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)

    "Brilliant"
    Would you listen to A Clash of Kings again? Why?

    Yes. I read this book a few years ago, and now I decided listen the áudio version. Even knowing the end of the story, I enjoyed each minute, each moment of this áudio.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Clash of Kings?

    For me, the entiey book is memorable. I adored the way George Martin created this world of intrigue and games of power... You never know why some alliances and betrayals happen; if the characters is working for helps someone, or to reach his on goals and beneficts. It's amazing.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I don't have a specific scene.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not at all, because this book is very long. But is a kind of book I became addicted to.


    Any additional comments?

    Tgus book is a masterpiece, but not to YA. It's Worth the credit.

    "Of course it's good"

    It feels like the show gives you deleted scenes from the book, and the show also veers from the book in regards to the way an event happened.

    "I liked it!"

    even after having seen the show, listening to this was enjoyable. the narration is very well done. if I had one complaint, it would be that a lot of the voiced used are very similar, however that seems hard to avoid since the story has like 2 million characters. at least roy dotrice doesn't do weird lady voiced the way some voice actors do-- I can't stand it when all the women in a story sound like tired drag queens

    I listen to a variety of audio books constantly in car and gym. My reviews remind me what I’ve read & are hopefully helpful to you as well.

    "LONG book and series!"

    Review of 1st two books. I have bought next two but not yet read them. I guess you get your credit's worth with these long books, but for me it's a chore to keep listening. Narration is OK, but a better narrator might make the whole book better. Story is good, but it's long an a lot of characters and things going on to keep track of. I haven't seen the show.
