Had to abstain, as neither writer has ever impressed me.

Jemisin here. Haven't read Rothfuss.
Slow and steady wins the race.

Rothfuss is not at all my cup of tea, and I find Jemisin's work outstanding, so an easy one for me.

Another one where the vote would probably be different a few years ago: Jemisin all the way now, for me

Rothfuss, easily. N.K. Jemisin just does nothing for me.

At least Jemisin finishes her series.
