In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

I am a huge GoT fan, so I decided to give the books a try. Maybe I am just used to the characters on the show, but the narrator in this story seems to have a tendency to make strong characters sound like illiterate pansies.
