Description
(Winner of a Boston Globe–Horn Book Award for Fiction and a Lewis Carroll Shelf Award) In this first novel of Earthsea, a young wizard called Sparrowhawk grows to manhood while attempting to subdue the evil he accidentally unleashed on the world as an apprentice to the Master Wizard. Ged—the boy's true name—was to become the greatest sorcerer in Earthsea, but he was a reckless youth, hungry for power and knowledge, who tampered with long-held secrets and loosed a terrible shadow upon the world. This is the tale of his testing, how he mastered the words of power in the Old Speech, tamed an ancient dragon, and crossed death's threshold to restore the balance. 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
