Description

“There are three things all wise men fear: the sea in storm, a night with no moon, and the anger of a gentle man.”
My name is Kvothe. You may have heard of me.


So begins the tale of a hero told from his own point of view—a story unequaled in fantasy literature. Now in The Wise Man’s Fear, Day Two of The Kingkiller Chronicle, Kvothe takes his first steps on the path of the hero and learns how difficult life can be when a man becomes a legend in his own time.

    Day 2!! What an amazing continuation to the story. Patrick Rothfus certainly knows the way of things. All things. I'm pretty sure everyone who read Name of the Wind already knows how great this book will be so, I'm done here. I'm on to Auri's story while I patiently wait for Door of Stone.
  • One of the best books ever written, which is incredible since the first book is also incredible!!

    Rothfuss can't stop! This is an incredible sequal to one of the best books every written, and this one is even better than the first. The continuing journey of Kvothe is exhilarating. And once again, the book is narrated by the one and only Nick Podehl, who is one of the greatest audio production artists to ever live. A great book, and a fantastic audiobook!

    Wow. These books are amazing! The Wise Man's Fear is now my all-time favorite book. I am always looking for a great read with great characterization, amazing storyline to take on an adventure. Rothfuss does this and more - look no further. If you are looking for a great book of ANY fictional genre read this series.

    Wrapped me up like a warm blanket that I didn't want to untangle from. I didn't realize that the next book isn't out yet but I am hoping that since this was released in 2011 and it's 2016 maybe I won't have to wait a long for the next. Fingers crossed!!!!
  • Hard to put down
