The author sure took this to a much darker place. In no way would no let my children read this until they were much older. I'm 36 and can't believe the things that were written in this book.
The first book was light hearted and child appropriate..this one...well just take a look at these examples taken directly from this book....these are just 2 of MANY
"Taylor squeezed her eyes shut, but there was nothing she could do to counter the sounds of tearing flesh, breaking bones and her mother's heartbreaking scr—"
"The Tinman buried the massive hammer in his chest again, and this time, bones and skin were broken. Blood gushed from a wound where broken ribs had torn through the Wheeler's chest."
I don't see how anyone could write that thinking it would be child appropriate..... there is no way I would EVER continue to read the rest of the books in the series if they were ever published.
Taylor and Wes head back to Oz to try to fix their mistakes from Book 1, as their world has begun to change due to the changes in Oz...not just little stuff like the texts, but also personalities and life-altering details. The Librarian is in there, as well as the bully and bad guys from Book 1. Hobbs starts to give the bully a change of heart based on his interactions with his dad, who acts differently in this new world, but it's incomplete.
Book 2 is much darker than Book 1...no longer a suitable bedtime story, unfortunately. Curious as to whether Hobbs will eventually continue the series, as it's not wrapped up but it's been a while since 2 came out.
I would have given it 5 stars except for two overly graphic parts (they are very short and can be skipped if a parent is reading) The two graphic sections are:
1) The attack on the Wheelers was way too descriptive. Without any comments of my own, my daughter mentioned this troubled her more than a week later! (For parents reading, skip a sentence or two)
2) The attack on the archer is also too descriptive.(For parents reading, skip one sentence)
As you can probably tell, I did not skip the full-detail but wish I had! (Dad didn't know it would be so troubling to 7 and 9 year olds...) These overly descriptive parts should be removed to be appropriate for this book's younger audience.
One final suggestion: I would also suggest that the Epilogue should include a brief description of Oz's return including a summary of what happened to: The Tinman (Was he rejoined to his maiden?), The Lion (Did he discover his bravery?), The Scarecrow (Did he appreciate how his decisions saved OZ..again), etc. This way, the story can still be a cliffhanger but at least there is satisfaction of wrapping up one part of the story with a happy ending.
I really liked this one, but think it is for a slightly older crowd than the first one. We raised a houseful of boys and now they've got boys in that bloodthirsty age group, so I think that they will gleefully enjoy reading it on their own or with friends. The story line picks up where the first one left off, and I surely wish I could find the next one!
