Product description

Review

* "Le Guin uses her own prodigious power as a writer to craft lyrical, precise sentences, evoking a palpable sense of place and believable characters. This distinguished novel belongs with its predecessors in all young adult collections." (starred review)

* "This followup to Gifts (2004) and Voices (2006) may be the series' best installment. . . . . Told with shimmering lyricism, this coming-of-age saga will leave readers as transformed by the power of words as is Gav himself. . . . Le Guin's fans have ample reason to hope that the author may be building toward a fantasy cycle as ambitious in scope as her beloved chronicles of Earthsea." (starred review)

"As in "Gifts" and "Voices," Le Guin''s storytelling talents and dry humor shine through in "Powers," leavening the somberness of its theme: the nature of power, both individual and collective, liberating and oppressive. After a gifted young house slave''s sister is killed, he is propelled into a quest for a better life and ''a freedom we could not imagine.'' Gav''s homecoming, to a place not his home, is genuinely moving."


"Le Guin's storytelling prowress transforms small moments into beautiful, poignantly narrated events . . . Fantasy readers seeking an intricate and thoughtful examination of a life that is as much endured as enjoyed will find Gavir to be unforgettable and his gorgeous but dangerous surroundings engaging."--The Bulletin star "With compelling themes about the soul-crushing effects of slavery, and a journey plotline that showcasese Le Guin's gift for creating a convincing array of cultures, this follow-up to Gifts and Voices may be the series' best installment."--Booklist (starred)

BOOKS FOR KEEPS
