‘What good is power when you’re too wise to use it?’
Ged enters wizard school to learn the rules of magic. Headstrong and naïve, he accidentally unleashes a terrible shadow-creature into the world. To correct the balance, he must face and destroy the shadow, whatever the cost. Ged’s quest takes him to the farthest corner of Earthsea – a land of fearsome dragons, jealous wizards, darkness and light – where he will meet his destiny.
