    DAY ONE: THE NAME OF THE WIND

    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.

    Praise for The Kingkiller Chronicle:

    "The best epic fantasy I read last year.... He's bloody good, this Rothfuss guy."
    George R. R. Martin, New York Times-bestselling author of A Song of Ice and Fire

    "Rothfuss has real talent, and his tale of Kvothe is deep and intricate and wondrous."
    Terry Brooks, New York Times-bestselling author of Shannara

    "It is a rare and great pleasure to find a fantasist writing...with true music in the words."
    Ursula K. Le Guin, award-winning author of Earthsea

    "The characters are real and the magic is true."
    Robin Hobb, New York Times-bestselling author of Assassin's Apprentice

    "Masterful.... There is a beauty to Pat's writing that defies description."
    Brandon Sanderson, New York Times-bestselling author of Mistborn
