Few books have captivated the imagination and won the
devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as
has George R. R. Martinâ€™s monumental epic cycle of high
fantasy. Now, in A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers
the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a
kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of
peace...only to be launched on an even more terrifying
course of destruction.
A Feast for
It seems too good to be true. After
centuries of bitter strife and fatal treachery, the seven
powers dividing the land have decimated one another into
an uneasy truce. Or so it appears....
With the death of the
monstrous King Joffrey, Cersei is ruling as regent in
Kingâ€™s Landing. Robb Starkâ€™s demise has broken the back of
the Northern rebels, and his siblings are scattered
throughout the kingdom like seeds on barren soil. Few
legitimate claims to the once desperately sought Iron
Throne still existâ€”or they are held in hands too weak or
too distant to wield them effectively. The war, which
raged out of control for so long, has burned itself out.
But as in the aftermath of any climactic struggle,
it is not long before the survivors, outlaws, renegades,
and carrion eaters start to gather, picking over the bones
of the dead and fighting for the spoils of the soon-to-be
dead. Now in the Seven Kingdoms, as the human crows
assemble over a banquet of ashes, daring new plots and
dangerous new alliances are formed, while surprising facesâ€”
some familiar, others only just appearingâ€”are seen
emerging from an ominous twilight of past struggles and
chaos to take up the challenges ahead.
It is a
time when the wise and the ambitious, the deceitful and
the strong will acquire the skills, the power, and the
magic to survive the stark and terrible times that lie
before them. It is a time for nobles and commoners,
soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and sages to come
together and stake their fortunes...and their lives. For
at a feast for crows, many are the guestsâ€”but only a few
are the survivors.
