About this item

Fantasy master George R. R. Martin further fleshes out the world and the epic drama he's created in his A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy series. This fifth book of a planned seven comes after the popular FEAST FOR CROWS. DANCE WITH DRAGONS, the events of which take place in the same general timeframe as FEAST, brings back to the page some of Martin's most popular characters that were absent in FEAST. Fans of this saga will be thrilled, for example, to follow Jon Snow's northern adventures, as he contends with pressures from his colleagues in the Night's Watch and threats from the icy, white beyond. DANCE WITH DRAGONS maintains Martin's excellent storytelling, launching this series into unforeseeable territory.

GAME OF THRONES: A NEW ORIGINAL SERIES, NOW ON HBO.Dubbed 'the American Tolkien' by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the 1 New York Times bestselling author delivers the fifth book in his landmark seriesmdash;as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire. A DANCE WITH DRAGONSA SONG OF ICE AND FIRE: BOOK FIVEIn the aftermath of a colossal battle, the future of the Seven Kingdoms hangs in the balance- beset by newly emerging threats from every direction. In the east, Daenerys Targaryen, the last scion of House Targaryen, rules with her three dragons as queen of a city built on dust and death. But Daenerys has thousands of enemies, and many have set out to find her. As they gather, one young man embarks upon his own quest for the queen, with an entirely different goal in mind.Fleeing from Westeros with a price on his head, Tyrion Lannister, too, is making his way to Daenerys. But his newest allies in this quest are not the rag-tag band they seem, and at their heart lies one who could undo Daenery's claim to Westeros forever.Meanwhile, to the north lies the mammoth Wall of ice and stone- a structure only as strong as those guarding it. There, Jon Snow, 998th Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, will face his greatest challenge. For he has powerful foes not only within the Watch but also beyond, in the land of the creatures of ice.From all corners, bitter conflicts reignite, intimate betrayals are perpetrated, and a grand cast of outlaws and priests, soldiers and skinchangers, nobles and slaves, will face seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Some will fail, others will grow in the strength of darkness. But in a time of rising restlessness, the tides of destiny and politics will lead inevitably to the greatest dance of all.
