Discover #1 New York Times -bestselling Patrick Rothfuss' epic fantasy series, The Kingkiller Chronicle. "I just love the world of Patrick Rothfuss." --Lin-Manuel Miranda * "He's bloody good, this Rothfuss guy." --George R. R. Martin * "Rothfuss has real talent." --Terry Brooks OVER 1 MILLION COPIES SOLD! DAY ONE: THE NAME OF THE WIND My name is Kvothe. 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. You may have heard of me. So begins a tale unequaled in fantasy literature--the story of a hero told in his own voice. It is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend. Praise for The Kingkiller Chronicle: "The best epic fantasy I read last year.... He's bloody good, this Rothfuss guy." -- George R. R. Martin , New York Times -bestselling author of A Song of Ice and Fire "Rothfuss has real talent, and his tale of Kvothe is deep and intricate and wondrous." -- Terry Brooks , New York Times -bestselling author of Shannara "It is a rare and great pleasure to find a fantasist writing...with true music in the words." -- Ursula K. Le Guin , award-winning author of Earthsea "The characters are real and the magic is true." -- Robin Hobb , New York Times -bestselling author of Assassin's Apprentice "Masterful.... There is a beauty to Pat's writing that defies description." -- Brandon Sanderson , New York Times -bestselling author of Mistborn

display_description The story of a hero told in his own voice. It is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend. So begins the tale of Kvothe, from his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, to years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-riddled city, to his daringly brazen bid to enter a difficult and dangerous school of magic.
