The first two novels were loved by the people and they are desperately waiting for the third one for a decade now. Here’s everything we know about the last book.
Doors of Stone Background:
Even before the first book, named The Name of the Wind, was published, Rothfuss expressed his desire for the Kingkiller Trilogy. While in an FAQ, 2017, the author said that despite the editor’s disagreement, the title of the third and final book would remain the Doors of Stone due to popular consensus. Though later, he convinced the editor of this title.
The First Two Books:
The name of the first two books is The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man’s Fear. One was released in 2007 and the second one was released in 2011, exactly, 10 years before today. The fantasy novel set in a fantasy world focuses on the territory of Temerant. The story revolves around a character named Kvothe.
When he grows up, he became one of the greatest magicians the world has ever seen. Beyond all the magic and spells and whatnot. It’s a simple story of a wizard who was an orphan but against all odds, he got admission to one of the most prestigious universities of Magic.
The second novel starts where the first ended. This novel focuses on the struggles of Kvothe to find the real reason his parent died. He is also searching for the mystery of Amyr, the Chandrian. And he wants to uncover the mystery behind everything. The second novel also focuses on our main characters and their struggles to live for his legacy.

Many people have deduced that the reason the amazon product entry of doors of stone had a fake release date. They claim that the reason behind this is that amazon requires a release date of the product to be mentioned for it to make a valid entry. However, we could only make speculation. And this made all the fans who have been waiting for Doors of Stone for more than a decade, very sad.
The book will take off right from where it left in The Wise Man’s Fear- Kvothe’s life. Apparently, the length of this final novel will be comparatively shorter than the previous ones, especially The Wise Man’s Fear.
Recently, Rothfuss dropped some hints about the plot while chatting with his fans on his social media handle. As he said, a new magical adventure might begin and this time one of the most important locations of his trilogy- the University might hold lesser importance in the final one. Besides this, the storyteller might or might not turn up in the showdown. He left an uncertain remark, and this led to another mystery in the minds of the readers.
Lastly, this book might hold an account of a series of funerals as Rothfuss added that everyone dies and it should be in the right way at the right setting.
With this, readers can finally assume that the last plot of this trilogy is going to be way more exciting and exhilarating as one goes through the pages of the novel.
Why Doors of Stone Release Date has been DELAYED for So Long?
As confirmed by Patrick Rothfuss, Doors of Stone is the final book in The Kingkiller Chronicle‘ trilogy and would “conclude Kvothe’s story” closing off the current arc, but further stories in the world of Temerant would be forthcoming. This was confirmed by Patrick Rothfuss in Episode 153 of The SF Signal Podcast. . He also said that the book presented challenges different from The Wise Man’s Fear’s. In 2020, Rothfuss’s publisher and editor Elizabeth Wollheim expressed frustration with the delay, stating she had not read “a word” of the book nine years on.
In 2021, Rothfuss apologized for the long delay in releasing The Doors of Stone, citing issues in his personal life and his mental health as reasons. And this has been the primary reason behind the delays in Doors of Stone.
About Doors of Stone and Background
The Doors of Stone will tell the life story of Kvothe. It picks up from where the wise man’s fear left off. It will cover the third and final day of the chronicle-related stories, ending the “Kovart’s Story” and the “arc” that began in the name of the wind. However, Rothfuss intends to create more works with Temerant as the background.
Just before the release of the first novel The Name of the Wind, Rothfuss confessed in an interview that he already had already been thinking of the title “The Doors of Stone” mind as a provisional title for his third book in his Kingkiller Trilogy. Rothfuss has confirmed that he had already written the entire Kingkiller Trilogy as one story. And now he is actively trying to revise the content of his story, (namely the final book, The Doors of Stone) to ensure that the third and final book is “good”.
In January 2017, while answering an FAQ, he confirmed that his editor was not fond of the title of the third book. But despite his editor’s disapproval, he chose to name his third book, “The Doors of Stone” simply because it had, by “popular consensus” (i.e. Rothfuss referring to the book as such in interviews), become the de facto title; Rothfuss added that the editor was now “comfortable” with the title.
Rothfuss has said that The Doors of Stone will most likely be no longer than The Wise Man’s Fear and guesses that it may even be a bit shorter.
