Publisher's Summary

Of the five contenders for power, one is dead, another in disfavor, and still the wars rage as violently as ever, as alliances are made and broken. Joffrey, of House Lannister, sits on the Iron Throne, the uneasy ruler of the land of the Seven Kingdoms. His most bitter rival, Lord Stannis, stands defeated and disgraced, the victim of the jealous sorceress who holds him in her evil thrall. But young Robb, of House Stark, still rules the North from the fortress of Riverrun. Robb plots against his despised Lannister enemies, even as they hold his sister hostage at King's Landing, the seat of the Iron Throne. Meanwhile, making her way across a blood-drenched continent is the exiled queen, Daenerys, mistress of the only three dragons still left in the world....

But as opposing forces maneuver for the final titanic showdown, an army of barbaric wildlings arrives from the outermost line of civilization. In their vanguard is a horde of mythical Others, a supernatural army of the living dead whose animated corpses are unstoppable. As the future of the land hangs in the balance, no one will rest until the Seven Kingdoms have exploded in a veritable storm of swords....

    "I adore this story."

    I love this long complex story. Never bores me and always keeps me interested. Every character is a good listen. I always feel like I am actually there and that is a great feeling.

    "Narrator the best!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Storm of Swords to be better than the print version?

    Do not own the print edition


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    all of them


    What about Roy Dotrice’s performance did you like?

    Like the narrator for Harry Potter he really makes this story come to life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Nothing specific its a wonderfully weaved tapestry

    "stunning"
    Would you listen to A Storm of Swords again? Why?

    no, because it's so long and takes a lot of time and committment.


    What other book might you compare A Storm of Swords to and why?

    All of George RR Martins books are dark, intense and very detailed regarding battle scenes and emotional struggle.


    What about Roy Dotrice’s performance did you like?

    He was very good at individualizing the voices for each character. He made it easy to get lost in the story.

    Story
    "Maybe it's just me, So difficult to follow"

    I liked it, but had to rewind and listen to parts over.
    Difficult to connect the timeline of each character, and the differing names and different nicknames or titles some are called..

    Story
    "Please just stop singing."

    The performer's singing makes me cringe. I thought Moonboy was bad enough. But the "Bear Song" is worth fast forwarding through. Even though you miss part of Sansa's story.
