So the talk of random brutality wasn't just talk. (from the first line)
In this follow-up to "Wicked"--the basis for the Tony Award-winning musical--beloved novelist Maguire returns at last to the land of Oz and introduces readers to Liir, the small boy Elphaba leaves behind at her untimely death.
From the Publisher:
A sequel to the Broadway musical-inspiring Wicked returns readers to the land of Oz, where adolescent Liir is discovered ten years after the melting of the witch Elphaba, attended by the mysterious foundling Candle, and called upon to locate his half-sister, Nor. Reprint. 300,000 first printing.
Annotation:
The homage to L. Frank Baum's Oz books and cynical commentary on the dirty underside to fantasy novels continue with the long-awaited sequel to WICKED, the bestseller that inspired a hit Broadway musical. Elphaba Thropp, the green-skinned Wicked Witch of the West, has died, leaving behind the foundling boy Liir, who believes that he may actually be her illegitimate son. Alone and rootless, he resolves to search for his childhood friend (and possible half-sister) Nor, who was taken away by the Wizard's army several years ago.

Praise

Publishers Weekly
"[M]asterfully imaginative....Tucked into Maguire's enchanting fable are carefully calibrated object lessons in forgiveness, retribution, love, loss and the art of moving on despite tragic circumstances. Ten years after WICKED...fans will once again be clicking their heels with wonderment." (starred review) 07/18/2005

Kirkus Reviews
"[R]ichly detailed....[L]ike L. Frank Baum's magical land itself...[SON OF A WITCH is] filled with wonderful things....[F]ew readers will fail to stay its magical course. Once again, the myth of Oz proves its enduring power." (starred review) 07/15/2005
