Long ago, in a time forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons out of balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister and supernatural forces are massing beyond the kingdom’s protective Wall. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the land they were born to. Sweeping from a land of brutal cold to a distant summertime kingdom of epicurean plenty, here is a tale of lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and bastards, who come together in a time of grim omens.

Here an enigmatic band of warriors bear swords of no human metal; a tribe of fierce wildlings carry men off into madness; a cruel young dragon prince barters his sister to win back his throne; and a determined woman undertakes the most treacherous of journeys. Amid plots and counterplots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, the fate of the Starks, their allies, and their enemies hangs perilously in the balance, as each endeavors to win that deadliest of conflicts: the game of thrones.

I haven't seen any of the show on purpose. I knew it would be something that I would be immediately obsessed with. I also wanted to read the books, and by promising myself I could watch the show after reading, I knew I'd get to it faster. I really enjoyed this book. The main reason why this isn't ...

5.0 A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire #1)
There's nothing I can say about this book that hasn't already been said a million times over, so I'll keep this short and sweet. This starts off incredibly slow. Some might say too slow. But I'm not one of them. This is my kind of book right here. It takes it's time, slowly revealing this world an...

4.0 Review: A Game of Thrones (Song of Ice and Fire #1) by George R.R. Martin
I feel like any review that I could possibly write wouldn't do justice to the mammoth and epic read that "A Game of Thrones" turned out to be. This is just my review for the first book and no major spoilers or plot details here, just a general overview of my experience. That might be a format I do f...

5.0 Too Much Pain for Me
This book was the most painful book I ever read. If I cared an ounce for any character something horrible would befall them. There were some truly hateful bastards in this, the first in an unending series by Martin. I think the writing was top-of-the-line, the sense of place was spot on, pacing neve...
