Never, even while I was waiting for the final books in Stephen King's Dark Tower series, have a I yearned more for the release of a book as much as this one. As time, and various release dates passed I grew nervous. What if The Wise Man's Fear was perfect before Rothfuss began to tinker? What if he added 100,000 unnecessary words?

I can happily report that was not the case. All the things I loved in the first book were continued and in some cases improved in the second book.

I have one, very small complaint, which is that I didn't find the writing/action in the first 200 pages nearly as compelling as the the latter half of the book, however I'd happily read another 200 of the same quality just to get to spend more time in the world Rothfuss has created.

I can only hope that the third and final book of the series comes out in less than three years, and that Rothfuss continues to write many more fine words.
