    The beginning almost ruined the book for me. We find out that all these characters have died and it almost feels like, what's the point then? The characters go through so much and then die anyway. And most of them are kids! It just made the book hard to read. The different character po...

    I was really looking forward to this conclusion. I was not looking forward to the deaths of beloved characters, which Spinale has a habit of doing. She did not disappoint. I really liked the first book, Everland, and found the second, Umberland, just good. This time I had high hopes si...

    This finale to the Everland trilogy has Gail (i.e. Dorothy Gale from The Wizard of Oz) teaming up with Ginger to locate the true king while Pete and Doc try to escape their imprisonment in the Bloodred Queen's castle, make a cure for the Horologia virus, and thwart Katt's plans to over...

    3,5 stars, it was fun but I felt like this series was way better at the start and went a little downhill from there. ...

    Is this for real? It's little more than a second draft. It's choppy, doesn't flow well, there are some typos, & the characters all fall flat. Everland was phenomenal, & Umberland great. What happened with Ozland? Did the author get lazy & decide not to keep revising it? Did...

    I think I'm pretty meh about this whole series. I was hoping that Ozland would be the best one, but all three books are a flat 3-star read for me. Not terrible, but not great for me either. And like the other three, there's a lot of telling, not showing, especially in the first half. ...

    Fans of the first two books in this series of childhood fantasy favorites being retold will likely enjoy this one. This steampunk dystopian series shows London a year after the Horologia virus was unleashed by the evil Bloodred Queen from Germany. This virus killed nearly all the adul...

    I'm sorry, but I'm done. This book lost me. And I'm not usually a person who quits on books. I LOVED the first two books of this series, but this one fell so far and hard that I can't get back up. I MIGHT reread the whole series, and then come back to this one. Perhaps that will help ...

    I loved the first two books in the series (Everland and Umberland) so I had high hopes going into this one. However, they were met with disappointment. I could not get into some of the new characters and the old characters I had liked were all killed off. I felt like there were times w...

    I was thoroughly looking forward to reading the final instalment in the Everland trilogy and 'Ozland' certainly delivered. Continuing on from the previous book, 'Umberland', 'Ozland' took the story from the viewpoint of Doc, Gail and Katt. I found the story through Gail's eyes most int...

    I am just not a fan of this series it seems. There was too much repetition of the same information over and over for me and the plot was very simplistic. I didn't really feel connected to the main characters, as throughout the series, the main character kept switching. Because of that,...

    While I enjoyed the first two books in the series, I just didn't feel like this one was up to par with the others. The story was interesting but I missed the POVs from Everland and Umberland. I just wasn't as invested in Doc and Gail compared to Alyssa, Maddox, Pete, and Gwen. I wanted...

    The buildup took up just about the entire book leaving the ending too rushed. I felt as thought way too much detail was put into basically ten pages. Glad that Gwen, Pete, Doc, and Lily survived the Bloodred Queen. Surprisingly I was even glad Jack made it and saddened that Hook didn?...

    I did not like this book. Where was the retelling of Oz in this book because I did not see it at all.. The ending was rushed for me and the book dragged in some places.. She also kept killing off the characters so don't get attached to them when you read this book. They do not last lon...

    3.5 stars! I really don't know what to say for this book. The plot seemed rather promising, but the whole book seemed rushed. The characters I loved in the previous books lost their spark, and I think that Maddox got less than 15 lines of speech during the entire book. I was SUPER disa...

    I really loved this series overall, BUT... this one was the weakest of the three. I still enjoyed it, but some of the magic was definitely lost. Still, this was such a unique and creative series and I'm glad I read it. ...

    What a wonderful ending to this fabulous series!!! With great characters, high stakes, and plenty of adventure, this captivating story hooked me on page one - I couldn't turn the pages fast enough! I highly recommend this book, and this series! ...

    In all, the series is a great spin on stories many of us grew up on. I love how the characters come together throughout Ozland. There were times when I was a bit confused as to what was happening, but as I read on, things made more sense. Ozland is a great way to wrap up the series. ...

    Not as good as the first two. I think it is because I didn't really care about the characters that we had a POV from. Also, I don't know if it is because I was listening to the audiobook, but it seems as if the ending was quite rushed and abrupt, like could have been done better. ...

    Such a shocking beginning, I was driven to see how the rest of the store would play out. The only reason I gave it four stars is that there was a little confusion and some slow parts. Overall, would still greatly recommend this series to everyone. ...

    more 3.5ish. It started in chaos, became afterwards as slow as a turtle walking on land and it ended in a whirlwind. But it is a satisfying ending even with all those deaths.. I hope this author has more ideas to write, because this concept was refreshing even though really dark. ...

    Not impressed with the finale as I was with the first two. The action was pushed and quickly finished, the storyline was predictable, the ending was cliche. I was expecting a little more from the author, especially since the second book was interesting and adventurous. I'm disappointe...

    3.5/5 ...

    This finale to the Everland trilogy has Gail (i.e. Dorothy Gale from The Wizard of Oz) teaming up with Ginger to locate the true king while Pete and Doc try to escape their imprisonment in the Bloodred Queen's castle, make a cure for the Horologia virus, and thwart Katt's plans to over...

    3,5 stars, it was fun but I felt like this series was way better at the start and went a little downhill from there. ...

    Is this for real? It's little more than a second draft. It's choppy, doesn't flow well, there are some typos, & the characters all fall flat. Everland was phenomenal, & Umberland great. What happened with Ozland? Did the author get lazy & decide not to keep revising it? Did...

    I think I'm pretty meh about this whole series. I was hoping that Ozland would be the best one, but all three books are a flat 3-star read for me. Not terrible, but not great for me either. And like the other three, there's a lot of telling, not showing, especially in the first half. ...

    A bit of a let down! After the action and tension of the first two books in this series, the finale felt flat. The fighting between the heroes and the evil forces of the Bloodred Queen and Katt dragged on and in. The odds seemed insurmountable. Then suddenly in a matter of a few pag...

    3.5 stars! I really don't know what to say for this book. The plot seemed rather promising, but the whole book seemed rushed. The characters I loved in the previous books lost their spark, and I think that Maddox got less than 15 lines of speech during the entire book. I was SUPER disa...

    I really loved this series overall, BUT... this one was the weakest of the three. I still enjoyed it, but some of the magic was definitely lost. Still, this was such a unique and creative series and I'm glad I read it. ...

    What a wonderful ending to this fabulous series!!! With great characters, high stakes, and plenty of adventure, this captivating story hooked me on page one - I couldn't turn the pages fast enough! I highly recommend this book, and this series! ...

    In all, the series is a great spin on stories many of us grew up on. I love how the characters come together throughout Ozland. There were times when I was a bit confused as to what was happening, but as I read on, things made more sense. Ozland is a great way to wrap up the series. ...

    I did not like this book. Where was the retelling of Oz in this book because I did not see it at all.. The ending was rushed for me and the book dragged in some places.. She also kept killing off the characters so don't get attached to them when you read this book. They do not last lon...

    The beginning almost ruined the book for me. We find out that all these characters have died and it almost feels like, what's the point then? The characters go through so much and then die anyway. And most of them are kids! It just made the book hard to read. The different character po...

    I was really looking forward to this conclusion. I was not looking forward to the deaths of beloved characters, which Spinale has a habit of doing. She did not disappoint. I really liked the first book, Everland, and found the second, Umberland, just good. This time I had high hopes si...

    This finale to the Everland trilogy has Gail (i.e. Dorothy Gale from The Wizard of Oz) teaming up with Ginger to locate the true king while Pete and Doc try to escape their imprisonment in the Bloodred Queen's castle, make a cure for the Horologia virus, and thwart Katt's plans to over...

    3,5 stars, it was fun but I felt like this series was way better at the start and went a little downhill from there. ...

    Is this for real? It's little more than a second draft. It's choppy, doesn't flow well, there are some typos, & the characters all fall flat. Everland was phenomenal, & Umberland great. What happened with Ozland? Did the author get lazy & decide not to keep revising it? Did...

    I think I'm pretty meh about this whole series. I was hoping that Ozland would be the best one, but all three books are a flat 3-star read for me. Not terrible, but not great for me either. And like the other three, there's a lot of telling, not showing, especially in the first half. ...

    Fans of the first two books in this series of childhood fantasy favorites being retold will likely enjoy this one. This steampunk dystopian series shows London a year after the Horologia virus was unleashed by the evil Bloodred Queen from Germany. This virus killed nearly all the adul...

    I'm sorry, but I'm done. This book lost me. And I'm not usually a person who quits on books. I LOVED the first two books of this series, but this one fell so far and hard that I can't get back up. I MIGHT reread the whole series, and then come back to this one. Perhaps that will help ...

    I loved the first two books in the series (Everland and Umberland) so I had high hopes going into this one. However, they were met with disappointment. I could not get into some of the new characters and the old characters I had liked were all killed off. I felt like there were times w...

    A bit of a let down! After the action and tension of the first two books in this series, the finale felt flat. The fighting between the heroes and the evil forces of the Bloodred Queen and Katt dragged on and in. The odds seemed insurmountable. Then suddenly in a matter of a few pag...

    Yay! King Osbourne is ruling! All is good! The event's leading up to the end of the book were crazy! RIP Queen Kat, Hook, and the Blood Queen. And when Pete got shot, I almost cried! I also thought Gail was super courageous finding the King and then going to Lohr. But everyone expecte...

    I was thoroughly looking forward to reading the final instalment in the Everland trilogy and 'Ozland' certainly delivered. Continuing on from the previous book, 'Umberland', 'Ozland' took the story from the viewpoint of Doc, Gail and Katt. I found the story through Gail's eyes most int...

    I am just not a fan of this series it seems. There was too much repetition of the same information over and over for me and the plot was very simplistic. I didn't really feel connected to the main characters, as throughout the series, the main character kept switching. Because of that,...

    While I enjoyed the first two books in the series, I just didn't feel like this one was up to par with the others. The story was interesting but I missed the POVs from Everland and Umberland. I just wasn't as invested in Doc and Gail compared to Alyssa, Maddox, Pete, and Gwen. I wanted...

    3.5 stars! I really don't know what to say for this book. The plot seemed rather promising, but the whole book seemed rushed. The characters I loved in the previous books lost their spark, and I think that Maddox got less than 15 lines of speech during the entire book. I was SUPER disa...

    I really loved this series overall, BUT... this one was the weakest of the three. I still enjoyed it, but some of the magic was definitely lost. Still, this was such a unique and creative series and I'm glad I read it. ...

    What a wonderful ending to this fabulous series!!! With great characters, high stakes, and plenty of adventure, this captivating story hooked me on page one - I couldn't turn the pages fast enough! I highly recommend this book, and this series! ...

    In all, the series is a great spin on stories many of us grew up on. I love how the characters come together throughout Ozland. There were times when I was a bit confused as to what was happening, but as I read on, things made more sense. Ozland is a great way to wrap up the series. ...

    Not as good as the first two. I think it is because I didn't really care about the characters that we had a POV from. Also, I don't know if it is because I was listening to the audiobook, but it seems as if the ending was quite rushed and abrupt, like could have been done better. ...

    I was thoroughly looking forward to reading the final instalment in the Everland trilogy and 'Ozland' certainly delivered. Continuing on from the previous book, 'Umberland', 'Ozland' took the story from the viewpoint of Doc, Gail and Katt. I found the story through Gail's eyes most int...

    I am just not a fan of this series it seems. There was too much repetition of the same information over and over for me and the plot was very simplistic. I didn't really feel connected to the main characters, as throughout the series, the main character kept switching. Because of that,...

    While I enjoyed the first two books in the series, I just didn't feel like this one was up to par with the others. The story was interesting but I missed the POVs from Everland and Umberland. I just wasn't as invested in Doc and Gail compared to Alyssa, Maddox, Pete, and Gwen. I wanted...

    I did not like this book. Where was the retelling of Oz in this book because I did not see it at all.. The ending was rushed for me and the book dragged in some places.. She also kept killing off the characters so don't get attached to them when you read this book. They do not last lon...

    3.5 stars! I really don't know what to say for this book. The plot seemed rather promising, but the whole book seemed rushed. The characters I loved in the previous books lost their spark, and I think that Maddox got less than 15 lines of speech during the entire book. I was SUPER disa...

    I really loved this series overall, BUT... this one was the weakest of the three. I still enjoyed it, but some of the magic was definitely lost. Still, this was such a unique and creative series and I'm glad I read it. ...

    What a wonderful ending to this fabulous series!!! With great characters, high stakes, and plenty of adventure, this captivating story hooked me on page one - I couldn't turn the pages fast enough! I highly recommend this book, and this series! ...

    In all, the series is a great spin on stories many of us grew up on. I love how the characters come together throughout Ozland. There were times when I was a bit confused as to what was happening, but as I read on, things made more sense. Ozland is a great way to wrap up the series. ...

    Not as good as the first two. I think it is because I didn't really care about the characters that we had a POV from. Also, I don't know if it is because I was listening to the audiobook, but it seems as if the ending was quite rushed and abrupt, like could have been done better. ...

    Such a shocking beginning, I was driven to see how the rest of the store would play out. The only reason I gave it four stars is that there was a little confusion and some slow parts. Overall, would still greatly recommend this series to everyone. ...

    more 3.5ish. It started in chaos, became afterwards as slow as a turtle walking on land and it ended in a whirlwind. But it is a satisfying ending even with all those deaths.. I hope this author has more ideas to write, because this concept was refreshing even though really dark. ...

    Not impressed with the finale as I was with the first two. The action was pushed and quickly finished, the storyline was predictable, the ending was cliche. I was expecting a little more from the author, especially since the second book was interesting and adventurous. I'm disappointe...

    The beginning almost ruined the book for me. We find out that all these characters have died and it almost feels like, what's the point then? The characters go through so much and then die anyway. And most of them are kids! It just made the book hard to read. The different character po...

    I was really looking forward to this conclusion. I was not looking forward to the deaths of beloved characters, which Spinale has a habit of doing. She did not disappoint. I really liked the first book, Everland, and found the second, Umberland, just good. This time I had high hopes si...

    This finale to the Everland trilogy has Gail (i.e. Dorothy Gale from The Wizard of Oz) teaming up with Ginger to locate the true king while Pete and Doc try to escape their imprisonment in the Bloodred Queen's castle, make a cure for the Horologia virus, and thwart Katt's plans to over...

    3,5 stars, it was fun but I felt like this series was way better at the start and went a little downhill from there. ...

    Is this for real? It's little more than a second draft. It's choppy, doesn't flow well, there are some typos, & the characters all fall flat. Everland was phenomenal, & Umberland great. What happened with Ozland? Did the author get lazy & decide not to keep revising it? Did...

    I think I'm pretty meh about this whole series. I was hoping that Ozland would be the best one, but all three books are a flat 3-star read for me. Not terrible, but not great for me either. And like the other three, there's a lot of telling, not showing, especially in the first half. ...
