'No one writes about stories like Pat Rothfuss. How the right story at the right time can change the world, how the teller can shape a life.' --Lin-Manuel Miranda This deluxe, illustrated edition celebrates the New York Times-bestselling series, The Kingkiller Chronicle--a masterful epic fantasy saga that has inspired readers worldwide.   This anniversary hardcover includes more than 50 pages of extra content - Beautiful, iconic cover by artist Sam Weber and designer Paul Buckley- Gorgeous, never-before-seen illustrations by artist Dan Dos Santos- Detailed and updated world map by artist Nate Taylor- Brand-new author's note- Appendix detailing calendar system and currencies- Pronunciation guide of names and places   DAY ONE: THE NAME OF THE WIND   My name is Kvothe.   I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep.   You may have heard of me.   So begins a tale unequaled in fantasy literature--the story of a hero told in his own voice. It is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.   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
