La novela río más espectacular jamás escrita

Las huestes de los fugaces reyes de Poniente, descompuestas en hordas, asuelan y esquilman una tierra castigada por la guerra e indefensa ante un invierno que se anuncia inusitadamente crudo. Las alianzas nacen y se desvanecen como volutas de humo bajo el viento helado del Norte. Ajena a las intrigas palaciegas, e ignorante del a

Okay. You know what time it is (besides 9.00 p.m. on a Tuesday night) - ASoIaF gif reaction time!

So, after an extended break after reading A Clash of Kings, it was time to jump into A Storm of Swords.

Recommends it for: people who've read the rest of the series
Recommended to Shovelmonkey1 by: books 1-3 demanded that the fourth was read
Do you remember that bit in the Scream movie where Stu Macher (played by Matthew Lillard), turns to all the other film geeks and sets out the now famed set of rules for surviving a horror film and making it into the sequel? (FYI those rules were: Never have sex. Do not drink and never say “i’ll be right back”)

Well someone should be writing a similar set of rules for the characters in the Song of Fire and Ice Series because, oh boy are these guys in trouble. Despite the numerous sellswords, hedge
This is the ending that book three should have had. The first half, A Storm of Swords: Steel and Snow, just wasn't strong enough to stand on its own. But that's okay as the second half more than makes up for it. From the off, there are bodies. Not just secondary characters either, but people we thought were going to be key players in The Game.

A number of characters get built out a lot more as well. Jamie continues his transition to three-dimensions with the start of a conscience. Stannis starts
Oh my bloody hell and fuck...

Dear George,

I have read A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, and A Storm of Swords one after another and in any spare moment over the last couple of months. As a result, I think that this reality is starting to take over. My emotional involvement in the lives of your characters is reaching an unhealthy depth, and your brutality with them is breaking my motherfucking heart. I just finished ASOS a moment ago, and said motherfucking heart is beating some serious drum an
My favourite book of the series so far! I will not ruin it for anybody, but this book turned me into an emotional reck in the best and worse possible ways. It gave me moments were I found myself jumping round like a child who actually did get a pony for christmas, moments when I bawled like a baby and finally, moments when I was yelling my head off, threatening to never read another page and swearing like a banshee. This series needs to form part of everyone's life - it is so unpredictable and e ...more

I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW TO BEGIN TO REVIEW THIS BOOK. I NEED TO CRY FIRST. SQUALL ACTUALLY, LIKE A MURDERED ZUCCHINI BECAUSE OMG. NO AND YES AND NOOOOOOO. *breaks down* All you really need to know is that every book is better than the last and this is probably my favourite book yet. It was so incredible. So many plot twists. We got answers for questions in bk 1 like a) who killed John Erand and b) who tried to kill Bran with the knife. There were horrific deaths. Like REALLY REALLY BAD. I'm absolu ...more

Allow me to finally applaud you, George R.R. Martin without apprehension or dissatisfaction, without a hint of weariness or disappointment. Allow me to finally pass beyond the "I want to love it, but I don't" into "I was swept away by fire and ice and I ascend now as a different woman".

My favourite things about this book:
1) Jon Snow's every move (the light of my heart)
2) Jaime's journey to discover morals, honor and true love

Now, I can't tell you what it was about this i

Dieser Teil hat mir bisher bei weitem am besten gefallen! Es ist so unfassbar viel passiert und ich bin aus dem Staunen gar nicht rausgekommen. Absolut geil!

"Always keep your foes confused. If they are never certain who you are or what you want, they cannot know what you are like to do next."
This book is pure genius. It made me wince in pain when a few of my favourite characters were murdered. It made me dizzy with joy when my most despised and hated character was murdered. And it made me feel all the little things in between during the whole span of A Storm of Swords.

Even though I knew what was going to happen, I was SO not prepared for any of this. This installment is by far my favourite so far!

Rating: 5/5

This book was absolutely amazing. Granted it's the second part of book 3 so it was expected to have more action and shocking moments than the first part. So many deaths, so many twists and turns, so many freaky and unexpected things. I loved this. I've also watched the third season along side reading this. This one moves the story even further ahead, I am guessing midway through the 4th season for some characters. I really want to see what will happen next, but I don't know when I'll
It has taken a while, but Martin's world is finally in its maturity. All of the seeds he has planted in the first two books have grown into cut-throat plots and killer conclusions. Martin's writing style is still dry, but the trials he puts his characters through made me forget that A Storm of Swords isn't perfect. This is the first volume of the Song of Ice and Fire series that I managed to read in little over two weeks - usually these take me at least a few months. My favourite book in the ser ...more
Dear me...I have finished the last 150 or so pages full of a cold, banging headache etc, ever tried reading and concentrating whilst afflicted like this, tough isn't it...but I HAD to keep reading!! I loved the first books but this has got to be the best one for me so far purely because of all the events that happen, astounding is maybe a poor description? Shocking is maybe a better word, genuine shocks all over the place, wow, I'm rambling (Damn headache). Fully deserved 5 star rating and that ...more
Chapeau Mr. Martin, you wrote another brilliant book and I love it as no other book in this series so far. It's almost impossible to give a non-spoilerish review and everything I've said about this series before also counts for this book: great writing, twists and turns, unpredictable, an enormous amount of characters and confusing background stories and it is very very captivating.

What can I say?! You know while reading that something is going to happen, but most of the time you have no idea ho
I highly recommend A Storm of Swords.

I am a Stark of Winterfell. Oh yes, I am.

I should've learned my lesson from A Game of Thrones, that anything and everything will never be what it seems.

A Storm of Swords left me open-mouthed (literally), especially when the Red Wedding took place. There I was, reading leisurely on a Sunday afternoon, when I got the shock of my ASoIaF reading life. So cruel! And yet so grudgingly cunning.

New POVs are introduced: Jaime Lannister and Samwell Tarly. I actually e
Rob Stark is now married and has taken the title of King of the north. He is still facing his enemies though in the courts and on the battle fields. As he moves across country he is looking to build alliances and friendships and strengthen his power and influence in the Game of Thrones.

His sisters are still alive too; Sansa is married to the Imp, but is trapped in Kings Landing by the Lannisters, and is subject to their whims and the internal family struggles. Arya is still partially captive, an
Wow, just wow! Without any doubt the best part of the saga so far! It starts out as slow and dragging as the previous two parts… and then it becomes a real jaw-dropper!

So, where to begin?? There are simply too many terrific characters, storylines and moments in this book!!!

Dos seis volumes lidos até agora, este poderá ter sido o melhor e também o pior. Foi um rebuliço de emoções do princípio ao fim. GRRM manteve a tradição de aliar uma escrita sublime a um enredo arrebatador. Chateou-me com tantas mortes, tanta crueldade (algumas até que me divertiram e foram pura justiça poética) sobretudo porque a continuação da história vai ter que sofrer uma viragem com a falta de tantas personagens. Surgirão outras é certo, mas duvido que me conquistem da mesma forma, acho qu ...more

I wasn't going to review any of the Song of Ice and Fire books as I joined Goodreads after I began the series. I'm picky enough to believe I either review all of the books or non at all. However, I feel I had to leave word for this installment because I could not put it down whatsoever.

Though I've already seen the TV series (Season 3 and 4 being based on this book), I still found myself in awe and amazement. People who believe they will get the full experience from just watching the programmes o
Depois do choque da 4ª temporada da série, estava com muita curiosidade para ler sobre o tão malfadado casamento vermelho, e outras cenas, não tão chocantes, mas igualmente bem orquestradas. A cena da latrina, por exemplo, é de rir! Então aquela última divagação do Tyrion... priceless! O livro teve um início lento, mas quando apanhou ritmo, foi tudo à frente. E quando digo tudo, é mesmo TUDO! Gosto de autores que não estão com meias-medidas, e arriscam sem medo de perder. Os capítulos da Khalees ...more

Okay I take back what I said about the last book because this one is now officially my favourite! (Although I have a feeling I'm probably going to say that about each book left in the series)

This series never fails to surprise me and most of the time I find myself reading it thinking 'seriously George R.R Martin, how do you create a world as complex as this one?!'
Honestly though, the whole world that this guy has created feels so real, like there's a history to every single detail, I honestly do

I don't have the first idea how to start reviewing this book. Well, I do, but I'm quite physically and mentally exhuasted from the reading of this book to feel inclined to dissect the matter contained within. So instead, I'm going to write an emotive review.


It's really a continuation of the ideas and themes from the first two novels. If there's a difference, though, it's that Martin clearly felt he'd done a lot of grandiose stuff with the Battle at King's Landing an
O sexto livro das Crónicas do Gelo e Fogo é uma verdadeira caixa de surpresas, algumas boas, outras nem por isso... O nome do livro, “A Glória dos Traidores” faz jus à obra, traição é o que mais existe ao longo da história narrada.
A nossa história prossegue mas ao contrário dos outros livros, existem imensos acontecimentos marcantes ao longo do mesmo. Desvendam-se alguns segredos, algumas personalidades e algumas traições. São várias as personagens que tem um grande avanço na sua história.
Ciarán West
Christ on a segway, this book was so full of plot, I think G.R.R. Martin was told that he was going to die in six months, and put everything that could have possibly happened ever into the second half. There are LITERALLY no characters left alive, apart from the ones who are left alive, and even then, those characters are probably dead, but they just don't know it yet; like Bruce Willis in The Sixth Sense.

Warning, that last paragraph might have contained spoilers. Except it didn't, really. Becau
