It is hard to give this a fair review as I had already seen the first season of the HBO series before I read the book (and the one is highly faithful to the other), and so I cannot be sure if I am letting my feelings for the one cloud my judgement. I still loved it, though. I'll probably have a better sense of how well the story stands on its own if I read the second book before I see the second season -- not that that is any consolation to you, dear review peruser. My best guess is that this book is highly enjoyable, and that Martin has created a richly detailed and fascinating world, and has included with it a great tale, so take that for what its worth. My deepest apologies.
