A STORM OF SWORDS Of the five contenders for power, one is dead, another in disfavor, and still the wars rage as violently as ever, as alliances are made and broken. Joffrey, of House Lannister, sits on the Iron Throne, the uneasy ruler of the land of the Seven Kingdoms. His most bitter rival, Lord Stannis, stands defeated and disgraced, the victim of the jealous sorceress who holds him in her evil thrall. But young Robb, of House Stark, still rules the North from the fortress of Riverrun. Robb plots against his despised Lannister enemies, even as they hold his sister hostage at King’s Landing, the seat of the Iron Throne. Meanwhile, making her way across a blood-drenched continent is the exiled queen, Daenerys, mistress of the only three dragons still left in the world. . . . But as opposing forces maneuver for the final titanic showdown, an army of barbaric wildlings arrives from the outermost line of civilization. In their vanguard is a horde of mythical Others--a supernatural army of the living dead whose animated corpses are unstoppable. As the future of the land hangs in the balance, no one will rest until the Seven Kingdoms have exploded in a veritable storm of swords. . . . From the Paperback edition.

Mystery, intrigue, romance, and adventure fill the pages of this magnificent saga, the first volume in an epic series sure to delight fantasy fans everywhere. A GAME OF THRONES A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE: BOOK ONE Long ago, in a time forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons out of balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister forces are massing beyond the kingdom’s protective Wall. To the south, the king’s powers are failing—his most trusted adviser dead under mysterious circumstances and his enemies emerging from the shadows of the throne. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the frozen land they were born to. Now Lord Eddard Stark is reluctantly summoned to serve as the king’s new Hand, an appointment that threatens to sunder not only his family but the kingdom itself. Sweeping from a harsh land of cold to a summertime kingdom of epicurean plenty, A Game of Thrones tells a tale of lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and bastards, who come together in a time of grim omens. Here an enigmatic band of warriors bear swords of no human metal; a tribe of fierce wildlings carry men off into madness; a cruel young dragon prince barters his sister to win back his throne; a child is lost in the twilight between life and death; and a determined woman undertakes a treacherous journey to protect all she holds dear. Amid plots and counter-plots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, allies and enemies, the fate of the Starks hangs perilously in the balance, as each side endeavors to win that deadliest of conflicts: the game of thrones. Unparalleled in scope and execution, A Game of Thrones is one of those rare reading experiences that catch you up from the opening pages, won’t let you go until the end, and leave you yearning for more.
THE BOOK BEHIND THE FOURTH SEASON OF THE ACCLAIMED HBO SERIES GAME OF THRONES Few books have captivated the imagination and won the devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as has George R. R. Martin’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 CROWS 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 King’s Landing. Robb Stark’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 exist—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 faces—some familiar, others only just appearing—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 guests—but only a few are the survivors. From the Hardcover edition.
Das zornige Meer, die rote Wüste, die unbarmherzige Natur – dafür ist der australische Schriftsteller Tim Winton berühmt, in seinen Geschichten ist der Mensch immer auch ein Ausgesetzter. In seinem neuen Roman erzählt er die Geschichte eines ehemaligen Umweltaktivisten, dessen Dasein gescheitert ist und der, gerade als er zu verzweifeln droht, eine neue Aufgabe für sich und vielleicht auch wieder Sinn und Hoffnung für sein Leben findet. Tom Keely hat mehr als nur eine Midlife-Crisis: Einst bekannter und überzeugter Umweltaktivist, hat er nun, mit Mitte vierzig, durch einen Skandal seinen Job verloren, nebenbei seine Ehe zerstört und will mit der Welt nichts mehr zu tun haben. Alkohol und Tabletten helfen ihm zu vergessen, was schiefgelaufen ist. Er lebt in einem Apartmenthochhaus in Fremantle, einer schäbigen Hafenstadt in der Nähe von Perth, Westaustralien, und dort sieht er täglich vor seiner Haustür, was Gier und Korruption im großen und Gewaltverbrechen und Drogenhandel im kleinen Maßstab aus der Stadt und seinem Land gemacht haben. Als plötzlich Gemma Buck, eine alte Bekannte aus seiner Kindheit, in das Hochhaus einzieht, wird Tom aus seiner Abwärtsspirale gerissen; vor allem Gemmas sechsjähriger Enkel Kai, ein hochsensibler, verstörter Junge, den Gemma aufzieht, weil seine Mutter im Gefängnis sitzt, weckt Gefühle und Kräfte in Tom, die er längst verloren glaubte. Um jeden Preis versucht er, Gemma und Kai vor weiteren Katastrophen in ihrem prekären Leben zu beschützen. Und es scheint, als könnte diese merkwürdige kleine Familie entgegen aller Erwartung alte Wunden heilen und das Leben wieder lebenswert machen ...
