Years ago, they had escaped together from the sinister Tombs of Atuan—she, an isolated young priestess; he, a powerful wizard. Now she is a farmer's widow, having chosen for herself the simple pleasures of an ordinary life. And he is a broken old man, mourning the powers lost to him through no choice of his own. Once, when they were young, they helped each other at a time of darkness and danger and shared an adventure like no other. Now they must join forces again, to help another in need -- the physically and emotionally scarred child whose own destiny has yet to be revealed.

Review of 'Tehanu (The Earthsea Cycle, Book 4)' on Goodreads

4 stars

Wonderful unheroic postscript to the series, the view from age and infirmity and powerlessness of the breakdown of a society built on acquiring and wielding power. From LeGuin's afterword, "the anger of an underdog at social injustice. ... [transcending to] no longer identifying freedom with power, with separating being free from being in control."

Review of 'Tehanu' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

Warto było przemęczyć się przez poprzednie trzy części, żeby przeczytać tę jedną. To piękna dojrzała opowieść o doświadczonych ludziach, ich wzajemnych relacjach, młodości i starości, społeczeństwie, niepełnosprawności, wychowaniu, strachu, zaufaniu i miłości. A także o sielankowym życiu, które zakłócają niespodziewane wydarzenia.
