Or, as the series is called A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin. I am currently in the third book, A Storm of Swords and loving it. I know these books are long which may be intimidating to the average person and less than appealing if you are looking for a quick entertaining read. But, I have to say they are enjoyable and Martin is a genius. He really knows how to hook an audience and keep you wanting more. The first book, Game of Thrones, became popular by the TV Series (I have not watched this yet) and focuses on introducing the main characters and lets be honest, sex. The second book in the series, A Clash of Kings, focuses more on the war between the lands and how everyone has decided they should be king. Honestly, I am so glad we don’t have to deal with the formalities of a kingship, so many things to remember! The third book, A Storm of Swords, follows the Stark family, as well as others, as they continue their lives to reunite their family, their land and their honor. I know this is general and only covers a brief description of three of these lengthy novels, but, my hopes are that you will trust me enough to give them a shot!
