Staff Reviews

The Name of the Wind is a dark and wild tale, beautifully written and impossible to put down. There is a depth and realism to the magic that is almost tangible as young Kvothe walks a dangerous road.

— Eric, Atlanta


A high-action novel written with a poet's hand, this brilliant debut fantasy by Patrick Rothfuss is a powerful coming-of-age story of a magically gifted young man, told through a riveting first-person narrative that allows the reader to "become" the hero.
