Episode 92 of CasterQuest recaps chapters 64-66 of “The Wise Man’s Fear” the second book in the best-selling fantasy series “The Kingkiller Chronicle” by Patrick Rothfuss.

The tension over the potential poison plot mounts, and Kvothe must make a choice- escape Severen or stay and possibly risk the wrath of the Maer and the culprits behind the scheme!

Is Stapes as treacherous as he sounds? Will the Maer ever reward Kvothe for his service? What the heck is Denna even doing in Severen? Will Xavier approve Mandy’s pitch for a romantic comedy? Find out!

KKC News: Patrick Rothfuss was recently at a couple different events, the Joco Cruise and Emerald City comic con where he hosted panels and discussions and dropped some interesting food for thought.
-He hinted that the trilogy might be a giant prologue to something else.
-He mentioned he would like his friend Lin Manuel Miranda to be cast as Arliden. He also says LMM is now his best friend forever and they are going to live in a tree fort and play settlers of Catan, and that Lin smells like cinnamon and Xbox.
