'Dawn was coming. The Waystone Inn lay in silence, and it was a silence of three parts.'
I've actually been reading this book for a few days now, and it's completely living up to my expectations.
This sentence echoes throughout both this book and the first one in the trilogy, The name of the Wind. Reading this beginning was like a confirmation of what I knew. Of what I expected, that the book was going to be of epic scale.
It set my nerves on edge, heightened my anticipation, and fixed a smile firmly on my face; regardless that I was sitting in the town centre on a random street bench at the time.
