THE BOOK BEHIND THE SECOND SEASON OF GAME OF THRONES, AN ORIGINAL SERIES NOW ON HBO.
A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE: BOOK TWO
In this thrilling sequel to A Game of Thrones, George R. R. Martin has created a work of unsurpassed vision, power, and imagination. A Clash of Kings transports us to a world of revelry and revenge, wizardry and warfare unlike any we have ever experienced.
A comet the color of blood and flame cuts across the sky. And from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns. Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war. It is a tale in which brother plots against brother and the dead rise to walk in the night. Here a princess masquerades as an orphan boy; a knight of the mind prepares a poison for a treacherous sorceress; and wild men descend from the Mountains of the Moon to ravage the countryside. Against a backdrop of incest and fratricide, alchemy and murder, victory may go to the men and women possessed of the coldest steel . . . and the coldest hearts. For when kings clash, the whole land trembles.

Can't wait for book 5!
Read it a decade ago in paperback but when the show came out I decided I needed a reread and I must say it was just as good as I remembered.
Saw other readers complaining about people dying and to that I say "valar morghulis". All men must die. Don't like it? Don't read this book but if you do read it I hope you enjoy the story as much as I do.
Book you can't put down.
I hope the HBO series does the book justice..
This book is a thrill ride from beginning to end. To get the most out of it you need to read the first book before this one however. From a "Game of Thrones" I was hooked. The moment I finished "Game of Thrones" I started reading this book with hardly a pause in between. If you like a story about warring faction, ancient houses and magics, if you like high fantasy but want them to paint a believable world for you to travel through then I say don't miss this series of books. The only thing that keeps me from rating the book five stars is some awkward feeling sex scenes an after the end of the first book the pace of the beginning of this one seemed a bit slow but boy does it pickup. Enjoy this. Don't miss it.
