A Game of Thrones: This is the first book in A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin.

Very long time ago, a preternatural event threw seasons out of balance such that summers can last for decades and winters even for a lifetime. The winter is returning, and beyond the frozen wastes all the way to the north of Winterfell evil forces are forming beyond the kingdom wall. On the other hand to the south, the king’s authority is failing, and enemies are emerging from the shadows of the throne. In the midst of the conflict lies the Starks of Winterfell. Lord Eddard Stark is called in to serve as the king’s new Hand, but this appointment not only puts Eddard at risk but the whole kingdom at large.

A Game of Thrones narrates a tale of lords, soldiers, ladies, assassins, sorcerers, and bastards, who come together during a time of grim omens.

A Storm of Swords: A Storm of Swords is the third book in A Song of Ice and Fire Series, a series that forms a genuine masterpiece of the modern fantasy, fated to stand as one of the greatest achievement of imaginative fiction.

Of the five contestants for power, the other is in disfavor, but still, the war rages on as alliances are made and broken. Joffrey, the ruler of the seven kingdoms, sits on the Iron Throne. His rival Lord Stannis stood disgraced and defeated a victim of the sorceress who holds him in her grip.

Young Robb is still the ruler of the North starting from the fortress of Riverrun. Daenerys is the exiled queen and the mistress of the remaining three dragons in the world. While the opposing forces maneuver for a showdown, an army of wildlings arrive accompanied by a supernatural army of the dead who are unstoppable, and no one will rest until the 7 Kingdoms are shattered.
