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)

    "Good story, bad narrator."

    the story is good enough. Martin is a good writer, after all.
    But, the narrator completely ruins the story. He had too many different voices for the reader to keep track of, and he struggled, too. And all the different voices had different accents. The voices and accents didn't always fit the characters, either.
    Another thing, the narrator also has some very weird pronounciations, that don't fit with how the words are spelled.

    Traumatic, but excellent book! Gripping, and very well read, bringing the characters to life, and make no for an excellent audiobook. Thoroughly recommended

    "Gripping"

    loved the book, I had already read the series in book format and it was just as gripping in audio. Roy's narration was a bit sketchy largely due to the changing of accents and incorrect names but still didn't take from the fabulous story it's self

    "Great Book, Horrible Narrator"

    By this point I am hooked on the GoT story. Having never watched the TV show it's great to experience them in their original forms first. My only issue continues to be Roy Dotrice and his inconsistencies. Names he was pronouncing one way in the previous books are now being said differently. See 'Arya' becoming 'Ar-ee-ah' it's very obvious he is not a fan of this series as he can't manage to keep accents consistent either. Wishing they would be re-recorded.
