A Wizard of Earthsea

A Wizard of Earthsea

  

by Ursula K. Le Guin

A Wizard of Earthsea Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?

G

The hottest thing in this book is when Ged guesses the true name of Vetch's sister, Yarrow. Now, that might not sound so romantic, but if you think about it, it means that Ged totally saw into Yarrow's true being – it's like he saw her soul. Pretty steamy, friends. But it only happens once, and it could happen in a Disney movie, so this one gets a G rating.
