Many are familiar with the HBO T.V. Series A Game of Thrones, but all good stories start with a book.  Five in fact, with 2 more on the way.  The books that launched the famous series are loaded with even richer detail, events and characters you love, hate, love to hate and even hate to love! Each chapter is told through the perspective of one of the chosen point-of-view characters allowing you to explore Westeros through their eyes and experiences! Of course the books are big, but so is the story, and you'll find yourself sailing through chapter after chapter as you lose yourself in the plot lines!
