Wizards, and dragons, and evil old stones! Oh, my! The world of Earthsea is full of supernatural elements. Luckily, our hero is a master (in training) of the supernatural. Or maybe we should say that's unlucky, since it's Ged's magical abilities that get him into trouble in the first place. We could also note that all of these fantasy elements are pretty well integrated into this natural world. For instance, we don't have dragons on every island – predators that big would just go eat everything in sight. And although we have super powerful mages, they have to be careful with their magic – because of the balance, dude.
