'This is a magnificent book' Anne McCaffrey 'I was reminded of Ursula K. Le Guin, George R. R. Martin, and J. R. R. Tolkein, but never felt that Rothfuss was imitating anyone' THE TIMES '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' So begins the tale of Kvothe - currently known as Kote, the unassuming innkeepter - from his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, through his years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-riddled city, to his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a difficult and dangerous school of magic. In these pages you will come to know Kvothe the notorious magician, the accomplished thief, the masterful musician, the dragon-slayer, the legend-hunter, the lover, the thief and the infamous assassin.

This book was written from the point of helping people of all walks of life. Remember, just one of life's little details can change life's meaning. The power of faith, the power of love, and the power of the human spirit–they are as far apart as they can be in this life. Yet it's these three elements that when combined can change who you are and what you can be. There is an expression through mortal eyes, and it is based on this fact and is true. The whole of the human race must realize that they can only look at life through mortal eyes. You would be surprised not only at what you would see but also at what you would encounter if you allow yourself to be immersed in your life's story. As you read this book and mix with humanity, you will see that there are a great many people that are handicapped. Some of the handicaps are visibly. Other are not so visible. A great many people may need someone like you to reach out and share yourself with them. Help someone open the door to his or her full potential! Help them not feel awkward or uncomfortable when they share a story or a joke. It may not be funny to you, but laugh anyway, or at least smile. There is no tax or charge. Life is full of opportunities to share yourself, from family members to friends or just an acquaintance. Make it a goal to give someone a hug today. Tell someone you love them every day. Remember that it takes great courage to expose the real self. Allow yourself the opportunity to get to know the greatest person in your earthly life: yourself.
