Summary

The sorcerer Alder fears sleep. The dead are pulling him to them at night. Through him they may free themselves and invade Earthsea.
Alder seeks advice from Ged, once Archmage. Ged tells him to go to Tenar, Tehanu, and the young king at Havnor. They are joined by amber-eyed Irian, a fierce dragon able to assume the shape of a woman.
The threat can be confronted only in the Immanent Grove on Roke, the holiest place in the world, and there the king, hero, sage, wizard, and dragon make a last stand.
In this final book of the Earthsea Cycle, Le Guin combines her magical fantasy with a profoundly human, earthly, humble touch.

love earthsea! sorry to see the series end.

I love this book. A happy and bittersweet ending to a wonderful series. My one complaint was the narrator's inability to decide how he wanted to pronounce the name"Irian". Eye-RYE'n? EAR-ee-on?? Either is fine with me, though most performances seem to go with the latter. But switching back and forth, even within the same short passage, was an oddity and a bit of a distraction from a job otherwise well done

Small things cast a big shadow

This was amazing. This brought a return to the magnitude of the original Earthsea trilogy while combining it with the simplicity of the human experience that we found in Tehanu. Like small things that cast a big shadow, so does this book.

Roukin’s narrative performance was also very much of quality. All in all this book has become a favorite. I never felt I would say this, but Ged’s tale feels complete.
