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 middle book for the series. (Spoiler free)"

    The series is phenomenal, and it has been such a pleasure to read, listen too. There are SO MANY characters that it is sometimes hard to remember who did what, but they way Martin covers the main characters is flawless, as is the writing. This book is great arch to a larger story. So much happens to move the story along and spread each house vying for the throne throughout the kingdom. Can't recommend this highly enough.

    "Cannot recommend enough"

    Roy Dotrice gives this series so much more.. I would say his gruff voice and characters give even more richness to an already amazing series.

    "better then the second that's for sure"

    pretty damn good. George can kinda drone on with character thoughts though that aren't the least bit relevant or building to said character.
