A Wizard of Earthsea


"A Wizard of Earthsea" is the first book in the Earthsea Cycle. It is a beautiful book about a young magician coming to know himself. It was written for a young adult audience before YA was a genre. But it is more than simply a YA novel. It's themes of the hero's journey, good versus evil, and embracing the shadow self speaks to all ages. It is a fantasy novel without a war or some other "us versus them" trope.
