Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

My name is Kvothe. I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I have 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 the day. I have talked to Goda (TM)s, loved women and written songs that make the minstrels weep. You may have heard of me.

So begins a tale unequaled in fantasy literature a the story of a hero told in his own voice. It is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one mana (TM)s search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

From Publishers Weekly (Starred Review): The originality of Rothfuss's outstanding debut fantasy, the first of a trilogy, lies less in its unnamed imaginary world than in its precise execution.... As absorbing on a second reading as it is on the first, this is the type of assured, rich first novel most writers can only dream of producing. The fantasy world has a new star.

Rothfuss is] the great new fantasy writer wea (TM)ve been waiting for, and this is an astonishing book... a Orson Scott Card, bestselling author of Endera (TM)s Game

Synopsis:

Rothfuss's fantasy literature debut is the story of a hero, told in his own voice. It is a tale of sorrow, of survival, 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.
