I can't belive I waited so long to read this!

King Robert is up to his jowls in Lannisters. The Lannister Clan is rich, mean, powerful– and very ambitious. His wife Cersei is a prime example. Every high office at court that she can wheedle out him goes to one of her kin. Her twin brother is suspiciously dear to her and not one of her three children look a thing like him (Robert).

Ned Stark was a boyhood friend of the King, Robert Baratheon. That friendship will call him away from wife, home and family to serve as the Hand of the King. While it's not a position Ned ever desired and one filled with court intrigue, he feels obligated to do his best.

The small council of the Realm is charged with the security and stewardship of the Seven Kingdoms, but Ned soon learns there’s not a penny in the royal purse. Robert has squandered the treasury and is now in heavy debt to his father-in-law, Tywin Lannister. When Ned tries to set matters to rights he meets more than opposition, what he learns about the queen sets his life and lives of all his loves at the edge of a sword.

Season One of this series has aired on TV, and season two (based on the second book of the series) is in the works. If you love Epic Fantasy with a Lord of the Rings scope – you have to read Game of Thrones.

And remember –Winter is coming!

Soon to be released as an HBO series, this is one of my all-time favorite books. It is a fantasy set in a medieval world where court intrigue is rife, plot twists are numerous and unexpected, and the characters are complex and all too human. When the Hand of the King, Jon Arryn, dies suddenly, Ned Stark is called to take his place by the man, now King, who was his boyhood friend. Ned suspects there was more to the Hand’s death than a sudden illness and he begins to retrace Arryn’s steps in his last days, he becomes even more convinced there was foul play involved. The other three books in the series, A Song of Ice and Fire, as yet unfinished, are almost as good.
