Wicked Years

Main description:

Ten years after the publication of Wicked, beloved novelist Gregory Maguire returns to the land of Oz to introduce us to Liir, an adolescent boy last seen hiding in the shadows of the castle after Dorothy did in the Witch. Bruised, comatose, and left for dead in a gully, Liir is shattered in spirit as well as in form. But he is tended to at the Cloister of Saint Glinda by the silent novice called Candle, who wills him back to life with her musical gifts. What dark force left Liir in this condition? Is he really Elphaba's son? He has her broom and her cape—but what of her powers? Can he find his supposed half-sister, Nor, last seen in the forbidding prison, Southstairs? Can he fulfill the last wishes of a dying princess? In an Oz that, since the Wizard's departure, is under new and dangerous management, can Liir keep his head down long enough to grow up? Discover the captivating tale that has taken fans of Wicked even deeper into the magical world of Oz.

Review quote:

“A tale that adroitly mixes drama, humor, and political satire into a well-knit examination of good and evil.”

Review quote:

“An amazing novel.”

Review quote:

“As fantastical as a novel set in Oz should be.”

Review quote:

“Maguire has done it again: Son of a Witch is as wicked as they come. . . . Thoroughly entertaining.”

Review quote:

“Maguire is full of storytelling brio . . . his Oz is meticulously drawn.”

Review quote:

“Maguire’s captivating, fully imagined world of horror and wonder illuminates the links between good and evil, retribution and forgiveness.”

Review quote:

“Save a place on the shelf between Alice and The Hobbit—that spot is well deserved.”

Review quote:

For Wicked:“I fell quickly and totally under the spell of this remarkable, wry, and fully realized story.”

Short description/annotation:

The Wicked Years continue in Gregory Maguire’s Son of a Witch—the heroic saga of the hapless yet determined young man who may or may not be the offspring of the fabled Wicked Witch of the West. A New York Times bestseller like its predecessor, the remarkable Wicked, Son of a Witch follows the boy Liir on his dark odyssey across an ingeniously re-imagined and nearly unrecognizable Land of Oz—a journey that will take him deep into the bowels of the Emerald City, lately abandoned by the Wizard, and into the jaws of dragons. At once a grim fairy tale and an uplifting adventure, Son of a Witch is a true wonder.
