This is the first book in a series of 6 books by Ursula K. Le Guin. She is an awesome science fiction writer. Not too long ago I reviewed The Lathe of Heaven, another excellent book. I listened to this book and had a hard time pausing it when life got in the way. Just a great story that is very original. Lots of adventure and magic. I can’t wait to read the second book.
When Sparrowhawk, a young student at the School for Wizards, becomes overanxious and tries his dangerous powers too soon, he unleashes a terrible evil throughout the land.
