If you've not discovered Patrick Rothfuss yet, and love a good fantasy series, don't hesitate, dive in. This is a little novella which follows the first two in his Kingkiller Chronicles, and shouldn't be attempted unless you've read them first.

Now waiting impatiently for the third book in the series, which must be due out soon .... surely .... :-)
