in the Everland trilogy and 'Ozland' certainly delivered. Continuing on from the previous book, 'Umberland', 'Ozland' took the story from the viewpoint of Doc, Gail and Katt. I found the story through Gail's eyes most intriguing and gripping compared to Doc and Katt's, some of their ideas and thoughts becoming repetitive at times. The expansion of the plot and the way the ideas all came together at the end was fantastic. It was sim ...more

A bit of a let down!

After the action and tension of the first two books in this series, the finale felt flat. The fighting between the heroes and the evil forces of the Bloodred Queen and Katt dragged on and in. The odds seemed insurmountable. Then suddenly in a matter of a few pages all is resolved and done. It was wrapped up far too quickly. I'm glad it's over, but there's a discontent with the ending. I can't help feeling that Spinale could have done so much more with the Oz story. Maybe she

I am just not a fan of this series it seems. There was too much repetition of the same information over and over for me and the plot was very simplistic. I didn't really feel connected to the main characters, as throughout the series, the main character kept switching. Because of that, I felt more and more detached from previous characters (looking at you Gwen) and I didn't feel I learned enough about the new ones. The ending didn't work for me either, as it seemed to just end with little explan ...more
