The third book in the Earthsea series focuses on Ged, the Archmage, and Arren, the prince of Enlad. Arren agrees to go on a journey with Ged out of admiration and develops love towards him as they travel. They visit a few different towns trying to find information about why people are being tricked into dying/ following people who kill them. The focus of this book is life, death, and fear. My favorite part of the book was the last 30 pages or after the introduction of the dragons. Overall, all of the Earthsea books are equally memorable in my mind and I don't have a favorite.
