A Clash of Kings, Paperback
4 out of 5 (8 ratings)


HBO's hit series A GAME OF THRONES is based on George R R Martin's internationally bestselling series A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE, the greatest fantasy epic of the modern age.

A CLASH OF KINGS is the second volume in the series. 'Nobody does fantasy quite like Martin' Sunday Times Throughout Westeros, the cold winds are rising.

From the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding lands of Winterfell, chaos reigns as pretenders to the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms stake their claims through tempest, turmoil and war.

As a prophecy of doom cuts across the sky - a comet the colour of blood and flame - five factions struggle for control of a divided land.

Brother plots against brother and the dead rise to walk in the night.

Against a backdrop of incest, fratricide, alchemy and murder, the price of glory is measured in blood.

Engaging, brilliant, one hopes he can keep it up.

An epic story continues. Turning and twisting and living a life of its own. George keeps you on the edge as power shifts in a heartbeat. It is a long time I have read something this unpredictable... And I'm loving it.

A Clash of Kings picks up exactly where A Game of Thrones left off, as a thrilling fantasy novel with many an interesting characters and story line. However I felt this book was let down slightly by some characters whose stories weren't that enthralling such as Catelyn Stark and Daenerys. Overall though it is still a fantastic book which has left my itching for the next instalment.

Like the first book I started reading and wasn't too sure, sometimes I think the writing is going to be too simplistic and the story too straightforward. There is a lot going on here however and it has been fitted togeher very well. The story maintains a stately pace and sometimes takes interesting twists and unexpected turns. This is definitely superior fantasy writing here and well worth the huge amount of time you do have to invest in these gargantuan novels. The big question is, do I invest in the blu-ray tv series box sets?
