    In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

    "Long yet unfinished."
    Overall

    The story was OK at best. The author leaves a lot of plot items unexplained, conflicts unresolved, and several main characters unaccounted for at the end. I would guess if you read the next book you may be able to understand what happened in this one. The problem is the book is so drawn out and slow moving, I have no motivation to read the next one. If you are into political fiction I would recommend it, but not if you are into fantasy adventure.
