When her mother left her with her drug pushing step-father, Halo’s life was far from perfect, but the man did keep a roof over her head, even if he did use her for a punching bag. It wouldn’t be long before she could run free and far away, but that all changed the night he tried to kill her and the strange man in white showed up to make her an offer she was too terrified to refuse.

Welcome to a dark and deadly version of Oz, an “exclusive” underground club where murder was on the agenda and twist
I began reading it yesterday night, and I found myself thinking that if it has to somehow crossover or reference with the Wonderland one (as there are references to them as the "club" who stops the assassins of Oz and are pictured as their enemies) it would have been helpful to have had some kind of introduction to the world or something similar, specially for those of us who have read the previous one some time ago. It would help the readers to situate themselves, but it is nothing imprtant as ...more

Nicky Peacock hits home again with this high intesity, adrenaline fuelled adventure about a young girl on a mission to wipe out an organisation of ruthless murderers that goes by the name of Oz.

All Halo has ever wanted is a ...more

Halo has been living with her stepfather Jack ever since her mother left them. Her days consist of existing without ending up in an argument with him. One day Jack goes too far and Halo won't take his punishments any longer. She kills him in an attempt to protect herself. Halo didn't know that Jack was part of Oz, a club of serial killers. Now that Jack, whose Oz name was Wicked, is no longer alive to take his seat at the table, Halo has to replace him. Can Halo escape The Wizard of Oz?

What made me pick this book up:
I had read the first one a few months back, and I really enjoyed it so of course I wanted to read the second.

What did I like about the cover:
This cover is stunning. The colors are beautiful, I love the look of London in the background.
The color pops of green and yellow are beautiful, and I love the blonde hair. Kind of a silly thing to like, but once you read the

I'm not sure what it says about me/the books I read/the world in general, that given the strangeness of the world depicted in this series -- the serial killer, vigilante organization, imaginary friend that's not that imaginary, Native American legendary creature that's going around killing people -- and the even stranger stuff on the horizon of this book, that the hardest thing for me to swallow came in these opening
