WHEN YOUNG TENAR is chosen as high priestess to the ancient and nameless Powers of the Earth, everything is taken away -- home, family, possessions, even her name. For she is now Arha, the Eaten One, guardian of the ominous Tombs of Atuan. While she is learning her way through the dark labyrinth, a young wizard, Ged, comes to steal the Tombs' greatest hidden treasure, the Ring of Erreth-Akbe. But Ged also brings with him the light of magic, and together, he and Tenar escape from the darkness that has become her domain. With millions of copies sold, Ursula K. Le Guin's Earthsea Cycle has earned a treasured place on the shelves of fantasy lovers everywhere. Complex, innovative, and deeply moral, this quintessential fantasy sequence has been compared with the work of J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, and has helped make Le Guin one of the most distinguished fantasy and science fiction writers of all time. She lives in Portland, Oregon.

Wondeful! My favourite Le Guin book. She gets the story right! Their is something intangible about the second book in this series. The first in the series often seemed incomplete, with holes in it like Swiss cheese. This one picks up steam. It’s like a orange that is surprisingly sweet, and better than any of the others in a bunch. Good enough that you might keep peeling Le Guin books to see if you can find another just as sweet.

For a long while I was wondering how this book fit. Then, wham, gotcha! Like a mystery and sci fi all in one! Nice!
