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....

    "Great book, reading was meh"

    My only complaint is the reader gives everyone speech impediments rather than doing different voices. It makes some powerful and sly men sound simple minded

    "Where the story unfolds"

    This is where the old players are replaced by the true players and where the world of ice and fire really open up magic-wise

    "Still Getting Better & Better!!!! AMAZING!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, Yes & Yes! If your not a huge fan of politics or dialogue then you may not like these books. Also the story doesn't move a long like Lord of The Rings or The Hobbit does. You have to listen to what they are talking about and kind of figure it out in your head. I really enjoy this kind of writing but I know some people find it hard.


    Which character – as performed by Roy Dotrice – was your favorite?

    Tyrion, Arya, Samwell, & to be honest. ALL OF THEM!!! Roy Dotrice is amazing! He needs to read every book out there! :)


    Any additional comments?

    I have watched every episode of the HBO series and it does not do the books justice in my opinion. I watched the series 1st and read the books 2nd. The books are AMAZING!! This is how I do it. I have all the Game of Thrones books at home. I read when I can and I listen when I can't or don't want to. Either way I am always plugging through this Epic Story! Roy Dotrice is the best narrator out there and is right up there with Robert Inglis. If you like the show you NEED to read or listen to the books. I would listen/read. You can't beat Robert Inglis voices. They are so well done! It's hard to put this down.

    "Most eventful book yet. Well worth the 47 hour"

    All of these books are very long and I started listening to these audio copies with hopes to enhance the tv series which I watched first. This book encompasses plots from the second through the fourth tv seasons and doesn't disappoint with graphic detail. For the those who are content with the the tv series and don't wish to delve deeper into GOT lore; it may be tough to sit through these long reads. I listen while I'm running long distance and they have only boosted my passion for both the tv series and the book.

    "Full of Mega Twists!"

    Story is 5 star, full of mega twists! Giving any more details would spoil it for the newcomers. The narration is good as usual. The only irritant for me was the weak consistency of voices of some characters towards the later portions of the book.
