    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.

    Overall

    George Martin's first in the Song of Ice and Fire Series is one of the best, most balanced, pieces of adult fantasy literature I have ever read or listened to. It is a story deeply incised with political intrigue, mysteries, and powerful magic which, cleverly, is kept mysterious and unrevealed throughout most of the novel. The story follows the Stark family, lords of the north as their realm, the seven kingdoms begins a perilous descent into chaotic times, and the Lannisters, a family of arrogant, Machiavellian, perverse urban royals trying to maintain their power. There are dozens of other major characters and scores of stories within the main story.

    Roy Dotrice's reading is also exceptional. Dotrice gives each character their own unique voice, and acts them out rather than simply reciting their lines.
