The second novel in the renowned Earthsea series from Ursula K. LeGuin
When young Tenar is chosen as high priestess to the ancient and nameless Powers of the Earth, everything is taken away -- home, family, possessions, even her name. For she is now Arha, the Eaten One, guardian of the ominous Tombs of Atuan. While she is learning her way through the dark labyrinth, a young wizard, Ged, comes to steal the Tombs' greatest hidden treasure, the Ring of Erreth-Akbe. But Ged also brings with him the light of magic, and together, he and Tenar escape from the darkness that has become her domain.
With millions of copies sold, Ursula K. Le Guin's Earthsea Cycle has earned a treasured place on the shelves of fantasy lovers everywhere. Complex, innovative, and deeply moral, this quintessential fantasy sequence has been compared with the work of J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, and has helped make Le Guin one of the most distinguished fantasy and science fiction writers of all time.

The second installment of a tremendous fantasy series. Right up there with the works of Tolkien and C.S. Lewis.
It was ok... a bit boring though
It definitely was not my favorite book. It was very interesting at the end but the start and middle of the book were pretty boring. They just talked about how Arha wouldn’t like being in this ruined palace or sometimes she might like it or, yeah, you get the point. I give it 3 stars because it was a bit interesting with the appearance of Ged. I really wanted to answer all of Arha’s questions to Ged! Arha, didn’t you read Wizard of Earthsea, the 1st book?
If you are into Harry Potter books, this book is for you: It has the excitement at the end just like Harry Potter books
