The superb, No. 2 Sunday Times-bestselling sequel to The Name of the Wind.
Sequel to the extraordinary The Name of the Wind, The Wise Man's Fear is the second instalment of this superb fantasy trilogy from Patrick Rothfuss. This is the most exciting fantasy series since George R.R Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire and a must-read for all fans of HBO's Game of Thrones.
Picking up the tale of Kvothe Kingkiller once again, we follow him into exile, into political intrigue, courtship, adventure, love and magic and further along the path that has turned Kvothe, the mightiest magician of his age, a legend in his own time, into Kote, the unassuming pub landlord.
Packed with as much magic, adventure and home-grown drama as The Name of the Wind, this is a sequel in every way the equal to its predecessor and a must-read for all fantasy fans. Readable, engaging and gripping The Wise Man's Fear is the biggest and the best new fantasy novel out there.
About the Author
Patrick Rothfuss had the good fortune to be born in Wisconsin in 1973, where the long winters and lack of cable television encouraged a love of reading and writing. After abandoning his chosen field of chemical engineering, Pat became an itinerant student, wandering through clinical psychology, philosophy, medieval history, theatre and sociology. Nine years later, Pat was forced by university policy to finally complete his undergraduate degree in English. When not reading and writing, he teaches fencing and dabbles with alchemy in his basement.
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 (starred review)
