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.

About the Edition

Le Trône de fer – Le Donjon rouge

Il était une fois, perdu dans un lointain passé, le royaume des Sept Couronnes… En ces temps nimbés de brume, où la belle saison pouvait durer des années, la mauvaise toute une vie d’homme, se multiplièrent un jour des présages alarmants. Au nord du Mur colossal qui protégeait le royaume, se massèrent soudain des forces obscures; au sud, l’ordre établi chancela, la luxure et l’inceste, le meurtre et la corruption, la lâcheté et le mensonge enserrèrent inexorablement le trône convoité. Dans la lignée des Rois maudits et d’Excalibur, Le Trône de fer plonge le lecteur, sans lui laisser reprendre souffle, dans un univers de délices et de feu. L’épique et le chevaleresque côtoient sans cesse le vil et le démoniaque. La bravoure et la loyauté se heurtent à la duplicité et à la fourberie. Mais dans ce tourbillon d’aventures cruelles, ce sont finalement l’amour, la tendresse, l’indestructible force de l’amitié qui rayonnent au-dessus des ténèbres.
