Customer Reviews


The third installment of the original trilogy. One of the best fantasy trilogies ever written.

A Feast of Words

As always, LeGuin quenches the thirst of those who yearn for a good story. Despite its slow beginning, the pace quickly picked up with Le Guin's deft hand to illustrate dragons and the mystic world.

Awful, I hate to say it........

The first in the series I enjoyed, brief as it was. It progressively worsened until I find myself so numb for having wasted my time struggling through it that I don't have the energy to properly warn others away. This last book was so very BAD that It took me months to read it, where Normally I cannot put a book down.
