Eleanor – The Tales of Earthsea by Ursula Le Guin

20160923_151612I’ve gone for four books in one with The Tales of Earthsea novels by Ursula Le Guin, an adventure full of magic and darkness in an otherworldly fantasy land of islands and uncharted seas. A Wizard of Earthsea (1968), The Tombs of Atuan (1971), The Farthest Shore (1972) and Tehanu (1990) are beautifully written and so barely there in detail to what we know today. Sparrowhawk is myth-like, a fabled anti-hero. Earthsea has been a firm favourite since I was a teenager. Now I know Le Guin created a genre, writing science fiction and fantasy before it had a name. She’s a master.
