The Earthsea Cycle is a series of YA fantasy novels by American author Ursula K. Le Guin. Earthsea is a world of mostly uncharted ocean with hundreds of islands. Magic is an essential part of society. Mages are trained in the island of Roke and then sent to whichever location they are most needed. The series was adapted to a mini-series by Sci-Fi (now Syfy) in 2004, which the author was not pleased with.

Originally a trilogy, the Earthsea Cycle began in 1968 with the novel A Wizard of Earthsea. The original trilogy concluded with The Farthest Shore in 1973. The series was revived for the book Tehanu: The Last Book of Earthsea (which it was not). The most recent novel in the series is The Other Wind, published in 2001. Below is a list of Ursula K. Le Guin’s Earthsea books in order of when they were originally released:
