Before the series, there were the books. Here you will find the complete recap of all book reviews. Some are being read, others haven’t even been written. Be sure to come back often to read the reviews!
Series synopsis: the works collectively known as A Song of Ice and Fire are comprised of 7 books, two which remain unpublished. The story takes please in a fictional world with at least 3 known continents: Westeros, Essos, and Sothoryos and it begins 15 years after a rebellion led by Robert Baratheon against the ruling house of the Seven Kingdoms (in Westeros), house Targaryen. There are usually three major plotlines in the story, told by different POV characters: events across the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros that start from the death of the Hand of the King, Jon Arryn, and the appointment of a new Hand, Ned Stark. The next plotline takes place on The Wall, a man-made ice barrier structure built on the northernmost part of Westeros, manned by the Order of the Night’s Watch. This group protects the realm against threats happening north of The Wall. The last of these major plotlines takes place in the East and it follows the last surviving members of Targaryen house, more specifically the younger sister Daenerys Targaryen. This world draws a lot of parallels with actual historical conflicts from medieval Europe and combines them with fictional features such as how seasons in this world can last decades.
The published books have been adapted into a wildly acclaimed by critics and popular with audiences TV show called Game of Thrones.

Whether you have watch the series or not, the book is incredibly enticing. I always knew what would happen and yet that never spoilt the fun of reading! In fact it added to the excitement, especially about how the show captured of the story.
A Clash of Kings (Read review)
The second book is successful in moving the storyline further, only this is much slower than the first. Don’t let that deter you from reading. The truth is, it is a necessary step in the story for the madness that is about to ensue in the third part, A Storm of Swords.
