Publisher's Summary

GAME OF THRONES: A NEW ORIGINAL SERIES, NOW ON HBO.

Few books have captivated the imagination and won the devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as has George R. R. Martin’s monumental epic cycle of high fantasy that began with A Game of Thrones. Now, in A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of peace . . . only to be launched on an even more terrifying course of destruction.

A Feast for Crows

It seems too good to be true. After centuries of bitter strife and fatal treachery, the seven powers dividing the land have decimated one another into an uneasy truce. Or so it appears. . . . With the death of the monstrous King Joffrey, Cersei is ruling as regent in King’s Landing. Robb Stark’s demise has broken the back of the Northern rebels, and his siblings are scattered throughout the kingdom like seeds on barren soil. Few legitimate claims to the once desperately sought Iron Throne still exist—or they are held in hands too weak or too distant to wield them effectively. The war, which raged out of control for so long, has burned itself out.

But as in the aftermath of any climactic struggle, it is not long before the survivors, outlaws, renegades, and carrion eaters start to gather, picking over the bones of the dead and fighting for the spoils of the soon-to-be dead. Now in the Seven Kingdoms, as the human crows assemble over a banquet of ashes, daring new plots and dangerous new alliances are formed, while surprising faces—some familiar, others only just appearing—are seen emerging from an ominous twilight of past struggles and chaos to take up the challenges ahead.

What the Critics Say

"Of those who work in the grand epic-fantasy tradition, Martin is by far the best.... [He] is a tense, surging, insomnia-inflicting plotter and a deft and inexhaustible sketcher of personalities.... This is as good a time as any to proclaim him the American Tolkien." (Time)

"The only fantast series I'd put on a level with J.R.R. Tolkein's The Lord of the Rings…. It's a fantasy series for hip, smart people, even those who don't read fantasy…. If you're new to the series, you must begin with Book 1, A Game of Thrones. Once you're hooked…. you'll be like the rest of us fans, gnawing your knuckles until book 5” (Marta Salij, Detroit Free Press)

“THE MOST impressive modern fantasy, both in terms of conception and execution, is George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire.… A masterpiece that will be mentioned with the great works of fantasy.” (Contra Costa Times)

    "What happened?"

    A storm of swords is without a doubt of the best fantasy books so it was expected for this one to be the same but it just felt like a really big refill a dull plot and just boring with only a couple of good moments i just hope the next book really improves

    "At first I thought the books dragged."

    The books are proving much better than the latest season (5) on TV. I truly like the characters better. Except Dany. She lost me when she imprisoned her dragons.

    "Thoroughly Enjoyed..."

    I have watched the HBO Series.
    The Book's Audio Presentation give my Imagination a thorough workout. The Orator brings life to the individual characters chapter after chapter, book after book. Five Star Book and Performance.

    "Weakest point in the series."

    This book is the weakest installment in the song of ice and fire epic. its drags a points, certain characters and plots are omitted, and its wasn't meant to be a book in its own right. GRRM wrote this book and A Dance With Dragons (book 5) as one installment, but was pressured by editing to split the book for reasons of length. once you muster through this book and read ADWD ( Or better yet, read the two concurrently) you will have a better appreciation for the story setup and what the author is trying to accomplish.

    Roy Dotrice is excellent as usual and does an awesome interpretation of the material and is a joy to listen to.

    "Shorter book, fewer point of view characters"
    Any additional comments?

    Fourth book in the series is generally slow and introduces the Dorne family and Greyjoys. I enjoyed these points of view but Sam's and Brienne's story remained my favorite. Several other pivotal characters have surprising story twists towards the end! The story ends with a lot of characters determined to head in one direction... I'm eager to read the next book in the series.

    "Another great book!"

    Although not quite as good as book 3, this book was still great! There were a few things that happened that didn't quite make sense. I think its just me trying to be logical.

    "What happened to the voices??"

    most of the voices are different. made it hard to get through the first 1/3 of the book, but eventually you get used to it.

    "Wait for it..."

    This installment of the series has a slow burn, but it builds up to some good fireworks. The narrator's voice is grating, and he overdoes the old man voice for too many characters, but still, this is my favorite series.
