    The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie (LeftHandedMatt)
    LeftHandedMatt: More humourous and lighter in tone than A Song of Ice and Fire, but the world and it's characters are just as wonderfully detailed as those by George R. R. Martin, and the story remains exciting throughout.

This book was so much better than steel and snow and seemed to be a faster pace. ( )

The best of the series I've read thus far! ( )
  denisebhayes | Oct 14, 2013 |
Yes this is the best book of the series so far and yes it has all of the big surprises in it that you have heard other people talking about. I was a bit sceptical about this series when I first started it but have become a firm fan now- this is mainly due to this book. ( )

House Lannister's head, Joffrey, rules uneasily. Joffrey's enemy, Lord Stannis, is disgraced and enthralled. Robb of House Stark still rules the North, implacable in his enmity towards his Lannister foes, even as they hold his sister hostage. And the exiled queen Daenerys, mistress of the world's last three dragons, makes her way across a blood-drenched continent. But as opposing forces maneuver for the final titanic showdown, there appears an army of barbaric wildlings, led by undead Others. The unpredictable violence of a final cataclysm is inevitable; the one certain thing is that many men will die upon many swords.… (more)
