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.… (lisätietoja)

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. ( )
  MrsHammyMax | Sep 4, 2021 |
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. ( )

I meant to write so much about this book, but then the world of 2020 swallowed me whole. I'm deeply saddened by it, too, because there was a lot that I deeply liked/loved/was mleh about. I liked how this one, unlike [b:Spinning Silver|36896898|Spinning Silver|Naomi Novik|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1513872748l/36896898._SX50_.jpg|58657620], didn't automatically turn itself straight into its love story only.

I remember loving the ending, where we get the inference of where the couple is going, but we don't see it yet. I remember most being disappointed by the fact we never met the earlier girls who were taken to the tower and then went "away to the city" were never run into when our main character ended up in the city a long time, too.

I am still interested in reading more of Novik's fairytale stories. ( )

I’m vacillating between a 3 and 3.5. Maybe I’ll decide by the time I’m done writing this review.

This book was my first ever book purchase based on a booktuber’s recommendation very early on in my blogging days. I even started reading it then but found myself not interested after a couple of chapters, so it’s been languishing on my bookshelf for more than two years now. When one of my book clubs chose it as our February BOTM, I decided it was finally time for me to take it out and push myself to finish it this time. And finish I did, but I’m feeling so unsure right now.

This is a book that won both the Hugo and Nebula awards, so one would assume that it’s brilliant, but I’ve not had many good experiences with award winning titles, so I definitely went into it with lowered expectations. The writing can surely be called beautiful, poetic even in places, and it’s very successful in creating a certain atmosphere that permeates throughout the book. But it also lends itself to being overly descriptive (which I tend to hate) and there were many instances where I was confused and had to go back to understand what the author meant. The pacing of the story is quite slow and it doesn’t really pick up even during the major action sequences, so I was bored many a times. I don’t know if I would have been able to finish the book if I wasn’t so determined to. And if we come to the plot, there’s not a lot that actually happens and even cutting it by a 100 or so pages wouldn’t have made much of a difference.

The world here is both fascinating and vague - giving us just enough information so that we can follow the story but not enough detail that we can feel immersed in it. The magic system also felt so all over the place - there were hardly any rules or limits and the characters could pretty much do anything, but the way it was described was very captivating and I was impressed, though a tad confused as well. The author takes a lot of inspiration from Polish folklore and that shines through, which made for a very unique fantasy world and I really loved that part.


Agnieszka is a naive sheltered girl who enjoys the outdoors a lot and her life completely changes when she is chosen by the dragon. She is a kind, compassionate and very loyal person and can be fiercely protective of anyone she loves which I really admired about her. On the other hand, once she discovers her magical abilities, it’s like she can do so much of it which no one else has ever been able to do, and some of it even very old and seasoned sorcerers can’t understand - I’m pretty much tired of this trope where the heroine suddenly becomes all powerful. The Dragon (or Sarkun) is a very disgruntled, douchey, almost immortal sorcerer who is mean (bordering on abusive) towards her and I’m really over such characters too. I could understand that he was the way he was because he was too scared to put down roots and let others into his life knowing he will outlive them, but that still doesn’t excuse most of his behavior towards her at the beginning.

I was glad when they achieved a sort of truce and started practicing together. It was obvious from the beginning that it would turn into a romance and while I liked the way it eventually ended up being, I didn’t really like the path it took to get there. There just wasn’t enough believability in their love story and I think it needed more fleshing out. I also think I didn’t feel invested in them as individuals, so I wasn’t emotionally attached to their relationship either.

Kasia, who is Agnieszka’s best friend was probably my favorite of the lot. Her life takes paths she never expected to but she overcomes all the obstacles she is thrown and emerges stronger, always standing up for herself and those in need. The Wood itself is an all encompassing villainous presence throughout the story and while I could totally feel it’s menacing effects, I can’t say I completely understood what happened towards the end. There were a couple more interesting characters like Marek, Solya and Alosha but I wish they had gotten a bit more development.

To conclude, I think this book had a lot of potential but it faltered in its execution. If you enjoy beautiful writing and atmospheric, whimsical fairytale like settings, then this book might be a good choice for you. If you like more character development as well as a well realized world and magic system, I feel this might leave you disappointed. I still am glad that I finally got to read such an acclaimed book and see what the hype was all about. ( )

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.
