Is he really Elphaba's son? He has her broom and her cape—but what of her powers? In an Oz that, since the Wizard's departure, is under new and dangerous management, can Liir keep his head down long enough to grow up?

    I loved Wicked. But Son of a Witch didn't seem to have a point the way Wicked did for me. I felt emotion for Elphaba. But Liir was just not a character that I enjoyed. I felt, like Liir did, that little of anything in his adult life meant much of anything.

  • Imaginative tale

    Quite possibly one of the best books I've ever read. Dark, witty, magical, political, and even some romance.
