Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King’s Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert’s name. There his family dwells in peace and comfort: his proud wife, Catelyn; his sons Robb, Brandon, and Rickon; his daughters Sansa and Arya; and his bastard son, Jon Snow. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse—unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season.
Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances. Now Robert is riding north to Winterfell, bringing his queen, the lovely but cold Cersei, his son, the cruel, vainglorious Prince Joffrey, and the queen’s brothers Jaime and Tyrion of the powerful and wealthy House Lannister—the first a swordsman without equal, the second a dwarf whose stunted stature belies a brilliant mind. All are heading for Winterfell and a fateful encounter that will change the course of kingdoms.
Meanwhile, across the Narrow Sea, Prince Viserys, heir of the fallen House Targaryen, which once ruled all of Westeros, schemes to reclaim the throne with an army of barbarian Dothraki—whose loyalty he will purchase in the only coin left to him: his beautiful yet innocent sister, Daenerys.

  • Must Read!

    By Shalei Swaim
    Immerse yourself in the world of Game of Thrones and you won’t regret it. I am hungover from reading the series and watching the HBO TV series. I already miss it!
  • Muito bom

    Melhor fantasia de todos os tempos.
  • Best

    By Reading 'n Writing 1635
    Without a doubt best historical/ fantasy/fiction! So much scraped out of European medieval history and folklore— and that includes the Red Wedding. Sadly George is never going to finish the next book let alone the series. Read the books then watch the series.
  • Very good book!

    This is a fantastic series!! I’m on a mission to read 50 books in a year. I’ve hit the halfway mark and decided to reread this series since Dance wasn’t out yet when I read it previously. I’m a huge fan of the show - but like most, the books are better by far. A Game of Thrones kept me captured the entire way through. Dany is my favorite character and I found myself reading and then counting the chapters until I would hear from her again. Martins style of story telling is beautiful.. I love how much detail is poured into these books but yet they move through time quickly without sacrifice. It’s easy to while the day away reading this book. If you’re debating whether to read them, you must! The size of the book is a little intimidating, but once you’ve sunk your teeth in you’ll be so glad because the story is soooo amazing! I feel this book and the first season of the show are most alike. Once you move on to A Clash of Kings you’ll notice more of the story is left out of the show. I’m looking forward to the final two books... I have full confidence that George will hook us up with a fabulous ending that gives us all the detail we crave. Also, for the huge fans like me.. read A World of Ice and Fire. It isn’t written as a story like this series, but I loved the reading the history of Westeros. Just an absolute phenomenal world created here!! Through and through.
  • Game of thrones and for a good reason it was named that title

    By Ignacio2017
    It is a great story but you have to get used to the writhers way of writing. It tells you the story from different characters point of view
  • This book spawned the retarded TV show
