The Seven Kingdoms are still in war, and the five pretending to be kings are dropping dead one by one. Meanwhile, a different war is about to start beyond the Wall… Joffrey still sits on the Iron Throne for most of the book, but he gets what he deserves in the end. His most dangerous rival is Lord Stannis, with Melisandre at his side. Using black magic in name of the Lord of Light, they try to win the Iron Throne for the brother of the previous king Robert.  The young King Of The North Robb still holds the North, untill a Red Wedding makes an end to that. Balon Greyjoy is king of his Iron Islands, but not much more. And don’t forget about Daenerys, the Mother Of Dragons, making her way back to the Seven Kingdoms with her three dragons to claim back the Iron Throne…

A lot of fighting, a lot of death… It’s best not to become fond of a certain character, because nobody is safe. Valar Morghulis… All men must die. Splendid third book of the A Song Of Ice And Fire series, would recommend it within a blink of an eye. Read it and find out for yourself who lives and who dies, and what becomes of the war beyond the Wall. Watch out, because winter is coming… And so do the Others.
