Patrick Rothfuss narrates The Slow Regard of Silent Things, a companion novella to his best-selling Kingkiller Chronicle novels that shares an enchanting new perspective on the Four Corners realm.
Renowned as a bastion of knowledge, the University draws the brightest minds to unravel the mysteries of enlightened sciences, such as artificing and alchemy. Yet deep below its bustling halls lies a complex web of abandoned rooms and ancient passageways.
In the heart of this cavernous maze is a young woman named Auri, who calls this Underthing her home. Formerly a student at the University, Auri now spends her days tending to the world around her. She knows that some mysteries are better settled and safe. No longer fooled by the sharp rationality so trusted by those above her, Auri sees beyond the surface of things, into subtle dangers and hidden names.
At once joyous and haunting, The Slow Regard of Silent Things is a richly atmospheric and lyrical tale that features one of the most beloved characters from his acclaimed fantasy series.
