Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

An Amazon Best Book of October 2021: If you love Wicked prepare to lose yourself in Gregory Maguire’s world once more with The Brides of Maracoor, in which Elphaba’s granddaughter, Rain, takes center stage. After nearly drowning, Rain wakes up with no memory on a sacred island that is home only to seven female “brides” ranging in age from 10 to 80. The brides spend their days in ritual, keeping time in check for all of Maracoor, and Rain—accompanied by Iskinaary, a talking goose with a wicked sense of humor—begins to learn about this strange land, all the while hoping her memory will return. Details from Maguire’s earlier Oz books are a delight to encounter, as are the many moments of comedy in a tale that strikes the perfect balance between fantasy and topics of agency, xenophobia, and justice. The Brides of Maracoor is a thrilling start to an imaginative must-read trilogy. —Seira Wilson, Amazon Editor

Review

“A decade after she flew Out of Oz in Maguire’s Wicked series, Elphaba’s granddaughter crash-lands on an island inhabited by seven sacrificial virgins. The arrival of the green-skinned teen (and her talking goose) upends their enclave. An exquisitely crafted introduction to a new fantasy trilogy.” -- People

“Wonderful attention to detail. . . . [Maguire] does excellent character work. . . . The larger world of Maracoor Abiding . . . has echoes of Greek mythology and looks to be fertile ground as a setting for more books. An expertly crafted introduction to a new series of magic and adventure.” -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

The Brides of Maracoor once again shows Maguire’s rich, mesmerizing world building, full of small, frustrating human absurdities. . . . It also shows off his gift for crafting compelling characters. . . . It’s an intriguing, witty start to a fantastical proposed trilogy.” -- Booklist

“With its rich character development and a healthy dash of Maguire’s humor, this latest Oz tale is as satisfying a read as the Wicked Years quartet.” -- Buzzfeed

“Sharp and wry, funny and pointed, [Maguire] writes in Brides with a certainty and a sort of world-sized elegance, creating something new from scraps of the cloth he worked for years. He remains a master of a specific sense of intimacy amid scale, able to craft precise moments of fallibility, of humans picking our way through our lives, against the fate of nations and the endless sea.” -- Tor.com

 “Amazing novel.” -- John Updike, The New Yorker, on Wicked

“Maguire’s work is melodic, symphonic and beautiful; it is dejected and biting and brave. . . . In fabulous details and self-mocking language, Maguire displays his gift for whimsical portrayals of the broken, the powerless, the hopeless, the bad.” -- Los Angeles Times on A Lion Among Men

 “[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 on Out of Oz

“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 on Out of Oz

“[A] sassy reimagining of Baum’s world. . . . Maguire’s canvas is incredibly rich. . . . This last installment is one to savor.”  -- People (4 stars) on Out of Oz
