The sorcerer Alder fears sleep. He dreams of the land of death, of his wife who died young and longs to return to him so much that she kissed him across the low stone wall that separates our world from the Dry Land-where the grass is withered, the stars never move, and lovers pass without knowing each other. The dead are pulling Alder to them at night. Through him they may free themselves and invade Earthsea.

Alder seeks advice from Ged, once Archmage. Ged tells him to go to Tenar, Tehanu, and the young king at Havnor. They are joined by amber-eyed Irian, a fierce dragon able to assume the shape of a woman.

The threat can be confronted only in the Immanent Grove on Roke, the holiest place in the world, and there the king, hero, sage, wizard, and dragon make a last stand.

Le Guin combines her magical fantasy with a profoundly human, earthly, humble touch.

A fitting end to a wonderful series where the world and characters are constantly changing. Vibrant, and full of what life is and means.

The Other Wind is exactly what it needed to be ; an ending. The final book in the Earthsea series follows Tehanu, who has completely dropped her old name, and the king, Lebannen. The book starts with Alder who had been seeing the land that people went to when they died. He travel to try and save his sanity and meets a cast of characters we are already familiar with, if you have been following the series. We are introduced to one other new character, the princess of the Kargad lands (and Lebannen's future bride). The whole book felt like a conclusion and I have to say I appreciate the story Le Guin has created and will remember it for many years to come.
