The Name of the Wind is a gripping tale of a young boy who is orphaned and forced to live in a crime ridden city, his escape from this bitter place and the pursuit of his life-long dream to join the University of Magic.  The reader is taken through a new world of friends, enemies and interesting magics. It is told in the voice of Kvothe, a humble tavern owner, recalling his exciting life, his hardships and triumphs as he builds his way to glory.

 

I have only read these two books in the series, but it captured my imagination and I loved every second of reading it!
