Half a King by Joe Abercrombie
Fans of Rothfuss and Martin will enjoy this tale of a boy who would be king. Prince Yarvi was born to a father who despised him and a world who dismissed him. Deception and murder lead to Prince Yarvi making a vow to reclaim the throne he never truly wanted. The world building is strong and the characters are compelling. It is a tale of redemption on many levels and the changing of one's perspective when faced with adversity. I look forward to the next book in the series.
