The long-awaited fourth in the Earthsea series, Tehanu follows the path of Tenar, main character of the second novel in this series. Tehanu isn't quite as powerful as the previous three - the ending is a little...abrupt - but it's still...wonderful. Beautifully written. Ursula LeGuin has a mastery of the language that is inspiring. I find myself thinking more poetically when I read her words. LeGuin is a truly powerful writer, and in Tenar, she finds the perfect vehicle for her voice.
