Earthsea Cycle #06: The Other Wind Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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

--Neil Gaiman, author of The Sandman

 
The sorcerer Alder fears sleep. The dead are pulling him to them at night. Through him they may free themselves and invade Earthsea. Alder seeks advice from Ged, once Archmage. Ged tells him to go to Tenar, Tehanu, and the young king at Havnor. They are joined by amber-eyed Irian, a fierce 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.
     In this final book of the Earthsea Cycle, Le Guin combines her magical fantasy with a profoundly human, earthly, humble touch.

Synopsis:

An exciting re-launch of the classic Earthsea Cycle, by fantasy literature legend Ursula K. Le Guin, winner of a Newbery Honor, the National Book Award, Pushcart Prize, and six Nebula Awards.

Synopsis:

“[Le Guin] reconsiders the relationship between magic and something more basic: life and death itself.”—Publishers Weekly The archipelago of Earthsea is in turmoil. The dragons are breaking old truces, and even the dead threaten to return from the afterlife, using the sorcerer Alder's dreams as a conduit. Alder seeks advice from Ged, once Archmage. It's decided that the threat can only be confronted on the holy isle of Roke. In this magnificent grand finale to the Earthsea Cycle, Le Guin ties up many loose ends from her previous novels and brings back favorite characters to the delight of her fans.

Synopsis:

"Le Guin understands magic and dragons better than anyone, and her writing only gets better with each new book. THE OTHER WIND is a triumph."

--Michael Swanwick, author of Stations of the Tide

"I adored THE OTHER WIND. Real mythmaking, done by a master of the craft. . . . The magic of Earthsea is primal; the lessons of Earthsea remain as potent, as wise, and as necessary as anyone could dream."

--Neil Gaiman, author of The Sandman
