Uprooted

ebook
NEBULA AWARD WINNER
  • HUGO AWARD FINALIST • "If you want a fantasy with strong characters and brilliantly original variations on ancient stories, try Uprooted!"—Rick Riordan

    "Breathtaking . . . a tale that is both elegantly grand and earthily humble, familiar as a Grimm fairy tale yet fresh, original, and totally irresistible."—Publishers Weekly(starred review)
    NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR • BuzzFeed Tordotcom
  • BookPage Library Journal Publishers Weekly

    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.
    Praise for Uprooted
    "Uprooted has leapt forward to claim the title of Best Book I've Read Yet This Year. . . . Moving, heartbreaking, and thoroughly satisfying, Uprooted is the fantasy novel I feel I've been waiting a lifetime for. Clear your schedule before picking it up, because you won't want to put it down."—NPR
