The A Song of Ice and Fire Series George R.R. Martin Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

For the first time, all five novels in the epic fantasy series that inspired HBO’s Game of Thrones are together in one eBook bundle. An immersive entertainment experience unlike any other, A Song of Ice and Fire has earned George R. R. Martin—dubbed “the American Tolkien” by Time magazine—international acclaim and millions of loyal readers. Now this bundle collects the entire monumental cycle in the most convenient format available:
 
A GAME OF THRONES
A CLASH OF KINGS
A STORM OF SWORDS
A FEAST FOR CROWS
A DANCE WITH DRAGONS
 
“One of the best series in the history of fantasy.”—Los Angeles Times
 
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.
 
“Long live George Martin . . . a literary dervish, enthralled by complicated characters and vivid language, and bursting with the wild vision of the very best tale tellers.”—The New York Times

    It doesn’t take an entire to tell a good reading apart from the rest. This by far the greatest author I have heard from in a long time. Many have come before him, particularly in the romantic languages. I have not scratched the surface, yet I am extremely pleased. I wish to savor every paragraph as I am in no rush to complete the volumes. Thank you most sincerely, Steve A.

  • Great Read b/c it’s a great puzzle

    George RR Martin put together a great story, then broke it into a thousand puzzle pieces and pulled us into it all with great storytelling. This series is about power and human nature, with a medieval yet otherworldly setting. It has adult themes and it’s own history yet also has its own mythology, magic and dragons. While the HBO TV series is great, the books are better and far richer. It’s a lot of addictive reading, but you’ll be happy you read it. Note that the TV story lines have moved past book 5; readers anxiously await GRRM’s final book(s) in the series, which I plan to read even if the TV show is concluded.
  • Awesome books.

    I find that this book is really great from the depth and detail of the world itself to the intensity of how the houses and history make changes to the book now. Daenerys is definitely my favorite character talk about mother of dragons.

    The way the chapters are numbered in this iBook collection is VERY frustrating! The character names & chapter number would be ideal -- please update this and I'll update my review accordingly.

    George RR Martin is a genius this is by far the best fantasy series ever written. He definitely beats Tolkien in many ways. Can't wait for The Winds of Winter.
