A Storm of Swords (A Song of Ice and Fire, #3)
 
Summary:
 
Here is the third volume in George R. R. Martin’s magnificent cycle of novels that includes A Game of Thrones and A Clash of Kings. As a whole, this series comprises a genuine masterpiece of modern fantasy, bringing together the best the genre has to offer. Magic, mystery, intrigue, romance, and adventure fill these pages and transport us to a world unlike any we have ever experienced. Already hailed as a classic, George R. R. Martin’s stunning series is destined to stand as one of the great achievements of imaginative fiction.
A STORM OF SWORDS
Of the five contenders for power, one is dead, another in disfavor, and still the wars rage as violently as ever, as alliances are made and broken. Joffrey, of House Lannister, sits on the Iron Throne, the uneasy ruler of the land of the Seven Kingdoms. His most bitter rival, Lord Stannis, stands defeated and disgraced, the victim of the jealous sorceress who holds him in her evil thrall. But young Robb, of House Stark, still rules the North from the fortress of Riverrun. Robb plots against his despised Lannister enemies, even as they hold his sister hostage at King’s Landing, the seat of the Iron Throne. Meanwhile, making her way across a blood-drenched continent is the exiled queen, Daenerys, mistress of the only three dragons still left in the world. . . .

But as opposing forces maneuver for the final titanic showdown, an army of barbaric wildlings arrives from the outermost line of civilization. In their vanguard is a horde of mythical Others—a supernatural army of the living dead whose animated corpses are unstoppable. As the future of the land hangs in the balance, no one will rest until the Seven Kingdoms have exploded in a veritable storm of swords. . .

  4. Great teaser, Kimberly! I have this whole series on my TBR, I just feel a little overwhelmed by the sheer number of pages in those books :)

  5. Good teaser, Kimberly. I've seen the first two seasons, but have not even considered reading the books, both because of their size and because I do NOT need to get hooked on another author/series. Thanks for visiting!

  6. The size of these books has put me off. But if they are as fast paced as you say I might give them a try.

  9. I love these books! The funny thing is, I've read them all, and I still can't place your teaser or figure out who's speaking or who's body is being sent! I guess after that many thousands of pages, some of the details slip through the cracks. :) Nice choice! Here's my teaser post:

  14. I guess I'm the only one left out who hasn't read it yet. Too many books, too little time :(
