Part two of the flawless follow up of the first book, just as amazing as the first book. Rupert Degas' narration remains unchanged and consistent, giving the life and voice to the numerous characters Rothfuss created so well. I can't wait for the third book to finally come out and give me yet another experience like this.

Flawless part one of book two of the series, capturing me just as much as the first book did. There is just too many good things to say about this book. I couldn't have asked for more and I loved every bit of it. A must read for any fantasy lover.

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. My name is Kvothe. You may have heard of me.

It doesn't get any better than this. The world created is believable and so real, the characters come to life - even more so due to Rupert Degas' flawless narration and the voices he gives each character, the accents never sounding false or forced and there is never any doubt as to whom is speaking.

The story is rich and captivating, containing much detail and nothing seems out of place. It gripped me and I listened to it non-stop, loving every moment of this compelling story.

I'm eagerly awaiting more from Patrick Rothfuss

Vaelin Al Sorna, warrior of the Sixth Order, called Darkblade, called Hope Killer. The greatest warrior of his day, and witness to the greatest defeat of his nation: King Janus' vision of a Greater Unified Realm drowned in the blood of brave men fighting for a cause Vaelin alone knows was forged from a lie. Sick at heart, he comes home, determined to kill no more. Named Tower Lord of the Northern Reaches by King Janus's grateful heir, he can perhaps find peace in a colder, more remote land far from the intrigues of a troubled Realm.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely! I loved listening to this book and the plot and story is so well written and narrated that I would recommend it to any friends who would enjoy the fantasy genre.

What did you like best about this story?

How it captured me and made me listen to it almost non-stop until the end.

What does Steven Brand bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He gives the characters a better voice and more life than reading it ever would and guides you much better into the story.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Many, though my favorites would be Frentis' reunion with the characters of the previous book. I'd elaborate, but I don't want to spoil anything.
