Now, from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns. Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war. It is a tale in which brother plots against brother and the dead rise to walk in the night. Here a princess masquerades as an orphan boy; a knight of the mind prepares a poison for a treacherous sorceress; and wild men descend from the Mountains of the Moon to ravage the countryside. 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. For when kings clash, the whole land trembles.Here is the second volume in George R.R. Martin magnificent cycle of novels that includes A Game of Thrones and A Storm of Swords.

Kept me on the edge of my seat even more than the first book. The Starks are more scattered than ever. I truly hope they all find their way back to each other. And I really hope Sansa kills Joff!

The epic tale for the conquest of the seven kingdoms. The Stark children have seperated to different corners of the kingdoms. Each is maturing in the role they will play in the future. Allegiances shift and change and the kingdom is ruled by a petulant, vicious cry baby that nobody likes.

A great, super epic fantasy story. The books are a million times better than the show.

Un poco más lento que "A Game of Thrones", pero una vez más estoy asombrado de la capacidad de Martin tanto de tejer una intricada telaraña de personajes y construir una mitología orgánica y verdadera.


A bit slower than "AGOT", but once more, Martin astonishes me with his capacity for both weaving an intricate web of characters and building an organic and truthful mythology.
