Such an excellent series!
It is easy to see why Patrick Rothfuss and Brandon Sanderson have a friendly rivalry going. They both write amazing fantasy with hard magic systems, main characters you root for and fast moving plots. What more could you ask for? ‘The Name of the Wind’ and ‘The Wise Man’s Fear’ are highly recommended reads.
Oh, and Patrick Rothfuss’s blog is hilarious. He is a seriously funny guy, who apparently cares about what is going on in American right now, so he’s a good guy too.
