Yellow Brick War RECAP

There are so many epic battles that take place in Yellow Brick War so we’re going to recap this book for you via all of those battles!

NOME KING VS. AMY & NOX

When Amy finally finds Dorothy’s original magic shoes in her high school, she comes face to face with the Nome King, who is the ruler of the land of Ev and once tried to take over Oz. The Nome King wants Amy to put on Dorothy’s shoes and become the next ruler of Oz so that he can control her. Nox shows up at the perfect time to help fight the Nome King since Amy can’t use magic in Kansas. But the Nome King is too powerful so Amy is forced to put on Dorothy’s shoes and transport Nox and herself back to Oz to escape, as the Nome King creepily says “I’ll see you very soon, Miss Gumm.” Not sure what this guy’s plans are but it doesn’t bode well!

 

GLINDA VS. THE ORDER

The Revolutionary Order of the Wicked are all hiding out in an abandoned palace when Glinda and her army show up, operating behind Dorothy’s back to take over Oz. While Glamora battles her sister one-on-one to distract her, Amy & crew and fight their way through Glinda’s creepy female army to try and rescue Ozma, who is being held hostage.

DOROTHY VS. EVERYONE

During the battle, Amy tries to use the magic shoes but they are still connected to Dorothy, who now knows where she is and shows up riding a magically transfigured, monster version of Toto. Dorothy is furious Glinda has betrayed her and brings her own army of the Tin Man’s horrible metal creations to attack everyone. Amy uses her magic to briefly transform into a monster and cuts off Toto’s head. Dorothy flees the scene and Glamora is about to kill Glinda when Glinda transforms into a mysterious pink light that flows into Glamora’s body—creating a weird hybrid of the two sisters.

 

DOROTHY VS. AMY

Amy and Nox head inside the Emerald Palace to try and stop Dorothy from sapping up the last of Oz’s magic. They find Dorothy in a cavern under the Palace next to a magical pool of water she is using to give herself all of Oz’s power. Amy & Nox break Dorothy’s connection to the magical pool, creating a shock wave that causes the Palace to begin to crumble. Amy is about to stab Dorothy to finish her once and for all, but stops herself because she doesn’t want to be a monster anymore. Instead, Amy and Nox escape and just let the Palace collapse on top of Dorothy.

 

NOME KING & GLINDA/GLAMORA VS. THE ORDER

While everyone is busy celebrating Dorothy’s alleged death, it turns out Glinda has been stealing control of Glamora’s body. Glinda opens a portal to Kansas and summons the Nome King and Amy’s former high school nemesis Madison Pendleton. The Nome King threatens to torture Madison unless Amy gives up her magic shoes. Mombi attacks Glinda and the Nome King and sacrifices herself so that Amy, Nox, and Madison can use the Yellow Brick Road to escape.

——

Where is the Yellow Brick Road taking Amy, Nox, and Madison? And now that we know Dorothy is still alive, what will she do to get her revenge? Find out how it all ends by reading THE END OF OZ!
