Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Exceptional epic fantasy"

    Despite listening to over 300 books a year, I've only found two new fantasy authors I'd really recommend in 2016. This is a beautifully narrated story with hints of probably Russian folk tales, though I don't know where or how varied the author's influences. It feels like the literary equivalent or a monsoon in the desert.

    "Awful"

    I'd recommend this book to anyone who for reasons beyond my comprehension likes Twilight saga. Same story of hardly of age girl suddenly finding herself very special and in love with some mysterious hundred year old man. Which I personally find far from fascinating, but dull and degrading. I've also discovered what seems the only disadvantage of an audio book - you can suddenly find yourself listening to a "his firm thigh between my legs" passage without being able to flick through the pages to escape it.
    I deeply regret buying this book and my own habit of not being able to put down a story I've started to read or listen.

    "Wonderful"

    Wonderfully written and read. Probably one of the best narrations I've heard. Will be looking out for more by this author and narrator.

    "Magical"

    Loved this story, reminds me of the old, traditional fairytales I loved as a child except a more 'grown up' version.

    "Amazing story."

    Uprooted was...unexpected. I love fantasy and its usually what I spend my time reading. It can get repetitive but uprooted seemed like something completely different and new.

    Story
    "Generally a good journey"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Uprooted to be better than the print version?

    Can't actually comment on this


    What about Katy Sobey’s performance did you like?

    It was well read, her pace and voice matching characters well.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was a fun book to listen to, I can't say it was the deepest book I have ever been drawn nto but I did have enough investment in it to 'feel' the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Generally a good little adventure, transporting you to an interesting mythology and leave you rooting for the main character.

    Story
    "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.
