A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin, 694 pages
This is a series that is getting a lot of attention because of the HBO show based on the books. It is an epic series that reminds me a lot of Robert Jordan's Eye of the World series. It's a world where summers last for years and winter can last for decades. There seems to be a plot to overthrow the king, but the question is where is the threat coming from. With treachery and intrigue, direwolves and dragons, lords and knights, this series promises to be filled with lots of excitement and adventure. This book was a little slow at times but I think this first book was laying a lot of groundwork for the following books.
