Publisher's Summary

Years before, they had escaped together from the sinister Tombs of Atuan - she an isolated young priestess, he a powerful wizard. Now she is a farmer's widow, having chosen for herself the simple pleasures of an ordinary life. And he is a broken old man, mourning the powers lost to him not by choice.

A lifetime ago they helped each other at a time of darkness and danger. Now they must join forces again to help another - the physically and emotionally scarred child whose own destiny remains to be revealed.

©1990 Ursula K. Le Guin (P)2016 Recorded Books

    Story
    "Brilliance from Le Guin"

    This isn't about powerful wizards and their quests. This is the woman's story, the mundane story after the heroic. A book about gender and power (and dragons), it completes the Earthsea series brilliantly. Truly powerful and sad.

    Story
    "An excellent story and a brilliant telling."

    Tehanu is a critical and introspective look at female intuition and the expectations society can so often impose, knowingly or unknowingly, upon the wife, mother, sister, and daughter.

    Story
    "SJW"

    Loved the first three books in this series, but this book written 18 years later is a reflection of the social justice warrior/feminism that Ursula K. Leguin picked up in that time frame. She completely ruins the story and destroys the best character for politics. I do not recommend it at all. Read the first three, and forget that this one exists.

    Story
    "A story all it's own, tying up loose threads"

    Loved it, an original story woven around familiar characters well told and read. Total contrast to the 'trilogy' it now concludes.
