Discover #1 New York Times-bestselling Patrick Rothfuss epic fantasy universe of The Kingkiller Chronicle, in this illustrated companion novella, The Slow Regard of Silent Things. I just love the world of Patrick Rothfuss. Lin-Manuel Miranda He s bloody good, this Rothfuss guy. George R. R. Martin Rothfuss has real talent. Terry Brooks Deep below the University, there is a dark place. Few people know of it: a broken web of ancient passageways and abandoned rooms. A young woman lives there, tucked among the sprawling tunnels of the Underthing, snug in the heart of this forgotten place. Her name is Auri, and she is full of mysteries. The Slow Regard of Silent Things is a brief, bittersweet glimpse of Auri s life, a small adventure all her own. At once joyous and haunting, this story offers a chance to see the world through Aurir s eyes. And it gives the reader a chance to learn things that only Auri knows.... In this book, Patrick Rothfuss brings us into the world of one of The Kingkiller Chronicle s most enigmatic characters. Full of secrets and mysteries, The Slow Regard of Silent Things is the story of a broken girl trying to live in a broken world. Praise for The Kingkiller Chronicle: The best epic fantasy I read last year.... He s bloody good, this Rothfuss guy. George R. R. Martin, New York Times-bestselling author of A Song of Ice and Fire Rothfuss has real talent, and his tale of Kvothe is deep and intricate and wondrous. Terry Brooks, New York Times-bestselling author of Shannara "It is a rare and great pleasure to find a fantasist writing...with true music in the words." Ursula K. Le Guin, award-winning author of Earthsea "The characters are real and the magic is true. Robin Hobb, New York Times-bestselling author of Assassin s Apprentice "Masterful.... There is a beauty to Pat's writing that defies description." Brandon Sanderson, New York Times-bestselling author of Mistborn"
