A Clash of Kings (A Song of Ice and Fire #2)
|Author:||George R. R. Martin (Editor)|
|Series:||Song of Ice and Fire Ser.|
'A Game of Thrones grabs hold and won't let go. It's brilliant' - Robert Jordan 'I read my eyes out. I couldn't stop until I'd finished and it was dawn.' - Anne McCaffrey '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.' - SFX '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.' - Guardian 'An extraordinarily rich novel... The book stands out from similar work by virtue of its superbly developed characters, accomplished prose and sheer bloody-mindedness... Martin's trophy case is already stuffed with major prizes, including Hugos, Nebulas, Locus Awards and a Bram Stoker. He's probably going to have to add another shelf, at least.' - Publishers Weekly 'One of the all-time classic fantasy series, right up there with The Belgariad and The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, and, yes, with The Lord of the Rings.' - The Alien Has Landed
George R.R. Martin has written six novels and many screenplays for television and feature films.
