In this, the 3rd book of the Game of Thrones series, the war continues between Stannis Baratheon, King Joffrey Lannister, and the new king of the North, Robb Stark. But be prepared for many twists and turns as treachery prevails and author Martin holds nothing back. Queen Daenerys Targaryen and her dragons are preparing to enter the fray and meanwhile dark forces behind the wall are bringing winter and unleashing an evil army. In spite of it’s massive size, it’s a page-turner that will make you howl with disbelief and cheer when justice appears to prevail. This was the best book yet.
