I really enjoyed the first two books of this series, but the third book took me completely by surprise. I absolutely could not put it down. There is a lot that happens in this book, much of it shocking; the groundwork Martin lay down in terms of character development pays off even more dividends here, because I was desperate to follow the characters through the explosive events of the book. The sheer number of storylines is also impressive, considering that Martin had to juggle them all in order to tell a coherent story. Not only is the story coherent, it is powerful, and gut-wrenching, and addictive. Don't pick this up until you have a week with nothing else to do, because it won't get done.

A Storm of Swords
This series is excellent. It is very well written and does not evoke boredom nor the tease to scan or skip ahead. Conveniently, an index of the characters is included in each book. Highly recommended by both my husband and myself.

Book received was in excellent condition, order processed quickly. Storm of Swords continues a riveting saga and I could not put it down until I finished it. I look forward to the next book ( my husband does not!).
Publishers Weekly, 2000-10-16 The third volume of the high fantasy saga that began with A Game of Thrones and continued in A Clash of Kings is one of the more rewarding examples of gigantism in contemporary fantasy. As Martin's richly imagined world slides closer to its 10-year winter, both the weather and the warfare worsen. In the north, King Joffrey of House Lannister sits uneasily on the Iron Throne. With the aid of a peasant wench, Jaime Lannister, the Kingslayer, escapes from jail in Riverrun. Jaime goes to the other youthful ruler, Robb Stark, to secure the release of Joffrey's prisoners, Robb's sisters Arya and Sansa Stark. Meanwhile, in the south, Queen Daenarys tries to assert her claim to the various thrones with an army of eunuchs, but discovers that she must choose between conquering more and ruling well what she has already taken. The complexity of characters such as Daenarys, Arya and the Kingslayer will keep readers turning even the vast number of pages contained in this volume, for the author, like Tolkien or Jordan, makes us care about their fates. Those two fantasy greats are also evoked by Martin's ability to convey such sensual experiences as the heat of wildfire, the chill of ice, the smell of the sea and the sheer gargantuan indigestibility of the medieval banquet at its most excessive. Perhaps this saga doesn't go as far beyond the previous bounds of high fantasy as some claim, but for most readers it certainly goes far enough to command their attention. (Nov.)
