Description

‘One of the literary greats of the 20th century’ Margaret Atwood

The first book of Earthsea by Ursula Le Guin is a tale of wizards, dragons and terrifying shadows.

The island of Gont is a land famous for wizards. Of these, some say the greatest – and surely the greatest voyager – is the man called Sparrowhawk. As a reckless, awkward boy, he discovered the great power that was in him – with terrifying consequences. Tempted by pride to try spells beyond his means, Sparrowhawk lets loose an evil shadow-beast in his land. Only he can destroy it, and the quest leads him to the farthest corner of Earthsea.

Publisher Review

Earthsea is a towering pinnacle of fantasy, its stories beautiful, epic, intimate, unique. Nowhere else is magic made more thrillingly real
