My Review:

I received this book to read on Netgalley on November 12th and finished it November 13th 2016. I could not put it down, I loved this adventure, it had everything I wanted in an Oz story, there was magic, mermaids and a war between two very powerful women. I was a big fan of the first book in the series Bewitched in Oz and this book does not disappoint, I thought it was written really well and the characters were really fleshed out. I loved the way the author was able to describe the people and places in the story it made me want to see it for myself. great thing about the story is that since there is a war between two witches there was a tension going on where you wonder who’s spying on who and when someone is revealed to actually be surprised it was a surprise for me too. The way the book ends made me excited for a third book. This book is slated for release on March 1st 2016. 5 out of 5 stars.
