    Acclaimed author Michael J. Sullivan created instant best sellers with his spellbinding Riyria Revelations series. This first volume introduces Royce Melborn and Hadrian Blackwater, two enterprising thieves who end up running for their lives when they’re framed for the death of the king. Trapped in a conspiracy bigger than they can imagine, their only hope is unraveling an ancient mystery - before it’s too late.

    Story

    This book is just what I was looking for. It's a nice refreshing adventure in a classic fantasy world with plenty of humor and a dash of lightheartedness. The story is on the predictable side, in fact I would say it's more predictable than not, but I didn't mind. I was just happy to have a break from all the gloom and darkness that seems to saturate so many fantasy series today. I narrator is also excellent I think with a nice range of voices. My sister characterizes him as "British but not snooty". Over all a great choice if you want an fun, easy going, epic fantasy.

    "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...."

    Story

    I had read The Name of the Wind years before I had been turned onto audible and I usually continue a specific format (print or audio) with a series once I've started it because I feel like it can be hard to adapt to the readers interpretation sometimes and so with the Wise Man's Fear I did read it in print. Then I was looking for a book to listen to, and my sister had raved about this reader, and it was on sale, so I bought it. Let me tell you I've loved Rothfuss's work from the first page, but NIck Podehl really does an amazing job with the reading. I will admit that it took time to warm up to him (being more partial to the "deep boomy" voices) but his voice really is more appropriate to the character and once I did warm up to him there were moments when his impeccable timing caused me to laugh out loud despite having already read the book before. I can't imagine anyone doing a better job.
