I listened to the audio book version of A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms.
I felt that this book is to the "Song of Ice and Fire" series as "The Hobbit" is to LOTR; a bit lighter than the novels in the main series, but not any less important.
A note on the audio book: There are parts where the protagonist has inner monologue. The reader says these lines softer than the surrounding dialogue, and it was often so quiet that I had to turn the volume WAY up to hear what he was saying.

A relatable story about a boy who is a mix of two cultures and doesn't know where he belongs, with a twist of the cultures being human and monster.
The first volume was a solid okay, but the story builds and hooks in the second volume.

This rarely humorous and mostly depressing novel is about a boy who is bullied, and must decide if the world is worth saving.
This is not part of the review, but I need to say that I finished this book on January 29, 2016. To find out why this is significant, read the book.
