Young Gav can remember the page of a book after seeing it once, and, inexplicably, he sometimes "remembers" things that are going to happen in the future. As a loyal slave, he must keep these powers secret, but when a terrible tragedy occurs, Gav, blinded by grief, flees the only world he has ever known. And in what becomes a treacherous journey for freedom, Gav's greatest test of all is facing his powers so that he can come to understand himself and finally find a true home. "Includes maps."

Review quote

* "This followup to Gifts (2004) and Voices (2006) may be the series' best installment. . . . . Told with shimmering lyricism, this coming-of-age saga will leave readers as transformed by the power of words as is Gav himself. . . . Le Guin's fans have ample reason to hope that the author may be building toward a fantasy cycle as ambitious in scope as her beloved chronicles of Earthsea." (starred review)
