The Tale of Laniel Young-Again - Patrick Rothfuss 9.24   21

From New York Times bestselling author Patrick Rothfuss comes The Tale of Laniel Young-Again set in The Kingkiller Chronicle world.

Laniel's Tale is a companion story set in Modeg. Originally envisioned as a novella, it grew into a 100,000 word novel in 2014. Author Patrick Rothfuss shelved the book after writing two-thirds of it to focus on The Doors of Stone.

It tells the origin story of one of the legendary figures in the world: Laniel young-again. She is a woman who decides to go out and see the world after marrying and raising her kids. The author is playing against the idea that any female heroine is either the plucky tomboy type or inspired by a need to protect her children.

The Kingkiller Chronicle :: Series

Series contains 3 primary works and has 5 total works.

The Kingkiller Chronicle is a fantasy book series by Patrick Rothfuss, which recounts the story of Kvothe, an adventurer, arcanist and famous musician. The book is largely told in a "story-within-a-story" format, where the reader learns about the story of Kvothe's life as he narrates it to a scribe.

The plot is divided into two different timelines: the present, in which Kvothe tells the story of his life to a man known as the Chronicler in the Waystone Inn, and Kvothe's past, which makes up the majority of the first two books. The present-day interludes are in third person from the perspective of multiple characters, while the story of Kvothe's life is told entirely in the first person from his own perspective.
