Publisher's Summary

Follow the fortunes of three of the Seven Kingdom's most prestigious and powerful houses: the Baratheons, the Martells, and the Tyrells.

See how they each conquered and held the rich, fertile kingdoms of the Stormlands, Dorne, and the Reach, and just why it is that the families of Game of Thrones are eager to avenge themselves on one another. Here is the story of how Orys Baratheon founded House Baratheon through fury and the fire of dragons and how that house eventually produced the Kings Robert and Stannis of the beloved series. Why is it that House Martell hates the Lannisters and all of the other Houses fear dealing with them? How did House Tyrell come to command the richest and greatest armies of all Westeros from their lowly origins as stewards?

The second volume of Game of Thrones: A Family History has all of these answers and more!

great background info

Great info to fill in the history of Westeros and clarify the back story on so many characters and the rains they despise each other

As True a tale as any

An accurate recounting of the events of these great houses of Baratheon, Martell, and Tyrell. The reader was fine, however (and perhaps due to an accent) his pronunciation of some of the names was off or hard to understand which made it a bit harder to follow the lineages. Also I will note he could have had better break points or pauses as sometimes the words seemed to run together and I found myself replaying sections several times to make sure I heard it right.

damn it!! this is not the second book !?!

I thought this was the second book in the series. It is not it is some sort of cliff notes or something? I did not see that. Do not buy this if you think it's the second book in The Game of Thrones series
