Complete the collection with A Wizard of Earthsea, The Furthest Shore and TehanuWith illustrations from Charles Vess'[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 MitchellIn this second novel in the Earthsea series, Tenar is chosen as high priestess to the ancient and nameless Powers of the Earth, and everything is taken from her - home, family, possessions, even her name.

She is now known only as Arha, the Eaten One, and guards the shadowy, labyrinthine Tombs of Atuan. Then a wizard, Ged Sparrowhawk, comes to steal the Tombs' greatest hidden treasure, the Ring of Erreth-Akbe.

Tenar's duty is to protect the Ring, but Ged possesses the light of magic and tales of a world that Tenar has never known.

Will Tenar risk everything to escape from the darkness that has become her domain?
