Review: A Clash Of Kings (Book Two of A Song Of Ice And Fire) By: George RR Martin

A Clash of Kings (A Song of Ice and Fire, #2)A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

"...permit me to share a bit of womanly wisdom with you on this very special day. Love is poison. A sweet poison, yes, but it will kill you all the same."

What is it within the seven kingdoms that most love - to be King. As the battles continue, men are crowning themselve and calling themselves king. They bring with them enemies and battles that ring throughout the lands that once were held in peace.

This was amazing and filled with adventure bringing the stories from Jon Snow, who is beyond the Wall, to Daenerys in Qarth - with a boy king, Joffrey (the result of incest), so many are in want of removing the crown from his head and placing it upon theirs.

Heroes come from unlikely places and great men fall, but through it all there is something to this story that brings forth a depth of the individuals and the whole of the actions. If you are looking for adventure, here it is, looking for fantasy, here it is, looking for unforgettable characters, here it is, looking for depth, here it is, and looking for a book that holds more meaning within the pages than the words themselves, this is it.

I want more of this series and can't wait to pick up the next in the series.
