Publisher Comments:

Darkness Threatens to overtake Earthsea. As the world and its wizards are losing their magic, Ged — powerful Archmage, wizard, and dragonlord — embarks on a sailing journey with highborn young prince, Arren. They travel far beyond the realm of death to discover the cause of these evil disturbances and to restore magic to a land desperately thirsty for it.

With millions of copies sold, Ursula K. Le Guin's Earthsea Cycle 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 has won countless awards for her work, including the Nebula, Hugo, National Book, and Newberry Honor awards, and lives in Portland, Oregon.

If you are a fan of L.O.R. or H.P. you will enjoy the adventures of young Jed as he becomes a legendary wizard. Ursla has a unique take on how to become a wizard and how a wizard's power is derived. Middle school readers and upwards will enjoy this series.
