A Clash of Kings

The Second book in The Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin

Description: A comet the color of blood and flame cuts across the sky. And from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns. Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war. It is a tale in which brother plots against brother and the dead rise to walk in the night. Here a princess masquerades as an orphan boy; a knight of the mind prepares a poison for a treacherous sorceress; and wild men descend from the Mountains of the Moon to ravage the countryside. Against a backdrop of incest and fratricide, alchemy and murder, victory may go to the men and women possessed of the coldest steel…and the coldest hearts. For when kings clash, the whole land trembles.

I really, really, REALLY enjoyed this book! It definitely took longer to read with my kids at home but its still not as hard to read as people were complaining about it being, honestly I think it’s quite easy to follow actually. But good lord i just love the whole vibe of these books! It brings me right back to watching the show…I love being in this world so much, the characters and vibrant scenes are just so lovely, the author has such an intricate and impressive world. The story has slowly started to become somewhat unlike the show, I was told by many people that the books and the tv show were totally different and i’m just finally starting to see more and more differences now which has been interesting. I’ve been really loving seeing aria slowly become the badass that I missed, and I just can’t get enough of Tyrion’s brilliant mind! I would do without so much bran and catelyn but aside from that I’m really happy i decided to read this series and I can’t wait to continue it!

I rate this book
