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. George R.R. Martin's A Song Of Ice And Fire series has set the benchmark for contemporary epic fantasy. Labelled by Time magazine as one of the top 100 most influential people in the world, Martin has conjured a world as complex and vibrant as that of J.R.R. Tolkien, populated by a huge cast of fascinating, complex characters, and boasting a history that stretches back twelve thousand years.

Three great storylines weave through the books, charting the civil war for control of the Seven Kingdoms; the defence of the towering Wall of ice in the uttermost north against the unearthly threat of the Others; and across the Narrow Sea the rise to power of Daenerys Targaryen and the last live dragons in the world.

Seasons one and two of the HBO adaption of A Game of Thrones aired world-wide to critical acclaim.

The box set includes:
A Game of Thrones
A Clash of Kings
A Storm of Swords, 1: Steel and Snow
A Storm of Swords, 2: Blood and Gold
A Feast for Crows
A Dance with Dragons, 1: Dreams and Dust
A Dance with Dragons, 2: After the Feast

About the Author

George R.R. Martin is the author of fourteen novels, including five volumes of A Song Of Ice And Fire, several collections of short stories and numerous screen plays for television drama and feature films. He lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

      Perfect for fans of the book and tv series, this convenient box set works out cheaper than buying the books separately, and allows you to keep reading continuously since you have all the books you need.

      It also comes with a map of Westeros which is a cool little bonus!

            A brilliant read. The most original story i have read in a long time. Before you watch the show, read the books that inspired the TV series! However I wouldn't recommend to young readers, does contain adult themes.

                    After watching this series on TV. I needed to know what was going to happen next and couldn't wait years and years to see. So I bought the series. I love it. I like how the series is very true to the book. They are big thick books but well worth the read. I dread coming to the end!!!!

                        I've been watching the Game of Thrones Series' on TV and eagerly await Series Four to commence ..

                        My husband has read the set (so far) of books already, and says there is SO much MORE in the read. He annoyingly teases me, pretending he will reveal this or that, and tempting me with questions but no answers, so I've commenced reading book one and hope to "catch up" to date, or even overtake, the TV series episodes and put an end to hubbby's taunts for the time being!
