    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. My name is Kvothe. You may have heard of me.

    Wonderful

    Sequel to the extraordinary The Name of the Wind, The Wise Man's Fear is the second instalment of this superb fantasy trilogy from Patrick Rothfuss. This is the most exciting fantasy series since George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire and a must for all fans of HBO's Game of Thrones.

    Patrick Rothfuss narrates The Slow Regard of Silent Things, a companion novella to his bestselling Kingkiller Chronicle novels that shares an enchanting new perspective on the Four Corners realm. Renowned as a bastion of knowledge, the University draws the brightest minds to unravel the mysteries of enlightened sciences, such as artificing and alchemy. Yet deep below its bustling halls lies a complex web of abandoned rooms and ancient passageways.

    A magnificent and delightfully joyful book.

    This is an unusual and delicious piece of writing. Patricks use of language and his story telling are simply elegant and and endlessly enjoyable.
