On her declaration Day, a day meant for celebration and happiness, Glinda finds her peaceful life in Oz is shattered when her mother is imprisoned for practicing forbidden magic. As she is ripped from her home by a fearsome bounty hunter sent by Aphidina, the Witch of the South , Glinda soon uncovers as startling truth: The Oz she’s always thought was good and right is actually not—it’s a world governed by the wickedest of the wicked, overrun with tyranny, corruption, and dark power. And Glinda’s mother? She is actually a high-ranking member of a secret society whose mission is to overthrow the four Wicked Witches and set the stage for the return of the rightful ruler of Oz.
