The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

Told in Kvothes own voice, this is the tale of the magically gifted young man who grows to be the most notorious wizard his world has ever seen.

The intimate narrative of his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, his years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-ridden city, his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a legendary school of magic, and his life as a fugitive after the murder of a king form a gripping coming-of-age story unrivaled in recent literature.

A high-action story written with a poets hand, The Name of the Wind is a masterpiece that will transport readers into the body and mind of a wizard.

Patrick Rothfuss discusses The Name of the Wind

'Kingkiller Chronicle' Book 3 Is 'Moving Forward' But Not Fast Says Author Patrick Rothfuss

While Rothfuss has long been reluctant to discuss any potential release dates for Book 3 of The Kingkiller Chronicle —"I never talk about deadlines anymore. I say, 'When it's ready I will bring it to you,' and until then, trust that I am working," Rothfuss said during the podcast interview—he did describe how the writing process is proceeding. I made promises very early on in interviews where I'm like 'Yeah, I'm going to do these books one a year. I had just been published for like two months, I had no idea what I was talking about. Rothfuss described how he finished his first draft for the entire Kingkiller Chronicle trilogy in the year , about seven years before the publication of the first book in the series, The Name of the Wind followed in by The Wise Man's Fear. But while he had the skeleton of a complete narrative, The Kingkiller Chronicle has changed substantially since.

Fantasy novels have become an integral part of literature that many have now come to know. They inspire awe in us, incite emotions and subvert our expectations with their setting in a parallel universe. Fantasy novels do more than entertain readers and tickle them at the spot where they appreciate creative flairs. They paint a picture of a fictional universe, engage us in the setting and make us believe such a world is real. In fact, after reading a great novel , we begin to highlight the basis on which our real world can be compared and perhaps made better. Lovers of creative writing especially those that hold the fantasy genre in high regards should be familiar with the name Patrick Rothfuss.

The Wise Man's Fear , the second book in the three-part Kingkiller Chronicle , was released in , a few months before the publication date for A Dance with Dragons , the most recent book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series the basis for Game of Thrones. So when it comes to highly anticipated fantasy series, fans of author Patrick Rothfuss, not George R. Martin, have had the longer wait. In The Kingkiller Chronicle the bard Kvothe tells the story of his life each novel a single day of recounting from the tavern where he lives in self-imposed exile, under an assumed name. In the first two books of the Chronicle we've learned of Kvothe's studies at a university of magic, his entanglements with the non-human Fae and troubles in both high and low society, as he's pinched between Vintish nobles and Imre loansharks. But we've yet to learn why he lives incognito and whether Kvothe found his vengeance against the seven deadly beings known as The Chandrian who killed his family long ago. We don't even know what king this kingkiller has killed.
