The University (The Kingkiller Chronicles, by Patrick Rothfuss)Read about the other entries on the list.
A school so old and important it doesn’t even need a name, the University, located just across the Omethi River near Imre, is truly the place to go if you want to master sympathetic magic. Hiding a multitude of secrets in its exclusive archives (whatever you do, don’t try to bring a lantern into the stacks), and with a staff of nine professors, each with their own quirks, its a great place to learn, provided you have the talents (and the marks) to swing the tuition. Kvothe’s trials and tribulations at the University comprise a hefty chunk of Patrick Rothfuss’ addictive (and still maddeningly incomplete) fantasy trilogy—perhaps it should have been called the University of Hard Knocks.
The Name of the Wind (Kingkiller Chronicles Series #1) is among Arwen Elys Dayton's five top books about false identities.
