A truly fantastic book, complete with twists and turns I just could not put this book down. Agree with the other reviews on here, the best book so far and it just left me wanting to read more and more of this amazing genre of books.

Amazing book, it is a fantastic reading (the other books from a Song of Ice and Fire are great too). Still the author keeps you in suspense at the end of each chapter, waiting for more. Great plots and twists.

  The best

For me, this (part 2 of the third novel in the series) is the strongest bar none. No author has ever thrown in such twists and turns and kept the reader so astounded as GRRM. This book will blow you away, it's brilliant.

The plot twists in this have to be seen to be believed, their are several in this book with one being one of the all time best i have ever read, no-one is safe should be the title of this series, compelling drama where the characters are always developing and suprising you with their ability's or flaws, simply outstanding

  Absolutely Gripping

This is the 4th book in the series 'A Song of Ice and Fire' which is based on a mythical fantasy land similar to that of Tolkien's Middle Earth. George R R Martin doubles the scale of Tolkien with a story so full of twists, blood and gold that you will be shocked, almost crying for characters you believed to become heroes, yet Martin is so far from cliche, no one and nowhere is safe.

The character development is cleverly interwoven into a central story of battle and glory for the seven kingdoms. Just when you think you can see where Martin is going with the story, it changes and at times dramatically with such literacy style that it brings intense emotion to read.

I cannot recommend this book enough. IMO this is better than The Lord Of The Rings. The scale, the characters, the twists and brilliant pace and style of writing.

George R R Martin is literary genius.
