The fifth volume in the greatest epic work of the modern age

Publisher Description

The fifth volume in the greatest epic work of the modern age The future of the Seven Kingdoms hangs in the balance. In the east, Daenerys, last scion of House Targaryen, her dragons grown to terrifying maturity, rules as queen of a city built on dust and death, beset by enemies. Now that her whereabouts are known many are seeking Daenerys and her dragons. Among them the dwarf, Tyrion Lannister, who has escaped King's Landing with a price on his head, wrongfully condemned to death for the murder of his nephew, King Joffrey. But not before killing his hated father, Lord Tywin. To the north lies the great Wall of ice and stone — a structure only as strong as those guarding it. Eddard Stark's bastard son Jon Snow has been elected the 998th Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, but he has enemies both in the Watch and beyond the Wall, where the wildling armies are massing for an assault. On all sides bitter conflicts are reigniting, played out by a grand cast of outlaws and priests, soldiers and skinchangers, nobles and slaves. The tides of destiny will inevitably lead to the greatest dance of all!

'In the grand epic fantasy tradition, Martin is by far the best ! tense, surging, insomnia-inflicting' Time Magazine 'An absorbing, exciting read ! Martin's style is so vivid that you will be hooked within a few pages' The Times '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 '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 'Truly epic ! with its magnificent action-filled climax, it provides a banquet for fantasy lovers with large appetites.' Publishers Weekly 'Such a splendid tale. I read my eyes out — I couldn't stop till I'd finished and it was dawn.' Anne McCaffrey 'A Song of Ice and Fire offers the rich tapestry that the very best fantasy demands: iron and steel within the silk, grandeur within the wonder, and characters torn between deep love and loyalty. Few created worlds are as imaginative and diverse.' Janny Wurts 'George Martin is assuredly a new master craftsman in the guild of heroic fantasy.' Katharine Kerr 'A dazzling fantasy adventure !' Julian May
