Synopsis

The third volume, part one of A Song of Ice and Fire, the greatest fantasy epic of the modern age. GAME OF THRONES is now a major TV series from HBO, featuring a stellar cast.

Winter approaches Westeros like an angry beast.

The Seven Kingdoms are divided by revolt and blood feud. In the northern wastes, a horde of hungry, savage people steeped in the dark magic of the wilderness is poised to invade the Kingdom of the North where Robb Stark wears his new-forged crown. And Robb’s defences are ranged against the South, the land of the cunning and cruel Lannisters, who have his younger sisters in their power.

Throughout Westeros, the war for the Iron Throne rages more fiercely than ever, but if the Wall is breached, no king will live to claim it.

As someone who has been reviewing books for several years, I admit that I look at books with small font and over a thousand pages with an inner debate wondering if it would be better if I read two or three books instead (actually, since I haven’t managed to write reviews of half the books I have ...

Often confused with fantasy literature, magical realism has its own defining characteristics that sets it apart as a separate and popular genre.

He suffers more in this book if only because it makes stabs at giving him genuine flaws (aside from being humble and too good at his job), but I get the feeling he’s Martin’s favorite character and will therefore always come out on top.

It is this aspect of the book that leaves you exhausted after reading only a short part of the book, and realistically leaves you feeling the book needed a stronger editorial hand.

Curious Book Fans

There was actually a point when I thought I might not want to continue if Martin kept killing off characters, but of course I did – I can’t expect novels to run exactly as I want them to, and this is not the type of novel where you are guaranteed a happy ending.
