The Kingkiller Chronicles

Top Fantasy Series, June 2012

Pat Rothfuss is genius. He put out a sensational opening volume, then made everyone wait for years to read volume two. It was worth the wait. The story of Kvothe is split between the present and the past, and told in the first person, which gives readers full access to the thoughts of the character. It's a feat not easily done, but Rothfuss has managed to do it with flying colors. Kvothe takes readers across multiple lands and through incredible trials as his mysterious story unfolds. Most certainly an adventure worth taking.
