Book Four of Ursula K. Le Guin's Earthsea Cycle Years ago, they had escaped together from the sinister Tombs of Atuan -- she, an isolated young priestess; he, a powerful wizard. Now she is a farmer's widow, having chosen for herself the simple pleasures of an ordinary life. And he is a broken old man, mourning the powers lost to him through no choice of his own. Once, when they were young, they helped each other at a time of darkness and danger and shared an adventure like no other. Now they must join forces again, to help another in need -- the physically and emotionally scarred child whose own destiny has yet to be revealed. With millions of copies sold worldwide, Ursula K. Le Guin's Earthsea Cycle has earned a treasured place on the shelves of fantasy lovers everywhere, alongside the works of such beloved authors as J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis.

5.0 Tehanu by K. Ursula Le Guin
In Tehanu, Le Guin finds adventure in the lives of mundaneness, she brings exquisite depth to her characters, and in the process she breaks new ground for the fantasy genre.

4.5 Review: Tehanu (Earthsea Cycle Book 4 of 6ish)
Tehanu is the fourth book of the Earthsea Cycle, written 18 years after the third book. It tells a different type of story and has a different tone from the earlier books. It’s a direct sequel in that it continues where the third book left off. It actually starts slightly before the ending of the...

4.0
A very good book, although different from the previous Earthsea books (which is understandable given that it was written nearly twenty years after the The Farthest Shore).

5.0 Tehanu (The Earthsea Cycle, Book 4)
4th book in the Earthsea trilogy. A masterpiece, of course. What Le Guin isn't? This one gives us a clearer picture of Ged as an old man, and so much more besides.
