Publisher's Summary

Years before, they had escaped together from the sinister Tombs of Atuan - she an isolated young priestess, he a powerful wizard. Now she is a farmer's widow, having chosen for herself the simple pleasures of an ordinary life. And he is a broken old man, mourning the powers lost to him not by choice.

A lifetime ago they helped each other at a time of darkness and danger. Now they must join forces again to help another - the physically and emotionally scarred child whose own destiny remains to be revealed.

©1990 Ursula K. Le Guin (P)2016 Recorded Books

    "Great story"

    Another great story. I guess some can be picky but a great story is just that and I enjoyed this one.

    Story
    "Delivers on Promise of Tenar and the Tombs"

    Only a misogynist or someone who heard excerpts could misread this book as feminist preaching. Round characters, beautiful sentences, and a fantastic reader, to boot!

    "Very Disappointed"

    Just a bunch of feminist preaching. Stick with the first 3 books and don't bother with this one.

    "the beauty and terror of the ordinary"

    loved it. it went beyond the other books in the series. instead of escapism it turns the reader around to face themselves.

    "great story and a great performance"

    in this chapter Le Guin creates more of a domestic drama than a fantasy saga

    Story
    "what a tale!!!"

    initially it was a bit of adjustment to switch from narrator Rob Inglis to Jenny Sterlin, but she stepped up to the plate and nailed the part. Since Ged played a lesser role, it was only appropriate that a female voice was used to portray the many female characters. I love all the earth sea books . At the end of my book journey I just wanted to enter the magical world of Gont ride with dragons and meet up with Ged and his entourage . It was a very sweet read!

    "Different, in a good way."

    I really enjoyed this one. A far different type of tale, but just as grand in its own way. Recommend.

    Story
    "An excellent story and a brilliant telling."

    Tehanu is a critical and introspective look at female intuition and the expectations society can so often impose, knowingly or unknowingly, upon the wife, mother, sister, and daughter.

    Story
    "A story all it's own, tying up loose threads"

    Loved it, an original story woven around familiar characters well told and read. Total contrast to the 'trilogy' it now concludes.
