I gather a few readers didn't appreciate the last book of Earthsea. Perhaps not knowing there would be two more books was the real upset. I loved this one.
5/5 ⭐. Pure feminist genius. I can't describe enough how mind-blowingly well the exploration of the themes in this book is executed. It takes the seemingly powerless characters-women, children, the elderly, the disabled-and showcases their true power. The afterword brings it all together and makes me love Le Guin even more. Just go pick up this series right now. #projectreread
