Manufacturer's product description

In the grand epic fantasy tradition, Martin is by far the best ! tense, surging, insomnia-inflicting' Time Magazine 'An absorbing, exciting read ! Martin's style is so vivid that you will be hooked within a few pages' The Times 'The sheer mind-boggling scope of this epic has sent other fantasy writers away shaking their heads !Its ambition: to construct the Twelve Caesars of fantasy fiction, with characters so venomous they could eat the Borgias' Guardian 'Colossal, staggering ! Martin captures all the intoxicating complexity of the Wars of the Roses or Imperial Rome in his imaginary world ! The writing is always powerful !' SFX 'Truly epic ! with its magnificent action-filled climax, it provides a banquet for fantasy lovers with large appetites.' Publishers Weekly 'Such a splendid tale. I read my eyes out -- I couldn't stop till I'd finished and it was dawn.' Anne McCaffrey 'A Song of Ice and Fire offers the rich tapestry that the very best fantasy demands: iron and steel within the silk, grandeur within the wonder, and characters torn between deep love and loyalty. Few created worlds are as imaginative and diverse.' Janny Wurts 'George Martin is assuredly a new master craftsman in the guild of heroic fantasy.' Katharine Kerr 'A dazzling fantasy adventure !' Julian May The long-awaited fifth volume in the hugely popular and highly acclaimed epic fantasy A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE The last of the Targaryons, Daenerys Stormborn, the Unburnt, has brought the young dragons in her care to their terrifying maturity. Now the war-torn landscape of the Seven Kingdoms is threatened by destruction as vast as in the violent past. Tyrion Lannister, a dwarf with half a nose and a scar from eye to chin, has slain his father and escaped the Red Keep in King's Landing to wage war from the Free Cities beyond the narrow sea. The last war fought with dragons was a cataclysm powerful enough to shatter the Valyrian peninsula into a smoking, demon-haunted ruin half drowned by the sea. A DANCE WITH DRAGONS brings to life dark magic, complex political intrigue and horrific bloodshed as events at the Wall and beyond the sea threaten the ancient land of Westeros.
