A Clash of Kings – George R.R. Martin (1998)


The second book in The Song of Fire and Ice Series follows where A Game of Thrones leaves off. Martin continues to follow the Houses of Stark, Lannister, Targaryen, and Baratheon, among many others, and brings forth a new point of view character in Davos Seaworth, the Onion Knight. Following the deaths of the King and The Hand of The King in the first book, all hell breaks loose on Westeros with a handful of men claiming the title of King and leading sundry rebellions against Joffrey Baratheon and his Lannister family. I found the pages so engaging that though Martin’s books are heavy, (around 1000 pages each) it was a quick read, as I could not put it down. The fantastical world created within are so amazingly unreal, and yet so glitteringly and jarringly visual, the reader becomes fully immersed in the Seven Kingdoms, and the world beyond The Wall. I would highly recommend this series to fans of fantasy novels, whether you enjoy the tv series or not. (967 pages)
