Now the world created by George RR Martin is not for the faint hearted, This book is the Lord of Rings on steroids......... and for adults...... and there is no holding back. The story is narrated by a series of Point of View (POV) characters which I think makes it all the more interesting. Although there are some characters I prefer to others it is still so useful to see the same events from different perspectives. The use of magic (which tends to be the key of fantasy books) is also quite limited which makes the story seem all the more realistic.
I am so looking forward to reading the rest of the novels in the series (the author is currently writing Book 6 out of a proposed 7 or possibly 8 books). In my excitement I have downloaded Books 1-4 although DH is trying to ban me from reading the rest while I am in Singapore (I shall ignore him hehe). I don't want to give away any of the plot but I would highly recommend this book. It is exciting, full of political intrigue and the human characters really come to life. It is also unusual in having a dwarf who is actually human (and not part of a different species) and he is one of the best characters in the book.
So my lovelies I would easily give this book 5/5 hearts. If you have read the book or watched the series please share your opinion in the comments.
Have a wonderful day!
