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)

Like her Temeraire series, Naomi Novik’s Uprooted starts with a dragon. But this creature of legend isn’t a wyrm: he’s a human wizard. And the protagonist isn’t a Napoleonic-era English naval captain: she’s a peasant girl.

Uprooted continues to set itself apart as the story progresses. While the Temeraire series is historical fantasy, Uprooted is closer to straight fantasy (despite being set in 16th century Poland). Instead of third-person limited, Novik tells her new tale in first person. And in place of a male-dominated cast, Uprooted features a strong female lead.

This last divergence may have been what stood out most for me. Heroines aren’t new in fantasy, but they’re still far from the norm. And Agnieszka, Uprooted’s peasant girl (and the novel’s narrator), is brave without seeming an idealized caricature. She still gets scared—as she is when the wizard claims her at the beginning of the book. She makes mistakes—as she does when, after growing into a witch under the wizard’s tutelage, she aids one of the realm’s princes in his misguided quest. She’s hopelessly messy. In short, she’s believable.

But Agnieszka’s also extraordinary. It’s her magic that leads the eventual struggle against the Wood, the malevolent forest that serves as the story’s villain. This isn’t a simple good versus evil dynamic, however. There’s a bit of that, but like most of the fantasy clichés Novik employs, she's altered it enough to make Uprooted feel original.

The book shares one other thing with the Temeraire series: it's a great read. And that’s really all you need to keep me coming back for more.

Dragons help, though.

I really like this book and was hoping to give it 5 stars but one event (The protagonist, Agnieszka and the wizard, known as the Dragon Lord have a raving sex scene, which in my opinion was totally unnecessary forced me to take a star away.

The story revolved around Agnieszka and the place she calls home, the valley. It is a idyllic world except for the the edges, where The Wood lives and cast a frightening shadow over the towns that border it. Their valley is watched over and attended to by a wizard, known as The Dragon Lord.

Every ten years The Dragon Lord chooses a young girl to take into his tower. No one knows why, it is just a fact of their lives. They know he never harms them, but when they return after the ten years they come back to the valley towns pack their belongings, say their goodbyes and leave.

Agnieszka and her best friend Kasia have come of age and it is time for the Dragon Lord to choose and take away a new girl. Everyone knows it will be Kasia. She is the brightest, the prettiest, the nicest of all the girls. But the Dragon Lord shocks them all and takes Agnieszka.

Ms. Novak comes from Polish stock and she colors the novel with wonderful Polish touches here there. It reads like fairy-tale and I enjoyed it so much until the above mentioned event ruined it for me.

I have another book on my shelf by Ms. Novak and I am looking forward to reading it. ( )

Much like the heroine herself, this book should not work. It has all the ingredients for something foppish and cliche and yet it is a very good fantasy novel.

Confidently written, well paced, enjoyable (even funny in many places), with refreshingly angst-free protagonists. ( )

Delightful! A sometimes thrilling always interesting romp through Poland’s magical woods. ( )

I really wanted to like this and I thought it started out as a very promising fantasy story. But it dragged at points, taking far longer than was needed to get to its destination. Many of the characters seem to be cardboard cutouts and there's very little here in terms of character dynamics. And the resolution was too quick, easy, and confusing to make much sense, overall. This just didn't hit the mark for me, but I can see how others might find it enjoyable. ( )

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.
