The University, a renowned bastion of knowledge, attracts the brightest minds to unravel the mysteries of enlightened sciences like artificing and alchemy. Yet deep below its bustling halls lies a complex and cavernous maze of abandoned rooms and ancient passageways - and in the heart of it all lives Auri. Formerly a student at the University, now Auri spends her days tending the world around her. She has learned that some mysteries are best left settled and safe. No longer fooled by the sharp rationality so treasured by the University, 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 rich, atmospheric and lyrical tale, featuring one of the most beloved characters from Rothfuss' acclaimed fantasy series.

Patrick Rothfuss

Patrick Rothfuss had the good fortune to be born in Wisconsin in 1973, where the long winters and lack of cable television encouraged a love of reading and writing.

After abandoning his chosen field of chemical engineering, Pat became an itinerant student, wandering through clinical psychology, philosophy, medieval history, theater, and sociology.

Nine years later, Pat was forced by university policy to finally complete his undergraduate degree in English. When not reading and writing, he teaches fencing and dabbles with alchemy in his basement.

Patrick Rothfuss is an award-winning as well as Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling author.

  • Get to know Auri a little better

    Perhaps the book that showcases Rothfuss' mastery of words best is this lovely, lyrical, and slightly peculiar novella from the world of the Kingkiller Chronicle. This is Auri's tale, and brings a new perspective to the overall story, and is highly recommended for any waiting for the next installment.

  • Lovely.

    This a strange, beautiful, odd little book. Not quite a story, really, and although it is set in Kvothe's world from Name of the Wind it really isn't much to do with him or his story. If you liked Auri, you will want to read this.
