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....

    "Brilliant."

    ...No surprise though. The performance reaches the level of the story itself--a formidable feat. On to the next installment. My only regret is that I'm going to be caught up before the final volume is released...

    "Loved the story. It was fantastic to listen to."

    Loved the story. Some of the character voices sounded similar. I was poisoned a bit to the voices by the HBO rendering, But it was still fantastic to hear.

    "Twist and parry!"

    Excellent book that has many surprises. Be prepared to lose some of your favorites. Much richer than the screenplay.

    The voices that the reader uses to portray each character is amazing to say the least!

    "Good story but watered down."

    Could have cut a few hours of useless background and song out, may-haps there was some literary stuff behind it but it's lost to me. Awesome performance as always.

    "Best in the series"

    This is my favorite of the series so far and is action packed from start to finish. Coupled with GRRM's beautiful writing, this book is a masterpiece.
