The Ballad of Kvothe and Denna
In the Kingkiller Chronicles, a series by Patrick Rothfuss, “Namers” can use their voice to speak the names of things and possess power and direction over them. Talk about being “vocal“. (wink wink to I.F. folks)
I’m a fan of the Kingkiller Chronicles. I’ve recruited my wife, brother-in-law, and a few friends to read the books also.
I met Rothfuss’ (and his epic beard) briefly at last year’s Comic Con in San Diego. I forgot to have him sign my Kindle.
