I have a confession. I love epic fantasy series. This one has been on my to-read list for a long, long time. And it delivers. I breezed through it in a couple days and can't wait to continue onto the next book.

What keeps this from getting five stars are the too-frequent rape scenes. That's my only real complaint. They get to me, and I think they're treated a little too casually. I just think there are other ways to get across the point that this is a dangerous world.

I'm interested to see who Martin kills off in Clash of Kings, and based on this book, I'll be he isn't afraid to kill off main characters. I hope it's Sansa, for one.
