The complete, unabridged audiobook of A Storm of Swords.
HBO’s hit series A Game of Thrones is based on George R. R. Martin’s internationally best-selling series A Song of Ice and Fire, the greatest fantasy epic of the modern age. A Storm of Swords is the third volume in the series.
The Seven Kingdoms are divided by revolt and blood feud, and winter approaches like an angry beast. Beyond the Northern borders, wildlings leave their villages to gather in the ice and stone wasteland of the Frostfangs. From there, the renegade Brother Mance Rayder will lead them South towards the Wall.
The men of the Night’s Watch are ready for the coming of a great cold and the walking corpses that travel with it. But now they face a horde of wildlings 20000 strong - hungry savage people steeped in the dark magic of the haunted wilderness – poised to invade the Kingdom of the North where Robb Stark wears his new-forged crown.
But Robb’s defences are ranged against attack from the South, the land of House Stark’s enemies the Lannisters. His sisters are trapped there, dead or likely yet to die, at the whim of the Lannister boy-king Joffrey or his depraved mother Cersei, regent of the Iron Throne. Cersei’s ambition is unfettered while the dwarf Tyrion Lannister fights for his life, a victim of treachery.
And on the other side of the ocean, the last of the Targaryens rears the dragons she hatched from her husband’s funeral pyre. Daenerys Stormborn will return to the land of her birth to avenge the murder of her father, the last Dragon King on the Iron Throne.

"Colossal, staggering.... Martin captures all the intoxicating complexity of the Wars of the Roses or Imperial Rome in his imaginary world...one of the greats of fantasy literature." (SFX)
"Fantasy literature has never shied away from grandeur, but the sheer-mind-boggling scope of this epic has sent other fantasy writers away shaking their heads.... Its ambition: to construct the Twelve Caesars of fantasy fiction, with characters so venomous they could eat the Borgias." (Guardian)
There are no reviews for this title yet.
Slightly more character voices than - "West country", "Stupid Westcountry", "Female Westcountry", and "Robot Raven"
Will continue to read, but not audio.
"Gripping Story and fantastic performance"
Just amazing, so many twists and turns. Gripping from start to finish and so entertainingly read, loved it.
this has been a great book , I have enjoyed the fast action and continuity ,
The story is brilliant, addictive and so unpredictable.
The narration is clear and the pace is good but some of the voice impressions are very annoying.
I will continue buying the rest of the series anyway.
"THE GAME CONTINUES"
He brings the stroies to life,Doesnt deviate too much from the TV shows if you have already watched them as I have.Accents are different but true to the TV
All the game of thrones books are wonderful
You feel it more,does the accents
Game........THE REAL STORY
Buy them all, you wont be dissapointed
Really love the way that all the multiple story lines are interwoven but interesting in their own right. Amazing how many characters are developed and then killed off and yet you still want to read on. The shocks are real shocks.
Love this book, excellent must read one of the best books I've ever read and the narration is top notch!!
"The books are fantastic but narrator isn't right"
I've been reading these in Kindle then switched to audio for a long drive. Unfortunately, the narrator puts on a strong regional accents for many of the main characters that don't really work and change within the scene, a lot of the minor characters are high pitched and wheedly. I struggled to pay attention to the story because of it and couldn't keep listening. Very disappointing.
"Gripping to the very last chapter!"
The story continues as more characters are introduced and gifted Roy gives them each a unique voice.
"LOVE THE DWARF"
good story well told,was a hard job to leave it to another day,and it defiantly had to be left for quite a few of those,but l am not complaining
