KDL Description:


Kvothe, the hero and villain of a thousand tales, is presumed dead, but lives as the simple proprietor of an inn. Prompted by a biographer called Chronicler who realizes his true identity, Kvothe starts to tell his life story.

Amazon Description:

This is the riveting first-person narrative of Kvothe, a young man who grows to be one of the most notorious magicians his world has ever seen. From his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, to years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-riddled city, to his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a legendary school of magic, The Name of the Wind is a masterpiece that transports readers into the body and mind of a wizard.
