The doors of stone are the third novel of The Kingkiller Chronicle series written by American author Patrick Rothfuss. It belongs to the genre of fantasy and is similar to the writing style of George R. R. Martin. According to many, this will be the final book of the series. However, the author who has been at it since 2011 has asked us not to believe any rumors until the book is finally available in the market.
The story will most likely commence from where its prequel, The Wise Man’s Fear, left it. It will cover the story of Temerant, just like the previous part covers the story of Kvothe after the ending of that of arc.
Moreover, the upcoming novel will cover the third day’s story as related to Chronicler. At the beginning of the process, Rothfuss admitted that he was not very fond of the title given and wished for it to be a little shorter.
Doors of Stone Release Date
Though no official date has been revealed yet, there were some rumors regarding it that do not hold much credibility.
Next year, I'm not going to publish Doors of Stone. #ResolutionRevolution
(Sorry, but you might as well start coming to grips with it now.)

If we, however, go according to the news leak, the readers will have access to it by this year’s month of August. In one of the podcasts, Rothfuss claimed that the book has been making good progress.
Moreover, there was also news that said that it should have been released last year, but the process got delayed. At this moment, considering the global lockdown due to the widespread Coronavirus pandemic, it will not be a surprise of we witness an even greater delay in the book’s release.
Online sites like Amazon, Flipkart, and Book Depositaries started the book’s pre-booking in the month of August last year (2019). That provision is right now on hold due to the rules of social distancing where these sites are only focussing on delivering essential items to households.
