Tin is the most famous fae in Oz for all the wrong reasons. Cursed with a stone heart, he is the perfect assassin: ruthless, efficient, and merciless with thousands of kills to his name. When his old friend, Lion, offers him a small fortune to deliver Dorothy to the South for his lover to wear the girl’s head as her own, Tin doesn’t hesitate to accept the unsavory deal. Do Tin is the most famous fae in Oz for all the wrong reasons. Cursed with a stone heart, he is the perfect assassin: ruthless, efficient, and merciless with thousands of kills to his name. When his old friend, Lion, offers him a small fortune to deliver Dorothy to the South for his lover to wear the girl’s head as her own, Tin doesn’t hesitate to accept the unsavory deal. Dorothy Gale lost everything—her family to illness, her dog to age, and now her farm to foreclosure. The entire town thought she was crazy for believing in a faerie world called Oz, but even after ten years have passed, she can’t help knowing she was right. So when an emerald green portal opens in her wheat field, she jumps at the opportunity to return to the only place she ever felt like she belonged. Tin wasn’t expecting a grown woman to step through the portal, just as Dorothy wasn’t expecting Tin to have his stone heart back, but Oz holds more unexpected things than either could have imagined. Magic has hidden dangerous lies behind glamour, trapped innocents in curses, and left the land of Oz in turmoil—none more so than the South. As Tin and Dorothy travel together for the second time in a decade, their lives begin to make sense again. Soon, they must decide who to give their loyalties to before Lion takes Dorothy’s head and Tin’s cursed heart is forever doomed. Perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas and Laura Thalassa.

    Tin is the first book in the Faeries of Oz series written by Candace Robinson and Amber R. Duell. It releases in the late fall of 2020, and I read an ARC of this one and Lion, the prequel to the series. I've always been a fan of the Wizard of Oz, but now my interest is even more renewed. Who wouldn't love a much more adult-themed version of hungry and vengeful cast of thrilling characters. So.. shall we dive in? To catch us all up, not all is well in Oz after Dorothy wakes up from her visit. Was Tin is the first book in the Faeries of Oz series written by Candace Robinson and Amber R. Duell. It releases in the late fall of 2020, and I read an ARC of this one and Lion, the prequel to the series. I've always been a fan of the Wizard of Oz, but now my interest is even more renewed. Who wouldn't love a much more adult-themed version of hungry and vengeful cast of thrilling characters. So.. shall we dive in? To catch us all up, not all is well in Oz after Dorothy wakes up from her visit. Was it real? If you've read more books in the series, or you've seen Wicked, you know a lot more than most. But this takes the story into a whole other dimension. What if the there more than two wicked witches? How about if Oz weren't such a nice man? And when Dorothy leaves, who would have known the place turned so deadly? Yep... Dorothy left a mess behind, and the trio of Lion, Crow, and Tin couldn't fix it. Glinda tried, but the other witches became too strong in the fight for control. Just how do all the faeries keep this place in line? Well... you'll have to find out. This is not your children's version of the story. In the prequel, we read about Lion's sexual rampage with a certain witch. In Tin, we know certain parts of him are not made of tin... and he is hungry for something, only who would've thought it would be Dorothy! She's all grow up now, early twenties, and even she has an appetite for the flesh. When she finds herself back in Oz, nothing makes sense. Lion and Tin are fighting over who will either love her or kill her. Crow has other things to consider when it comes to Dorothy's new quest. Especially when the truth about where she really comes from finally gets outed. Holy @#&! This was unexpected, but I dare say.... if you can deal with a complete re-telling of the story, want to mix the classic innocence with murder, lust, and revenge... you will find a new series to crave. While I've read several of Robinson's books before, this was the first set with a new co-writer, Amber R. Duell. The story is seamless, so I can't tell that two different authors were involved. The imagination is top notch. The crossing of genres keeps it flowing very quickly. Honestly, it only took two hours to read, and it's over 200 pages long. I didn't want to put it down, and now I have to wait until 2021 for the next book in the series. Looks like there will be four so far... can't wait! Definitely read the prequel first, and you'll know if this series is for you! Congrats to the authors on what looks like a great success coming their way.

    All he wanted was a heart, but now it has been turned to stone and Tin has become the perfect killing machine, no remorse, no guilt, no caring. When he is given a job to capture Dorothy, he never imagined she would have grown into a feisty and beautiful woman, after all, it had been less than two decades since she returned to Kansas, unaware of the disaster she left behind in Oz. Now, Lion has hired Tin to bring his mistress Dorothy’s head!

Now, Lion has hired Tin to bring his mistress Dorothy’s head! Nope, this is not how we all imagined Oz would be back in the day when we were innocent young readers. Welcome to the dark and twisted world created for adults from Candace Robinson and Amber R. Duell, enter with caution, you have been warned…TIN is going to blow your mind! Dorothy is all grown up, her life in Kansas is in shambles, so when she is sucked back into the Land of Oz, pretty sure she was unprepared for what she found or how she was drawn to Tin, the sexy fae looking for a piece (or two) of her…literally. Can you say, hot, hot, hot? Dorothy isn’t a kid anymore, the Wizard isn’t so wizardly and there are witch wars going on, fighting for territory and control! YIKES! What of the Yellow Brick Road? What of the friendly scarecrow without a brain? Wait until you see the ‘new’ Crow and hear HIS story! We’re all adults, right? Get ready to see the Land of Oz in a whole new light! This writing duo has given us “the rest of the story” and it is wickedly entertaining! I received a complimentary ARC edition from Candace Robinson! This is my honest and voluntary review.

    I went into this expecting a fun romp through an oz sequel with maybe some tam lin vibes, and okay, that's on me. It's never actually a Tam Lin retelling. I should know this by now. This was at least competently edited on a technical level even if every character is terrible, Ozma is completely rewritten, and nothing makes sense. But again, I should have known this would happen.

Dorothy Gale's life hasn't been the same since returning from Oz. Everyone assumes she's insane for talking about the Emerald City, but Dorothy knows the truth. Ten years later, Dorothy is struggling to keep the family farm afloat, but when the bank shows up, she wishes she were back in Oz. LO AND BEHOLD! A portal opens... Hooked yet? I was! After stepping through the portal, things really pick up in the book. Massive world-building takes place to ensure we believe this truly is Oz, but not like the one we [or even Dorothy], remembers. Robinson & Duell effortlessly painted a vivid, decaying world in a way that was quite hauntingly beautiful! Tim Burton springs to mind with some of their eerie creations such as Wheelers [disfigured/distorted beings who have wheels for hands and feet, plus their mouths are sewn shut!] Honestly, the world aspect was eerily wonderful, verging on an almost horror-like setting. Dorothy starts off as a naïve character that continuously makes poor decisions, but I'll say she develops into a powerful character. One that we can see blossom right before our eyes! She isn't the only familiar character that sweeps onto the scene, we see Tin, Lion, and Crow! Tin's life changed just like Dorothy's, except instead of a farmer–or even a smiling face–he's now the kingdom's fiercest assassin. Blood stains his hands and iron scars his face. I adored him so much. He's grumbly, takes no crap, and is a force to be reckoned with. Watching him interact with his mark, Dorothy, was really the highlight of the book for me NOT GONNA LIE HERE... -smooshes them together- There are so many twists and turns, some I didn't see coming and phewwww...the last three quarters of the book flew by for me. I already want the second book in my hands [looking at you authors!] Overall, I highly recommend this read for those looking for a true New Adult Dark Fantasy! There is romance in it, action, betrayal, gore, creepy creatures, and so many wonderful things about this book! Five Savvy Crowns! For fans of Splintered by A.G. Howard, A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas, and Evil Queen by Gena Showalter

This should be to read in order as prequel novella tells where it all started. World was brilliant and was heart of the book. There were flying monkeys, cursed faeries, poisonous fairy fruits, deadly and creepy wheelers, bad witches, headless witch who decapitated beautiful women so she could change heads like clothes, lying and pretentious Oz, glamor, and magic. It was all amazing to read. I liked how each territory were described and what it had to suffer due to clash for power and lands. There was lots of killing and so much blood and gore. It’s definitely not the world from children’s world of Oz. There were many twists and turns. I could guess turns but not what waited after that. End was perfect with happy ending and upcoming journey. Overall, Tin was fast paced, dark and hot new adult fantasy filled with immersive world, creepy creatures and many surprising turns.

    TIN.... Tin, tin, tin, how much has he changed after all these years. In this Wizard-of-Oz-inspired story, Tin isn't the shy man we met in the original story. Now, several years have passed and he's turned into a real man, an assassin who only cares about money. So, when also re-imagined Lion hires Tin to capture Dorothy for a big chunk of dough, Tin is IN. What could he lose? Capture a little girl? Piece of emerald pie. On the other hand, Dorothy has changed, too. Remember that sweet farm girl? TIN.... Tin, tin, tin, how much has he changed after all these years.

On the other hand, Dorothy has changed, too. Remember that sweet farm girl? Not anymore. Now, she's grown into a strong gorgeous woman with financial problems. Luckily, she finds a gate to Oz and escapes to the only happy place she knows... or knew, because Ozland is a dump. TIN is like a sexy-dystopian version of Oz, where everybody's hottter, meaner, and grrrrrr. When Tin meets Dorothy, sparks fly and he confronts a big conflict: Deliver gorgeous, hot Dorothy for a sure beheading, or keep her safe, get no dough, and confront Lion's wrath and who knows what else. Overall, TIN is a great Oz-inspired story with a dystopian Oz world where everything goes.

    I knew I would enjoy Tin as soon as I read the prequel Lion. This is a darker twist on the Oz we all know. Tin is the perfect character for those of us that always fall for the tortured souls. The family dynamics in the story were a total surprise. I can't wait to read the next book. I don't reread many books. But, this series will be worthy of rereading.

Dorothy Gale lost everything—her family to illness, her dog to age, and now her farm to foreclosure. The entire town thought she was crazy for believing in a faerie world called Oz, but even after ten years have passed, she can’t help knowing she was right. So when an emerald green portal opens in her wheat field, she jumps at the opportunity to return to the only place she ever felt like she belonged. Tin wasn’t expecting a grown woman to step through the portal, just as Dorothy wasn’t expecting Tin to have his stone heart back, but Oz holds more unexpected things than either could have imagined. Magic has hidden dangerous lies behind glamour, trapped innocents in curses, and left the land of Oz in turmoil—none more so than the South. As Tin and Dorothy travel together for the second time in a decade, their lives begin to make sense again. Soon, they must decide who to give their loyalties to before Lion takes Dorothy’s head and Tin’s cursed heart is forever doomed. ‘As he sauntered back toward the brownie’s house to collect the rest of his fee, leaving a red trail in his wake, he whistled the end of the dwarf’s song.’ This book was deliciously good, the cover is to die for and the writing is whimsical! It’s the Oz like you’ve never seen before. Fae, Witches, and grown up, seductive and fiery characters from the original Wizard of Oz story but with a naughty side. Yum! “There’s no place like home,” she said through clenched teeth. “There’s no place like home, Dorothy. Because this is the only place that’s real. Oz never existed.” She breathed heavily, remembering the needles, the pokes, the prods, the medicines, the shock therapy—all of it.’ This book was quite the trip! There were parts that were quite disturbing, especially with the writing style. Very descriptive. And I loved every part of it! Seeing this retelling and diving into more of what happened to Dorothy, Tin Man, Lion, and Crow after they defeated the Wicked Witch was amazing! Finding out more and more about each character enchants you and sucks you right in, feeling the need to devour more of the story. ‘And, for the record, my brain is perfectly intact because I took the time to nurture it. You let your heart harden, just as Lion let his courage deprive him of a real connection with anyone.” It reminded me of a mixture of Laura Thalassa’s ‘Pestilence’ (Four Horsemen series), and Sarah J Maas’ ‘A Court of Thorns’ and Roses series. I can’t wait to see the rest of the series and hopefully have a chance to review them. Book Release Date: December 9, 2020 5/5 Stars!

I’m thrilled to have been given an advanced copy for my honest review, as this story is one of a kind and absolutely captivating. I love spin offs, and this is one of the best I’ve read. It’s a quick easy read, I devoured it in two sittings. What I love best is that it isn’t exactly a re-telling.

I’m thrilled to have been given an advanced copy for my honest review, as this story is one of a kind and absolutely captivating. I love spin offs, and this is one of the best I’ve read. It’s a quick easy read, I devoured it in two sittings. What I love best is that it isn’t exactly a re-telling. Tin takes place in OZ ten years after Dorothy's first visit. ‘Tin’ is infact the tin man, except he isn’t made completely of tin like the story entails. He’s heart is hardened to stone, and the metal that he’s marked with is a result of punishment for killing the wrong individuals. You see, a lot has happened in OZ in the last ten years, and he’s become the best assassin around. He’s been sent on a quest by none other than Lion himself to collect Dorothy and bring her back once again. Except this time her intended fate is much more gruesome than merely killing a simple little evil witch. Lion’s main squeeze is as evil as evil can possibly be and she intends to add Dorothy’s head to her wardrobe collection. You heard me right, she wants to wear it. Not only that but the yellow brick road is jam packed with action from one turn to the next. Once Tin has opened the portal and brought Dorothy back through, everything slowly changes and their connection comes as a bit of a surprise to them both. Dorothy is no longer the chubby faced girl she once was. She’s a woman now, one who has undergone her fair share of trauma and misfortune. She’s beautiful, and not to be messed with. Rather than running from the vicious, heartless killer that Tin has become, she’s drawn to and curious of him. The two share quite a journey and the plot twists along the way are breathtaking!! I loved this book! I could tell more, but I don’t want to give anything away as the plot reveals are layed out so very perfectly! I can’t wait until the next book in the series comes out!! Kudos to Robinson and Duell on a phenomenal story. If I could give it more stars I would!!

Oz has become a lot darker and more dangerous, and it's more violent. The language is coarse at times, and I had some trouble "forgetting" the children's book and only focusing on this (new) adult version. I have so many memories of "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" and it was difficult readjusting my brain. This is of course personal and has nothing to do with the writing. With that said, I think it would have worked just as well without all the cursing... I really like Tin, although he's unscrupulous in the beginning. Dorothy is annoyingly naive and doesn't believe Tin when he tells her that Oz is a dangerous place. Everything was peaceful and fine when she left ten years ago; how is it possible it has changed that much?! She adjusts with time, and soon Dorothy is capable of taking care of herself, without Tin and his axe. Not that he's planning on leaving her side... There are a lot of twist and turns happening to keep my interest peaked. Some very surprising, to say the least... Hopefully I can leave the children's version of the book behind me and fully enjoy the next installment of this series! *I received an ARC from the authors and I'm giving my honest review.*

The version of Oz they have built is just so creative from the way each character was affected by the original curse, to the different sides and the emerald city being affected. The magic in they made is absolutely beautiful and mesmerizing. The twists in this book really took me by surprise I can honestly say, I did not see any of it coming it was like a big ol' smack to the face and I LOVED it. Now, lets talk about the characters it was such a nice and refreshing take on TIN, CROW, LION, and DOROTHY, all of them had their attributes and it was honestly completely different than any kind of retelling of Oz I have come across, that being said I've only read one other retelling and i loved that too, but this is about TIN. and TIn and Dorothy both grew as their own and together, it was so beautiful and angsty i loved every bit of it. the ending was amazing and it left my heart warm and ready for more, I cannot wait for the next books. You should really give this book a chance, I promise you will not regret it.

    The Wizard of Oz was a huge part of my childhood. I was obsessed, watched the movie every day, obsessing over the Wicked Witch of the West and the Tin Man. And this story brought back all the feels and love I had for the original story of Oz! It did NOT disappoint. This story had such a unique (albeit creepy!) take on Oz and the world building was beautifully done as was the relationship between characters. The parental reveals? MIND BLOWING.

I can’t wait to learn more about his and his lover’s story in the next book. You can bet I’ll be reading this story again. 🖤 And again.

    What an enchanting read. Tin had me from the very first page. The pace was such that I hated having to put the book down as I couldn't wait to read what was happening next. The characters were well thought out, although nothing like their characters in The Wizard of Oz / Dorothy's Adventures in Oz (depending on which book you read/movie you saw). Except for Dorothy, that is. She is still as pure of heart as she was when she first entered Oz as a child, but there is more to Dorothy than she even k What an enchanting read.

I can't wait to read Crow, the next book in this series. I received a free Advanced Reader Copy of Tin: Faeries of Oz Book 1 from the author and have chosen to leave a review.

    I cannot resist retellings, especially if they include Fae, so as soon as I read the synopsis I knew I was going to love this one. I really enjoyed it, I really loved Dorothy and Tin and Crow, but especially Tin. This retelling was definitely on the darker side, there are some really macabre moments. I really loved that the story had grown up just like Dorothy has in the time since her first visit to Oz. Tin was a really interesting character and I loved that we got to have some chapters from hi I cannot resist retellings, especially if they include Fae, so as soon as I read the synopsis I knew I was going to love this one.

I really loved that the story had grown up just like Dorothy has in the time since her first visit to Oz. Tin was a really interesting character and I loved that we got to have some chapters from his point of view. Switching between Tin and Dorothy really added to the story - the pacing was spot on and I honestly didn't want to put it down. As well as incredible world building - I mean the mixture of Fae lore and Oz worked so very well, there were some really interesting characters, the villains especially. It really was a case of love to hate the villains, they were beyond evil and there were some moments that were incredibly creepy. I am pretty sure I am going to have nightmares about the Wheelers with the ribbons... If you like your retellings with more than a hint of darkness then I would definitely recommend Tin. I loved it, can see myself rereading it, and I cannot wait for the next book!

    Dark and twisty take on OZ with faeries? Yes, please. I loved this unique “sequel” to the Wizard it Oz story we all know and love. I found Dorthy’s character relatable and fell for Tin’s darkness. And the villains were delightfully dark. Collecting heads? Gory in a very good way. I’ll definitely be looking for the sequel when it comes available.

    I really wish I could have given this book a higher rating. This book should have been a perfect read for me. A combination of my love of fairy tales and fae folklore with one of my favourite children's stories, The Wizard Of Oz! I even played Dorothy in a play of The Wizard of Oz when I was 10 so I have always felt a connection with it. I stuck with this book, and will probably read any more in the series, for the plot and the characters.

A combination of my love of fairy tales and fae folklore with one of my favourite children's stories, The Wizard Of Oz! I even played Dorothy in a play of The Wizard of Oz when I was 10 so I have always felt a connection with it. I stuck with this book, and will probably read any more in the series, for the plot and the characters. This books is a dark version of Oz where the characters aren't made of tin or straw, but are fae who were cursed with a stone heart, no courage and a scrambled mind. We join these character 10 years after Dorothy's first trip to Oz where she helps them break the curses. Now, 10 years on, Tin's heart is stone again and he's become a deadly assassin. An assassin who is hired to bring Dorothy back to Oz so a witch can steal her head. It's sounds so good! I so wanted it to be amazing!!! Unfortunately, I felt the plot and the characters were let down by poor writing. It's far from the worst writing I've ever read but there are sentances that I couldn't help but cringe at. Not just typos, which are bothersome enough on their own and evident throughout, but the description was lacking. I don't mean that I wanted more landscape description, but, just as an example, Dorothy is sitting next to Tin on a bed at one point and in the next paragraph her body is pressed against his with no explanation of how she got there. This sort of slip happens more than once and it does let the book down by pulling the reader out of the wonderful world that has been created. And this book has the most cringe worthy sex scene I've ever read. I honestly almost stopped reading at that point. I'm glad I didn't, but I do hope any further books don't have sex scenes like that one. Overall, I enjoyed it because its such a good idea! But I certainly wouldn't highly recommend it.

    You will never look at Oz the same ... This was a fast-paced story with plenty of great twists. This is Oz as I never would have imagined it, but I love the way the authors reimagined this classic tale and the characters and made everything darker, bloodier, and sexier. And ... FAE!!! That really tells you all you need to know.

    This book swept me up and refused to let me go! Dark, sexy and an original story, Candace and Amber write flawlessly together, creating an Oz we have never seen before- but I loved SO MUCH! Pick up this book ASAP- you won't be disappointed! This book swept me up and refused to let me go!

    This was an ok read for me. I liked the cover and the idea of the Tin man being Fae, but it just did not read well. I found myself rushing through most of the book. I think maybe I am too familiar with the original story that all the twist and changes of this retelling were simply too bothersome for me to follow. Didn't really like Dorothy at all. (view spoiler)[ It was too much of a stretch for me to have her pimp herself out in the beginning to her landlord's son. Forgive me for the fallacies This was an ok read for me.
