The Farthest Shore is the third book in the Earthsea Cycle book series. When they tried to attack him, Orm Embar striked Cob first, but then, he was slashed by Cob, and so, the dragon died. His helper is a young prince who knows no magic or life outside the privilege of court, last of the line of the house of Morred. The story is narrated in the fairy tale tradition; with the strangely fascinating, melodic, lyrical tale rhythm.

It's not just the magic being lost - all the joy, skill and art is leaving the world. To all the Ash fans great news — a fifth one has just been released. Roke Island is the magical heart of Earthsea and is protected by potent spells and a magical wind and fog that ward off evil. Duny is the name of the boy.

Magic is a potent and omnipresent force in Earthsea—everyone keeps their true names hidden lest someone have power over them—but it is also underwhelming whenever it actually puts in an appearance. The Farthest Shore, set some fifteen or twenty years after the events of The Tombs of Atuan, tells the story of Ged, now an Archmage, and Arren, a young prince, and their voyage around the world of Earthsea in search of the Unmaker, who is responsible for the disappearence of magic and of the balance of the world. Creativity, hope and inspiraiton are stripped away. People crossed over from the land of the living to the land of the dead by stepping over a low stone wall on the crest of a hilltop. The Farthest Shore is the longest of the original Earthsea Trilogy but still a mere pamphlet by today's "doorstop" standard for fantasy books, which can be weaponized by simply hurling at your target.
