My name is Kvothe.
I burned down the town of Trebon.
I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings.
I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in .
I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep.
I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life.
I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day.
You may have heard of me.
So begins a tale unequaled in fantasy literature—the story of a hero told in his own voice.
