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.… (mere)

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. ( )

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.] ( )

Is this a YA novel? The protagonist is 17, but has some pretty hot sex with her wizard teacher who is over 100 years old(but looks young). I liked the magic story, I liked so much of this book, but had a hard time with the Dragon wizard being a total ass to the heroine and she still falls for him. I get a gruff male lead, I am all about Jane Eyre, but how many times does he need to call her an idiot before she just writes him off? Sure their combined magic is hot, and yes, they help each other in numerous life threatening situations, but he is a jerk through the whole story. So, mixed feelings about the romance aspect, but i did like the story and the worldbuilding was amazing. The war scenes were very violent and graphic also. I think i skimmed through a few chapters and got enough of the story without having to hear about the bloody details. ( )

Every ten years, the wizard known as the Dragon demands a girl be sent to his tower to serve him. No one likes the idea of giving up their daughters, but not only is the wizard their lord, they desperately need him to fight back against the Wood, a forest full of monsters and corrupting evil. He always picks the best and the brightest, so everyone is certain that this year he will pick Kasia... including Kasia's best friend Angieszka, until she gets picked instead, and finds herself drawn into the world of magic and the struggle against the Wood like none of the other girls before her.

I utterly adored Novik's Spinning Silver, so I was very much looking forward to reading this one. I can't say it enchanted me quite as much as that one did, and there are some elements of it that didn't work for me quite as well as others. (A sort of rapid time-skip early on, for example, that I wanted more details on, and a romance that I still don't quite know how to feel about.) It's only by comparison that it's at all wanting, though, because overall it's a good, strong, engaging fantasy novel, with a likable main character, an interesting plot, and some cool magical worldbuilding.

Rating: 4/5 ( )

So I…didn’t love this as much as I wanted to. I was super intrigued by the concept of a Polish fairytale retelling! I had also read For the Wolf (which I believed used this as a comp title), and also Novik’s A Deadly Education. Even though I wasn’t a fan of either of the writing styles in those books, I had hoped that at least the story here would make up for it.

It tells the story of young Agnieszka, who grew up with her friends and family in a small village surrounded by evil Woods. In order to keep the sinister magic at bay, a wizard known as the Dragon comes every 10 years to take a girl from the village. Agnieszka is chosen, and they battle the Woods’ evil together when it threatens to corrupt her village, and the people she loves.

So, I enjoyed the beginning. A lot. It really sucked me in, made me want to know more…then once she got taken by the Dragon, it just fell apart for me from there. I admittedly lost interest about halfway through, but decided to push to the end anyway (also because my coworker kindly lent me her copy and I at least wanted to return it to her and say I finished it). I loved the concept. The writing was certainly beautiful at times, if not very info-dumpy and meandering.

The characters and magic system lacked life, for me. I felt like none of them really had distinct personalities except for the Queen and the Dragon, and though I knew a little bit of our MC, I never really felt connected to her. It was written in first person so I should have been able to experience everything alongside her, instead of feeling like I was watching from a distance.

The thing that got me the most was the supposed “romance”! I love romances! But this did not do it for me at all, sadly. The Dragon was an entirely unlikeable character (and not in the sexy bad-boy type way) AND he was hundreds of years older than Agnieszka (though he “looked young”…I’m not a fan of big age gap romances in general), AND he was really nasty to the MC. Verbally and emotionally abusive, even. I saw no reason why she was so attracted to him, except for Stockholm Syndrome. They had zero chemistry. I want to root for the characters to get together in a love story. I didn’t know WTF was going on here and why they were supposedly in love. I just kept picturing The Dragon (who isn’t really a Dragon) as a wrinkly old curmudgeon.

I know Naomi Novik’s stories are loved by many, but perhaps her books are just not my thing, as much as I may love the concept. ( )

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.
