She spends her days surfing at Indigo Beach, playing with her pet unicorn, and occasionally checking in on the tourists vacationing at Rainbow Falls, where she is—technically speaking—in charge. When Dorothy arrives, Polly is less than thrilled. She’d much rather flirt with mysterious surfer Bright than play tour guide to a spoiled wannabe princess. But Rainbow Falls won’t be paradise by the time Dorothy’s done with it. And Polly may have to leave her life of leisure behind, to become the ruler her land needs.Danielle Paige delivers a dark and compelling reimagining of L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, perfect for fans of Cinder by Marissa Meyer, Beastly by Alex Flinn, and Wicked by Gregory Maguire, and follows some of literature’s most beloved characters as their lives intertwine to bring about the downfall of Oz....

    What does rainbow smoke taste like? This one definitely has the best cover! This one we get to see more of Dorothy in it. I found Polly to be a little naive, but I loved her world in this one!!

    Dorothy is as annoying as she always is, but I actually liked the character development of Polychrome in this novella.

    Se me hace tan interesante leer la evolución de Dorothy, como pasa de ser un "amor" a ser completamente malvada y caprichosa. Sinceramente la autora podría seguir escribiendo mini novelas sobre esta saga durante años y yo las leería todas. Muy, muy recomendados estos libros! “We’re fairies, Ozma. We’re supposed to be laughing and dancing and free. We’re supposed to rule like the tides rule the sea.”

    Well I was between books and I still don't have the true next book I am waiting for, so I went into my kindle account and brought up Danielle Paige's Dark Side of the Rainbow! I decided I would finish the prequel novellas before returning to the story at large. Naturally, I was a little rusty about what's gone on in this prequel side of the world, but luckily, it's a series you really can just jump into at any point! All you really need to know is that Dorothy is Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs!In this one, we get to hang out with Polly, who's a fairy and ruler of the Rainbow Falls. She's cousin to Ozma and she's all about having fun and kicking back. So when Dorothy strolls in and says Ozma has taken a little vacay and she's there to fill in, Polly thinks nothing of it. She and Dorothy have fun together, but it's really not long before Polly learns that Dorothy isn't quite put all together. She gets moody and clingy and sort of stalker crazy. And if Polly, our laid back way of life fairy princess is starting to get worried, then you know things are pretty serious! This was simply another installment in the series where the people of Oz at large are slowly learning that Dorothy is not the carefree and sweet little girl she used to be. And Polly is more than willing to do whatever it takes to keep Dorothy from sinking her claws into her kingdom!A fun and quick read that has you shaking your head at the craziness that is Dorothy! Cannot wait to see how this series at large will come to an end! I have my suspicions--that I can only vaguely recall--and will be looking forward to seeing how Amy will get things resolved for Oz for the greater good!Overall Rating 4/5 stars

    Besides the very first prequel novella, this is the only one I've really liked. And it wasn't because of the information we found out, but more of the growth and transformation of Polychrome. Still, hoping we see Bright again in the big finale, because where we left Rainbow Falls truly disturbed my heart more than most of the crazy, dreadful things that have happened in this series.

    Me gustó mucho Polly, no creí que me iba a encariñar con ella jajajaCuando más me olvido de por qué odiaba a Dorothy, estas historias cortas me lo recuerdan 😝

    This is the second optional/prequel book for this month's club! It was a bit of back story about Polychrome. It was good story however once again I had problem with the writing style. I have to say I do know it's a YA series, however the descriptions of the majority of the males in the series is unrealistic, and the females are only concerned with hair / abs. It's quite corny. Still interested in the fulfilment of the story. #yycbookclub

    This was a good one.I have not necessarily enjoyed the novellas for the Dorothy must Die series because they have been about the bad guys. However, this was a fast read, and I enjoyed learning more about Polychrome and seeing her interact with Dorothy.

    Giving this one 3.5 because Polychrome is my fave 🌈

    I really like how the prequels fit in with the novels. I liked Polychrome when she was introduced in the main series and was interested to learn more about her. Her character drastically changed from the beginning of the novella and the end. I also liked that she was flawed but likable. I wonder if some of the new characters in these prequels (like Bright) will make an appearance in some of the later books. This little novella, while short, perfectly managed to convey how twisted Dorothy is.

    Another lack luster novella. They seem endless now. Glad this was a "free" read. Paige seems to be dragging out this series in all forms - first with the extended fourth book and now with the endless novellas.

    The book was good read it in two days!! Was shorter then I would have liked but good to read anyways.

    So, I still agree with my previous statement, that there are only 2 or 3 out if the 9 short stories that are actually well-written, exciting and adding more to the original Dorothy Must Die series. Fortunately, this is one of those stories. Pollychrome is a great character and she has a very different personality than the other characters we meet. Since she had a small part in the original series, it made sense to get more background about her.

    "It’s good to try out new things."This is probably one of my favorite novellas, since Polychrome is one of the characters from the original Oz series that I absolutely adored, since she was such a vibrant free spirit. In this darker world it was interesting to see how her character come to react and exist.

    3.5 stars. I enjoyed this installment more as the story went on, but it was a rough start and for a novella it took a bit too long for me to really get into the character of Polychrome. I enjoyed the confrontation with Dorothy and the changes in Polly's character so not a bad read but could have been better.

    Princess Polychrome was one of the most intriguing characters from the novels so I was very happy to hang out with her and her precious panther-unicorn, Heathcliff, again in this prequel novella. The descriptions of her queendom were breathtakingly beautiful and I enjoyed her story and clash with Dorothy. 5/5 stars for my second-favorite novella!

    Loved reading about Poly and learning more about The rainbow magic/world. It can be slow, but I understand the pacing, because it matches Polys personality. This was another great addition to the series.

    Another awesome prequel to the "Dorothy Must Die" series! For the first time in the various prequels, someone stood up to Dorothy & won. Hopefully Rainbow Falls stays hidden & safe throughout the rest of the series, even after the war that's coming. A great fast read.

    Yeah, it was ok. I was pretty annoyed with Polly through most of it. And Dorothy as well. I kind of forget who Bright is. It's been too long since I read the last book, I guess.

    Polychrome was a surprisingly interesting character - this was one of the better prequel novellas in this series.

    Awesome back story on princess Pollychrome. She is the fairytale version of a flower child. Plus, I am always ready for a good prequel :)
