Synopsis

From the back cover:

Two years ago, Oscar Diggs, the Wonderful Wizard, arrived in Oz and changed everything. His stories and dreams enchant the land and bring him great power, but with great power comes even greater enemies. Those closest to the Wizard witness firsthand his struggles as he isolates himself from the adoring world. In the shining Emerald City filled with people, the Wizard stands utterly alone. But then an act of betrayal reveals the Wizard’s darkest secrets and unleashes a terrifying new weapon, the likes of which could destroy Oz forever.

Glinda, the young sorceress, wants Oscar. Kally, the magically disguised Witch, wants Oscar. Oscar, the object of everyone’s affection, just wants sleep. Whoever wins, the Wizard loses. His shadows now follow him into the daylight waking hours, threatening to destroy his fragile control over sanity.

With time running out, and the Wizard under the control of the golden-eyed Witch, Glinda searches the land to find Oscar and bring him home. If she succeeds, the Wizard will be safely shackled under her watchful care. But if she fails, no power in all of Oz will redeem him from the shadows.

This darkly imaginative story intertwines the troubled first steps of the Wizard’s descent into madness, and the heroic and devious exploits of the two women trying to save him from himself, illustrating that every hero is defined by their own shadow.

Note: This story has a cliffhanger ending that will be completed in Book Three: Emerald Spectacles.

The Hidden History of Oz, Book Two: Crown of the Dreamer is an intense fantastical adventure for ages 10 and up.
