it is best to have knowledge of the former Kingkiller books
4 May 2017
As the author suggests, the book is not something you would read without previous knowledge of the universe it takes part in, by reading the books before it. It is a standalone from the series, but to truly understand what is taking place, it is best to have knowledge of the former Kingkiller books.
It's a fantastic read. It does not hold to normal conventions of how stories are produced and told but for this character, it is perfect and the messages it portrays throughout are beautiful.
If you love the Kingkiller chronicles, it is worth your time to read this.
