Publisher Comments:

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. andlt;BRandgt; With millions of copies sold, andlt;bandgt;Ursula K. Le Guin's Earthsea Cycleandlt;/bandgt; 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.

Synopsis:

The first book in LeGuin's bestselling fantasy series introduces Tenar, a priestess who oversees the dark tombs. The young wizard Sparrowhawk comes to the tombs to steal back the valuable ring of Erreth-Akbe and rescue Tenar from danger. A Newbery Honor Book and an ALA Notable Book.
