This is a saga not to be missed. Comprising of 5 books, it is a tale of kings, queens, dragons, soldiers, magic, war, love, honor, treachery, sorcerers, assassins, bastards…
In a time long long ago, there are 7 kingdoms ruled by King Robert. Trouble is brewing within the kingdom, and evil and supernatural forces are amassing beyond the kingdom’s protective Wall. At the center of the story lie the Starks of Winterfell, a harsh, unyielding, brave and honorable family. Amid plots, sub plots, tragedy, romance, battles and betrayals, we are introduced to characters, enemies and allies, each one fighting to win the deadliest conflict – Game of Thrones. You are introduced to a lord who stands by his honor, a bastard son trying to prove himself, a young she-wolf surviving on sheer will and wits, a dragon prince who is capable of bartering his sister to gain an army, wildlings who carry men into madness, a queen who will do anything for power, an imp (dwarf man) who manipulates situations with his shrewdness and intelligence and many more! Each character is so well-defined. Just when you think you know what’s going to happen, the plot turns and you are just shocked.
Finally, here’s a book who will go down in history to be an epic similar to Lord of the Rings. This is a genuine masterpiece, a story of modern fantasy that carries us into a magical world, keeping the reader glued chapter after chapter, book after book. HBO airs the TV series, and for the first time here is a TV series that has done justice to magic of the book.
If you liked Lord of the Rings, these 5 books are not to be missed.
