L. Frank Baum wrote quite a few novels in his never-dying Oz series - 14 in total - and Glinda of Oz is the final one. It was released in 1920 and is considered to be the last chapter in the Oz franchise, even though some other authors did contribute to it handsomely. Now, just like any other book in the series, this one is all about a dangerous yet exciting journey through the breath-taking landscapes of Oz and beyond.
There's a war "cooking up" between the Skeezers and Flatheads, and the heroes of the realm simply can't let it come to life. Ozma, a dashing beauty and the princess of Oz, along with Dorothy, embark on a long and hazardous journey to try and stop them from killing each other and spilling even more blood. But, they get into all kinds of trouble, and Glinda makes an attempt to rescue them.
She is joined by a bunch of Dorothy's friend that help her in whichever way they can. The two local powers will stop at nothing and want to see each other annihilated. They're located in one of the most perilous corners of Oz, and the path towards 'em is full of traps and menacing thugs. Ozma and her friend fail to persuade the two leaders to put down their arms and become prisoners in a magical island that's located at the very bottom of a lake. Coo-ee-oh, the war-hungry queen, loses in the fight and turns into a swan, leaving the two ladies in quite a pickle.
