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.

This group can confront the threat only in the Immanent Grove on Roke. Joining them, Alder, a mender of pots, may be the only one who can mend the world.

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

    " As always, I enjoy a trip to Earthsea. I loved the theme of this novel and am going to start Le Guin's Hainish series. Her writing always makes me feel good. "

    " Worth the journey -- though The Other Wind is not really a "stand alone" novel. You have to take the whole journey. Also, I'm still disturbed by what seems to be inexplicable emotional reactions of almost all the characters. Why do they respond "harshly?" Why the anger? Also, there are a number of tangents which are just that, tangents that ultimately turn out to be also inexplicable and seemingly unnecessary. In the end, though, she accomplishes what she failed to accomplish in the first volume, Wizard of Earthsea, with, perhaps, a little help from Phillip Pullman. "

    " I love Ursula LeGuin, and I love this book. It's comfort reading for me...interesting but not complicated, poetic without being pretentious, and full of story lines about suffering, loss and death leading to freedom, wisdom and transformation. "
