I love The Takers because it’s the first book and it started Oz on his journey, but it in a lot of ways, getting a great review for the follow-up books makes me feel much better. You never know if you’re going to piss off your readers and lose them for good. This one is for the third book in the series, The Pure.
4.0 out of 5 stars My favorite of the Oz Chronicles so far, March 31, 2009Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)This review is from: The Pure: Book Three of the Oz Chronicles (Paperback)
I didn’t think Ridley would top THE TAKERS because the first book of the Oz Chronicles is so wonderful, but I must say THE PURE is my favorite so far. Most of the action concerning Oz takes place in the mind, and even the struggles of the other characters are emotional more than physical (though there is plenty of action to keep teen readers turning pages). I’m a sucker for redemption stories, and THE PURE certainly is that. I hope Ridley keeps going with this theme in future installments. My only real disappointment was finding out the Oz Chronicles is not a trilogy, which I didn’t realize until I encountered the cliffhanger on the last page! Then again, it’s good to know there’s more to come.
I hope you had an awesome July 4! I did and then some. Spent the day with the lovely Mia and spotted this picture of Kristen Stewart catching up on the latest edition of the Oz Chronicles, The Land of the Dead. Oddly enough, I spotted it after I created it in Photoshop!
This was a bit of surprise for me. I went to Amazon this morning and discovered that The Land of the Dead, Book Four of the Oz Chronicles is available for sale. I had no idea it would happen that fast. We didn’t even have time to put together a ribbon cutting or put together one of those fancy red carpet events. Oh, well. What are you going to do?
I did send a copy to my buddy Jen while she was hanging out in an undisclosed cold weather location. She sent me a picture of her with the book. She’s cool like that. We talked about the book and Photoshop.
Book Description: In the fourth installment of the Oz Chronicles, Oz Griffin continues his efforts to restore the world he destroyed. But, when Oz and his band of warriors are led to an abandoned Southern mansion, they encounter a serial killer and become infected with an almost uncontrollable urge to feed … on each other. With only nine days to find the cure, Oz must travel to the Land of the Dead and follow in the serial killer’s footsteps. Will Oz survive the journey?
Come hell or high water I am uploading the files this week! Book Four of the Oz Chronicle is here… well, it’s here at my house. I’m making my last rewrites tomorrow, and should have all the pieces in place to start turning the publishing wheels that will make ti available to all of you who have waited so patiently. It is here.
Now, I’ll let the band Europe express this moment in a song.
Just a quick note because I’m winding down on the rewrites for Book Four of the Oz Chronicles. It will be out soon. I’m going to give out five signed copies before they are available for sale. Haven’t worked out the details yet, but I let you know how you can get one soon.
My absence from the blog lately means that I am working on final edits for The Land of the Dead; Book Four of the Oz Chronicles. I have one section to rewrite, and I should be done. I’ve been posting a lot of videos as of late because they are quick and keep you guys coming back. I’ll add some original material soon. In the meantime, enjoy this movie trailer spoof for Iron Baby. This is actually a clever idea that mixes in some exceptional CG talent.
Originally, I had a targeted word count of 65,000 words, but I amended it to 60,000 shortly after. Turns out, I should have stuck with the original estimate. On pace to pass 65,000 words today and complete the book.
