The Slow Regard of Silent Things
The University; a renowned bastion of knowledge; attracts the brightest minds to unravel the mysteries of enlightened sciences like artificing and alchemy. Yet deep below its bustling halls lies a complex and cavernous maze of abandoned rooms and ancient passageways - and in the heart of it all lives Auri. Formerly a student at the University; now Auri spends her days tending the world around her. She has learned that some mysteries are best left settled and safe. No longer fooled by the sharp rationality so treasured by the University; Auri sees beyond the surface of things; into subtle dangers and hidden names. At once joyous and haunting; THE SLOW REGARD OF SILENT THINGS is a rich; atmospheric and lyrical tale; featuring one of the most beloved characters from Rothfuss' acclaimed fantasy series.
The Name of the Wind
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.
