Summary of the Book
Of the five contenders for power, one is dead, another in disfavor, and still the wars rage as violently as ever, as alliances are made and broken. Joffrey, of House Lannister, sits on the Iron Throne, the uneasy ruler of the land of the Seven Kingdoms. His most bitter rival, Lord Stannis, stands defeated and disgraced, the victim of the jealous sorceress who holds him in her evil thrall. But young Robb, of House Stark, still rules the North from the fortress of Riverrun. Robb plots against his despised Lannister enemies, even as they hold his sister hostage at King’s Landing, the seat of the Iron Throne. Meanwhile, making her way across a blood-drenched continent is the exiled queen, Daenerys, mistress of the only three dragons still left in the world.
But as opposing forces maneuver for the final titanic showdown, an army of barbaric wildlings arrives from the outermost line of civilization. In their vanguard is a horde of mythical Others–a supernatural army of the living dead whose animated corpses are unstoppable. As the future of the land hangs in the balance, no one will rest until the Seven Kingdoms have exploded in a veritable storm of swords.
Reviews of A Storm of Swords
The Saga of Westeros continues in this third novel in the series. There are some excellent unexpected twists in this novel (no spoilers here). Robb Stark becomes more nuanced, and unexpectedly, Jaime Lannister emerges as a more sympathetic figure, regardless of his earlier despicable behavior. There are enough surprises in this third installment to satisfy anyone. Not all of them things that some readers will want to see, but such is the story, as is life.
Most series have a way of deteriorating as they move along. This one, into the third novel at least, does the opposite — it gets better and better as the characters mature and become even more nuanced. This third novel is superb. RJB. (by Roger J. Buffington, amazon.com)
