    Description

    A dark enchantment blights the land.

    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 returns 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 10 years, leaving all she values 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.

    incredible storytelling and deep world

    While I do not recommend this book for the younger crowd --it depicting graphic sex scenes and a surprising amount of violence-- the book is very good.

    The world is deep, and lived-in. From political intrigues to the life of farmers and villagers, everything appears in sharp details and is shown with incredible emotional intelligence.

    The characters are likeable, and their struggle personal, and I had not rooted more for a protagonist in a long while. The magic isn't all-powerful, and you rarely ago yourself "why don't they just do that?" as is so often the case in fantasy.

    The narration is incredible. The soft accent, the emotion and the passion in it are incredibly contagious.

    My only problem with it would be towards the end, and how a certain battle was handled, but I can't go into more details without falling in spoiler territory.

    All-in-all, I will keep Agnieszka, Kasia and the Dragon close to my heart for years to come.

    sometimes predictable but beautifully written

    nice performance, beautifully written. sometimes I could guess where the plot was going. The main character grew a lot in this story and sometimes her maturity seemed out of place for her age and life experience...but overall I really liked her.

    confused about the hugely varied reviews? read thi

    Ok so the first 5 chapters she is a bit whiney and whinge repetitively about her predicament. he's a miserable negative pratt but do stick with it. the book totally redeems itself soon after and it's a great book. The narrator is perfect for the character, at once whimsical and aloof and real too so you feel you know agnieshka. I'm sure I spelt that wrong, ah well. The wood is fascinating and the magic gets better and better. a highly engaging book.

    So Addictive!

    This story had me so addicted i feel like i'm in withdrawal now, finished it some hours ago and i cant's stop crying over the fact that it's over. Don't let the first few chapters fool you, it quickly becomes an amazing fairytail full of empowerment and wonder <3
    I've never ever felt like this after finishing a book

    Wonderful

    As I get older I get more jaded, and lose some of the sense of wonderment that was so essential a part of reading tales and fantasy when I was younger. This book managed to transport me back decades! It is wonderfully narrated, and beautifully crafted. I loved the main character, and the lesser-known setting of Poland and Russia for this powerful fantasy. It kept me interested and invested, and I was so sorry when it was over, though I found the ending satisfying.

    Ok

    I generally liked the book and story, and the performance was good, but the awkward sex portions was extremely annoying.

    Thanks for the narrator!

    I’m very grateful to those who decided to find a new narrator for this book. In my opinion it’s the key to everything when it comes to listening a book. So it was my first reason to buy an audio instead of a printed book. I was very unhappy when I could not listen to the previous narrator because of the accent. Katy Sobey did a great job and it really feels like magic especially when you can let yourself to close your eyes and just go with the flow.
    The book itself is a little bit slow paced and even if something happens it feels like we are still stuck in one place and no one is going anywhere. However it is a beautiful story and I have no complaints.

    A beautiful telling

    This is a gem of a story, gracefully presented and told with the language to match. Some stories are a pleasure to listen to purely because they are beautifully written, but this has all three; Great story, well written, and perfectly narrated.
    Highly recommend!

    Haunting and poetic

    I truly loved this audio book. The narration was perfect in pitch, pace and emotional interpretation. The tale engrossing. I was riveted to my iPod until the end. A perfect fantasy for mature young adults and older.
    The blurb is a little misleading, but it drew me in as I love dragons. I forgave the absence of a fire breathing dragon as the story unfolds steadily and inexorably in the fight of good against evil. The world building is detailed and the magic so believable.
    This is an amazing stand alone adult fantasy with genuine characters. It is a testament to love, friendship, loyalty, sacrifice and redemption. Such a complex plot. No spoilers. Just be assured that if you enjoy fantasy, this is a must listen.

    great voice actor, and a lovely fantasy story, with a captivating world.
    interesting Villan👍

    for teenagers, LARPers ... at heart

    This is basically the coming-of-age-story of a teenage girl. She has to leave her family and friends. She gets trained in an art completely new to her. Initally overwhelmed, she discovers she is actually very talented at it. She falls in love with her teacher, attracted to a man who mainly comes across as distant and arrogant, but extremely good at his job and quite attractive. She learns about sexual attraction and has pleasant and unpleasant encounters. She learns that the dangers of her world are actually very serious and out to get her, not just the fairytales she believed as a kid; and how she can put her talents towards making the world a better place. She has to face up to the conflicts of her childhood days and resolve them. Her horizon broadens as she moves to the big city and has to find her way in social circles that were alien to her before. She gains knowledge and courage and self-respect. And then all of this is put to the test in a big showdown to save her world.
    It's just disguised as a fairy tale complete with magicians, enchanted woods, witches, beautiful princes and evil queens which is disguised as a fantasy novel.
    It's a bit like the Outlander series really, but with more magic and a bit less sex.
    If you enjoy escaping into such a fairy tale world, if you occasionally enjoy such teenage erotic fantasies, or if you are a LARPer who enjoys detailed and intricate descriptions of magical spells and healing rituals - or if you are all of this at once deep down in your heart, you'll like this book. If not, read something else.

    Comfortable Fantasy Fairy-Tale

    First up I think it's important to note, that I wasn't bored or struggled to continue throughout this 19h audiobook - that is an achievement in and of itself.
    However, I do have some criticism. First is the awkward tonal shift near the beginning of the third act. In the first half of the book, the story has this wonderful Fairy-Tale feel to it, with a small cast of characters and stakes that are never raised beyond the survival or happiness of these characters. Unfortunately, the book then seems to change its mind and drifts more into a tolkienesque high fantasy affair. Which still works, but wasn't what originally drew me to the book. I'm also not a huge fan of the reveal of what the antagonist actually is.
    All in all it is still a pleasurable experience read by an extremely pleasant actress.

    Humans, nature and magic blended into a Fairytale

    Naomi Novik is an acclaimed author and her fantasy novel „Uprooted“ received amongst others the highly prestigious “Nebula Award”. Most of the reviews of “Uprooted” are extremely positive or even exuberant and I can see why, a young and naïve heroine, unaware of her gift in witchcraft, the eternal battle between the forces of good and evil and a story with the touch and feel of a Grimm’s fairy tale. Naomi Novik skillfully blends old myths and legends with conflicts and concerns of our time, the struggle to reconcile human interests with the preservation of nature.

    Naomi Novik’s prose is enchanting and pleasant to listen to. It reminded me of the bedtime hours of my childhood, when mother was reading stories to us children. I especially liked the reference to old Polish myths, which give the narrative a very unique and special touch.The way magic is described here, is also quite appealing. It is not just spells and waving of wands, but rather finding the essence of things and magnifying its properties.

    The storyline is not overly complex. Agneieszka, a young village girl, is sent to the tower of the dragon, a sinister sorcerer, to serve him for a decade. To her surprise she finds out that she has a gift for magic and together with the dragon she tries to protect the valley from the dark forces hidden in the surrounding woods. It does not really surprise that there is a strong bond growing between both of them, a nice romantic touch.

    Unfortunately there are also some parts of the tale, which spoiled some of the fun for me:
    1.) The story is unnecessarily violent and cruel. Thousands of soldiers are killed in battle and mostly by dark magic and bloodthirsty monsters. The author lingers too long on these battle scenes and does not move on until the last man died.
    2.) Nature, especially the woods, are described as a source of evil and mankind has to fight nature rather than live in harmony with it.
    3.) The story is a little bit lengthy at times and the reader gets the impression that it does not go anywhere.
    4.) It probably is true for most fairytales, but Naomi Novik’s characters are black or white, villains or saints. This reduces the quality of the otherwise nicely structured characters.

    Regardless of all that, it is an unusual and decent fantasy novel.

    Awesome story and awesome voice actor!

    I really loved the story buildup and the character development in the main character. Starting as a timid girl with mostly fear slowly turning into a woman that expresses her wishes and stand up up for herself. Proving that she is not to be underestimated.

    Katy I loved your voice it was easy to get into the story as I mostly listen to audio books when I've to drive for several hours is nice to have a voice that can bring the story to live so well.

    Beautiful language, lengthy plot

    I liked the fairy tale atmosphere of the whole book and it was a joy to listen to. Unfortunately, the plot and the characters didn't grip me. The established relationship did not make me feel much and I didn't care about it. The story is creative but somehow the main character lacks a proper goal beyond the one she is forced to adapt.

    Nice book, incompetent reading

    I really like this book but struggled to bear the narrator who was reading as if she was reading heptameter. Not sure why she chooses this sing-song voice but it takes all the nuances out of the book. Whilst she has a very sweet voice overall, she is incapable of giving credible voices to the characters - her voicing of men (dumpf and dull), children (squeaky) and older women (crackly) is painful at most times and the one somewhat erotic passage in the book just made me cringe. I hate it when male narrators speak women by making their pitch higher and women likewise making theirs lower is equally incompetent and rids the characters off depth and complexity. There are two inflections the narrator has mastered - one is the dominating narration style which sounds as if she recites poetry and the other is Surprise!. I was looking forward to the next book but seeing that it has the same narrator will rather re-read it myself than listen to something like this again.
