"A sprawling epic."
5 stars"

I couldn't put his book down once I started. Every waking moment I spent reading this book and the rest of the series. I think I spent 2 whole months reading the 4 books cover to cover and am reading them a second time till the 5th one comes out. It is unlike anything i've read before. It is unique in it's story and premise. The writing is powerful and the ending will leave you excited for more. Martin invests so much detail in each character and scene that I can easily imagine it. Each chapter is told through the eyes of one of the main characters, most of them of the stark family. But as the series progresses more and more characters are introduced.

So far so good, I hadn't seen the series before or heard anything about this book, I took a risk beacause it sounded like my kind of thing and it's an amazing read so far.

Description

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 forces are massing beyond the kingdom's protective Wall. To the south, the king's powers are failing: his most trusted advisor dead under mysterious circumstances and his enemies emerging from the shadows of the throne.

At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the frozen land they were born to. Now Lord Eddard Stark is reluctantly summoned to serve as the king's new Hand, an appointment that threatens to sunder not only his family but the kingdom itself. Sweeping from a harsh land of cold to a summertime kingdom of epicurean plenty, "A Game of Thrones" tells 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 wildings carry men off into madness, a cruel young dragon prince barters his sister to win back his throne, a child is lost in the twilight between life and death, and a determined woman undertakes a treacherous journey to protect all she holds dear. Amid plots and counterplots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, allies and enemies, the fate of the Starks hangs perilously in the balance, as each side endeavors to win that deadliest of conflicts: the game of thrones.
