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.

"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)
Great performance! Great writing! Fascinating characters! I love it! I'm on to the next book in the series!
A Clash of Kings picks up where A Game of Thrones ended in a vivid action packed tale. Roy Dotrice reading brings the story to life. You will keep coming back for more Westeros
Consistent pronunciations would help, getting names right, and the narrator overacts a number of characters to the point where thery're almost impossible to understand. I do not like this narrator at all.
There were so many characters to follow in this book that I couldn't keep track who was in what family a character was from and sometimes even which character it was at all. I was hoping for Dragons and sort of got them but not like I had hoped
