Hi readers, I'm sorry it has taken me SO long to put this review up for a relatively short book. I've been really busy and I haven't had time to read :(.
Yellow Brick War starts from where The Wicked Will Rise finished. Amy and Nox have both just battled to try to save Oz.
In the first pages of the third book we're thrust back into the action straight away. We see Mombi, Gurt and Glamora asking for the next witch to step up and join the circle. Amy thinks this is her but is a little confused when she realises it's Nox. Nox does step up to save the place he's called home but he knows that a relationship between him and Amy is forbidden when he does this. I, personally love a forbidden romance in a book so I was all up for this.
Amy is told by the witches to go back to Kanas and find shoes that Dorothy left there. They will be the only thing that will let her defeat her. She does this because she wants to check on her mother more than for what the witches want.
When she returns to Kansas alone, Amy finds her mother living in a flat with a boyfriend. Her mum seems to have calmed down some since Amy left and isn't as wild anymore. The shoes are at the school so Amy has to go back there and get detention so she can clean up to find them. Madison, her enemy from before Oz becomes her friend and helps her as well as Dustin Sr and Jr, Madison's boyfriend and son. What is revealed while she's at the school is surprising though. I don't want to spoil it here as it's what makes this book exciting.
When Amy returns to Oz after Kansas she's back into trying to pinpoint Dorothy's whereabouts with the witches. Before Amy left Oz Nox was cold towards her. It's only when she comes back that Nox begins to realise what he feels for Amy is important. As their relationship continues to develop, they find both Dorothy and Glinda. While Glamora deals with Glinda - Amy is left to fight Dorothy. She does this with the help of Nox. She also destroys the castle of the Emerald City but she does "defeat" Dorothy. I put defeat in quote marks because we're not actually sure that she is defeated. Glamora becomes merged with Glinda so no one is sure if she's good or evil.
There will be another book!!! I cannot wait to read it as I love these stories. I really hope there's more romance in the next book. I've got a feeling there will be as Amy and Nox have to help Madison and Dustin defeat someone other than Dorothy and Glinda/Glamora. Someone from their world.
I'm giving this book 4 stars because the only thing I would have added to it were more Amy and Nox moments. I love the way the author writes her version of Oz. It sounds so whimsical and fairytale like.
Have any of you read this series? If so what do/did you think of it? Did you like it as much as I did? Comment below and tell me.
