While civil war looms, a tetchy oracle named Yackle prepares for death. Before her final hour, an enigmatic figure known as Brrr - the Cowardly Lion - arrives searching for information about Elphaba Thropp, the Wicked Witch of the West. As payment, Yackle demands some answers of her own. Brrr surrenders his story: abandoned as a cub, his earliest memories are gluey hazes, and his life's path is no Yellow Brick Road. A Lion Among Men chronicles a battle of wits hastened by the Emerald City's approaching armies. At once a portrait of a would-be survivor and a panoramic glimpse of a world gone shrill with war fever, Gregory Maguire's new novel is written with the sympathy and power that have made his books contemporary classics.Hide synopsis

MORE INFORMATION ON THE WICKED SERIES. HOW WONDERFUL TO FIND THE INFO ON THE LION AND HOW HE DEVELOPED AND PROSPERED.
VERY INTERESTING AND A GREAT READ.
RECOMMEND THIS FOR ALL WICKED FANS. LOOKING FORWARD TO WHAT WILL BE NEXT IN THE SERIES.
This book tells the story of the Cowardly Lion. Brrr comes to the oracle Yackle for answers to Elphaba, Liir and the Grimmerie, just as they are caught between the war between EC and Munchkinland. Yackle is seeking death, but death does not come. Brrr is forced to recollect his life and the mistakes he has made, by telling his story to the oracle. I was really hopeful to find some answers in this third volume, but my satisfaction was not sated. Altogether, this book was a fantastic read for adults.
