A Wizard of Earthsea and The Tombs of Atuan *pre-loved*

Originally published in 1968, Ursula K. Le Guin's A Wizard of Earthsea marks the first of the six now beloved Earthsea titles. Ged was the greatest sorcerer in Earthsea, but in his youth he was the reckless Sparrowhawk. In his hunger for power and knowledge, he tampered with long-held secrets and loosed a terrible shadow upon the world. This is the tumultuous 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.

In the second novel in the Earthsea series, The Tombs of Atuan, Tenar is chosen as high priestess to the ancient and nameless Powers of the Earth, and everything is taken from her - home, family, possessions, even her name. She is now known only as Arha, the Eaten One, and guards the shadowy, labyrinthine Tombs of Atuan.

Then a wizard, Ged Sparrowhawk, comes to steal the Tombs' greatest hidden treasure, the Ring of Erreth-Akbe. Tenar's duty is to protect the Ring, but Ged possesses the light of magic and tales of a world that Tenar has never known. Will Tenar risk everything to escape from the darkness that has become her domain?

This includes two pre-loved paperbacks - A Wizard of Earthsea and The Tombs of Atuan, by Ursula Le Guin. The books were first published in 1968/72 and these were printed in 1978 and 1985, respectively. The books are in good condition, with some wear and creases to the covers. Atuan has a sticker on the inside of the cover from a previous owner. There is a faint, old, water mark at the top of first 10 pages on Atuan, but it does not detract from reading (the main text starts on page 11).
