Reviews

In our Best Books citation, PW wrote, "Le Guin poses probing questions about the power and responsibility of being gifted, through the eyes of a 16-year-old narrator." Ages 12-up. (Apr.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Gifts, in the context of Le Guin's newest, inspire fear more often than gratitude. But this book is a gift in the purest sense, as the renowned fantasist's admirers have waited 14 years since the release of Tehanu for another full-length young adult novel. . . . While intriguing as a coming-of-age allegory, Orrec's story is also rich in the earthy magic and intelligent plot twists that made the Earthsea novels classics. Booklist, 8/01/04 (starred review)
