Kacey, February 15, 2014 (view all comments by Kacey)
I thought this book was much better than the first, but not as good as the second. The ending was very anti-climactic, especially for the resolution of a trilogy. I finished it being quite disappointed. The Earthsea trilogy is supposedly up there with The Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia but I don't think it's of the same caliber. Some parts of the story were imaginative and interesting, but overall I felt the series to be just ok.

Katherine Stuart, April 19, 2009 (view all comments by Katherine Stuart)
I know Le Guin's written more Earthsea books, but I really enjoy the trilogy -- the way it's constructed. This last book is a beautiful closing. The last great act of a great man. His life nicely progressed with the first book being about his coming into his power and his realization of the responsibility such power brings, the price such power costs. The second book an interlude where he goes on a foolish quest that nearly kills him. Then there's this last quest because bringing peace to his world isn't enough.

This quest forges the next leader -- a teenage boy -- into the leader he has to be.

Our hero uses himself up in this last great act. He has no power left. He returns home finishing his life with the same simplicity with which it began. It's sad, but in its own way it's also comforting and sweet.
