`Of those who work in the grand epic fantasy tradition, Martin
is by far the best'
`Colossal, staggering... Martin captures all the intoxicating
complexity of the Wars of the Roses or Imperial Rome'
`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.'
