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.
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!).
