Description

Discover #1 New York Times-bestselling Patrick Rothfuss' epic fantasy series, The Kingkiller Chronicle. -I just love the world of Patrick Rothfuss.- --Lin-Manuel Miranda - -He's bloody good, this Rothfuss guy.- --George R. R. Martin - -Rothfuss has real talent.- --Terry Brooks OVER 1 MILLION COPIES SOLD! DAY ONE: THE NAME OF THE WIND My name is Kvothe. I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep. You may have heard of me. So begins a tale unequaled in fantasy literature--the story of a hero told in his own voice. It is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend. Praise for The Kingkiller Chronicle: -The best epic fantasy I read last year.... He's bloody good, this Rothfuss guy.- --George R. R. Martin, New York Times-bestselling author of A Song of Ice and Fire -Rothfuss has real talent, and his tale of Kvothe is deep and intricate and wondrous.- --Terry Brooks, New York Times-bestselling author of Shannara -It is a rare and great pleasure to find a fantasist writing...with true music in the words.- --Ursula K. Le Guin, award-winning author of Earthsea -The characters are real and the magic is true.- --Robin Hobb, New York Times-bestselling author of Assassin's Apprentice -Masterful.... There is a beauty to Pat's writing that defies description.- --Brandon Sanderson, New York Times-bestselling author of Mistbornshow more
