DARKNESS THREATENS to overtake Earthsea. As the world and its wizards are losing their magic, Ged -- powerful Archmage, wizard, and dragonlord -- embarks on a sailing journey with highborn young prince, Arren. They travel far beyond the realm of death to discover the cause of these evil disturbances and to restore magic to a land desperately thirsty for it.

3rd in a series of 4 fantasy books, if you like the worlds created by Tolkien and Lewis' Narnia, you will like the Earthsea books

This is a very good book in an excellent series. It's entertaining with a depth that I've come to expect from Ursula Le Guin. This book makes you think, really think, about the concept of living forever. Would life still be as sweet, as enjoyable, if you could never die? Read it. It's worth it.

The last Earthsea novel worth reading, IMO. Classic epic fantasy.

A wonderful end to the EarthSea trilogy.

Third in the Earthsea Cycle - which used to be the Earthsea trilogy, so this book is pretty much an end point on its own - it follows "A Wizard of Earthsea" and "The Tombs of Atuan." All three books are wonderful. They are a great introduction to fantasy while still moving and fascinating for the fantasy "expert."

The magic had gone out of the world. All over Earthsea the mages had forgotten their spells, the springs of wizardry were running dry. Ged, Dragonlord and Archmage, set out with Arren, a highborn young prince, to seek the source of darkness. This is the tale of their harrowing journey beyond the shores of death ot heal a wounded land.
