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 part of a fantastic series! "

    I am a huge fan of this series and is author. I've read it twice and now I just listen to it when I'm driving. Just can't get enough of this massive story.
    The narrator is a little annoying, but the writing makes up for it.

    "Great book!"

    I would recommend the book to just about anyone! Might have a bit too much killing for the younger crowd.

    I really like the narrator that was chosen for this book series. He has done very well bringing the Song of Ice and Fire to life! And all the twists and turns that Martin has... bravo, my good Sir!!

    "best way to enjoy A Storm of Swords"

    Simply better than video and better than reading the book, Roy Dotrice brings his remarkable vocal skills to produce a truly magical experience, in the ancient tradition of the story teller.

    "Hands down the best book ever..."

    "A Song of Ice and Fire" is by far my favorite series but this is hands down the best of them all.

    The political shifts of power and the way George R.R. Martin is unafraid to take chances (or kill them) with his major charactors.

    Tyrion Lanister is my all time favorite charactor in not only fantasy but in all of fiction. Tyrion's wit is spectacular.

    All of this coupled with Roy Dotrice narration makes this an amazing worth credit adventure. Must read for fans of fantasy and I will say anyone else.

    "Great product, but narration is incomplete"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Storm of Swords to be better than the print version?

    No, the narration is incomplete for several chapters.


    What other book might you compare A Storm of Swords to and why?

    Any of the other Game of Thrones series


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Overall the quality of narration is good, but the narration is incomplete at the end of many chapters.
