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....

    "Excellent installment in the series."

    A very rich cast of characters, which you love to hate. This next book in the series continues the plot twists of the story. Very engrossing, and very well read.

    "Fantastic."

    Left me on edge every day I went home from work and had to turn it off. The epilogue left me at a loss for words.

    "A little gloomy but still great"

    A little gloomy but a wonderful continuation of a great series. If you've read this many of the books clearly you feel the same way and won't stop now. The imagination of this guy is nothing short of admirable

    "Captivating"

    Very descriptive and intricate storyline. Hard to stop listening to the book. As soon as you finish one you want to go onto the next one.

    "ONLY GOT BETTER"

    By the end of book three, my interest was so high I couldn't find enough time each day to listen what twists and turns would occur next. This is truly the best major book I have read sense Lord of the Rings. The dialogue is masterful.
