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....

    What did you love best about A Storm of Swords?

    I love the way after each chapter the surge leaves a cliff hanger. The reader really cares about this story with his voices and sounds to help guide you threw and visually see everything. I follow along at work and threwout the story I will scream or cry and my co workers think I'm nuts.

    Story
    "Favorite Installment so far"

    In the past couple months I've listened to the first three books in A Song of Ice and Fire. I've enjoyed all of them and intend to continue the series. But this book was a clear favorite, starting strong and only getting better as it went along. I've watched five seasons of Game of Thrones as well, and the differences, whether subtle or pronounced, are a big part of what made this book so enjoyable. The development of the plot and divergence from what the show was able to include made this book, and especially it's second half, a riveting read. Not many books can approach fifty hours and still have the reader/listener immediately wanting to pick up the next in the series without pause.

    "Good job Roy, awesome story."

    this is by far the best series of books I have ever read, or listened to in this case. and Roy does an amazing job with his voice to separate the characters.
