One of the best series in the history of fantasy.--Los Angeles Times

Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King's Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert's name. There his family dwells in peace and comfort: his proud wife, Catelyn; his sons Robb, Brandon, and Rickon; his daughters Sansa and Arya; and his bastard son, Jon Snow. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse--unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season.

Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances. Now Robert is riding north to Winterfell, bringing his queen, the lovely but cold Cersei, his son, the cruel, vainglorious Prince Joffrey, and the queen's brothers Jaime and Tyrion of the powerful and wealthy House Lannister--the first a swordsman without equal, the second a dwarf whose stunted stature belies a brilliant mind. All are heading for Winterfell and a fateful encounter that will change the course of kingdoms.

Meanwhile, across the Narrow Sea, Prince Viserys, heir of the fallen House Targaryen, which once ruled all of Westeros, schemes to reclaim the throne with an army of barbarian Dothraki--whose loyalty he will purchase in the only coin left to him: his beautiful yet innocent sister, Daenerys.

Long live George Martin . . . a literary dervish, enthralled by complicated characters and vivid language, and bursting with the wild vision of the very best tale tellers.--The New York Times

What buyers are saying
You can't beat the price on this package. If you've been thinking about it, now's the time to buy. This series appeals to more than just fantasy lovers. It lures you in with humanity, political intrigue, massive piles of character development, heartbreak, triumphs, and dragons.I'd been urged to read the books because I'd \"Like them if I tried them. inch After the first episode of the show aired, I borrowed them immediately and plowed through every book that was available. Now that Dance with Dragons is in paperback, I decided to buy this pack to hold me over until the next book.If you consider yourself a casual reader, don't be daunted by these thousand-page monsters. You'll eat them up and be hungry for more before you know it. And since they're in paperback, you can tote them around with you and plunge your nose into them whenever you get the chance. Difficult to do that with the massive hardback editions.Again, I can't stress how great this price is. The individual MSRP for these is $9.99 each.If you have any interest in the TV show or are just looking for something new to read, this is definitely something you want to add to your cart.
