A Storm of Swords Part 2: Blood and Gold by George R. R. Martin (2000)

  1. 20
    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.

    The Warded Man by Peter V. Brett (LeftHandedMatt)

Half a book so this is half a revi-

-ew. Goodreads is treating them as one book. Puzzling.

Best epic fantasy novel ever bar none! So much stuff happens! Then more stuff happens! Bloody amazing! ( )

This is the second volume in the third book, in George R R Martin's idiosyncratic numbering system. While Part 1 Steel and Snow was rather slow moving and seemed to tread water, Part 2 Blood and Gold, after a slightly slow start, contained a lot of dramatic and horrifying events, especially surrounding the Red Wedding and King Joffrey Baratheon's wedding. A couple of my favourite characters' fates hung in the balance, but they have made it to the end of the novel. The ending sets the scene for some interesting new directions in the next book, which I may well read sooner than the six month gap I left between the two parts of Book 3. ( )

ARRASADOR. O número de reviravoltas na história, as mortes brutais que ocorrem e que me fizeram pensar de que forma o autor pode continuar com a história sem estas personagens, agarrou-me duma forma extraordinária.
É um livro extraordinário duma saga que fica na literatura como uma das melhores sagas de fantasia ou história fantástica de todos os tempos ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

The third volume of Martin's beloved fantasy saga. Four contend for power over the Iron Throne and the Land of the Seven Kingdoms; alliances shift, and betrayal is always an option. 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)
