  • Really good fantasy novel

    The fourth book of Ursula le Guin's Earthsea series, brings together Tenar, the priestess in the Tombs of Atuan, living under another name, and Ged, the Archmage who has now lost his power. Tenar rescues a young girl who has been abused and is still in danger. The story is told from Tenar's perspective and portrays a world in which magic is turned to evil, and women and children made to suffer. It is a dark take on the Earthsea world, and frequently uncomfortable background. It treats themes of power and gender and raises questions about the ethics of the male-dominated mage culture of the previous books. The prose lacks the poetic quality of parts of the original Earthsea trilogy - there is none of the close attention to rhythm and sound that the earlier books have - but the starker style suits the darker theme.

    Thanks for your feedback!
