“[Le Guin] reconsiders the relationship between magic and something more basic: life and death itself.”—Publishers WeeklyThe archipelago of Earthsea is in turmoil. The dragons are breaking old truces, and even the dead threaten to return from the afterlife, using the sorcerer Alder's dreams as a conduit. Alder seeks advice from Ged, once Archmage. It's decided that the threat can only be confronted on the holy isle of Roke. In this magnificent grand finale to the Earthsea Cycle, Le Guin ties up many loose ends from her previous novels and brings back favorite characters to the delight of her fans.

The greatest fantasies of the 20th century are J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings and Ursula K. Le Guin's Earthsea Cycle. Regrettably, the Earthsea Cycle has not received the fame and sales of Tolkien's trilogy. Fortunately, new Earthsea books have appeared in the 21st century, and they are as powerful, beautiful, and imaginative as the first four novels. The fifth novel and sixth book of the Earthsea Cycle is The Other Wind.
The sorcerer Alder has the power of mending, but it may have become the power of destruction: every night he dreams of the wall between the land of the living and the land of the dead, and the wall is being dismantled. If the wall is breached, the dead will invade Earthsea. Ged, once Archmage of Earthsea, sends Alder to King Lebannen. Now Alder and the king must join with a burned woman, a wizard of forbidden lore, and a being who is woman and dragon both, in an impossible quest to save Earthsea.
Ursula K. Le Guin has received the National Book Award, five Nebula and five Hugo Awards, and the Newbery Award, among many other honors. The Other Wind lives up to expectations for one of the greatest fantasy cycles. --Cynthia WardFrom the Back Cover:
"Le Guin understands magic and dragons better than anyone, and her writing only gets better with each new book. THE OTHER WIND is a triumph."
--Michael Swanwick, author of Stations of the Tide
"I adored THE OTHER WIND. Real mythmaking, done by a master of the craft. . . . The magic of Earthsea is primal; the lessons of Earthsea remain as potent, as wise, and as necessary as anyone could dream."
--Neil Gaiman, author of The Sandman
