My name is Kvothe.

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.

You may have heard of me.

So begins a tale unequaled in fantasy literature the story of a hero told in his own voice. It is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

It is a rare and great pleasure to find a fantasist writing with true music in the words . Wherever Pat Rothfuss goes he ll carry us with him as a good singer carries us through a song. Ursula K. Le Guin, bestselling author and winner of the National Book Award

About the Author

Patrick Rothfuss was born in Wisconsin where long winters and lack of cable television brought about a love of reading and writing. His mother read to him as a child, and his father taught him to build things. If you are looking for the roots of his storytelling, look there. He still lives in central Wisconsin, still lacks cable television, teaches at the college he grew to love as a student and the long winters force him to stay inside and write.

Nick Podehl is a professional voice actor. He has narrated numerous audiobooks, many of which have won prestigious awards. He currently lives and works around Grand Rapids, Michigan, with his wife.
