Part Two of The Wise Man’s Fear 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.

Prince Yarvi has vowed to regain a throne he never wanted. But first he must survive cruelty, chains and the bitter waters of the Shattered Sea itself. And he must do it all with only one good hand. Born a weakling in the eyes of his father, Yarvi is alone in a world where a strong arm and a cold heart rule. He cannot grip a shield or swing an axe, so he must sharpen his mind to a deadly edge.

What did you like best about Half a King? What did you like least?

I thought the book was short however well structured. The story itself was disappointing and basically followed the story of the Lion King!

What will your next listen be?

Currently listening to Blood Song by Anthony Ryan

What about Ben Elliot’s performance did you like?

Well voiced and good distinction between characters

Could you see Half a King being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

nope
