A Clash of Kings by George R R Martin

Synopsis

Throughout Westeros, the cold winds are rising.

From the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding lands of Winterfell, chaos reigns as pretenders to the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms stake their claims through tempest, turmoil and war.

As a prophecy of doom cuts across the sky – a comet the colour of blood and flame – five factions struggle for control of a divided land. Brother plots against brother and the dead rise to walk in the night.

Against a backdrop of incest, fratricide, alchemy and murder, the price of glory is measured in blood

My thoughts

I could not wait to get stuck into this, the 2nd book in the Song of Ice and Fire series, and although Martin has a propensity for killing off his characters, it really felt like I was visiting with old friends and I am glad to report that so far none of my favourites have been dispatched in an untimely and violent manner. (It probably won’t be long)

The characters are growing as we find out more about them and the fight for the Iron throne is heating up.

I do have my favourite characters as I am sure most people who read this series do, so far they have made it through but who knows what will happen to them next. So although my favourite characters are still intact so are my least – I hate Cersei and Joff and wish that someone would do them in once and for all.

Can’t wait to get the next book in the series and continue my journey with George RR Martin’s creation
