I've loved every Robin Hobb book and series I have ever read, and most are somewhat inter-related, but the Soldier Son series is completely different, and just as good in its own way. This is Nevare's journey down the path that is expected of his place in the family and his father's firm guidance to get him there....until his father's choice of training changes that path for everyone, and changes Nevare.

The White Queen (The Cousins' War, #1) I have read this book before, actually I love all of Philippa Gregory's book, but I am a history nut anyway
2009 Historical Biography Nominee Top Pick! The White Queen by Philippa Gregory ~ 4.5 Stars! Read our review: http://www.rtbookreviews.com/book-review/white-queen
If you haven't read any Philippa Gregory books, try this one, "The White Queen.'' I'd also recommend "The Other Boleyn Girl'' and "The Constant Princess.'' These are great books, and the next best thing to being a queen yourself.

The Name of the Wind- Patrick Rothfuss #reading_list
The New York Times bestselling novel. This is the riveting first-person narrative of Kvothe, a young man who grows to be one of the most notorious magicians his world has ever seen. From his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, to years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-riddled city, to his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a legendary school of magic, The Name of the Wind is a masterpiece that transports readers into the body and mind of a wizard. We all have friends such as Allison, Misty, and April who push books on us. When my book-pushing friends manage turn out to be right, I am so thankful for them. Not only is The Name of the Wind a great fantasy story that kicks off what promises to be an amazing trilogy, it is the most beautifully written book I read in 2011. The Name of the Wind is a book that takes patience and curiosity to start. Rothfuss doesn’t give the reader all of the details right away, but starts off the novel in an anecdotal fashion. As I read, I found myself trying to figuring out how all of stories Kvothe was telling fit together. Given how brilliant The Name of the Wind was, I know that by the time the Kingkiller Chronicle ends, every plot thread is going to come together in a mind-blowing, heartbreaking, and stunning way. Rothfuss is a seriously brilliant writer. Yes, every sentence of his prose is beautiful and emotional. However, everything in his world from the magic in the novel to the Chandrian is really original. As I turned the final pages of The Name of the Wind, I immediately wanted more. Good thing I already have Wise Man’s Fear waiting on my shelf. The Name of the Wind is an amazing fantasy novel, and after getting a little bit of Patrick Rothfuss in my life, I’m eager to read anything he writes. Disclosure: I purchased a copy of this book.
Title: The Name of the Wind (Kingkiller Chronicles: Day 1) Author: Patrick Rothfuss Copyright Date: 2007 My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars ( Entertaining ) Back-Cover Description I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep. You may have heard of me. So begins the tale of Kvothe-from his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, to years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-riddled city, to his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a difficult and dangerous school of magic. In these pages you will come to know Kvothe as a notorious magician, an accomplished thief, a masterful musician, and an infamous assassin. But The Name Of The Wind is so much more-for the story it tells reveals the truth behind Kvothe's legend. My Thoughts The Name of the Wind was a very entertaining read; it is very well written and action packed. At first glance however, it blatantly follows the same hero's journey template that Star Wars and Harry Potter use. Let's see if this sounds familiar: a young boy, Kvothe, who is very gifted in seemingly every way, encounters a life altering tragedy and is forced upon a path of justice. But as the story evolves, the journey starts to veer off the beaten path. What sets The Name of the Wind apart is that the Kvothe isn't necessarily a hero; or to be more precise, we don't know whether he is a hero or not. He could be one. This is a personal vengeance and in this context, we don't know his quest is for the betterment of everyone or just himself. His ire is directed against at an unknown enemy, but the spotty evidence points to a strange group who only exist in folk tales as the foe of a mighty kingdom long gone. His quest is quite a ride to go along with and takes some unexpected turns which is nice. My only issue with it comes from Kvothe's knack at being great at EVERYTHING. It can get a bit tiresome when it only takes him a few tries to master a new skill; the movie version of the book will have quite a few montage scenes. I really liked this book and will definitely read the next in the series once it comes down to paperback prices. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a page-turning adventure that mixes the epic medieval scenery of Ken Follett's Pillars of the Earth with the classic magical hero's journey we all know and love.
