Welcome to a fairytale for the twenty-first century. Uprooted is Brothers Grimm meets Wizard of Earthsea.

Every ten years, the Dragon, an old wizard, chooses a girl from the valley and takes her to his tower, and she is not seen for a decade, and then when she returns she is different somehow. Agnieszka is a plain ordinary girl, who is surprisingly chosen by the Dragon, and so begins her journey to the tower and learning about why the Dragon does what he does. In time, she will become a powerful witch under the tutelage of the Dragon, and then play her part in protecting the valley and fighting against the Wood.

Uprooted sweeps you up from the first page and takes you away to magical land where you won’t want to leave. The characters are complex and fascinating, the world entrancing and inviting, the Wood dark and scary, and the magic simplistic yet impressive. Like all good tales that last for eons, Uprooted is a seemingly simple story that, when finished, keeps unraveling its secrets within your mind.
