Re: What do I read first?
Hello Alpha Moth, welcome.
I am a huge Robin Hobb fan and I think that her work is comparable to Martin's in quality(although content is far from similar). You have to read the Farseer trilogy first and then decide if you want to move on to the Tawny Man series or read the liveship traders series. Chronologically, Liveship is in between the series' but it takes you to a different story with different characters. Personally, I read the farseer, then the Tawny man, then soldier son and back to Liveship but either way works.
All I know is you must read Assassin's Apprentice first and go from there. They are fantastic books and I am sure you will be blown away by them just as I was. Go get it and read it...and be ready to lose sleep 'cause you won't want to put it down!
