Son of a Witch
Author
Gregory Maguire
Review
A beautifully written and thought provoking book, Son of a Witch is the second book in the Wicked series. Though it was detailed and proved Maguire to be one of the best written authors of this time, it was not as good as the first book otherwise known as Wicked.   Find it in the catalog!
