The Slow Regard of Silent Things by Patrick Rothfuss

Untitled-14 A companion to the epic fantasy series Rothfuss began with The Name of the Wind and continued in The Wise Man’s Fear, this novella centers on Auri, the mysterious and shy waif who lives below the University in what she calls the Underthing. The Underthing is a world of tunnels, underground rooms, murky pools, tangles of pipes and the detritus of other people’s lives. I read this slim volume in one sitting, devouring Auri’s third person account of the seven days leading up to one of Kvothe’s visits. I now impatiently await volume three of the Kingkiller Trilogy, Doors of Stone.

It’s not book three. It’s not a mammoth tome that you can use to threaten people and hold open doors. It’s a short, sweet story about one of my favorite characters. It’s a book about Auri. ~ Patrick Rothfuss
