Description

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

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 Auri'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.

"Masterful.... There is a beauty to Pat's writing that defies description." --Brandon Sanderson, New York Times-bestselling author of Mistborn

"The great new fantasy writer we've been waiting for, and this is an astonishing book." --Orson Scott Card, New York Times-bestselling author of Ender's Game

"It's not the fantasy trappings (as wonderful as they are) that make this novel so good, but what the author has to say about true, common things, about ambition and failure, art, love, and loss." --Tad Williams, New York Times-bestselling author of Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn

"An extremely immersive story set in a flawlessly constructed world and told extremely well." --Jo Walton, award-winning author of Among Others

"Hail Patrick Rothfuss! A new giant is striding the land." --Robert J. Sawyer, award-winning author of Wake
