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-read for all fans of HBO's GAME OF THRONES.

Picking up the tale of Kvothe Kingkiller 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.

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-read for all fantasy fans. Readable, engaging and gripping THE WISE MAN'S FEAR is the biggest and the best new fantasy novel out there.

    This book, as well as the first are absolutely brilliant. When I saw how long it was, I was a bit apprehensive. But you dont feel like you want to move on and hurry things up. You’re right there in the moment with Kvothe. Sometimes I feel like I can hear the music in Imre, smell the books in the archives. I can picture every character as this they were in front of me. This book, and this story are truely alive!

    A brilliant gripping dialogue with a free flowing lilt. The storyline keeps you engaged, while you wonder where the whole thing is going and how the start of the Name of the Wind will come to be understood.

    To think that this book is better than the first is unbelievable. I didn't think it could get much better than the first, and Patrick, you have blown my little mind out of the skull! Thank you for producing amazing material.
