A Wizard of Earthsea

Book 1, Earthsea Cycle

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Originally published in 1968, Ursula K. Le Guin’s A Wizard of Earthsea marks the first of the six now beloved Earthsea titles. Ged was the greatest sorcerer in Earthsea, but in his youth he was the reckless Sparrowhawk. In his hunger for power and knowledge, he tampered with long-held secrets and loosed a terrible shadow upon the world. This is the tumultuous tale of his testing, how he mastered the mighty words of power, tamed an ancient dragon, and crossed death's threshold to restore the balance.

This ebook includes a sample chapter of THE TOMBS OF ATUAN.

A Wizard of Earthsea

Still hands down my favorite fantasy books. I retread this series more than any other book. Truly a magical realm. Cheers to Ursula for these literary gifts.

at last!

it is so good to see the trilogy + finally in the store!

Good but expensive

The story is good. I'll give this series that much. But it's just so short. Most books I read from iTunes bookstore clock in around 2000-2500 pages (iPhone sized). This and the second book in the Earthsea series are around 350 pages. These are $8.99, my others I compared it to (stormlight archives) I believe were $9.99. I won't be buying anymore of these books unless I can get them for less than $4 because there's just so little in them.
