Description

HBO’s hit series A GAME OF THRONES is based on George R. R. Martin’s internationally bestselling series A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE, the greatest fantasy epic of the modern age. A GAME OF THRONES is the first volume in the series.

Summers span decades. Winter can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun.

As Warden of the north, Lord Eddard Stark counts it a curse when King Robert bestows on him the office of the Hand. His honour weighs him down at court where a true man does what he will, not what he must … and a dead enemy is a thing of beauty.

The old gods have no power in the south, Stark’s family is split and there is treachery at court. Worse, the vengeance-mad heir of the deposed Dragon King has grown to maturity in exile in the Free Cities. He claims the Iron Throne.

Reviews

‘Of those who work in the grand epic fantasy tradition, Martin is by far the best’
Time Magazine

‘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

‘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

    What happened followed the characters well, but they were boring and unrealistic aside from 2 or 3. I would say from most reviews that it was good but reading it, there was far too much nonsense that made the book carry on and be longer. A disappointing read
  • Perfect!

    This book is epic! From the start I have not been able to put it down! Love the details and how the plot thickens over time! Well done George R. R. Martin!

    In this modern day of human and computer spelling and grammar checks, I expect a better read than this. Obvious errors which have nothing to do with usage of the "old" English language; just poor editing. The numerous errors are consistent throughout series of books. Seriously, misspelling Targaryen without the T and in bold capital letters is shameful.
  • Wow.

    Wow. I'm only a bit into it, but it is pretty fantastic, I'm actually not into books at all, it has to be very VERY good to interest me, which this does. If you're a fan of the TV show I highly recommend you get it, but I'd also recommend that you get the free sample, see if you like that first. If you're a gamer, it's like Skyrim in your head and if you're a fan of the TV show - it's like the show in your head
