SummaryAdd a Summary
This is the original boy goes to wizard school. Our young hero Sparrowhawk will let his pride get himself in trouble, and will need to undertake a great journey of self discovery to hopefully get himself out again.
Ged is a prentice wizard who is sent to the isle of Roke to learn his craft with others like him (starts just like Harry Potter). However a spell goes wrong and he is haunted thereafter by his own dark shadow. Ged learns to confront it instead of running, and in doing so he is freed from the evil that tormented him. Loved this book! Very atmospheric and lyrical. There are no armies and bloodshed; the fight is inward instead of against others.
