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)

    "Clash of Kings"

    I like that the reader engages the audience and uses varied voices. This is tricky at times, due to accents, to hear words used. Also, if you're a fan of GOT, this guy BUTCHERS some key character names as well as places/phrases. I'd like Audible to have the readers reference the material, it's jarring to hear Petyr (Peter) pronounced as Pe-tire. Reader does an outstanding job building drama and adding inflection where needed to aid in plot development.

    "Better and better"

    Each book is better than the one before. GRRM is the king of character development. Also cannot say enough about Roy Dotrice and his ability to bring characters to life. An all around mesmerizing tale.

    "Great story, weird impressions of the people."

    The guy's impressions are pretty funny and a bit terrible. Overall not to bad, just a bit distracting. Tyrion's voice is hilarious.
