Hobb. Not only I haven't read Rothfuss, her whole series (with far more books) is actually finished!
Slow and steady wins the race.

Patrick Rothfuss is good, but my vote goes to Robin Hobb.

Oh dear, i’m the only Rothfuss proponent
It's the silence that scares me. It’s the blank page on which I can write my own fears.

I adore mc who take very long walks in woods....

And like my assassins acting like rangers instead of assassins.

Thing is, Fitz isn't really an assassin, or rather, he's one but also a lot more things that end up being more important in his life than just "asassinating". I never read Hobb's books expecting to read assassin's stories.
