Already we have two books of the series of “The Kingkiller Chronicle” and these are.

The Name of the Wind

In this book, we found a story of a character named Kvothe. This is a fantasy novel released in 2007. We also discovered a world called Temerant. Kvothe is one of the most charming magicians but this is not a complete story of magic. It’s all about gaining more power.
