Ged, the greatest sorcerer in all Earthsea, was called Sparrowhawk in his reckless youth. Hungry for power and knowledge, Sparrowhawk tampered with long-held secrets and loosed a terrible shadow upon the world. This is the 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 classic has been reissued to coincide with the Sci Fi Channel's Earthsea miniseries, premiering in December 2004 and starring Danny Glover, Isabella Rossellini, and Shawn Ashmore.
