Tehanu Ursula K. Le Guin Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
The Nebula and Locus Award–winning fourth novel in the renowned Earthsea series from Ursula K. LeGuin gets a beautiful new repackage.
In this fourth novel in the Earthsea series, we rejoin the young priestess the Tenar and powerful wizard Ged. Years before, they had helped each other at a time of darkness and danger. Together, they shared an adventure like no other. Tenar has since embraced the simple pleasures of an ordinary life, while Ged mourns the powers lost to him through no choice of his own.
Now the two must join forces again and help another in need—the physically, emotionally scarred child whose own destiny has yet to be revealed….
With millions of copies sold worldwide, Ursula K. Le Guin’s Earthsea Cycle has earned a treasured place on the shelves of fantasy lovers everywhere, alongside the works of such beloved authors as J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. Now the full Earthsea collection—A Wizard of Earthsea, The Tombs of Atuan, The Farthest Shore, Tehanu, Tales from Earthsea, and The Other Wind—is available with a fresh, modern look that will endear it both to loyal fans and new legions of readers.

User reviews about this book
Magic is also in ordinary people. We just have to have patience to look at it. Once again Madame LeGuin pens characters with so much dimension that they seem to jump off the page only to walk inside our hearts. Feminism? Bah! This book asserts a woman's power and questions societal's matriarchal view.
The author seems to think that this book breaks the mold of powerful men in fantasy series. I think it is a boring book about weak men and women with no power. The story is choppy and could be written about a child in any city. It has disjointed use of magic and fantasy. This book empowers none of its characters.
Wizard of Earthsea is still my favorite but all books in this realm have been great reads. The ending seemed a bit swift but very succinct
