Read by Roy Dotrice.

Four contend for power over the Iron Throne and the Land of the Seven Kingdoms; alliances shift, and betrayal is always an option. House Lannister's head, Joffrey, rules uneasily. Joffrey's enemy, Lord Stannis, is disgraced and enthralled. Robb of House Stark still rules the North, implacable in his enmity towards his Lannister foes, even as they hold his sister hostage. And the exiled queen Daenerys, mistress of the world's last three dragons, makes her way across a blood-drenched continent. But as opposing forces maneuver for the final titanic showdown, there appears an army of barbaric wildlings, led by undead Others. The unpredictable violence of a final cataclysm is inevitable; the one certain thing is that many men will die upon many swords.

Great series

Definitely read this series. Don't be intimidated by the length of the books. You will get sucked in and finish them faster that you think. Read them before you watch the TV show. This is one of the best fantasy stories I've read.

Tolkien for our times

I've read reviews on NPR of these books and their critic calls George R.R. Martin the Tolkien of our times. I agree wholeheartedly with this assessment. Fantasy books can be drool, because there are only so many ways that you can tell the same story. Martin's books, on the other hand, are exciting and complex with a cast of characters that one becomes attached to very quickly. The narrator isn't the best, but I've listened to three of these books on tape so far, and I've gotten used to his voice. Book 3 is my favorite so far. Things are getting really exciting and the dramatic irony has intensified as characters cross each others' paths unknowingly. I am anxious to read the fourth and fifth books!!
