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)

    "Very listenable narration"

    Already loved the book...pleasantly surprised by the narration. Some audiobooks are terribly read, this isn't one of them.

    "the Sword of Light "

    Jon has the best story. I use to think he was Azor Ahai, but now I think he is Lightbringer.

    "Great book"

    This series blows me away. The level of writing and character development makes it a real treat to read even though I have seen the TV show. The narrator is phenomenal as well

    "AMAZING!!!"

    Roy Dotrice Brings Martin's characters alive with unparalleled poise and energy! After reading the series, then watching the show, I find that I prefer this iteration of the world of Westros above all others!

    "The book is okay"

    The narration would have been rewarded with five golden stars, had there been more character distinction

    "Never turn your back to Your enemies"

    Once again you have to really get used to the narrator. This book is even more epic than the first and I'm always skeptical about follow ups. Great bloody epic.
