Book Description

Bloodthirsty, treacherous and cunning, the Lannisters are in power on the Iron Throne in the name of the boy-king Tommen. But fear and deceit are in the air: their enemies are poised to strike.

The Martells of Dorne seek vengeance for their dead, and the heir of King Balon of the Iron Isles, Euron Crow's Eye, is as black a pirate as ever raised a sail.

Across the war-torn landscape of the Seven Kingdoms, Brienne the Beauty (thus named in mockery of her great size and strength) seeks for Sansa Stark, having vowed to protect Sansa from the wrath of Queen Cersei, Tommen's power-hungry mother.

Meanwhile apprentice Maester Samwell Tarly brings a mysterious babe in arms south to the Citadel from the cruel frozen north where the sinister Others threaten the Wall...

A Feast for Crows brings to life dark magic, complex political intrigue and horrific bloodshed. Against a backdrop of incest and fratricide, alchemy and murder, victory may go to the men and women possessed of the coldest steel... and the coldest hearts.

    Comments about A Feast for Crows:

    This series speaks for itself. if you're a fan of the TV series, then you'll love the books, and vise-versa. The build up to unexpected events, the twists and turns, they all make for exciting reading. The only reason i've put his book down is due to the fact that I have to go to work 6 days of the week, otherwise i'd sit and read it until it was finished.

    Service and delivery comments:

    I was eager to read this book, and was dubious about ordering online (due to the fact that i wanted to start reading straight after finishing the last) as I figured id have to wait a while before the book was delivered. It turns out however, my book arrived a couple of days after ordering, and all was well. I've used booktopia a few times and have always been pleased with the service and speedy delivery. I have them on my internet speed dial, first point of call when book hunting.

    Thanks guys

      It's a complicated book, but that's because it's a complicated story. It will take a while to read, but it's totally worth it, along with the rest of the series.

      Service and delivery comments:

      As always Booktopia delivered quickly and the book was in great condition. I will never buy books elsewhere again.

        Comments about A Feast for Crows:

        While the story continues on, at times the never ceasing darkness can get tiresome. You can get sick of Martin killing off his main characters, though some of their replacements are fantastic and welcome additions. This novel does seem to have a few lulls compared to the rest of the series though all in all still a fantastic read.

            A great series of books, with a colourful range of characters. I like the fact that the author changes his lead characters, ensuring the storyline is never drawn out or dull.

            'Of those who work in the grand epic fantasy tradition, Martin is by far the best' Time Magazine

            'Colossal, staggering... Martin captures all the intoxicating complexity of the Wars of the Roses or Imperial Rome' SFX '

            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

            George R. R. Martin

            George R.R. Martin was born September 20, 1948 in Bayonne, New Jersey. His father was Raymond Collins Martin, a longshoreman, and his mother was Margaret Brady Martin. He has two sisters, Darleen Martin Lapinski and Janet Martin Patten.

            Martin attended Mary Jane Donohoe School and Marist High School. He began writing very young, selling monster stories to other neighborhood children for pennies, dramatic readings included. Later he became a comic book fan and collector in high school, and began to write fiction for comic fanzines (amateur fan magazines). Martin's first professional sale was made in 1970 at age 21: "The Hero," sold to Galaxy, published in February, 1971 issue. Other sales followed.

            In 1970 Martin received a B.S. in Journalism from Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois, graduating summa cum laude. He went on to complete a M.S. in Journalism in 1971, also from Northwestern.

            As a conscientious objector, Martin did alternative service 1972-1974 with VISTA, attached to Cook County Legal Assistance Foundation. He also directed chess tournaments for the Continental Chess Association from 1973-1976, and was a Journalism instructor at Clarke College, Dubuque, Iowa, from 1976-1978. He wrote part-time throughout the 1970s while working as a VISTA Volunteer, chess director, and teacher.

            In 1975 he married Gale Burnick. They divorced in 1979, with no children. Martin became a full-time writer in 1979. He was writer-in-residence at Clarke College from 1978-79.

            Moving on to Hollywood, Martin signed on as a story editor for Twilight Zone at CBS Television in 1986. In 1987 Martin became an Executive Story Consultant for Beauty and the Beast at CBS. In 1988 he became a Producer for Beauty and the Beast, then in 1989 moved up to Co-Supervising Producer. He was Executive Producer for Doorways, a pilot which he wrote for Columbia Pictures Television, which was filmed during 1992-93.
