Pretenders to the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms stake their claims in George R. R. Martin’s A Clash of Kings, the stunning sequel to A Game of Thrones.
A comet streaks across the sky—a prophecy of destiny and doom. Fifteen-year-old Robb Stark is King in the North, and to his bannermen, the comet is a flag of vengeance against his father’s killers, while Lady Catelyn Stark fears it’s an omen of blood and defeat. Robb needs her counsel more than ever—if only she can remain strong.
In the south, King Joffrey Baratheon rules with a sadistic 13-year-old’s heart. His uncle Tyrion Lannister must use all his cunning to protect the realm and in the process do what not even his sister, Queen Cersei, expects of him. Justice.
At Dragonstone, Stannis Baratheon vows to make his stand as true heir to the throne. But even as he plots, his brother Renly seeks dominion.
A continent away, exiled queen and the Mother of Dragons Daenerys has lost her brother, her unborn son, her husband and the warriors who rode with him. Now, she must risk everything to win back the crown.
Against a backdrop of fealty and betrayal, the price of glory may be measured in blood. For when rulers clash, all the land bleeds.

I'll admit it, I got GoT in pb. I have heard so much about this series; I felt I needed to give it a try. Before I was 2/3rds of the way through, I was sold. I've ordered the entire 4 book series just to have on my shelf. I humbly disagree with complaints about the names or not feeling connected to the characters, GoT has been a nonstop rollercoaster ride and I can't wait for my set to arrive so it can continue. The intrigue, plots, sub plots are superb!! This is my jump back into fantasy (besides DiscWorld, but apples and oranges)in a long time... I couldn't have opted for a better return! I can't recommend this highly enough if you want a great story and characters, with out getting bogged down in a physics or a geneology lecture. Truly a fun read!!

It took me 1 week to read A Game of Thrones, it only took me 4 days to finish a clash of kings. The books are big but very engrossing which makes it hard to put down and go outside. The book begins right where Thrones left off so make sure you have read that first. Definitely one of the best fantasy series around. my favorite characters are Arya, Jon, and Tyrion.
