Long before Dorothy…there was Glinda. Glinda fancied herself a powerful sorceress. She thought that her experiment was harmless. But now that the nightmares are unshackled and beyond her control, she knows better. The Wizard’s dreams are rewriting the magic and the very nature of Oz itself. While his body wastes away, the Wizard’s soul is lost in the mysterious dreamlands. To save the Wizard, Glinda undertakes a desperate journey across the land and into the mysterious dreamlands as she joins her sworn enemy to save the life of the man they both love. In this spellbinding conclusion to the Witch Queens trilogy, Glinda must build a coalition of former enemies, battle those that she once considered friends, and challenge the immutable forces of time and magic. If the Wizard dies with his soul in the dreamlands, the Land of Oz will be shackled to his nightmares forever. In The Witch Queens, Glinda was orphaned and on the run from the Wicked Witches - The Wicked Witch of the East, Kalinya; The Wicked Witch of the West, Ondri-baba; and, in the Emerald City, Mombi. She found an ally in Oscar Diggs, the Wonderful Wizard of Oz, discovered her inner strength, fought against the Witches, and became a force for good in the Land of Oz. And then in Crown of the Dreamer, Glinda used her power to break down the barriers of dream and delve into the Wizard’s secret nightmares. This betrayal sent the Wizard into the arms of a disguised Witch and launched a war that fractured the fragile peace in Oz. Glinda’s magic power grew as she discovered weapons unlike any Oz had known before. In her hands, the weapons threatened to destroy everything. To stop the war, the exhausted Wizard took the magic, and in so doing, unleashed his nightmares on the land, causing upheavals and cataclysmic destruction. Now, in Emerald Spectacles, the spellbinding conclusion to the Witch Queens trilogy, Glinda must join forces with her mortal enemy, the Wicked Witch of the East, to save the life of the man they both love. Her desperate journey takes her to the deepest secrets of the Land of Oz, to the depths of the unknown dreamlands, and challenges everything that she holds dear. Glinda must build a coalition of enemies, battle those that she once considered friends, and challenge the immutable forces of time and magic. If the Wizard dies with his soul in the dreamlands, the Land of Oz will be host to his nightmares forever. However, success only guarantees survival, not a happy ending.
