Sby

"A century after the Wicked Witch was killed, The Emerald City is ruled by a once-revered hero (Tin Woodman an ice-witch rules over the North, the Lions overrun the forests, evil twins approach from the West, and secrets hide in every shadow. Salvation for Oz comes from the unlikely wrench of young Victoria Wright, with the help of a father searching for his lost sons, a hero seeking redemption, an ill-mannered Munchkin (or three), and other friends along the way. Victoria comes to find that the smallest of actions can have much larger implications, and the most insignificant of us can change the world."

  • As of the end to the second volume, Victoria has yet to meet Ozma who is presumably her mother.
  • A brief reference is made to Grampa in Oz with the Tin Man going to Gorba’s Garden.
