- We can order this
Beautiful leather-bound slipcase editions of George R.R. Martin's landmark epic A Song of Ice and Fire, the inspiration for the world's most-watched television series, Game of Thrones.
The future of the Seven Kingdoms hangs in the balance.
In the east, Daenerys, last scion of House Targaryen, her dragons grown to terrifying maturity, rules as queen of a city built on dust and death, beset by enemies.
Now that her whereabouts are known many are seeking Daenerys and her dragons. Among them the dwarf, Tyrion Lannister, who has escaped King's Landing with a price on his head, wrongfully condemned to death for the murder of his nephew, King Joffrey. But not before killing his hated father, Lord Tywin.
To the north lies the great Wall of ice and stone - a structure only as strong as those guarding it. Eddard Stark's bastard son Jon Snow has been elected the 998th Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, but he has enemies both in the Watch and beyond the Wall, where the wildling armies are massing for an assault.
On all sides bitter conflicts are reigniting, played out by a grand cast of outlaws and priests, soldiers and skinchangers, nobles and slaves. The tides of destiny will inevitably lead to the greatest dance of all...
This special slipcased edition is bound in gilded and embossed red leather, with gilt-edged pages, and a sewn binding with ribbon bookmark.

Praise for A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE:
'In the grand epic fantasy tradition, Martin is by far the best ... tense, surging, insomnia-inflicting' Time Magazine
`An absorbing, exciting read ... Martin's style is so vivid that you will be hooked within a few pages' The Times
`The sheer mind-boggling scope of this epic has sent other fantasy writers away shaking their heads ...Its ambition: to construct the Twelve Caesars of fantasy fiction, with characters so venomous they could eat the Borgias'
`Colossal, staggering ... Martin captures all the intoxicating complexity of the Wars of the Roses or Imperial Rome in his imaginary world ... The writing is always powerful ...' SFX

I know I'll probably be in the minority, but I was disappointed. I've been a fan of this series ever since being given the first volume as a present some years ago. I have been entranced throughout, but... More
The book is in depth, yes, but would you want a volume of a song of ice and fire to be over in 100 pages? I loved the fact that there was a lot going on and like the previous reviewer said, it is just a few chapters... More
