A Storm of Swords (A Song of Ice and Fire #3) by George R.R. Martin
George R.R. Martin takes us again to the world of fantasy with this third volume in the wonderful collection of novels. In this magnificent imaginative fictitious installment, one of the most powerful contenders for power lies a corpse, another in disfavor, and worst of all, the wars still rage as alliances are formed and broken. On the other side, the troubled ruler of the Seven Kingdoms Joffrey sits on the Iron Throne, whereas his resentful rival, Lord Stannis, stands defeated and disgraced and to make matters worse, still a victim of the witch who holds him in her thrall. The mother of the only three living dragons in the world. Meanwhile, the opposing forces steer up for the final showdown, an army of the vicious wildlings arrives accompanied by a horde of a supernatural army of the living dead whose animated corpses can’t be stopped. As the struggle for power continues, alliances are broken, hatred roams, the future of the entire land in balance and no one will rest until the Seven Kingdoms have become a prey for the veritable storm of swords.
