by Patrick Rothfuss (DAW books)

The Name of the Wind is an incredible fantasy book beautifully written by Patrick Rothfuss. It stars Kvothe, a teenager who is hoping to be accepted into the Arcanum (aka The University) – a legendary school of magic.

But first he spends time with a troupe of travelling players, and has many adventures in a crime-ridden city. Will Kvothe be accepted into the Arcanum to achieve his dream of becoming a wizard? And what will happen next if he does?

I would definitely recommend this book to lovers of fantasy, action and adventure.

Suitable for readers aged 12–14 years.
