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....

    "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.

    "Devilish plot twists, roaring good time!"

    It's hard to pick the story line that's my favorite, but I have to lean towards both Daenerys and Jon Snow. Brilliant story!

    "Good stuff!"

    Roy Dotrice is Amazing! I think I was happiest when Geoffrey finally got his or maybe when Danearius liberated Astapor (don't know if spelling is correct). This is quite a story!!!

    "Yawn"

    I've tried to slog through this. Friends have said, just hold on - it get's good again. I will, but also, personally, I do not care for the slurpy voiced narration of Roy Dotrice. I know many people like his performance, but it makes me a bit queasy. I wish there were another choice. Have decided to actually read the remaining books and not listen.

    I could not turn this book off. I got so into the story and was so sad that it finished. Time to get the next one!
