"A magical excursion into a wondrous world."
Mephisto, March / April 2016

The University of Imre is well known for its scholarship. She attracts the best minds to decipher the riddles of science, craft and alchemy. But deep beneath the hustle and bustle in their halls stretches a network of abandoned rooms and old corridors. The girl Auri lives in the heart of this cavernous labyrinth. The »Unterding« is your home.

She has left behind the cold, deceptive rationality of the people who live above her and she penetrates deeply into the mystery of things. A story full of beguiling images and magical traces as only Patrick Rothfuss can tell.

"The Music of Silence" adds a fascinating story all of its own to the world of the regicide chronicle.
