Summary:

Long ago, in a time forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons out of balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister and supernatural forces are massing beyond the kingdom's protective Wall. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the land they were born to. Sweeping from a land of brutal cold to a distant summertime kingdom of epicurean plenty, here is a tale of lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and bastards, who come together in a time of grim omens.

    This is the beginning of one of the most complex yet thoroughly enjoyable fantasy/soap operas I have ever experienced. Just when one is tempted to begin questioning their commitment to this epic, a character says or does something completely down to earth, or funny or does something heroic and action packed. You can barely tell the players without a scorecard built, I promise, this is so well orchestrated that the listener will know who everyone is and have them sorted long before the end.

  • Christy Barrett

    Enjoyable book. The narration is not my favorite though.

  • Robert LaTourette

    Great book! Narrater takes a little getting used to but overall fairly good.

  • Adam Sandve

    Roy Dotrice is a fantastic narrator. He is engaging, entertaining, and his impersonation of Hodor gets me every time. Makes my commute to school and running much more enjoyable.

  • Maggie Rickards

    So good, really loved it. I\'ve read the books before but the narrator really brought it to life.

  • Dean Ainsworth

    I loved the book and have to say the narrator made this book.

  • Mai Pham

    The beginning was very hard to grasp but 2 hours in, I was captivated! It took that long to start putting together some of the characters and so I thought it worthwhile to start over. Very difficult to shut off even after my commute ended. Narrator couldn\'t be better for the multitude of characters. Looking forward to the next listen in the series.

  • Heidi Westerhuis

    The narration on this book is just as excellent as the book itself.

  • Robert Hogan

    I really enjoyed the Game of Thornes. It was wonderful journey back and through medieval times,. The reader made you feel as though you are actually alive in the story.
