#2 in the Song of Ice & Fire Series
The second in George RR Martin’s Song of Ice & Fire series opens with four kings and one queen claiming the Iron Throne, and the novel follows as those players jockey for power. It’s a great second book – the stories move along at a good clip, and we learn so much more about the world we’re in and the characters that populate it.
