Some new Amazon REVIEWS! Thanks.

Lady Amanuet-
Though I enjoy fantasy it is not a genre I usually default to. Genesis was recommended to me by a friend because of our mutual like of Dune. I was very impressed with this debut work! The worlds and characters are richly developed and Garret does a great job of drawing the reader in. I am excited to read the next installment!
I gave this 4 instead of 5 because the complexity of the universe Garret created can be a bit confusing at times and the length can be a bit overwhelming to some.


Customer-
Wonderful world you can sink your teeth into. Story telling executed in a fantastic style that makes you want to keep reading. The characters jump off the page and make you believe in their journey. Good till then end. When is the next one?


Sassy-
This book was phenomenal! I am eagerly anticipating the next volume of this series! Wade, hurry it up!!! The characters are so full of depth, deep dialog, and detail that in reading, I felt I could hear them next to me if I had closed my eyes with their gruff voices. Smell their skin, feel the worn edges of their clothing even. Garret has such a powerful way with description. It really pulls you in, making you ready to turn the pages as fast as you can to get to the next part of the adventure. The prologue almost lost my attention, but I'm so thankful that I continued to read. It wasn't that the prologue wasn't good, it's that it contained so many facts that my brain was swirling. Almost as if I needed to make a flow chart to keep up. Once I began reading the meat of the book, it all made sense. Be prepared to be engulfed in this book. Once you start reading, you won’t want to put it book down. You too will crave to know more! My poor Kindle Fire almost couldn’t keep up with me turning pages so quickly!

J. Masterson-
Wow! Didn't expect this. Not normally one for fantasy stuff but REALLY enjoyed this. This is a first time author? I was hooked from the opening pages. Eagerly anticipating Book Two!

Michael R. Collins-
Complex and compelling. Diving into this book is diving into a complete world already served and delivered. The world in which Wade Garret has built is not one that is constructed as you go. It’s hard not to get sucked into the rich and developed story as well as the elaborate and well fleshed out characters. As we follow the main character Jak, the story chugs along, building up momentum and makes it hard to put down
In the beginning you feel a little bombarded with all the little details, but the farther you get those details help guide you through and make it all the more real.
This isn’t a book to expect to read quickly and move on. It’s a fantastic tome of sci-fi/fantasy immersion.

Mr. Rothfuss' thoughts on Literary Snobbery...

Here's Pat Rothfuss on literary-academic snobbery, after a professor at UW-Madison told students that going to hear him read wouldn't count for class credit BECAUSE HE WRITES FANTASY!


Well said Pat.
