A GAME OF THRONES

Long ago, in a time forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons out of balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister and supernatural forces are massing beyond the kingdom’s protective Wall. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the land they were born to. Sweeping from a land of brutal cold to a distant summertime kingdom of epicurean plenty, here is a tale of lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and bastards, who come together in a time of grim omens.

Here an enigmatic band of warriors bear swords of no human metal; a tribe of fierce wildlings carry men off into madness; a cruel young dragon prince barters his sister to win back his throne; and a determined woman undertakes the most treacherous of journeys. Amid plots and counterplots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, the fate of the Starks, their allies, and their enemies hangs perilously in the balance, as each endeavors to win that deadliest of conflicts: the game of thrones.

Edition Notes

Em uma terra onde o verão pode durar décadas e o inverno toda uma vida, os problemas estão apenas começando. O frio está de volta e, nas florestas ao norte de Winterfell, forças sobrenaturais se espalham por trás da Muralha que protege a região. No centro do conflito estão os Stark do reino de Winterfell, uma família tão áspera quanto as terras que lhe pertencem.

Dos lugares onde o frio é brutal, até os distantes reinos de plenitude e sol, George R.R. Martin narra uma história de lordes e damas, soldados e mercenários, assassinos e bastardos, que se juntam em um tempo de presságios malignos. Entre disputas por reinos, tragédias e traições, vitória e terror, o destino dos Stark, seus aliados e seus inimigos é incerto. Mas cada um está se esforçando para ganhar este conflito mortal: a guerra dos tronos.
