3 books in 1. The first was A Wizard of Earthsea and was an okay story. The beginning was great, the end was lacking. The second story The Tombs of Atuan was pretty sweet. It made you forgive the first story. The third one was The Farthest Shore. I really liked this story as well. I am glad all 3 stories were in 1 book, if I had gotten the first story by it self I would of not gone on to the rest.
