Publisher's Summary

The complete, unabridged audiobook of A Storm of Swords.

HBO’s hit series A Game of Thrones is based on George R. R. Martin’s internationally best-selling series A Song of Ice and Fire, the greatest fantasy epic of the modern age. A Storm of Swords is the third volume in the series.

The Seven Kingdoms are divided by revolt and blood feud, and winter approaches like an angry beast. Beyond the Northern borders, wildlings leave their villages to gather in the ice and stone wasteland of the Frostfangs. From there, the renegade Brother Mance Rayder will lead them South towards the Wall.

The men of the Night’s Watch are ready for the coming of a great cold and the walking corpses that travel with it. But now they face a horde of wildlings 20000 strong - hungry savage people steeped in the dark magic of the haunted wilderness – poised to invade the Kingdom of the North where Robb Stark wears his new-forged crown.

But Robb’s defences are ranged against attack from the South, the land of House Stark’s enemies the Lannisters. His sisters are trapped there, dead or likely yet to die, at the whim of the Lannister boy-king Joffrey or his depraved mother Cersei, regent of the Iron Throne. Cersei’s ambition is unfettered while the dwarf Tyrion Lannister fights for his life, a victim of treachery.

And on the other side of the ocean, the last of the Targaryens rears the dragons she hatched from her husband’s funeral pyre. Daenerys Stormborn will return to the land of her birth to avenge the murder of her father, the last Dragon King on the Iron Throne.

What the Critics Say

"Colossal, staggering.... Martin captures all the intoxicating complexity of the Wars of the Roses or Imperial Rome in his imaginary world...one of the greats of fantasy literature." (SFX)

"Fantasy literature has never shied away from grandeur, but the sheer-mind-boggling scope of this epic has sent other fantasy writers away shaking their heads.... Its ambition: to construct the Twelve Caesars of fantasy fiction, with characters so venomous they could eat the Borgias." (Guardian)

    "A fine third installment."

    Book 3 of "A Song of Ice and Fire" is certainly no let down in this classic series. Martin again produces the goods here with probably more shocks and twists than either of the first 2 novels.
    I am finally getting used to Roy Dotrice's narration and while, with the greatest respect to the man, I still don't think he is the best at what he does, he produces his strongest performance to date with an ever increasing cast of characters.
    For those of you like myself who came to the books via the HBO television show, book 3 is really where the books and the show start to take different paths.
    Please note, slight spoiler's for this next part. As a fan / watcher of the TV show first I felt the show actually did a better job of the 'Red Wedding' than even the book does, but the 'Battle at the Wall' is expanded upon and is even better for it. Also, you will also find book 3 fills in many gaps the show simply does not have time or budget for.
    In summary, another excellent tale that i hope will surprise, scare and entertain you all in equal measure.

    "Best one so far!"

    Brilliant story.

    Narration starts off a little rusty, some characters were confused or very similar but this soon passes and the story more than makes up for it all.

    "The narrator's voice hurts my ears."

    This was frustrating to say the least. As much fun and intriguing the story was.. The guy's voice hurt my ears real bad. It's was often annoying and at times unbearable esp when he tried accents and the worst being when he sang... Ughhhh!!!

    "Roy Dotrice is brilliant"

    Roy Dotrice is perfect for narrating this story. He portrays every character perfectly. I couldn't imagine anyone else doing it. And for a storyline this epic it needed someone who could pull it off, and he does.

    "Love It"

    When I first heard Roy Dotrice's narration of the ASOIAF books, it grated on me as on most newcomers - now after many, many re-listens his voice(s) are as much a part of Westeros for me as Winterfell and King's Landing, and I wouldn't have it any other way! Just hope Mr Dotrice can narrate the last two books, if they are likely to come in the next decade...

    Great story and good performance by the actor. Adds to The TV show with more detail and a greater supernatural element.

    Any additional comments?

    Great story and storyline but the narration is nowhere near as good as on the first three audio books. It states its the same narrator but it sounds like a different one to me. A very big shame as it was spoiled by the narrator!
