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.

Aussie truckie, on the long haul!
Rupert Degas does this book justice!!! but the story probly would've been just as good with a lesser narrater than he, absolutely get this follow on from the 1st amazing book!!! this book is among a rare few that made me want to drive all night to finish it.
The performance of Degas.
Beside Kvothe, Felurian, because what she brings to the story.
He give amazing life to all the characters. He is hands down the best performer of the once you'll find in audible
Made me laugh several times
This story is going to have you on the edge all the time. All the parts have a meaning so be patient when it appears to drive away from the main plot. The Felurian part is wonderful!My only complain is why it was decided to divide the book in 2 parts? The other version found here is just one audiobook of forty-something hours so why not Degas' one? I could not help to feel that they want to leech more money from the consumers. It is still worth to pay for this version that is divided in two because Degas really injects something that the other performer cannot match. This is the only reason because I did not give it 5 starts on the overall category.
I loved Kvothes journey into the Fey and to Ademre
Kvothe of course! Followed closely by Baste when the interludes happen. Dayna iritaes me no end!
Wonderful characters, accents and tension
I love reading many different styles of books. Lately, I have been more into fantasy (a trend started by a Song of Ice and Fire, that led me to the Mistborn Trilogy, The Kingkiller Chronicles, Wheel of Time...) The books that captivate me the most are the ones with the most well-thought characters and well told story... something mundane can be made wonderful by a good writer.
After reading the first book and loving it, I had to read the sequel. This book is excellent as well, with some parts going on for too long, but the story more than makes up for it. I can't wait for the third book to come out!
