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 FEAST FOR CROWS is the fourth volume in the series.
The Lannisters are in power on the Iron Throne.
The war in the Seven Kingdoms has burned itself out, but in its bitter aftermath new conflicts spark to life. The Martells of Dorne and the Starks of Winterfell seek vengeance for their dead. Euron Crow s Eye, as black a pirate as ever raised a sail, returns from the smoking ruins of Valyria to claim the Iron Isles.
From the icy north, where Others threaten the Wall, apprentice Maester Samwell Tarly brings a mysterious babe in arms to the Citadel. As plots, intrigue and battle threaten to engulf Westeros, victory will go to the men and women possessed of the coldest steel and the coldest hearts.

"Of those who work in the grand epic-fantasy tradition, Martin is by far the best.... [He] is a tense, surging, insomnia-inflicting plotter and a deft and inexhaustible sketcher of personalities.... This is as good a time as any to proclaim him the American Tolkien." Time Magazine "The only fantast series I'd put on a level with J.R.R. Tolkein's The Lord of the Rings . It's a fantasy series for hip, smart people, even those who don't read fantasy . If you're new to the series, you must begin with Book 1, A Game of Thrones. Once you're hooked . you'll be like the rest of us fans, gnawing your knuckles until book 5 Marta Salij, Detroit Free Press THE MOST impressive modern fantasy, both in terms of conception and execution, is George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire. A masterpiece that will be mentioned with the great works of fantasy.
