"If the Oscars were based on books, this would win Best-Film"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The only fantasy novel I that I describe as “great”. I normally don't read fantasy novels but when a friend recommended it to me she said I wouldn't be disappointed so I bought it. She wasn't wrong.

Suspenseful, shocking and exhilarating are only a few words that describe it. I don't want to write anymore about it otherwise I'll ruin it.

If you are a fan of the show and havent yet read the books then I highly recommend that you do. Very true to the show and a great read. Just about to go on to the third installment.

"Amazing"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Loved this book so much, had just started watching the TV series after my friends told me how good it was. After a bout a season and a half in I bought the first two books and finished them in about a week. George R.R. Martin is amazing. Great price and great shipping as per usual Mighty Ape!!

Bought this for my brother & he couldn't put the book down. Now he wants to purchase the rest of the books. Recommend you read the books before watching the tv series if you do.

"Brilliant read"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

George Martin continues showing how brilliant he is at capturing my imagination. Brilliant brilliant book. Delivery was (as always) incredibly fast.

"It is AWESOME !!!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is a really good book, ive read the first one and was really excited to find this one on this site, its a really good book and I would encourage everyone to read it. There are many twists and turns and I just think that you should read the first book, a Game of Thrones before you read this one as it could get confusing and you miss some really good books. This is not your average fantasy book and is worth reading time and time again. Get it, I guarantee you'll love it :)

MightyApe is great with a quick delivery time, making the book even better as you get to read it quicker and dont have to wait long to read it :)

Description

George R. R. Martin's superb fantasy epic continues in consummate style as bloodshed and alchemy lay waste the Seven Kingdoms in the second volume of A Song of Ice and Fire.

The Iron Throne once united the Sunset Lands, but King Robert is dead, his widow is a traitor to his memory, and his surviving brothers are set on a path of war amongst themselves. At King's Landing, the head of Lord Eddard Stark rots on a spike for all to see. His daughter Sansa is betrothed still to his killer's son Joffrey – Queen Cersei's son, though not the son of her late husband Robert. Even so, Joffrey is now a boy-king, Cersei is his regent, and war is inevitable. In Dragonstone, Robert's brother Stannis has declared himself king, while his other brother Renly proclaims himself king at Storm's End – and Eddard Stark's fifteen year old son Robb wears the crown of the north at Winterfell.

A comet in the night sky, red and malevolent, the colour of blood and flame, can only be an omen of murder and war. Stannis's child Princess Shireen dreams of dragons waking from stone. And a white raven has brought word from the Citadel itself, foretelling summer's end. It has been the longest summer in living memory, lasting ten years, and the smallfolk say it means an even longer winter to come…The first rule of war is never give the enemy his wish. But winter will be the biggest enemy. From beyond the Wall the undead and Others clamour for freedom, and from beyond the sea the long-dead Dragon King's daughter hatches her revenge. Robb Stark will be exceedingly lucky to reach adulthood.

Locus Award Winner 1999.

Reviews for Song of Ice & Fire series

‘In the grand epic fantasy tradition, Martin is by far the best. Tense, surging, insomnia-inflicting.’ Time Magazine

‘Destined to be one of the greatest fantasy series ever written.’ Denver Post

‘Truly epic! With its magnificent action-filled climax, it provides a banquet for fantasy lovers with large appetites.’ Publishers Weekly

‘I always expect the best from George R.R. Martin and he always delivers. A Game of Thrones grabs hold and won't let go. It's brilliant.’ Robert Jordan

‘George R.R. Martin is one of our very best writers, and this is one of his very best books.’ Raymond E. Feist

‘Colossal, staggering! Martin captures all the intoxicating complexity of the Wars of the Roses or Imperial Rome in his imaginary world ! The writing is always powerful.’ 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

‘Such a splendid tale. I read my eyes out – I couldn't stop till I'd finished and it was dawn’ Anne McCaffrey

‘A Game of Thrones offers the rich tapestry that the very best fantasy demands: iron and steel within the silk, grandeur within the wonder, and charactrs torn between deep love and loyalty. Few created worlds are as imaginative and diverse.’ Janny Wurts
