A Clash of Kings [9780008363741]

(3 reviews) Write a Review

Continuing the celebration of the twentieth anniversary of George R.R. Martin's landmark series, this gorgeously illustrated special edition of A Clash of Kings features over twenty all-new illustrations from Lauren K. Cannon, both colour and black-and-white, and a special foreword by Bernard Cornwell.

The Iron Throne once united the Sunset Lands, but King Robert is dead, his widow is a traitor to his memory, and his surviving brothers are set on a path of war amongst themselves.

At King's Landing, the head of Lord Eddard Stark rots on a spike for all to see. His daughter Sansa is betrothed still to his killer's son Joffrey - Queen Cersei's son, though not the son of her late husband Robert.

Even so, Joffrey is now a boy-king, Cersei is his regent, and war is inevitable.

In Dragonstone, Robert's brother Stannis has declared himself king, while his other brother Renly proclaims himself king at Storm's End - and Eddard Stark's fifteen year old son Robb wears the crown of the north at Winterfell.

A comet in the night sky, red and malevolent, the colour of blood and flame, can only be an omen of murder and war. Stannis's child Princess Shireen dreams of dragons waking from stone. And a white raven has brought word from the Citadel itself, foretelling summer's end.

It has been the longest summer in living memory, lasting ten years, and the smallfolk say it means an even longer winter to come...

The first rule of war is never give the enemy his wish. But winter will be the biggest enemy. From beyond the Wall the undead and Others clamour for freedom, and from beyond the sea the long-dead Dragon King's daughter hatches her revenge.

Robb Stark will be exceedingly lucky to reach adulthood.

    A Clash of Kings

    Posted by Amy on 5th Jan 2021

    This made a wonderful Christmas present, it's a beautiful edition in terms of both the hardback cover and the illustrations. I'm so happy I came across it, thank you! And of course having already read all the Game of Thrones books that are currently out, I can highly recommend the book itself too, George RR Martin is a genius.

    Item arrived in perfect condition, delivered in good timing. I have yet to reread this book but have already flicked through the images which are placed throughout, all of which are great to look at which capture the characters perfectly. Would recommend.
