Originally published in 1968, Ursula K. Le Guin's "A Wizard of Earthsea" marks the first of the six now beloved Earthsea titles. Ged was the greatest sorcerer in Earthsea, but in his youth he was the reckless Sparrowhawk. In his hunger for power and knowledge, he tampered with long-held secrets and loosed a terrible shadow upon the world. This is the tumultuous tale of his testing, how he mastered the mighty words of power, tamed an ancient dragon, and crossed death's threshold to restore the balance.

An absolutely fantastic story. Right up there with All the Light We Cannot See and A Gentleman in Moscow. Powerfully and beautifully written... characters you come to really care about. Highly recommend... would be a great book club read, too. - Review by Jo, customer
