encounters a world of fantastical beings along the way. The structure of the books adds another element — how much of Kvothe’s story is true? To what extent can we trust this narrator?
The Kingkiller Chronicle is a popular but relatively new phenomenon. Rothfuss spent nearly a decade writing the first book, The Name of the Wind, which came out in 2007 and won a Publisher’s Weekly award and a Quill Award in the fantasy/horror category. He followed it up with The Wise Man’s Fear in 2011, which debuted at the top of the New York Times Bestseller list. The third book, which has the working title The Doors of Stone, has yet to be released. And Miranda isn’t the only Kingkiller obsessive — Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin himself is a fan.
