A STORM OF SWORDS
From the Inside Flap
In this eagerly awaited sequel to A Game of Thrones, George R. R. Martin has created a work of unsurpassed vision, power, and imagination. A Clash of Kings transports us to a world of revelry and revenge, wizardry and warfare unlike any you have
A Clash Of Kings
A comet the color of blood and flame cuts across the sky. And from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns. Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war. It is a tale in which brother plots against brother and the dead rise to walk in the night. Here a princess masquerades as an orphan boy; a knight of the mind prepares a poison for a treacherous sorceress; and wild men descend from the Mountains of the Moon to ravage the countryside. Against a backdrop of incest and fratricide, alchemy and murder, victory may go to the men and women possessed of the coldest steel...and the coldest hearts. For when kings clash, the whole land trembles.

It's on the inside though that one can find its great value. As you know, it's the second tome of a series. And the first is worth reading too. But this one stands out from the first in a way that really makes the story fly and go further. Some very neat turnovers in the story are to be read, some totally unexpected deaths of beloved characters (just like in the first one) and above all an extraordinary writing style. Even for me, a french speaker, it is a fairly simple book to read because of the simplicity of the writing style and the way the author progressively picks up a steady storytelling pace and keeps the reader entertained.
In conclusion, this book is amazing. But don't read it unless you have read the first, or watched the first season of the TV Series.
Delivery and service were as promised, with the book arriving in the minimum time promised....Thanks Amazon and your team of people who make this excellent service possible.
