Reading The Slow Regard of Silent Things: Part II – Also By Patrick Rothfuss

Leave a comment

ALSO BY PATRICK ROTHFUSS features the first of Nate Taylor’s illustrations and even it tells us something.  It depicts a portion of starry sky and a waning crescent moon within the circle of which the stars are visible.  This isn’t entirely new.

We’ve seen it beforStarse in the Lee Moyer’s (NSFW) illustration of Felurian for the 2013 Worldbuilders calendar and the Name of the Wind playing cards by Albino Dragon.  However, what this illustration does is end any querying speculation about whether these images are canon.  Elodin asks “Where does the moon go when it is no longer in our sky?” (WMF 88)

Felurian reiterates the concept (WMF 670)

Felurian’s eyes were black in the dim light. “the moon has our two worlds beguiled, like parents clutching at a child, pulling at her, to and fro, neither willing to let go.”

She stepped away, and we stood as far apart as we could, the stone gripped in our hands. “when she is torn, half in your sky, you see how far apart we lie.” Felurian reached toward me with her free hand making futile grasping gestures in the empty water. “no matter how we long to kiss, the space between us is not ripe for this.”

But there were occasional expressions of lingering doubt.  It’s a fantasy world.  One of it’s signature features is the ever moving moon.

The text on the page lists the first two books of the trilogy, so it’s only those books also published by DAW.

The Kingkiller Chronicle:
Day One: THE NAME OF THE WIND
Day Two: THE WISE MAN’S FEAR
