Seventeen-year-old Anouk has finally caught the break she's been looking for--she's been selected out of hundreds of other candidates to fly to France and help with the excavation of a vast, underground palace buried a hundred feet below the suburbs of Paris. Built in the 1780's to hide an aristocratic family and a mad duke during the French Revolution, the palace has lain hidden and forgotten ever since. Anouk, along with several other gifted teenagers, will be the first to set foot in it in over two centuries.

Or so she thought.

But nothing is as it seems, and the teens soon find themselves embroiled in a game far more sinister, and dangerous, than they could possibly have imagined. An evil spanning centuries is waiting for them in the depths... (Summary from Goodreads)

Holy cats and dogs! This sounds so intriguing. I want to jump into this thriller right now!

Amy Gumm's mission to take down Dorothy Gale is not going according to plan. Dorothy has found way to bridge the worlds of Oz and Kansas, and if the power-hungry dictator of Oz has her way, Kansas will be destroyed forever. Now, Amy has to team up with the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked to save her home, restore the balance between the magic and nonmagic worlds, maybe get the guy--and kill that not-so-sweet Kansas farm girl once and for all. (Summary from Goodreads)

This is an explosive and adventurous series that I'm looking forward to continuing with. What a fantastic twist on the Oz stories it is. If you like the originals, think of these as the YA version and Wicked as the Adult version.
Check out my reviews of:
Dorothy Must Die, Book 1
The Wicked Will Rise, Book 2

What are you waiting on this week?
