Reminiscent of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic fantasy novels, "Game of Thrones" takes readers through an epic journey for the right to sit on the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms. In a kingdom where summers last years and winters can last lifetimes, we follow 3 families in their quest for power, peace and survival through these trying times. A usurper sits upon the Iron Throne and it's true heir is quickly approaching. The kingdom of the North begins to see signs of winter approaching, as well as the dark creatures that inhabit the lands north of the infamous Wall. George R.R. Martin does the fantasy genre justice as he weaves tangled webs between all of the characters and their journeys. If you are looking for an epic book, that will have you on the edge of your seat, wanting more, "Game of Thrones" is just the book for you.
The kingdom of the royal Stark family faces its ultimate challenge in the onset of a generation-long winter, the poisonous plots of the rival Lannisters, the emergence of the Neverborn demons, and the arrival of barbarian hordes.
