A refreshing fantasy series--this being the second in the Kingkiller Chronicles. As far as the release date on the third, that's still up in the air. But, there are a few novellas and short stories you can assuage your anxiety with: The Slow Regard of Silent Things; and "The Lightning Tree" (which you can find in Rogues). Personally, I'm ready for a re-read on this and The Name of the Wind. :)

book 3 due in books 1 and 2...waiting on 3

Excellent writing. Listened to this book wtih my spouse, we both enjoyed it immensely. Not juvenile fiction, it is appropriate for mature adults. Can't wait for the third book.
