Magnificently descriptive and eloquent, Dreams and Dust continues to bring to life a realm and characters so real, you feel you can reach out and touch them. Martins ability to compose a substantial and tangible world is absolute.
The beginning of A Dance with Dragons takes you back, to just after A Storm of Swords and runs concurrently alongside A Feast for Crows. A period of relative peace dawns, allowing the dragons and other characters time to grow and collations to form and be rent asunder.
In a time to forge alliances, it is essential that every thought and move is considered. The hidden is slowly revealed, yet another claimant enters the fray and predatory courtship prowls to the forefront alongside ambition.
The authors strength lies in his ability to continuously surprise, with his differing tales writhing and fusing together before capriciously exploding apart. Venom comes in many different forms; hostile thoughts and malicious words can be just as dangerous as poison if used shrewdly. The skirmishes and battles for power, revenge and sometimes just plain but vital survival continue.
HBO's hit series A GAME OF THRONES is based on George R R Martin's internationally bestselling series A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE, the greatest fantasy epic of the modern age. A DANCE WITH DRAGONS is the fifth volume in the series.
A beautifully presented slipcased edition of A DANCE WITH DRAGONS. The future of the Seven Kingdoms hangs in the balance. In the east, Daenerys, last scion of House Targaryen, her dragons grown to terrifying maturity, rules as queen of a city built on dust and death, beset by enemies. Now that her whereabouts are known many are seeking Daenerys and her dragons. Among them the dwarf, Tyrion Lannister, who has escaped King's Landing with a price on his head, wrongfully condemned to death for the murder of his nephew, King Joffrey. But not before killing his hated father, Lord Tywin. To the north lies the great Wall of ice and stone - a structure only as strong as those guarding it. Eddard Stark's bastard son Jon Snow has been elected the 998th Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, but he has enemies both in the Watch and beyond the Wall, where the wildling armies are massing for an assault. On all sides bitter conflicts are reigniting, played out by a grand cast of outlaws and priests, soldiers and skinchangers, nobles and slaves. The tides of destiny will inevitably lead to the greatest dance of all...
Praise for A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE:
'In the grand epic fantasy tradition, Martin is by far the best ... tense, surging, insomnia-inflicting
`An absorbing, exciting read ... Martin's style is so vivid that you will be hooked within a few pages
`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'Guardian
`Colossal, staggering ... Martin captures all the intoxicating complexity of the Wars of the Roses or Imperial Rome in his imaginary world ... The writing is always powerful ...
