Product description

From the Back Cover

'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 the 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'



'An outstanding debut fantasy... this is the type of assured, rich first novel most writers can only dream of producing. The fantasy world has a new star' Publishers Weekly



'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

Review

Patrick Rothfuss' debut is set in an unnamed but fully realised fantasy world, and his characters are detailed and convincing.

Patrick Rothfuss has real talent, and his tale of Kvothe is deep and intricate and wondrous - Terry Brooks

The Name of the Wind has everything: magic and mysteries and ancient evil, but it's also humorous and terrifying and completely believable - Tad Williams

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 - Publishers Weekly --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
