If a classic fairytale with a twist is what you love, then Uprooted may be the book to pick up! Naomi Novik creates a carefully crafted world with a hint of Beauty and the Beast for its two main characters, Agnieszka and the Dragon.

Agnieszka is a young village girl handpicked by the Dragon to live with him in his tower, from which no girl has ever retuned.  She has trouble avoiding mistakes or dirtying her new clothes or completing the Dragon’s tasks correctly.  As she grows under the dragon’s hand the antagonist of the story, the Wood comes into focus.  It’s a seemingly sentient forest with a penchant for making the sane lose their minds, a unique and terrifying evil.  The story is filled with magic, adventure, friendship and a pinch of romance.
