Synopsis

THE BOOK BEHIND THE THIRD SEASON OF GAME OF THRONES, AN ORIGINAL SERIES NOW ON HBO.

Here is the third volume in George R. R. Martin’s magnificent cycle of novels that includes A Game of Thrones and A Clash of Kings. As a whole, this series comprises a genuine masterpiece of modern fantasy, bringing together the best the genre has to offer. Magic, mystery, intrigue, romance, and adventure fill these pages and transport us to a world unlike any we have ever experienced. Already hailed as a classic, George R. R. Martin’s stunning series is destined to stand as one of the great achievements of imaginative fiction.

A STORM OF SWORDS

Of the five contenders for power, one is dead, another in disfavor, and still the wars rage as violently as ever, as alliances are made and broken. Joffrey, of House Lannister, sits on the Iron Throne, the uneasy ruler of the land of the Seven Kingdoms. His most bitter rival, Lord Stannis, stands defeated and disgraced, the victim of the jealous sorceress who holds him in her evil thrall. But young Robb, of House Stark, still rules the North from the fortress of Riverrun. Robb plots against his despised Lannister enemies, even as they hold his sister hostage at King’s Landing, the seat of the Iron Throne. Meanwhile, making her way across a blood-drenched continent is the exiled queen, Daenerys, mistress of the only three dragons still left in the world. . . .

But as opposing forces maneuver for the final titanic showdown, an army of barbaric wildlings arrives from the outermost line of civilization. In their vanguard is a horde of mythical Others--a supernatural army of the living dead whose animated corpses are unstoppable. As the future of the land hangs in the balance, no one will rest until the Seven Kingdoms have exploded in a veritable storm of swords. . . .

Literary masterpiece
June 25th, 2015
This book continues the masterpiece which is a song of Ice and Fire. The depth of the stories, the sheer number of characters, all of which are real people with failings and flaws, yet are capable of heroic deeds. This is the greatest story of our time.

I'm gonna spoil every episode of the new season now. This is the best book in the series so far, but too little of Arya.

A Storm of Swords

I'm loving this series - lots of surprises, like about 5 great stories all happening at the same time....at least. The plot lines weave together, characters continue to evolve and deepen. It's like nothing I've ever read before.

Best Book So Far
January 17th, 2013
This was the longest book and I read it in a couple of days. I was really engaged all the way through. A lot of things come together nicely. Martin does a good job of moving the story along as well as vividly describing everything in such detail. From what characters are thinking and why. Real human responses. To the setting of a chapter. I can't wait to start the next book.
