HBO's hit series A GAME OF THRONES is based on George R. R. Martin's internationally bestselling series A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE, the greatest fantasy epic of the modern age. A GAME OF THRONES is the first volume in the series.

Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men... all will play the GAME OF THRONES.

Summers span decades. Winter can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun.

It will stretch from the south, where heat breeds plot, lusts and intrigues; to the vast and savage eastern lands; all the way to the frozen north, where a 700-foot wall of ice protects the kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond. The Game of Thrones. You win, or you die.

Book One of A Song of Ice and Fire begins the greatest fantasy epic of the modern age.

Winter is coming...

Oh My God. I can't wait to have the book with this cover in my hand. Martin has created one amazing world that you will want to be in. And the thing that this book will be made into TV series is even greater thing. I love Martin's books and i will surely love the TV series. If it's Sean Bean it definitely will be good. Don't miss this great adventure. You won't be disappointed form this book.show more
