There was the time before Tessa met Hardin, and then there’s everything after.... Life will never be the same. Tessa is a good girl with a sweet, reliable boyfriend back home. She’s got direction, ambition, and a mother who’s intent on keeping her that way. But she’s barely moved into her freshman dorm when she runs into Hardin. With his tousled brown hair, cocky British accent, and tattoos, Hardin is cute and different from what she’s used to. But he’s also rude - to the point of cruelty, even. For all his attitude, Tessa should hate Hardin.

Fallon Swift, approaching her thirteenth birthday, barely knows the world that existed before - the city where her parents lived, now in ruins and reclaimed by nature since the Doom sickened and killed billions. Traveling anywhere is a danger, as vicious gangs of Raiders and fanatics called Purity Warriors search for their next victim. Those like Fallon, in possession of gifts, are hunted - and the time is coming when her true nature, her identity as The One, can no longer be hidden. In a mysterious shelter in the forest, her training is about to begin under the guidance of Mallick, whose skills have been honed over centuries.

I loved this more than the first year! I cried way more than I have in a long time when reading a book but perhaps it was just my connections to the characters after reading "Year One" recently. I truly cannot wait for the next book in this series.

It began on New Year's Eve. The sickness came on suddenly, and spread quickly. The fear spread even faster. Within weeks, everything people counted on began to fail them. The electrical grid sputtered; law and government collapsed - and more than half of the world's population was decimated. Where there had been order, there was now chaos. And as the power of science and technology receded, magic rose up in its place. Some of it is good, like the witchcraft worked by Lana Bingham, practicing in the loft apartment she shares with her lover, Max.

This story gave a different take on a familiar story. Who hasn't heard a story about a plague and survivors surviving? This gives a whole new aspect I had not heard before, MAGIC. The character hopping was a little frustrating but it makes sense in the end. If you can make it through the first couple "weeks" then you will love it!

Deep below the University, there is a dark place. Few people know of it: a broken web of ancient passageways and abandoned rooms. A young woman lives there, tucked among the sprawling tunnels of the Underthing, snug in the heart of this forgotten place. Her name is Auri, and she is full of mysteries. The Slow Regard of Silent Things is a brief, bittersweet glimpse of Auri’s life, a small adventure all her own. At once joyous and haunting, this story offers a chance to see the world through Auri’s eyes. And it gives the reader a chance to learn things that only Auri knows.... In this book, Patrick Rothfuss brings us into the world of one of The Kingkiller Chronicle’s most enigmatic characters. Full of secrets and mysteries, The Slow Regard of Silent Things is the story of a broken girl trying to live in a broken world.

There are several "Reader bewares" stated by the author about this book. He is not wrong, this story is not for everyone. I had a tough time getting through it if there were distractions but I love the character Ari and I was always curious about her from the previous books, this story gives you a glance into what her life is like. It gives her character so much depth that The Name of the Wind and KingKiller don't have the ability to give. I recommend this book as a read for anyone who has already read the two previous and who can open their mind to 'different'.
