Segoy raised all the Isles of Earthsea with the Language of Making, and now that Language that is the springs of wizardry is running dry. The question is why. The Enemy of Morred, White Enchanter and beloved king, once said in jealous rage "If Elfarran be not my own, I will unsay Segoy's word." Now the Master Patterner says "There is fear at the roots." Roots that Archmage Ged and Prince Arren of Morred's line must now find to save all Earthsea from the fear that would rot them.
"He shall inherent my throne who has crossed the dark land living and come to the far shores of the day." - prophecy of Maharion, the Last King of All the Isles
