Here is the UK cover for Uprooted, Naomi’s next book!
I had lunch with Brandon Sanderson a few days ago and he raved about Uprooted. I agreed. I think this is a story that has been growing inside of Naomi for some time, one that is really going to catch the genre and its reader’s off guard!
Here is more about the book:
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.
The next choosing is fast approaching, and Agnieszka is afraid. She knows – everyone knows – that the Dragon will take Kasia: beautiful, graceful, brave Kasia, all the things Agnieszka isn’t, and her dearest friend in the world. And there is no way to save her.
But Agnieszka fears the wrong things. For when the Dragon comes, it is not Kasia he will choose.
For such a stunning, magical book – Tor UK wanted a cover that was beautiful. Enchanting. I think that’s what they’ve achieved! The book will publish May 21, 2015 and you can read the first chapter here!
Uprooted is coming May 21st!
