Now for the upsetting conclusion to my series of Oz posts.
In addition to Oz now having imperfections, there is another break in the series pattern.
For the grand finale, the diabolical Nome King returns.
Dorothy meets a vagrant, the shaggy man. “Money makes people proud and haughty; I don’t want to be proud and haughty. All I want is to have people love me.”
Belying the Wizard’s earlier timidity, this book shows off the wily, pitiless, and courageous side that must have allowed him to survive up against the witches.
Dorothy joins Ozma on a journey to free the Royal Family of Ev from the diabolical Nome King, Roquat of the Rocks.
The Marvelous Land of Oz keeps the action in the titular magical region, no isekai involved.
