The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicle: Day One)

by Patrick Rothfuss

My name is Kvothe. I have stolen princesses back from sleeping burrow kings. I burned down the tow 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 days. 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 unequalled 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.

El nom del vent

by Patrick Rothfuss

«Em dic Kvothe. Potser has sentit parlar de mi.» En una fonda en terra de ningú, un home es disposa a fer el relat de la seva vida per primera vegada. La veritable història que només ell coneix, una història que els rumors, les conjectures i els contes de taverna han anat deformant al llarg del temps fins a convertir-lo en un personatge llegendari al qual tothom creu ja mort: en Kvothe... músic, captaire, lladre, estudiant, mag, heroi i assassí. Ara vol revelar tota la veritat sobre ell mateix. I haurà de començar pel principi: la infantesa en una companyia dartistes itinerants, els anys malvivint com a lladregot als carrers duna ciutat gran i larribada a una universitat on espera trobar les respostes que ha estat buscant. Atípica, profunda i sincera, El nom del vent és una novel·la daventures, dhistòries dins daltres històries, de misteri, damistat, damor, de màgia i de superació, escrita amb mà de poeta i que captiva -per la seva originalitat i la mestria amb què està narrada- a tots els que la llegeixen. www.lahistoriadekvothe.com

El nombre del viento

by Patrick Rothfuss

"Viajé, amé, perdí, confié y me traicionaron." En una posada en tierra de nadie, un hombre se dispone a relatar, por primera vez, la auténtica historia de su vida. Una historia que únicamente él conoce y que ha quedado diluida tras los rumores, las conjeturas y los cuentos de taberna que le han convertido en un personaje legendario a quien todos daban ya por muerto: Kvothe... músico, mendigo, ladrón, estudiante, mago, héroe y asesino. Ahora revelará la verdad sobre sí mismo. Y para ello debe empezar por el principio: su infancia en una troupe de artistas itinerantes, los años malviviendo como un ladronzuelo en las calles de una gran ciudad, y su llegada a una universidad donde esperaba encontrar todas las respuestas que había estado buscando. Atípica, profunda y sincera, El nombre del viento es una novela de aventuras, de historias dentro de otras historias, de misterio, de amistad, de amor, de magia y de superación, escrita con la mano de un poeta y que ha deslumbrado -por su originalidad y la maestría con que está narrada- a todos los que la han leído.

Ara el relat prossegueix a El temor dun home savi, i podem dir a tots aquells que desitjaven llegir la continuació de El nom del vent que lespera ha valgut la pena. www.lahistoriadekvothe.com

The Wise Man's Fear (The Kingkiller Chronicle: Day Two)

by Patrick Rothfuss

Day Two: The Wise Man's Fear. "There are three things all wise men fear: the sea in storm, a night with no moon, and the anger of a gentle man." An escalating rivalry with a powerful member of the nobility forces Kvothe to leave the University and seek his fortune abroad. Adrift, penniless, and alone, he travels to Vintas, where he quickly becomes entangled in the politics of courtly society. While attempting to curry favor with a powerful noble, Kvothe discovers an assassination attempt, comes into conflict with a rival arcanist, and leads a group of mercenaries into the wild, in an attempt to solve the mystery of who (or what) is waylaying travelers on the King's road. All the while, Kvothe searches for answers, attempting to uncover the truth about the mysterious Amyr, the Chandrian, and the death of his parents. Along the way, Kvothe is put on trial by the legendary Adem mercenaries, forced to reclaim the honor of the Edema Ruh, and travels into the Fae realm. There he meets Felurian, the faerie woman no man can resist, and who no man has ever survived. Under her tutelage, Kvothe learns much about true magic and the ways of women. In The Wise Man's Fear Kvothe takes his first steps on the path of the hero and learns how difficult life can be when a man becomes a legend in his own time.
