REVIEW: "Heart of Tin" by Danielle Paige
"Heart of Tin" is the latest short story release tying into the Dorothy Must Die series. This is the Tin Man's story, mostly detailing his growing feelings for Dorothy following her first visit to Oz. Paige's portrayal of the Tin Man here is rather forlorn and delusional. There is a certain obsessive, creeper vibe. Upon Dorothy's return, the Tin Man is elated at her return; however, insecurity and jealousy take hold within his devotion to her, which are traits Glinda uses in order to manipulate him. She twists his love for Dorothy into something utterly evil and Paige uses this opportunity to share with readers more details into Oz's dark turn.
Overall, it is a well written story which is key to explaining the Tin Man's demise and his terrorizing actions. This fits in nicely with the two published novels in the series (Dorothy Must Die) as well as the other short stories: No Place Like Home, The Witch Must Burn, and The Wizard Returns. These are all available in eBook format and should be found in Overdrive.
Final rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
