Jon and Ben, two young men enter Oz accidentally when they follow an old man across a bridge at Hawk Mountain. They find themselves caught in a strange series of events as Oz’s citizens celebrate their new hall of fame. To the South and West of the Emerald City, natural disasters are occurring to everyone’s puzzlement.

Author Christopher Schmehl visits Oz hoping to recapture the essence of L. Frank Baum’s original The Wizard of Oz. He throws his protagonists to the wolves, literally, as well as to a mysterious mirror that could have got its start in some carnival funhouse.

Schmehl took a few references to Baum’s Oz series. Fans will recall the Wizard and Glinda the Good and the other original mainstays: Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, the Cowardly Lion, and of course Toto. True Oz readers will definitely remember the familiar Ozma, the Hungry Tiger, and the Patchwork Girl.

The new cast of characters are adventurous. They seem intent on treating Oz like a theme park and having all the excitement and fun they can have.

Schmehl dives into some of Oz’s history employing new areas in the realm, such as The Queasy Streets, to re-live out memories, desires, and other feelings of its inhabitants. It’s during this process that an old antagonist resurfaces and infiltrates the Emerald Palace. Read the book to find out the events as they unfold.

Oz fanatics will feel right at home once they start to read its opening chapters. The novel blends old with new, a fresh narrative continuing the original series that is an absolute must-have for any Oz fan. Own a copy today!
