Publisher's Summary

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.

It is a tale in which brother plots against brother and the dead rise to walk in the night. Here a princess masquerades as an orphan boy; a knight of the mind prepares a poison for a treacherous sorceress; and wild men descend from the Mountains of the Moon to ravage the countryside. Against a backdrop of incest and fratricide, alchemy and murder, victory may go to the men and women possessed of the coldest steel...and the coldest hearts. For when kings clash, the whole land trembles.

©1999 George R.R. Martin; (P)2004 Books on Tape, Inc.

What the Critics Say

  • Locus Award, 1999

"A truly epic fantasy....The novel is notable particularly for the lived-in quality of its world, created through abundant detail...for the comparatively modest role of magic...and for its magnificent action-filled climax....[Martin] provides a banquet for fantasy lovers with large appetites." (Publishers Weekly)
"Fans of epic fantasy should appreciate this lavishly detailed sequel to A Game of Thrones." (Library Journal)
"Dotrice's range of vocal tones, from gravelly and commanding to silkenly dangerous, creates a mood of insistence that holds the listener captive throughout the epic story." (AudioFile)
"Grabs hold and won't let go. It's brilliant." (Robert Jordan)

    "Good book. OK narration."

    The book and series are excellent. I'm not a big fan of the narrator or his style.

    "Great Novel...narration is distracting"
    What did you love best about A Clash of Kings?

    Turning off the narration and just reading the book.


    What other book might you compare A Clash of Kings to and why?

    The entire series is great.. can't wait until the series is completed.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Roy Dotrice’s performances?

    Nope. If the book was just read straight, then Roy Dotrice would be fine. It's when he attempts voices in the dialogue that kills you! Most of the voices are so mumbled and forced that I have a hard time understanding him. It also doesn't help that I have watched Game of Thrones and I know what the characters sound like in my head. Mr. Dotrice's interpretation is so poor that when multiple characters are "speaking", I cannot discern them .

    "This is 👍"

    I must say that this is one good book! The marathon is fantastic! I don't like that the name of characters I. e.the title of a chapter is read at the end of the previous chapter. Other than that its excellent!

    "didn't think I would like but I did."

    At first I thought I wasn't going to like it because there is nothing like READING a book, but this was great. it gave me a better view/perspective on the story and I was able to understand it better as well as get other things done while I listened.

    Love Roy's voice and the different voices of all the characters. Love the book. Great description in George R.R. Martin's writing. Roy brings the story to life.

    "Good but not great"

    It felt like a lot of build up with very little pay off. A lot of things happened but when the story ends you don't feel like anything was done.
