'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. The Name of the Wind is fantasy at its very best, and an
astounding must-read title.
