Product description

""There are three things all wise men fear: the sea in storm, a night with no moon, and the anger of a gentle man." My name is Kvothe. You may have heard of me." So begins the tale of a hero told from his own point of view--a story unequaled in fantasy literature. Now in "The Wise Man's Fear," Day Two of The Kingkiller Chronicle, Kvothe takes his first steps on the path of the hero and learns how difficult life can be when a man becomes a legend in his own time.

Review quote

"In the end, I think that if I distill why I've loved these books so much more than others, it's because of this: They're beautiful. Wise Man's Fear is a BEAUTIFUL book to read. Masterful prose, a sense of cohesion to the storytelling, a wonderful sense of pacing.... None of that is the reason for the awesomeness any more than a single dab of paint is the reason why a Monet is a thing of wonder. But if you step back...you are left with a sense of awe. There is a beauty to Pat's writing that defies description." --Brandon Sanderson, New York Times bestselling author of THE WAY OF KINGS
