about this item
The ultimate collector’s item for fans of the epic fantasy series that inspired HBO’sGame of Thrones—a gorgeous boxed set featuring conveniently sized, hand-holdable leather-cloth-bound editions of the first five novels! An immersive entertainment experience unlike any other, A Song of Ice and Fire has earned George R. R. Martin—dubbed “the American Tolkien” byTime magazine—international acclaim and millions of loyal readers. Now the monumental saga gets the royal treatment it deserves, with each book wrapped in bound leather-cloth covers and packaged together in an elegant display case. This one-of-a-kind boxed set includes: A GAME OF THRONESA CLASH OF KINGSA STORM OF SWORDSA FEAST FOR CROWSA DANCE WITH DRAGONS “One of the best series in the history of fantasy.”—Los Angeles Times Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King’s Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert’s name. There his family dwells in peace and comfort: his proud wife, Catelyn; his sons Robb, Brandon, and Rickon; his daughters Sansa and Arya; and his ****** son, Jon Snow. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse—unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season. Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances. Now Robert is riding north to Winterfell, bringing his queen, the lovely but cold Cersei, his son, the cruel, vainglorious Prince Joffrey, and the queen’s brothers Jaime and Tyrion of the powerful and wealthy House Lannister—the first a swordsman without equal, the second a dwarf whose stunted stature belies a brilliant mind. All are heading for Winterfell and a fateful encounter that will change the course of kingdoms. Meanwhile, across the Narrow Sea, Prince Viserys, heir of the fallen House Targaryen, which once ruled all of Westeros, schemes to reclaim the throne with an army of barbarian Dothraki—whose loyalty he will purchase in the only coin left to him: his beautiful yet innocent sister, Daenerys. “Long live George Martin . . . a literary dervish, enthralled by complicated characters and vivid language, and bursting with the wild vision of the very best tale tellers.”—The New York Times

Great Story - Small Books
4 out of 5 stars

These are amazing books, especially if you watch the show, there is no much more detail in the books it makes the show easier to follow. I don't like the feel of these books particularly though, the pages and thin and the book is small. I prefer the more classic felling.

These are BEAUTIFULL!! I thought from the other reviews they’d be kind of ridiculously small but they’re a very reasonable book size. Also other people said the pages are kind bible like though I can tell the paper weight is definitely a little heavier than a bible and papery instead of tissue-y whi...see moreof the reviewer's review

If you're a fan of the Song of Ice and Fire series or knows someone that is, this set is a must have! The individual books are about the size of standard paperbacks, but with pretty leather-like covers. They come in an attractive box and display beautifully on my bookshelf.
Very nice box set

Size is a little smaller than expected, but the quality and overall feel of the books is very nice. I bought this as a gift for much wife and she commented several times how beautiful they looked. Once she is done reading them I intend to pick them up.
Small but nice

These books are pretty small and feel like they were made exactly like a bible with those thin pages and soft but leathery cover. I don’t mind it at all but I think it’s worth noting. Overall the books are flexible and comfortable to hold and the small print works for me.see moreof the reviewer's review
