Christina, 19 november 2018
En fantastisk saga i en helt egen stil. Förtrollande, spännande med många dolda sanningar och med ett kraftfullt moraliskt budskap.
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."

Uprooted has everything I love: a great heroine, new takes on old myths and legends, and surprising twists and turns. A delight. * CASSANDRA CLARE * Uprooted by Naomi Novik is enchanting, in every sense of that fine old word. A charming and inviting story that looks unflinchingly at the strangling roots of hurt and revenge. -- ROBIN HOBB The magic in Uprooted, with its realistic moral dimension, is so vividly believable that it almost seems you could work the spells. But the book will do that for you. -- URSULA K. LE GUIN Wild, thrilling, and deeply, darkly magical. An instant classic. -- LEV GROSSMAN Magical and practical, otherworldly and planted in the real, I could NOT stop reading this book and neither will you! -- TAMORA PIERCE Uprooted is one of those tales you come back to over and over again because it's just that enchanting. The adventure builds with such tension that you are peeking through your hands at the end, hoping it will all be okay, and Novik delivers a conclusion that's deeply satisfying, earning a permanent space on my bookshelf that I'll revisit often. -- KEVIN HEARN Naomi Novik's Uprooted is a marvelous fantasy reminiscent of Howl's Moving Castle and vastly superior to The Hobbit. Her characters, setting, and the magic they use are all brilliant. I devoured the book in one reading. Well done! I want more! -- TODD MCCAFFREY The roots of Uprooted are planted deep in fairy tale lore, but the story that Naomi Novik has coaxed forth is fresh and compelling. It reads like a previously undiscovered origin myth in the best possible way! -- JACQUELINE CAREY Every so often you come upon a story that seems like a lost tale of Grimm newly come to light. Uprooted is such a novel. Its narrative spell is confidently wrought and sympathetically cast. I might even call it bewitching. -- GREGORY MAGUIRE
