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....
