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.

Robb Stark wears his new-forged crown in the Kingdom of the North, but his 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.

And 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.

      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.

            This book is part of an incredible series. Whilst you would be able to pick this book up and follow the story line, I'd hightly recommend you begin at the start of this amazing series with A Game of Thrones. The storyline and charaters are so intersting and obsorbing, I couldnt put this book down. One more chapter I'd say....... 5 chapters later i was still reading. Highly recommend this book to any reader. I am not a huge fantasy fan, but this amazing detailed story takes me to Westeros.
