5 books this month, 3 lumped into one review because they’re all part of one series. I audiobooked all three ofthem, and about half of Uprooted. I kept switching between the audiobook and the paper book of that one because it was just so damn interesting.
Since you’ve read this, I’ll skip the “About” and go straight to thoughts.
Agnieszka lives in a village in a valley with an overlord they call the Dragon. He’s a wizard, and he asks very little of the people of the valley, except one thing: every 10 years, he chooses one teenage girl. She goes to his tower, serves him for 10 years, and then is released.
