Game of Thrones - A Song of Ice and Fire - by George R.R. Martin

Here is a tale of several families inland of Westeros, and their struggle for power, for glory, and to win the deadliest game of all.

When Ned Stark is called upon by King Robert to take up arms as the hand of the king, he reluctantly travels to the North, taking with him his two daughters Arya, and Sansa, and leaving behind the rest of his family in order to fulfill an oath to his oldest friend.

But King’s Landing is nothing like the North; full of intrigues and betrayal, and with the fate of the kingdom resting in the balance, all hinging on who will win the game of thrones.

Just when the fantasy genre nearly fell into ruin, in comes George R.R. Martin, a successor worthy of J.R.R Tolkein, and with a single pen, he manages to bring into existence an entire universe, filled with dragons, magic, swords and lore, and a world worthy of any true fantasy fan.

From the Starks to the Baratherons to the Targareyns and the Lannisters, Martin manages to create several sympathetic and barbaric characters within the same house, all in an effort to make his world more inclusive and diverse, and the result is astonishing.

It’s hard not to be swept up in this epic tale filled with noble heroes and despicable villains alike, while Martin throws in enough twists and turns, changing the face of the entire genre and breathing new life into it.

While Martin himself lags, given that it’s been almost nine years since the release of the latest book, his only crime is intense dedication, and his desire to perfect a series that has amassed a cult-like following, and worldwide phenomena.
