At the Convent of Sweet Mercy, young girls are raised to be killers. In a few the old bloods show, gifting talents rarely seen since the tribes beached their ships on Abeth. Sweet Mercy hones its novices' skills to deadly effect: it takes 10 years to educate a Red Sister in the ways of blade and fist. But even the mistresses of sword and shadow don't truly understand what they have purchased when Nona Grey is brought to their halls as a bloodstained child of eight, falsely accused of murder - guilty of worse.

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.

I was enticed by the title and the sample. I read the review "One of the best..." By Edwina (Stowmarket, United Kingdom) Apr 8, 2012. ( and The Lies of Locke Lamora is my favourite book of all time). The review confirm my decision to spend my precious credit on The Name of the Wind (Part One). I haven't regretted a single moment and I have enjoyed every second! totally enthralling story and amazing narration by Rupert Degas. If you were to ask me whats my favourite book of all time,i now wouldn't know what to say. my only advice would try it yourself and then ask your self the same question.

Jake Sullivan is a licensed private eye with a seriously hardboiled attitude. He also possesses raw magical talent and the ability to make objects in his vicinity light as a feather or as heavy as depleted uranium, all with a magical thought. It's no wonder the G-men turn to Jake when they need someoneto go after a suspected killer who has been knocking off banks in a magic-enhanced crime spree.
