Return to the windswept world of Earthsea in the third book of this magnificent fantasy saga. As a young wizard, Ged boldly entered the sacred labyrinth of Atuan to steal the magical ring of Erreth-Akbe from the dark forces of the world. Now, as Archmage and Dragonlord, an older Ged faces an even greater challenge. Prince Arren has come to tell him that the magic has gone out of Earthsea. All over the world, mages and wizards are forgetting their spells, and the springs of magic are running dry. With Arren by his side, Ged sets off on a harrowing quest for the source of darkness slowly creeping over the world. The journey leads the pair past enchanted islands, fire-breathing dragons, and cunning villains—and straight to the shores of death. Only there can hope be found for the wounded land. Lauded as one of the best-loved fantasy classics of this century, Ursula K. Le Guin’s Earthsea saga will sweep you into a fantastic land of wizardry and high adventure.
