Out of Oz: Wicked Years Series, Book 4
The stunning conclusion to the smash New York Times bestselling series the Wicked Years
Gregory Maguire's Wicked Years series became national bestsellers and the basis for a hit Tony-winning Broadway musical. Now, Maguire returns with the final installment in his transformative work, a thrilling and compulsively readable saga in which the fate of Oz is decided at last...
Once peaceful and prosperous, the spectacular Land of Oz is knotted with social unrest: The Emerald City is mounting an invasion of Munchkinland, Glinda is under house arrest, and the Cowardly Lion is on the run from the law. And look who's knocking at the door. It's none other than Dorothy. Yes. That Dorothy.
Yet amid all this chaos, Elphaba's granddaughter, the tiny green baby born at the close of Son of a Witch , has come of age. Now it is up to Rain to take up her broom-and her legacy-in an Oz wracked by war.
The stirring, long-awaited conclusion to the bestselling series that began with Wicked , Out of Oz is a magical journey rife with revelations and reversals, reprisals and surprises-the hallmarks of the unique imagination of Gregory Maguire.

"Maguire's work is melodic, symphonic, and beautiful; it is dejected and biting and brave. How great that people flock to these magical novels."
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.
