Overview

Quicklets: Learn More. Read Less. George R. R. Martin is an American science-fiction/fantasy author from New Jersey. He is most well known for his series, A Song of Ice and Fire. A lifelong comic book fan, Martin became interested in writing at a young age. In the 1980s, he began writing for several science-fiction television series. After writing for television, Martin was struggling with a new book in the 1990s. In his story, he developed a scene where a group of children find a dead direwolf and several direwolf pups. This scene would go on to plant the seeds for A Song of Ice and Fire. A Game of Thrones is the first installment in his series, A Song of Ice and Fire. Martin is finishing the seventh and final installment in the series, which was originally intended to be a trilogy. The series has been translated into 27 languages and was recently made into an award-winning television series on HBO. About the book: In the years following a devastating revolution to unseat an insane tyrant, all is not well in the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. A top aide of the new king has died under mysterious circumstances, the heirs of the deposed despot seek to raise an army to reclaim the throne, and winter is coming... a cold and harsh winter that threatens to last for years. As a mysterious and horrifying force gathers in the wilderness, edging ever nearer to the unsuspecting people of the Seven Kingdoms, Lord Eddard Stark, a close friend of the king, investigates the death of his aide and uncovers a conspiracy that could tear the kingdoms apart. As families and steel clash amid a web of deception, Stark learns that when playing the game of thrones, there is one rule: you win, or you die. SHORT EXCERPT FROM CHAPTERS 3-6 Id let the whole khalasar fuck you if need be, sweet sister, all forty thousand men, and their horses too if that was what it took to get my army... On the eastern continent, Daenerys Targaryen is being prepared for an arranged marriage. Her older brother Viserys hopes to marry her to Khal Drogo, a savage Dothraki warlord in exchange for an army with which to invade the Seven Kingdoms and reclaim the throne. The siblings are the last living children of Mad King Aerys Targaryen, whom Ned and Robert overthrew fifteen years previously. Daenerys is frightened of Drogo, and also of her brother, who is very emotionally and physically abusive. Arriving in Winterfell, King Robert demands that Ned take him to the Stark family crypt so he can pay his respects to Neds late sister Lyanna, to whom Robert was once engaged to be married. In the crypt, Ned and Robert reminisce about the rebellion, and Robert asks Ned to take over Arryns position as The Kings Hand. He also offers to wed his son, Prince Joffery to Neds eldest daughter. Ned is hesitant to leave Winterfell, but says he will consider the matter with Catelyn. ...to read more, buy the Quicklet! Quicklets: Learn More. Read Less.
