A comet the color of blood and flame cuts across the sky. Two great leaders—Lord Eddard Stark and Robert Baratheon—who hold sway over an age of enforced peace are dead, victims of royal treachery. Now, 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.
Another amazing, awesome, incredible and beautiful fantasy book. This one is the second part in the “A song of ice and fire” book series. I gotta be honest here and say that this second book is less impressive than the first book in this book series but none a less it is still fucking brilliant.
This book has a lot to live up to and it doesn’t disappoint the reader. Which in my opinion is very good because when it comes to book series it tends to go down the hill after the first book but it doesn’t happen yet with this book series which im really thankful for because if the rest of the series is so good as the first two books then it might be my all time favorite book series.
The character are so awesome, they feel so fucking real. And every single character is so different from the rest which makes this book and whole series so unique as it is. Every character in this book has depth to them, they have characteristic which are unique only to them. Every character have things which they don’t like and like. As I’ve already said every character in this book feels like real human beings because there are so much into them.
The writing style here is also as impressive as the characters. Because the writing style is so good that the pages fly past when you pick up the book and you will be siting for hours and hours reading this book without even noticing it. The writing style makes you seeing these things in your head which you are currently are reading about.
The plot in this book is just amazing. There is love, there is drama, there is death, there is the unknown, there is betrayal, there are big families who are fighting for the throne, there are friends, there are enemies, there are lover, there is intrigue, there is fighting, there is power struggle and there is so much more. When there is so much things in a book you just can’t help yourself but love it.
There is also history in this book of what was going on before the current events in this book and before the events in the first book. Whenever there is so much history in a book, how could you not love it ? Because most of the fantasy books now on days doesn’t have that aspect which this series so far has.
This book also needs to get extra points for being a page-turner. The main reason why I didn’t get into this series sooner is because the size of ever book has always scared me. But after getting into this series I’ve resized that this series (at least so far) is a page turner which really helps because every book in this series is huge. But since it is a page turner you don’t really feel the size of every book because the pages go so fast by.
The dialogs between the characters in this book is also important to mention so here it is. The dialogos here are pretty good but some of them felt little bit off and unnatural but there are few of them. It takes couple points away from the rating but nothing major.
I give this book 4 / 5
