Publisher Description

Perfect for fans of the epic fantasy series that inspired HBO’s Game of Thrones - a gorgeous boxed set featuring conveniently sized leather-cloth-bound editions of the first five novels!

An immersive entertainment experience unlike any other, A Song of Ice and Fire has earned George R. R. Martin - dubbed "the American Tolkien" by Time magazine - international acclaim and millions of loyal readers. Now the monumental saga gets the royal treatment it deserves, with each book wrapped in bound leather-cloth covers and packaged together in an elegant display case. This one-of-a-kind boxed set includes:

  • A GAME OF THRONES
  • A CLASH OF KINGS
  • A STORM OF SWORDS
  • A FEAST FOR CROWS
  • A DANCE WITH DRAGONS

Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King’s Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert’s name. There his family dwells in peace and comfort: his proud wife, Catelyn; his sons Robb, Brandon, and Rickon; his daughters Sansa and Arya; and his bastard son, Jon Snow. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse - unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season.

Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances. Now Robert is riding north to Winterfell, bringing his queen, the lovely but cold Cersei, his son, the cruel, vainglorious Prince Joffrey, and the queen’s brothers Jaime and Tyrion of the powerful and wealthy House Lannister - the first a swordsman without equal, the second a dwarf whose stunted stature belies a brilliant mind. All are heading for Winterfell and a fateful encounter that will change the course of kingdoms.

Meanwhile, across the Narrow Sea, Prince Viserys, heir of the fallen House Targaryen, which once ruled all of Westeros, schemes to reclaim the throne with an army of barbarian Dothraki - whose loyalty he will purchase in the only coin left to him: his beautiful yet innocent sister, Daenerys.

Review Quote

Praise for George R. R. Martin and A Song of Ice and Fire One of the best series in the history of fantasy. "Los Angeles Times" Long live George Martin . . . a literary dervish, enthralled by complicated characters and vivid language, and bursting with the wild vision of the very best tale tellers. " The New York Times" The only fantasy series I d put on a level with J.R.R. Tolkien s The Lord of the Rings . . . It s a fantasy series for hip, smart people, even those who don t read fantasy. "Chicago Tribune" Martin amply fulfills the first volume s promise and continues what seems destined to be one of the best fantasy series ever written. "The Denver Post"," "on "A Clash of Kings" Martin has produced is producing, since the series isn t over the great fantasy epic of our era. It s an epic for a more profane, more jaded, more ambivalent age than the one Tolkien lived in. Lev Grossman, "Time" Addictive . . . George R. R. Martin has created the unlikely genre of the realpolitik fantasy novel. "Rolling Stone"," "on "A Feast for Crows" Epic fantasy as it should be written: passionate, compelling, convincingly detailed and thoroughly imagined. "The Washington Post"," "on "A Dance with Dragons" "" I always expect the best from George R. R. Martin, and he always delivers. Robert Jordan"
