Publisher's Summary

Part Two of The Wise Man’s Fear, 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 for all fans of HBO's Game of Thrones.

Picking up the tale of Kvothe King killer 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. Sent by the Maer to hunt bandits, Kvothe finds his body, mind and magic pushed to limits he's never before experienced. 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 for all fantasy fans. Engaging and gripping The Wise Man’s Fear is the biggest and the best new fantasy novel out there.

    "A must read!"

    These books are a pleasure to listen to and Rupert Degas' narration brings the characters to life completely. I am so glad to have stumbled over these books and wait with great anticipation for the final book. It has been a long time since I have enjoyed a book so much, the complexities of the story and the detail Patrick Rothfuss has given brings a whole new world to life. He stirs the imagination and writes with such talent. I can only say, if you have not read either book yet, you will not regret it!

    "My new favourite book"

    If you are reading this and haven't yet read 'The Name of the Wind' go do so now! Done?



    Right - The Wise Man's fear is more of the same from Patrick Rothfuss. Its witty, well paced and to be honest i think he could probably explain paint drying and still make it fun. Kvothe is amazing, but not too super human so we feel connected and we want to explore his character fully, both floors and attributes. Luckily this book doesn't end quite so badly with the NEED to read the next book (as The Name of the Wind did) so the long painful wait till the next book won't be as bad.



    Part 2 - I shall try and keep this as spoiler free as possible but **SPOILER ALERT** In this part you will see Kvothe come much more into power and begin to see more similarity between Kvothe of the past and the barman. The pace is great and Rothfuss manages to get across different cultures realistically (which I personally think few authors manage).



    Enjoy!

    Story
    "Magnificent"

    This is, hands down, the best fantasy story in a very, very long time. It has the scope of Tolkien, the depth of Donaldson and the pathos of Frank Herbert.

    It's wrong to make comparisons. This fantasy stands on its own merits. The plot is subtle and the characters are beautifully depicted.

    There's a lot to be wound up in book 3 (Doors of Stone).

    1) He's got to kill a king.
    2) He has to figure out the mystery of the Amyr and the Chandrian.
    3) He has to confront Cinder.
    4) He has to talk to Gods (probably).
    5) He has to confront Denna's patron.
    6) He has to figure out what the deal with the Doors are.
    7) He has to steal a princess from a "sleeping barrow-king."
    8) He has to transform into a humble, hidden Innkeeper.
    9) He has to screw up the entire world.
    10) He has to try to fix the present.

    (from w3.io9.com)

    We have to wait until 2016 for Day 3. C'mon, Patrick - get a move on!
