‘[This] trilogy made me look at the world in a new way imbued everything with a magic that was so much deeper than the magic I’d encountered before then. This was a magic of words a magic of true speaking’ Neil Gaiman

‘Drink this magic up. Drown in it. Dream it’ David Mitchell

Ged the greatest sorcerer in all Earthsea was called Sparrowhawk in his reckless youth.

Hungry for power and knowledge Sparrowhawk tampered with long-held secrets and loosed a terrible shadow upon the world. This is the 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.

‘The Earthsea trilogy . . . is a memorable exploration of the relationship between life and death. . . Ged its hero must face his shadow self before it devours him. Only then will he become whole. In the process he must contend with the wisdom of dragons: ambiguous and not our wisdom but wisdom nonetheless’ Magaret Atwood
