THE BOOK BEHIND THE THIRD SEASON OF GAME OF THRONES, AN ORIGINAL SERIES NOW ON HBO. A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE: BOOK THREE Of the five contenders for power, one is dead, another in disfavor, and still the wars rage, as alliances are made and broken. Joffrey sits on the Iron Throne, the uneasy ruler of the Seven Kingdoms. His most bitter rival, Lord Stannis, stands defeated and disgraced, victim of the sorceress who holds him in her thrall. Young Robb still rules the North from the fortress of Riverrun. Meanwhile, making her way across a blood-drenched continent is the exiled queen, Daenerys, mistress of the only three dragons left in the world. And as opposing forces maneuver for the final showdown, an army of barbaric wildlings arrives from the outermost limits of civilization, accompanied by 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. “Of those who work in the grand epic-fantasy tradition, [George R. R.] Martin is by far the best. In fact . . . this is as good a time as any to proclaim him the American Tolkien.”—Time “Long live George Martin . . . a literary dervish, enthralled by complicated characters and vivid language, and bursting with the wild vision of the very best tale tellers.”—The New York Times “One of the best series in the history of fantasy.”—Los Angeles Times

It was very hard at times to pace myself and not just tear through it because I wanted - needed - to know what was going to happen next. Martin is a master storyteller and the various narratives he's...
Once again, so good. I'm not going to lie, though. The middle dragged and dragged, and I zoned in and out a lot. That ending doe... !!!!! So great. Much intense. Very GoT.
Meine Ausgabe von „A Storm of Swords“, der dritte Band der Reihe „A Song of Ice and Fire“ von George R.R. Martin, umfasst 1177 Seiten. Das gute Stück hat die Ausmaße eines soliden Ziegelsteins und ist inhaltlich so vollgepackt, dass ich beschlossen habe, meine üblichen Zeichenrichtlinien zum Schreib...
Die Intrigen steigern sich immer mehr, der Kampf um den Eisernen Thron spitzt sich weiter zu. Mord und Verrat stehen an erster Stelle. Dies spüren vor allem Robb, der König des Nordens und Joffrey Baratheon, der König über die Sieben Königslande. Sie verlassen sich auf ihre Getreuen und müssen doch ...
This review has spoilers.I am so crazy about this series. The things that are standing out the most in my mind right now are the differences in the book and show. Sansa is not set to be shipped off to Ramsay because a fake Arya is in her place so I’m wondering what is going to happen to her. Rob’...
