Our Dragon doesn t eat the girls he takes, no matter what stories they tell outside our valley. We hear them sometimes, from travelers passing through. They talk as though we were doing human sacrifice, and he were a real dragon. Of course that s not true: he may be a wizard and immortal, but he s still a man, and our fathers would band together and kill him if he wanted to eat one of us every ten years. He protects us against the Wood, and we re grateful, but not that grateful. " 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.

  1. Uprooted sprudlar av berättarglädje och värme
    Sandra Jönsson, 12 juli 2016

    "Inget ställe i boken är för hemskt och mörkt för att inte kunna lättas upp med Noviks vältajmade skämt, varför jag med saknad, liksom rädd för att gå miste om den sprudlande värmen, kände ett visst vemod inför att läsa den sista sidan i boken."
