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....

    "And yet a little less good than previous book."

    Roy still reads a good performance. The story is still moving right along, but just a bit less well written. A little bit filler. This seems to be where the tv series diverges most (to date, anyways).

    "Very good, but will be reading the last two"

    very good narration by Roy Dotrice. this made my commutes much less stressful, having something to pay attention to other than traffic. Now, given other people's reviews of Book 4 and how all of Roy's voicings and pronunciation of names change, I don't plan to buy the next ones. Time to hit the local library.

    "Great"

    Dotrice is my favorite reader so far and i have listen to approximately 15 books so far from audible. Very good voice overs and the book in general is absolutely amazing.

    "Roy Dotrice has an excellent voice for narration"

    His voices are consistent, clear, and appropriate for the characters! He very much brought the story to life. An excellent choice!

    "Better than the show."

    This is the third book in the series and it may be the best one yet. Many times the hero is safe and you can guess the outcome. But this series keeps you on your toes because no one is safe.

    The narrator does a great job. He uses the different voices so well. He also does his part to keep you interested and excited.

    "Wow, just wow."

    Just starting book 5 and I have to say this may have been my favorite of them. The one thing I hated was the red wedding. I won't ruin it for anyone but I just wish things could of turned out differently. Narration was great!

    "Fantastic"

    Great story, good narrative pace - my only complaint is that one or two of the voices were highly annoying. But not by too much, and it was a minor character.

    "Great Book"

    I really like Roy Dotrice reading of this book. He does a good job with the different voices. I like the series a lot I thought I would start them now that the tv show might encourage the ending. Otherwise I will be with millions of others waiting for the next book.
