In this eagerly awaited sequel to A Game of Thrones, George R. R. Martin has created a work of unsurpassed vision, power, and imagination. A Clash of Kings transports us to a world of revelry and revenge, wizardry and warfare unlike any you have ever experienced.


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.

Theon Greyjoy one of the “new” POV. And I can say is that he is a pitiful stupid man that deserves to die a horrible death and to never inherit his birthright and I hope it goes to his sister. We’re introduced to Davos who is serves Stannis whom late king’s brother and believes he’s the rightful heir to the iron thorn. I find it kinda funny that they all those who “clame” to be the rightful king to the Seven Kingdoms and the entire realm doesn’t really belong to them. Each character dose what is best for their situation and how it’s told and events payout you are left with wanting to read more and what’s going to happen next. Only criticism have is too many tittles mentioned other than that I liked it better than the first. I cannot wait to read the next book.
