    DescriptionGame of Thrones: A New Original Series, Now on HBO: Dubbed "the American Tolkien" by "Time" magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the #1 "New York Times" bestselling author delivers the fifth book in his landmark series--as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire. A Dance With Dragons: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book Five In the aftermath of a colossal battle, the future of the Seven Kingdoms hangs in the balance--beset by newly emerging threats from every direction. In the east, Daenerys Targaryen, the last scion of House Targaryen, rules with her three dragons as queen of a city built on dust and death. But Daenerys has thousands of enemies, and many have set out to find her. As they gather, one young man embarks upon his own quest for the queen, with an entirely different goal in mind. Fleeing from Westeros with a price on his head, Tyrion Lannister, too, is making his way to Daenerys. But his newest allies in this quest are not the rag-tag band they seem, and at their heart lies one who could undo Daenerys's claim to Westeros forever. Meanwhile, to the north lies the mammoth Wall of ice and stone--a structure only as strong as those guarding it. There, Jon Snow, 998th Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, will face his greatest challenge. For he has powerful foes not only within the Watch but also beyond, in the land of the creatures of ice. From all corners, bitter conflicts reignite, intimate betrayals are perpetrated, and a grand cast of outlaws and priests, soldiers and skinchangers, nobles and slaves, will face seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Some will fail, others will grow in the strength of darkness. But in a time of rising restlessness, the tides of destiny and politics will lead inevitably to the greatest dance of all.

    Author Information
    George R.R. Martin sold his first story in 1971 and has been writing professionally since then. He spent ten years in Hollywood as a writer-producer, working on "The Twilight Zone, Beauty and the Beast," and various feature films and television pilots that were never made. In the mid '90s he returned to prose, his first love, and began work on his epic fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire. He has been in the Seven Kingdoms ever since. Whenever he's allowed to leave, he returns to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he lives with the lovely Parris, a big white dog called Mischa, and two cats named Augustus and Caligula, who think they run the place.
    Review quote
    PRAISE FOR GEORGE R. R. MARTIN'S A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE "What's A Song of Ice and Fire? It's the only fantasy series I'd put on a level with J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings." . . . It's a fantasy series for hip, smart people, even those who don't read fantasy."--"Chicago Tribune" " " A Game of Thrones "Reminiscent of T. H. White's "The Once and Future King, " this novel is an absorbing combination of the mythic, the sweepingly historical, and the intensely personal.""--Chicago Sun-Times" A Clash of Kings "Martin amply fulfills the first volume's promise and continues what seems destined to be one of the best fantasy series ever written."--"The Denver Post" A Storm of Swords "Riveting . . . a series whose brilliance continues to dazzle."--"Patriot News" A Feast for Crows "Of those who work in the grand epic-fantasy tradition, Martin is by far the best. In fact . . . this is as good a time as any to proclaim him the American Tolkien."--"Time " "From the Hardcover edition."
