Oz Will Fall: Wicked Rebirth is a work of fiction in the fantasy, action and adventure sub-genres, and was penned by author duo John Malone and Nicole Delgado. Suitable for most readers from mature teens upwards, the work does contain some scenes of graphic fantasy violence that puts a darker spin on the traditional tales of Oz. In this third installment of the Oz Will Fall series, we find our classic heroes in a state of hopelessness and disarray. As the Wicked continue to rise and their darkness shrouds the land in a seemingly impenetrable doom, change looms on the horizon, and Oz cannot help but succumb to it.
Author team John Malone and Nicole Delgado really know how to tell a story. One of the things I particularly liked about this novel was the pacing, which takes us through action-packed chapters at the kind of breakneck speed that you’d expect from the third book in a series where the action is really heating up. Their transformation of Oz is grown up and vividly described, with excellent use of dark imagery and new inventive monsters who join the Wicked in the fight against Good. I also really enjoyed the characterization of Dorothy as a strong young woman who has had her idyllic visions shattered, and she is really put to the test by the amazing events of this blockbuster plot. Overall, I would highly recommend Wicked Rebirth and the Oz Will Fall series to fantasy fans looking for a more serious and dangerous reimagining of this classic world.
