Agnieszka loves her valley home, her quiet village, the forests and the bright shining river. But the corrupted Wood stands on the border, full of malevolent power, and its shadow lies over her life. Her people rely on the cold, driven wizard known only as the Dragon to keep its powers at bay. But he demands a terrible price for his help: one young woman handed over to serve him for ten years, a fate almost as terrible as falling to the Wood. The next choosing is fast approaching, and Agnieszka is afraid. She knows--everyone knows--that the Dragon will take Kasia: beautiful, graceful, brave Kasia, all the things Agnieszka isn't, and her dearest friend in the world. And there is no way to save her. But Agnieszka fears the wrong things. For when the Dragon comes, it is not Kasia he will choose.… (més)

This book went... a lot broader than I was expecting: going in felt more focused on castle and wizard; a return home was to be expected; and of course the satisfyingly creepy Woods; but the story rapidly expanded to court politics and international affairs and centuries-old history. I'm not sure how I feel about this range. Each part of it felt well done at the time but also... over with too soon when I could have enjoyed a whole book just there.

I really liked that her friend continued to play a key role throughout. The romance on the other hand - - really there was enough going on without that too but okay, whatever, if you've got to stick a romance in the book then it was fine I guess. ( )

I loved this book, being a huge fan of the fantasy genre. I loved that, while there was romance, it was not a central theme in this book. I found the magic/ magical system unique and well-developed, and the main protagonist likeable and relatable. ( )
  TeniMorgan | Sep 22, 2022 |
A enchanting story, told by a master storyteller. ( )
  DebCushman | Aug 25, 2022 |
The first half of Uprooted was fantastic. Sadly afterwards it didn't worked for nearly as good as it did in the first pages. ( )
  nicsopana | Aug 22, 2022 |
I listened to this book as an audio book and was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Adventure, magic, evil forest, and a heroine finding her unique strength. I will be looking for other books by this author. ( )

Uprooted is not, as I thought it might be after those first three chapters, any of the following: a Beauty and the Beast story; a somewhat quiet tale about learning one’s magical abilities and negotiating a relationship with one’s teacher; or a story that includes intrinsically-gendered magic. What it is, is a kingdom-level fantasy with great magic and an engaging narrator—which packs a surprising amount of plot into its single volume. I recommend it highly.

The pages turn and the Kindle screens swipe with alacrity. An early expedition into the Wood to rescue a long-missing Queen is particularly white-knuckle. Temeraire fans will be pleased to know that a superb tower-under-siege sequence demonstrates that Novik has lost none of her facility for making complex battle scenes clear and exciting. And Agnieszka remains a scrappy, appealing hero throughout. It’s just that one can’t help but be reminded that Novik’s Temeraire series will conclude next year as a nine-novel cycle and wonder why a writer so skilled at pacing a long, complicated chronicle over multiple books has crammed this story into one.

It’s as if Novik is overcorrecting for the kind of Hollywood bloat that causes studios to split fantasy-novel adaptations into multiple films. Here, she packs an entire trilogy into a single book. Agnieszka’s corridors-of-power adventures in Polnya’s capital have kind of a middle-volume vibe to them, while some fascinating late-breaking revelations about the nature of the Wood definitely feel like they deserve their own dedicated installment. I felt this most particularly in Agnieszka’s evolution as a character. While it’s thrilling in the book’s final third to read about her taking control of her own magical identity as a latter-day Baba Yaga, it does feel as though it’s happened without giving her the opportunity to explore a few blind-alley identities on the way there.
