A Clash of Kings Summary

A Clash of Kings (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 2) by George R.R. Martin

Beautiful leather-bound slipcase editions of George R.R. Martins landmark epic A Song of Ice and Fire, the inspiration for the worlds most-watched television series, Game of Thrones.

The Iron Throne once united the Sunset Lands, but King Robert is dead, his widow is a traitor to his memory, and his surviving brothers are set on a path of war amongst themselves. At Kings Landing, the head of Lord Eddard Stark rots on a spike for all to see. His daughter Sansa is betrothed still to his killers son Joffrey Queen Cerseis son, though not the son of her late husband Robert. Even so, Joffrey is now a boy-king, Cersei is his regent, and war is inevitable.

In Dragonstone, Roberts brother Stannis has declared himself king, while his other brother Renly proclaims himself king at Storms End and Eddard Starks fifteen year old son Robb wears the crown of the north at Winterfell.

A comet in the night sky, red and malevolent, the colour of blood and flame, can only be an omen of murder and war. Stanniss child Princess Shireen dreams of dragons waking from stone. And a white raven has brought word from the Citadel itself, foretelling summers end. It has been the longest summer in living memory, lasting ten years, and the smallfolk say it means an even longer winter to come

The first rule of war is never give the enemy his wish. But winter will be the biggest enemy. From beyond the Wall the undead and Others clamour for freedom, and from beyond the sea the long-dead Dragon Kings daughter hatches her revenge. Robb Stark will be exceedingly lucky to reach adulthood.

This special slipcased edition is bound in gilded and embossed red leather, with gilt-edged pages, and a sewn binding with ribbon bookmark.

A Clash of Kings Reviews

A Game of Thrones grabs hold and wont let go. Its brilliant
Robert Jordan

Colossal, staggering Martin captures all the intoxicating complexity of the Wars of the Roses or Imperial Rome in his imaginary world one of the greats of fantasy literature.
SFX

An extraordinarily rich novel The book stands out from similar work by virtue of its superbly developed characters, accomplished prose and sheer bloody-mindedness.
Publishers Weekly

I read my eyes out. I couldnt stop until Id finished and it was dawn.
Anne McCaffrey

Fantasy literature has never shied away from grandeur, but 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

One of the all-time classic fantasy series, right up there with The Belgariad and The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, and, yes, with The Lord of the Rings.
The Alien Has Landed
