A dark enchantment blights the land in the award-winning Uprooted - a enthralling, mythic fantasy by Naomi Novik, author of the Temeraire series.
Agnieszka loves her village, set deep in a peaceful valley. But the nearby enchanted forest casts a shadow over her home. Many have been lost to the Wood and none return unchanged. The villagers depend on an ageless wizard, the Dragon, to protect them from the forest's dark magic. However, his help comes at a terrible price. One young village woman must serve him for ten years, leaving all they value behind.
Agnieszka fears her dearest friend Kasia will be picked at the next choosing, for she's everything Agnieszka is not - beautiful, graceful and brave. Yet when the Dragon comes, it's not Kasia he takes.

Not great really, billed as being funny & how the article propels her life for 12 months, not really connected & not particularly funny but tried to stick with it, got half way through & got fed up of going backwards & forwards & into her past, sorry but didn't grab me!! 😒
Really thoroughly enjoyed this book. The main character is genuine and likeable, the plot interesting and unusual. I've never read any polish fairytales so this felt like a completely new and fresh take on the fantasy genre for me. Polished it off in 2 sittings!
This book is incredible, a masterpiece! Thank you Naomi for writing such an epic tale. Would love to see this made into a film! A must for all Game of Thrones fans ;)
