New Fantasy Epic

So, you've read Robert Jordan and Terry Goodkind and you're looking for that next fantasy epic… well, try Patrick Rothfuss. The 1st book of his Kingkiller Chronicles, The Name of the Wind, revolves around the legendary Kvothe recounting his life story, and what a life it is. Musician. Actor. Magician. University prodigy. Assassin. Thief. Expelled student. Innkepper… All these contradictory rumors can't be true, can they? With some very original mythology and a fiendishly clever hero, this book is all entertainment. Check it out.
