Waterstones Says

An exquisitely written fantasy from one of the finest proponents of the form, A Wizard of Earthsea tells the tale of Sparrowhawk and the evil shadow-beast he summoned up on the Island of Gont.

The first book of Earthsea by Ursula Le Guin is a tale of wizards, dragons and terrifying shadows.

The island of Gont is a land famous for wizards. Of these, some say the greatest - and surely the greatest voyager - is the man called Sparrowhawk. As a reckless, awkward boy, he discovered the great power that was in him - with terrifying consequences. Tempted by pride to try spells beyond his means, Sparrowhawk lets loose an evil shadow-beast in his land. Only he can destroy it, and the quest leads him to the farthest corner of Earthsea.

“Before Hogwarts”

Before Hogwarts, there was the Wizard's College of Roke. Before Rowling, there was Ursula K LeGuin. There's so much essential grounding in fantasy that comes from this book. I first read it in the 1980s... More

“A lovely edition of a delightful classic”

If Tolkien is the grandfather of fantasy, Le Guin is the grandmother of science-fiction and fantasy both.

The Wizard of Earthsea has so clearly inspired many, many other fantasy writers in their own works, and... More
