From the Publisher
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.
First Line So the talk of random brutality wasn't just talk.
Editors Note 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.
Editors Note 3 Years after the death of Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West, a young man named Liir, rumored to be Elphaba's son, is discovered by the nuns of Saint Gilda and revived by the mysterious foundling Candle.
