"A riveting continuation of a series whose brilliance continues to dazzle."-Patriot News

"I always expect the best from George R. R. Martin, and he always delivers."-Robert Jordan

This story of power, politics, and people of the Seven Kingdoms is the setting for the Hugo-nominated third installment in the "Song of Fire and Ice" series. The numerous story threads are intense, compelling, and multifaceted as Martin weaves a tale full of battles, political infighting, plot twists, and complex characters. Tony Award-winning British actor Roy Dotrice provides an engaging narration. VERDICT Those unfamiliar with the series may need a character guide to keep track of all the players, but this will be welcomed by Martin's legion of fans and those enjoying the HBO production based on the series. ["A rousing saga that should appeal to most fans of grand-scale fantasy," read the review of the Bantam hc, LJ 11/15/00.-Ed.]-Denise A. Garofalo, Mount Saint Mary Coll.
