    Dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the number-one New York Times best-selling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series - as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

    Story

    I read this series years ago and enjoyed it. Its not one of my top picks but i thought I would give it a listen. I remember now that the story is enjoyable, but It has a bit too much romantic mushyness for me personally. All in all its a good in depth story.
    What is not good is the narrator in this book. The first book of the series had a great narrator. Why would they fix what is absolutely not broken? Its definitely broken now. I am suffering through it but i looked at the next several books in the series and it looks like they introduce two new narrators as well as use the one from the first book and this one yet again. I am very disappointed. I will give it a chance but i anticipate not being able to finish listening to this series. Narration is KEY! Consistency is key. I believe its "A Song of Ice and Fire" series that uses the same great narrator. Take notes people!

    They say Black Dow has killed more men than winter and clawed his way to the throne of the North up a hill of skulls. The King of the Union, ever a jealous neighbor, is not about to stand by smiling while Black Dow claws his way any higher. The orders have been given, and the armies are toiling through the northern mud. Thousands of men are converging on a forgotten ring of stones, on a worthless hill, in an unimportant valley, and they've brought a lot of sharpened metal with them.

    Matt Carothers says: "Thank you, Joe Abercrombie!"
    "I concur with the others.....Bad narration."

    This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

    This book is so so....Listened to the entire thing and finished feeling unimpressed but a little intrigued. I didn't purchase the sequel right away. But I found myself reading reviews and description's on both book 1 and 2 and there's a slight peak of interest. I'm gonna give "Day 2" a chance and see if the story grabs hold of me more. We shall see...
