    A comet the color of blood and flame cuts across the sky. And from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns. Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war.

    "Roy Dotrice is the man"
    Overall

    Zip it, haters. George RR Martin's second book is even better that the first one and the narration of Roy Dotrice makes it even better.
    Sidenote is I'm about to start number 4 and some other narrator is taking the reins, what gives, dude? I may have to skip the audio and go straight to paperback in a show of solidarity with my homey Roy.

    Part-time environmentalist and philanthropist Ben and his ex-mercenary buddy Chon run an independent Laguna Beach–based marijuana operation, reaping significant profits from an established clientele. But they may have come up against something that they can't handle---the Mexican Baja Cartel wants in, and saying no is unacceptable. When they refuse to back down, the cartel kidnaps Ophelia, the boys' playmate and confidante.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was reasonably engaging and "page-turner". I just don't think it offered any insight whatsoever into the cartel/US drug game. Never really cracked the surface and focused too much on sex.
    The narrator did just fine I only think the material was "nothing special"
