Andrea | 2563 comments This one has some very minor spoilers (view spoiler) and references to events in the Earthsea books, but nothing major so again pretty safe to read for someone who hasn't read the books yet.

Not a huge spoiler :)

A mage, not entirely sane & using the name Gully, later Otak (true name Irioth), wanders around volunteering as a healer. He rents a room with a widow named Gift (Emer). Some of the locals take a dislike to him.

A late appearance by Ged, who tells a little backstory.

A kind of small, local story.
