The second volume of A Song of Ice and Fire, the greatest fantasy epic of the modern age. GAME OF THRONES is now a major TV series from HBO, featuring a stellar cast. Throughout Westeros, the cold winds are rising. From the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding lands of Winterfell, chaos reigns as pretenders to the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms stake their claims through tempest, turmoil and war. As a prophecy of doom cuts across the sky - a comet the colour of blood and flame - five factions struggle for control of a divided land. Brother plots against brother and the dead rise to walk in the night. Against a backdrop of incest, fratricide, alchemy and murder, the price of glory is measured in blood.

Needs some serious reviewing
After I read the first volume, I decided to buy the rest of the series. How I whish I hadn't. The second volume is tiresome to read, a lot of references to the first volume (is that a new way to produce thick volumes!?). I found a lot of characters anoying. Lets put that in another perspective: To my experience the balance between anoying characters and not is lost. Which, in turn, made it hard to read. I even skipped pages at the end.

Excellent series (Game of Thrones) and this is book 2. If you enjoyed Game of Thrones, you will want to follow this series right through to the end.
