This stunning enhanced edition of the hugely popular and highly acclaimed epic fantasy features an interactive map tracking main characters’ journeys, audio extracts of key scenes and a hyperlinked character glossary.
Summers span decades. Winter can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun.
It will stretch from the south, where heat breeds plot, lusts and intrigues; to the vast and savage eastern lands; all the way to the frozen north, where an 800-foot wall of ice protects the kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men… all will play the Game of Thrones.
Winter is coming…
‘A Game of Thrones grabs hold and won’t let go. It’s brilliant.’
‘Such a splendid tale. I couldn’t stop till I’d finished and it was dawn.’
‘Colossal, staggering… Martin captures all the intoxicating complexity of the Wars of the Roses or Imperial Rome in his imaginary world… one of the greats of fantasy literature.’
‘Fantasy literature has never shied away from grandeur, but 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.’

The Audio is Awesome
This enhanced edition did not meet expectations. The map is beautiful and helps to explain the story but it is poor resolution and has no zoom functionality. It needs an iPad update. The hyperlinked character glossary did not appear. Those things aside, the audio really helps to bring the story to life (especially the saucy and violent parts) and story itself is "epic" as promised.
Map Icon doesn't work and hyperlink only works in night theme
Purchased this on latest iPad with latest version of ebooks at an inflated price as promised interactive map. Icon link to map DOES NOT WORK!!! Plus the hyperlink only work in certain theme! Very disappointed!! Fix bug please or stop false advertising.. The book itself is brilliant as author but add ons do not work correctly. Should have saved money and purchased standard edition!!!
Not so enhanced
The story is, well it's a best seller.
The audio book's feature works but the map button doesn't.
Need an update for map quality and button fix.
