A Storm of Swords

Front Cover
HarperCollins Publishers, May 18, 2017 - Seven Kingdoms (Imaginary place) - 1200 pages
Beautiful leather-bound slipcase editions of George R.R. Martin's landmark epic A Song of Ice and Fire, the inspiration for the world's most-watched television series, Game of Thrones. The Seven Kingdoms are divided by revolt and blood feud, and winter approaches like an angry beast. Beyond the Northern borders, wildlings leave their villages to gather in the ice and stone wasteland of the Frostfangs. From there, the renegade Brother Mance Rayder will lead them South towards the Wall. The men of the Night's Watch are ready for the coming of a great cold and the walking corpses that travel with it. But now they face a horde of wildlings twenty-thousand strong - hungry savage people steeped in the dark magic of the haunted wilderness - poised to invade the Kingdom of the North where Robb Stark wears his new-forged crown. But Robb's defences are ranged against attack from the South, the land of House Stark's enemies the Lannisters. His sisters are trapped there, dead or likely yet to die, at the whim of the Lannister boy-king Joffrey or his depraved mother Cersei, regent of the Iron Throne. Cersei's ambition is unfettered while the dwarf Tyrion Lannister fights for his life, a victim of treachery. And on the other side of the ocean, the last of the Targaryens rears the dragons she hatched from her husband's funeral pyre. Daenerys Stormborn will return to the land of her birth to avenge the murder of her father, the last Dragon King on the Iron Throne. This special slipcased edition is bound in gilded and embossed red leather, with gilt-edged pages, and a sewn binding with ribbon bookmark.

Book 3 of Song of Ice and Fire is just as good as the first two. Maybe even a bit more exciting. The war between the 5 kings continues. Joffrey Baratheon is still in power, with Robb Stark and Stannis ... Read full review
