Sprawling, epic, otherworldly, fantastical. The immense scope of George R.R. Martin’s world is impossible to grasp without delving headlong into this first volume of his as yet unfinished masterpiece of a series. At the heart of the story are unforgettable characters and a plot that weaves an intricate web of deceit, love, revenge, power and family dynamics. Combined, they make it both profoundly powerful and eminently relatable on a human level.
The complete, unabridged audiobook of A Game of Thrones.
HBO’s hit series A Game of Thrones is based on George R. R. Martin’s internationally best-selling series A Song of Ice and Fire, the greatest fantasy epic of the modern age. A Game of Thrones is the first volume in the series.
Summers span decades. Winter can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun.
As Warden of the north, Lord Eddard Stark counts it a curse when King Robert bestows on him the office of the Hand. His honour weighs him down at court where a true man does what he will, not what he must…and a dead enemy is a thing of beauty.
The old gods have no power in the south, Stark’s family is split and there is treachery at court. Worse, the vengeance-mad heir of the deposed Dragon King has grown to maturity in exile in the Free Cities. He claims the Iron Throne.
