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)

Swinging too and fro between well trodden tropes, dull cliché and breathtaking originality this is a delightful tale of the struggle between good, evil and deluded. ( )

Uprooted is the type of updated old world fairy tale that I love. If you stripped the story down to it's bare bones, it could easily be the kind of story found in Grimm's Fairy Tales. However, Naomi Novik adds the deep friendship of Agnieszka and Kasia and a touch of "Beauty and the Beast" style romance in such a way you would think she is herself a witch, and you've become spellbound. I'm not talking about the Disney version of a fairy tale, though. This is definitely an adult book.

Besides the friendship, I think what I love the most about this story is the Wood being the enemy. Perhaps because my all-time favorite book, The Hobbit, also includes a sinister forest, and there's just something about the woods in general that is both inviting and slightly menacing at the same time. There is no "slightly" where the Wood is concerned, but it does lure people into its shade when it's not grabbing and taking them, never to return.

I highly recommend getting the audiobook and bumping up the speed a bit (the narrator, Julia Emelin, talks too slowly IMO), unless you already know how to pronounce Slavic names or don't care. I think the audiobook helped bring me further into the world of the story, but there were several people complaining about the narrator's heavy accent on the Sword and Laser discussion forums. Regardless of the edition, if you love fairy tales, you'll love Uprooted. ( )

grrm "I liked her characters but the story rushed by a bit too fast for my taste; I would have liked a longer book, where the characters might have had a bit more room to breathe. And I was seriously disappointed by the ending, wherein several important revelations came out of nowhere."

The characters were ok. The main character was a bit of a Mary Sue. The love interest had potential but ended up mediocre. Prince Marek was endlessly annoying despite the author trying to make us feel bad for him for some reason. Kasia was probably one of the most interesting characters in the book but was reduced to almost a tool of sorts which was disappointing. All the other characters were mostly easy to forget and nothing special. Unfortunately I didn't feel particularly fond of any character.

The story was a good idea. The "bad guy" is the Wood, not a person or singular being. There were some fun parts to read and some interesting parts. The writing style was fine but nothing too special. Unfortunately I felt like everything was rushed, especially all the action at the end. This almost felt like it should have been two books. We could have learned more about characters and the world, the ending wouldn't have to be rushed, and the relationships could be better developed. As it was, the romance (while a very small part of the book) was one of the weakest parts. I swear it came out of nowhere and was very disappointing.

I did enjoy reading this. The plot was interesting enough for me to enjoy this and I love that the woods are kind of a character as well. I also love fairy tale retellings so it has that going for it. Overall enjoyable but not amazing. ( )

So glad I picked this up at the airport right after reading [b:The Thinking Woman's Guide to Real Magic|16158565|The Thinking Woman's Guide to Real Magic|Emily Croy Barker|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1356093770s/16158565.jpg|21998981]. This feels like that same idea done right, with a better plot, better pacing, better characters and better world building - I loved the slavic references.
And the magic in this book! Scrumptious, tactile, so, so, so well developed! ( )

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.
