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.
This fantastical Beauty and the Beast-type tale will appeal to fans of Once Upon a Time, Maleficent, The Night Circus, and A Discovery of Witches, readers of Gregory Maguire, and is a perfect Young Adult Crossover Title!
“Every so often you come upon a story that seems like a lost tale of Grimm newly come to light. UPROOTED is such a novel. Its narrative spell is confidently wrought and sympathetically cast. I might even call it bewitching.” —Gregory Maguire, bestselling author of Wicked
