Contraportada:

The stunning conclusion to the smash New York Times bestselling series the Wicked Years

Hailed as "bewitching," "remarkable," "extraordinary," "engrossing," "amazing," and "delicious," Gregory Maguire's Wicked Years series--a sophisticated fantasy cycle inspired by the classic children's novel The Wizard of Oz--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 amidst 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 begun 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.

Críticas:

"Engrossing, complex . . . continues to flip the world of Oz on its head while answering new and old questions about Oz and its denizens. Highly recommended."--Library Journal (starred review)

"Maguire has crafted a complex, detailed Oz...; populated it with a wide range of characters and histories; created complex, layered plots; and dropped in some magic to bring it all together. His Oz envelops a reader in a feast for the senses and for the mind."--Wichita Eagle

"[OUT OF OZ] will delight Maguire's legions of fans, but will surely seduce a whole new world of readers, who can start at the end and go backwards in time to WICKED to understand the breadth and amazing imaginative landscape of his remarkable work."--Bookreporter.com

"[A] masterwork.... Concludes...one of the most audacious and successful fantasy series of the past few decades.... Hilarious, heart-wrenching and extremely poignant.... The greatest fantasy series make one want to read them again. That's what I intend to do with this one."--Washington Post

"A worthy conclusion to an imaginative and emotionally searing cultural phenomenon. . . . nobody does fractured fairy tales better than Maguire."--Booklist

"Maguire creates a world we can bear, just around the corner. He does this . . . with delicious writing; a tapestry of sentences so carefully imagined they brush over your skin as you read."--Newsday

"A captivating storyteller. . . . Maguire pays subtle homage to Tolkien and Rowling and even Frank Baum while having a grand old time in the fantastically complicated world he has crafted. . . . Action-filled. . . . [a] deliciously fun novel."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"In four books, Maguire has expanded the mythology of Oz from L. Frank Baum's books and created a land that's just as rich as Middle-earth or Narnia, and balances the serious with the sublime. . . . Out of Oz is a satisfying finish to the Wicked Years saga."--USA Today

"(A) satisfying finale to Maguire's series."--Christian Science Monitor

"[A] sassy reimagining of Baum's world. . . . Maguire's canvas is incredibly rich. . . . This last installment is one to savor."--People magazine (4 stars)

Descripción HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2011. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 236 x 165 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Maguire s work is melodic, symphonic, and beautiful; it is dejected and biting and brave. How great that people flock to these magical novels. --Los Angeles Times Book Review 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.
