The Kingkiller Chronicle has proven to be one of the best new fantasy series of the past decade. A film, TV and video game adaptation are all currently in development, so get ready for Kingkiller to take the multimedia world by storm sooner rather than later.

Wait a minute … what the heck is The Kingkiller Chronicle?

Well, so far, the bulk of it comes from two books written by Patrick Rothfuss: The Name of the Wind, published in 2007, and The Wise Man’s Fear, published in 2011. A third book with the working title of The Doors of Stone has more or less been announced, but no release date has been set.

The Kingkiller Chronicle basically tells the story of Kvothe, an adventurer and musician, and … well, let’s see if our own Jackie Jennings can sum it all up in three minutes, shall we? Watch below.
