Review

"The Debut of A Writer We Would All Do Well to Watch. Patrick Rothfuss has real talent, and his tale of Kvothe is deep and intricate and wondrous." -- Terry Brooks

Book Description

A stunning fantasy debut

Product Description

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'

So begins the tale of Kvothe - currently known as Kote, the unassuming innkeepter - from his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, through his years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-riddled city, to his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a difficult and dangerous school of magic. In these pages you will come to know Kvothe the notorious magician, the accomplished thief, the masterful musician, the dragon-slayer, the legend-hunter, the lover, the thief and the infamous assassin.

The Name of the Wind is fantasy at its very best, and an astounding must-read title.

'I haven't been so gripped by a new fantasy series in years. It's certain to become a classic' The Times

'The Name of the Wind has everything . . . it's humorous and terrifying and completely believable' Tad Williams
