Présentation de l'éditeur :

Long before Dorothy…there was Glinda

Glinda only wants freedom—from her parents, her tower, and her dreary life as the daughter of the Sorceress. She wants adventures like the ones she reads about. In all her fifteen years, she has never flown with Winged Monkeys, seen a magic mirror, or even talked with a Wicked Witch. And the only rebellion she ever led was against her mother, and that was over which dress to wear to the Abracadabra Bazaar.

But that single defiant act changes everything. She was supposed to be her mother’s apprentice, but the Witches destroyed the only home she knew. Orphaned and without friends, Glinda races across the land to find safety. Instead, she finds friends to stand with her against the magical armies of the Witches. They are outnumbered, out-magicked, and out of time. With her red hair as a symbol of rebellion against the Wicked Witches, Glinda will discover that the one thing in Oz more powerful than magic is freedom.

The Witch Queens

Glinda is the daughter of the Ruby Sorceress, trapped in her so-called perfect life - stuck in a tower with books, locked away to protect her from the Wicked Witches until the fateful day when she will join her mother in the sorcerous arts.

With her sixteenth birthday approaching, all Glinda wants is freedom - from her life, her parents, and all of their expectations. Today, at the Abracadabra Bazaar, she was expected to dress nice and play her part, but her red-haired rebellion ruined everything. Humiliated, she runs away and rejects all offers of help, leaving a huge opening in her life for the devious Wicked Witches to step in wreak havoc.

Orphaned and alone, Glinda runs for her life, questioning the freedom she thought she wanted, but no place is safe from the reach of the Wicked Witches -- The Wicked Witch of the East with her apprentice, Locasta; the Wicked Witch of the West, and Mombi. Until one day a giant balloon from a far-off land drops through a magic hole in the sky and changes everything. Glinda befriends this young ventriloquist named Oscar Diggs (The Wonderful Wizard) and finds courage from his stories of freedom and independence. Emboldened, Glinda stops running and faces the Witches and their armies.

If she can win the day against impossible odds, Glinda (and the entire Land of Oz) will be safe.

Journey with Glinda as she steps out of her sheltered life into a world of bitter enemies and loyal friends, unwanted destinies and impossible choices. Experience the heartache of opportunities lost, and the thrill of exciting new adventures. Enjoy the whimsy and wonder of growing up in a land where magic rules, and every freedom comes with a price.

About the Hidden History

The Celtic roots of Oz reach back more than one thousand years; a past full of Witches and warriors fighting to control the magic of the land. Oz is a land powered by human dreams, taking what is dreamed on earth to create magic.

Now the destiny of this magical land rests in the hands of two dreamers - a sorceress and a wizard. If they can conquer fear and overcome their troubled past, they will find a love for the ages and a brighter future for Oz. If not, their shadows will blanket Oz in an everlasting nightmare.

Whimsy and wonder, courage and adventure await in this prequel series to L. Frank Baum’s classic novel, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

The Witch Queens is a fun-filled fantastic adventure for ages 10 and up.

Biographie de l'auteur :

Tarl N. Telford (1976- ) was born on a high shelf, swaddled with books and nursed with knowledge. He is a novelist, poet, playwright, screenwriter, technical writer, and all-around knowledge manager. The eldest of nine children, Tarl quickly found his place next to the encyclopedias. Inspired by such authors as C.S. Lewis, Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, and Louis L’Amour, at a young age he felt the call to adventure and began writing stories. Tarl annotated The Wonderful Wizard of Oz novel as part of an interactive app project. His research inspired the creation of The Hidden History of Oz, a prequel series set in Oz in the decades before Dorothy. Tarl is the author of multiple screenplays, a handful of novels, several stage plays, a few short stories, and one really, really long poem that’s probably way too deep for an unadventurous reader. The Witch Queens is his first published novel. He dreams big in a small town in Texas with his red-haired wife.

Description du livre Emerald Engine Studios. Paperback. État : New. Paperback. 278 pages. In this epic prequel to The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, young sorceress Glinda and her friends battle the tyrannical Wicked Witches and learn the true cost and responsibility of freedom. The Witch Queens Fifteen year-old Glinda is destined to one day become the most powerful sorceress in the land of Oz, but that day is still a long way off. Today she has much more pressing concerns - making sure that her hair is just wild enough to drive her sorceress mother crazy during the exotic Abracadabra Bazaar. But Glindas red-haired rebellion sets off a series of events that launch the Wicked Witches to power and embroil the land in war. Glindas fiery red hair (and matching temper) have made her some powerful enemies. Kalinya rules the land of the East, but hungers for greater power. Ondri-baba desires the West and controls the Sandy Armies. Mombi seeks political power and allies herself with the new king, Pastoria, of the Emerald Lands. The lines are clearly drawn, with the freedom of all Oz hanging in the balance. Driven from her home in the North, and running for her life, Glinda is no match for the allied Wicked Witches and their Sandy Armies. Not even the Winged Monkeys, slaves to a powerful magic, can turn the tide in this war. The dream of freedom comes from a mysterious wizard, transported from pre-Civil War America, and his stories of revolution and liberty. These dreams spread and the inspired army grows daily. War clouds the entire land. In the wake of this upheaval, a city of emerald is built on principles of individual freedom, liberty, and responsibility. The Hidden History of Oz, Book One: The Witch Queens is a powerful adventure for all ages. Join Glinda and her friends as they battle against tyranny and discover the true responsibility of freedom. The Hidden History of OzSet in a magical land powered by dreams, the Hidden History of Oz explores the characters introduced by L. Frank Baum. True to the original version of Oz portrayed in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz novel, this prequel saga reaches into mysteries and events that shaped Oz, coupling them with dream and real-world history to craft powerful meaning into the whimsy created by Baum. In every land, there is that history which is celebrated, and there is that history which is hidden. Discover the adventure, the intrigue, the magic and dreams in The Hidden History of Oz.
