Welcome Our Guest Reviewer AND The Fantastic Novella From Patrick Rothfuss

Deep below the University, there is a dark place. Few people know of it: a broken web of ancient passageways and abandoned rooms. A young woman lives there, tucked among the sprawling tunnels of the Underthing, snug in the heart of this forgotten place.

Her name is Auri, and she is full of mysteries.

The Slow Regard of Silent Things is a brief, bittersweet glimpse of Auri’s life, a small adventure all her own. At once joyous and haunting, this story offers a chance to see the world through Auri’s eyes. And it gives the reader a chance to learn things that only Auri knows....

In this book, Patrick Rothfuss brings us into the world of one of The Kingkiller Chronicle’s most enigmatic characters. Full of secrets and mysteries, The Slow Regard of Silent Things is the story of a broken girl trying to live in a broken world.
Guest Reviewer Eric B. says:
"This novella is gem of great workmanship. It’s a song, it sings from the page: melancholy, joyful, dark, strange and fascinating. The character of Auri is unique in my reading experience. We feel the apprehension and triumphs as she carefully navigates the often sinister halls of her subterranean world.  Mysterious and mystical, lyrical and lilting, innocent and worldly wise, the prose reads like poetry in this lovely ballad of balance, peril, hope and love. Fans of Patrick Rothfuss will not be disappointed, I think, in this extraordinary work of bright imagination."
