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.… (mais)

dnf’d this bad boy at page 19. normally i would give the book WAY way more time than that, i know it takes time to adjust. but between the terribly janky and boring writing style/narrative, the abuse “disguised” as romance, and then what i heard about there being an attempted rape scene and an adult-minor relationship (like come ON people, when will we cut the whole she was 17 and he was an ageless powerful immortal being bs??? him looking young doesn’t make it ok????)….yeah i couldn’t do it. i settled for reading some excerpts and other reviews (positive and negative) and a synopsis to see what i’d be missing by not reading it. and ya know what? that’s fine. why should i waste my time and energy reading a book that will ultimately just trigger me? i was already uncomfortable when the MC (sorry i can’t remember how to spell her name >.

I love a good fantasy read with an emphasis on nature and magic. It is well written and reads like a fairy tale with lots of delightful imagery. ( )
  RuthInman123 | Apr 7, 2024 |
I'm doing the audiobook only this time around and love the narration. It's nice to hear a non-American or -British accent and I feel that it adds to the story.

Beautiful story. ( )
  jazzbird61 | Feb 29, 2024 |
Nice fantasy novel about a young girl learning to use magic and not quite following the established magical rules.

A little bit Beauty & the Beast plus dangerous magical woods and fierce battles.

I am pretty sure this is a stand alone but I wouldn't mind reading more. ( )
  hmonkeyreads | Jan 25, 2024 |
Part of what sets this novel apart from others in the fantasy genre is its Eastern European setting, on the border between a thinly-disguised Poland and Russia. But much of it also treads familiar fantasy themes. I enjoyed it a lot, nonetheless.
[Audiobook note: The reader has a heavy East European accent, which I thought added a lot to the story. But she also has a short, choppy cadence to her reading (as if perhaps she was still learning English?), which I thought diminished a bit from the story. So be forewarned: some patience is required on your part, but is rewarded overall.] ( )

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.
