Praise

Praise for The Narrow Road Between Desires

[Rothfuss] clearly has a heart for stories . . . His prose is the sort that forces you to stop cold and just savor the words.” —Eric Pierce, Fanfare

The Narrow Road Between Desires is a fascinating book . . . When I think about this book, the word I keep coming back to is ‘beautiful’ . . . Between the art and the additions to the prose, which roughly double the size of The Narrow Road Between Desires from The Lightning Tree, there’s no doubt that this is the ideal way to experience this story.” —Daniel Roman, Winter is Coming

The great new fantasy writer we’ve been waiting for, and this is an astonishing book.” —Orson Scott Card, New York Times-bestselling author of Ender’s Game

“It’s not the fantasy trappings (as wonderful as they are) that make this novel so good, but what the author has to say about true, common things, about ambition and failure, art, love, and loss.” —Tad Williams, New York Times-bestselling author of Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn

“I was reminded of Ursula K. Le Guin, George R. R. Martin, and J. R. R. Tolkien, but never felt that Rothfuss was imitating anyone.” —The London Times
