The Tombs of Atuan
Ursula K. Le Guin 1971 192p MMPB
When young Tenar is chosen as high priestess to the ancient and nameless Powers of the Earth, in this second book in the Earthsea cycle, everything is taken away — home, family, possessions, even her name. For she is now Arha, the Eaten One, guardian of the ominous Tombs of Atuan. While she is learning her way through the dark labyrinth, a young wizard, Ged, comes to steal the Tombs’ greatest hidden treasure, the Ring of Erreth-Akbe.
