Editorial Reviews

Review

“Maguire is full of storytelling brio . . . his Oz is meticulously drawn.” -- New York Times

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

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

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

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

For Wicked: “I fell quickly and totally under the spell of this remarkable, wry, and fully realized story.” -- ―Wally Lamb, author of She's Come Undone and I Know This Much is True

“An amazing novel.” -- ―John Updike

“Save a place on the shelf between Alice and The Hobbit―that spot is well deserved.” -- ―Kirkus Reviews

From the Back Cover

In this captivating New York Times bestseller, beloved author Gregory Maguire returns to the land ofOz and introduces 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. At the Cloister of Saint Glinda the silent novice Candle tends to him, willing him back to life with her unusual 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 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?

For the countless fans who have been dazzled and entranced by Maguire's Oz, Son of a Witch is the rich reward they have awaited so long.
