Book Synopsis



New York Times Bestseller

Gregory Maguire's stunning saga set in the world of Oz comes full circle in the unforgettable conclusion to the Wicked Years series which started with Wicked, the multimillion-copy bestseller and basis for the Tony Award-winning hit musical, soon to be a major motion picture starring Cynthia Erivo and Ariana Grande.

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.

Amid all this chaos, Elphaba's granddaughter, the tiny green baby born at the close of Son of a Witch, has come of age. Now Rain will take up her broom in an Oz wracked by war.

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.



Review Quotes




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

"[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

"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

"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)

"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

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

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

"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)

"[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
