The 12 Days of Bookmas Countdown - #2

The Earthsea Cycle: The Tombs of Atuan - Now this was a good book. Though Ged was the main character in A Wizard of Earthsea, he is just a secondary character here. This book is about Tenar, a young woman that governs the labyrinth of tombs which Ged attempts to rob. Tenar and Ged develop a friendship and Tenar must struggle with accepting her role in the world or trusting an outsider. Getting through the first Earthsea book was totally made worthwhile by this compelling follow-up.
