(Winner of the 2002 World Fantasy Award for Best Novel) The sorcerer Alder fears sleep—the dead are pulling him to them at night—in this final book of the Earthsea cycle. Through Alder, the dead may free themselves from their underworld and invade Earthsea. Alder seeks advice from the former wizard Ged, who tells him to go to Tenar, Tehanu, and the young king at Havnor, where they are joined by amber-eyed Irian, a dragon able to assume the shape of a woman. The threat can be confronted only in the Immanent Grove on Roke, the holiest place in the world, and there the king, hero, sage, wizard, and dragon make a last stand. One of the most distinguished fantasy and science fiction writers of all time, Ursula K. Le Guin has won the Nebula Award, the Hugo Award, and the National Book Award. She is best known for her singular Earthsea fantasy series for readers 12 to adult, set on a world of many islands, where dragons and humans share a distant past, where magic keeps the world in balance and wizards can change their shape, and where one's true name is a secret that holds power. Originally a trilogy, begun in 1968 with A Wizard of Earthsea, the Earthsea cycle is a series of five novels—all of which have won literary honors—and a collection of tales.

"The magic of Earthsea is primal; the lessons of Earthsea remain as potent, as wise, and as necessary as anyone could dream."—Neil Gaiman
