Summary
In order to keep the malevolent Wood away, Agnieszka's village gives one of its young women to a wizard known as the Dragon every 10 years so that he will protect them from the death and destruction it brings. Agnieszka is a clumsy, kind, girl who never expects to leave her village, yet is chosen because she has strong magic within her and must develop her skills. These become extremely useful when the Wood begins to extend its power and the Dragon and Agnieszka are called upon to help.
Critique
Novik creates a truly unique adult fairy tale world with royalty, magic, mystery and a quest, featuring a strong heroine and a fabulous friendship. There's even some romance in this page-turning adventure!
