    THE BOOK BEHIND THE SECOND SEASON OF GAME OF THRONES, AN ORIGINAL SERIES NOW ON HBO.

    A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE: BOOK TWO
     
    In this thrilling 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 we have ever experienced.
     
    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.

      A master in storytelling, a master in detail.

      I love the tv show and love to read, but I had put off reading these books because I thought they might be difficult to understand. For me, they flow easily, and I enjoy every word. I do think watching the show first helped because I know many of the characters and lands in my mind already. Tyrion is one of my favorites on the show, but somehow I love him even more in the books. Also, somehow, I don’t hate Cersei as much So Far, but my hate for her is steadily growing. I feel more sympathy for Catelyn because the books really let the reader in her head. I didn’t realize how young many of the main characters were during these times either. Daenerys and Jon are barely teens and have both been living in separate wilds. They’ve witnessed dark magic. Arya is barely middle grade age and has killed men. Joffrey, Sansa, Bran, Robb, etc, they’re all children making decisions difficult for adults. Obviously I loved this book and can’t wait to start the next one.
    • A gripping read...

      Clash of Kings continues you on this epic journey. It has been a long time since I couldn't put a book down and Game of Thrones and Clash of Kings have both delivered. Can't wait to start the next one !!

      Great book and well written. I love the way Martin takes us from story line to story line without the feeling of boredom or dismay. Anxiety levels are high as book 3 begins.

      Firstly, I think 'American Tolkien' is apt. I think he does fine work making the familiar seem alien, and vice versa. I disapprove of the detailed sexual episodes, however, as almost entirely gratuitous. This is especially so in the first book. I understand mentioning it alluding to it or describing it to some extent for certain reasons, but most of the time it has a sweaty-middle-aged-guy-in-boxers-in-his-mother's-basement sort of feel. I bought the book b/c supposedly it tells a great story, not because I want to pleasure myself as I read it. The second one is not nearly as focused on fine details and it comes off as more necessary to the plot. I've yet to continue the series so Idk if they're the same or what. If you're reading this before watching the hbo series, beware, they really play this aspect up, at times it's like a renaissance porn festival. Overall though it's really good.
    • Even better than Game of Thrones!

      So much better than TV series. What an amazing writer if so much detail. This series was made for reading on a tablet with the ability to search for info on the web about characters and setting.
