Description

WHEN YOUNG TENAR is chosen as high priestess to the ancient and nameless Powers of the Earth, everything is taken away -- home, family, possessions, even her name. For she is now Arha, the Eaten One, guardian of the ominous Tombs of Atuan. While she is learning her way through the dark labyrinth, a young wizard, Ged, comes to steal the Tombs' greatest hidden treasure, the Ring of Erreth-Akbe. But Ged also brings with him the light of magic, and together, he and Tenar escape from the darkness that has become her domain. 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 lives in Portland, Oregon.

Professional reviews

"In this the second in the popular Earthsea series the young priestess of a dying cult discovers a wider destiny when a wizard invades her domain. Rob Inglis will be familiar to many listeners through his masterful reading of The Lord of the Rings for Recorded Books. His rich sound and grave manner would make a grocery list sound like a collection of rare treasures. When he reads of things magical and heroic, it's like hearing an illuminated manuscript. The compactness of the novel and the age of its protagonist recommend it for YA listening, but its appeal is by no means limited to the young. J.N. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
