A Dance with Dragons
George RR Martin
One for both teens and parents, the fifth volume of A Song of Ice and Fire, the ‘greatest fantasy epic of the modern age’.
Game of Thrones is now a major TV winner from HBO, with the second series which just started.
The future of the Seven Kingdoms hangs in the balance.
In the east, Daenerys, last scion of House Targaryen, her dragons grown to terrifying maturity, rules as queen of a city built on dust and death, beset by enemies.
To the north lies the great wall of ice and stone.
Eddard Stark’s bastard son Jon Snow, has been elected the 998th Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch, but he has enemies both in the watch and beyond the wall, where the wildling armies are massing for an assault.
On all sides bitter conflicts are reigniting, played out by a grand cast of outlaws and priests, soldiers and skinchangers, nobles and slaves. The tides of destiny will inevitably lead to the greatest dance of all.
All sounds like gobbledegook to us but it’s bound to be a biggie.
