A Clash of Kings
A Clash of Kings: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book Two | George R. R. Martin
THE BOOK BEHIND THE SECOND SEASON OF GAME OF THRONES,AN ORIGINAL SERIES NOW ON HBO. A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE: BOOK TWO In this thrilling sequel to A Game of Thrones, George R. R. Martin has created a work of unsurpassed vision, power, and imagination. A Clash of Kings transports us to a world of revelry and revenge, wizardry and warfare unlike any we have ever experienced. A comet the color of blood and flame cuts across the sky. And from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns. Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war. It is a tale in which brother plots against brother and the dead rise to walk in the night. Here a princess masquerades as an orphan boy; a knight of the mind prepares a poison for a treacherous sorceress; and wild men descend from the Mountains of the Moon to ravage the countryside. Against a backdrop of incest and fratricide, alchemy and murder, victory may go to the men and women possessed of the coldest steel . . . and the coldest hearts. For when kings clash, the whole land trembles.

⭐️⭐️⭐️It is a decent read, however I think I am over the story line. I think I will be taking a longer break from the series than normal.🤷🏻‍♀️

One of my favorite lines from Tyrion Lannister, one of my favorite characters in Martin's series. A motto to aspire to, yet this week I couldn't wait to #snuggle up in my bed & pass out. Work has been really been draining lately, leaving little energy for reading. Definitely looking forward to this weekend AND the holiday weekend to get some quality reading in. 📚📚📚

George RR Martin always gives me new little gifts to enjoy as the books are, of course, more detailed than the TV series. I like them the same, though. On to the next one!

BayouGirl85 I have considered reading the Game of Thrones. 🤔🤔 2y
OrangeMooseReads @BayouGirl85 it‘s a time investment lol. If you like fantasy that feels like it could just be regular fiction I would say go for it. Clash of the Kings has A LOT more adult content (sex) than GoT did. Also I don‘t know if I personally would like it as much if I weren‘t listening to it. 2y

Clash of Kings maintains the high standards set in the series opener, A Game of Thrones. Characters that by now have become pleasantly familair. It's as hard hitting as ever, with Martin using tried and tested to powerful effect even if they do sometimes leave a slightly bitter taste. The book as a whole recieves my hearty recommendation. If you loved the first book, you will love this one too.

Finally finished! This one was good (of course 💁‍♀️) but not as good as the first book. I'm rewatching the series and I saw that Catelyn has a conversation with Jaime in season 1 that doesnt happen until almost the end of book 2! Loving finding these differences 😍

3.5 ⭐️- Big books don‘t scare ME! A Clash of Kings (book 2 in the Song of Ice and Fire - aka Game of Thrones) series is a behemoth of a book at 1069 pages. But this chick got through it like dragon glass through a White Walker. Ya, I did!

My review: https://bit.ly/AClashOfKingsReview

What big books have you made it though and lived to tell the tale?

Lesanne I have made it through the entire Song of Ice and Fire series, although it took darn near 20 years to do it! 😜 2y

Branwen @Lesanne Aren't they? 😍 @Trashcanman 🤗💕 @MoonWitch94 The first book has a full page black and white picture at the start of every chapter and there are also some fullcolor pictures throughout the book. The second book is a little different in that there are less black and white pictures for some reason? I like the first book's format better, but they are both really nice and totally worth it if you love the series! 2y
MoonWitch94 @Branwen thanks for the info 📚 I do love the series, so to it would be worth it 2y

Ugh Tyrion come on... No wonder the north prefers to have it's own king. They're the only people who understand what the north is really like and what they have to protect King's Landing from (if the Watch fails).

My gorgeous illustrated edition of A Clash of Kings came in today. I'm really happy that they seem to be rereleasing all of them in illustrated editions. I hate it when only the first book gets the fancy treatment. I'm a little OCD when matching books in a series.
There are nice colored maps for end pages and I love the illustrations. I usually prefer them in color but the black and whites are really fantastic. I'm not sure which I like better 💙

Oh boy let‘s be honest...

Some characters are MUCH more intriguing than others. I seriously could have skipped past some chapters and been okay with this one.

This story is still fun, and there are certainly memorable quotes and scenes as the fight continues for the real king to take throne.

I just could listen to Danaerys and Arya all day. There are also parts of Catelynn and Cersei that I enjoy. Some other (*cough* bran) mehhh...

MrT I gave up after the first book. Too many characters. Some you never hear of again and tbh the writing style is a lot to be desired. 2y
Naltez I totally agree with @MrT ... I couldn‘t get through book one and normally this is the type of thing I would love 2y

If not for the TV 📺 series, I wouldn‘t have been able to visualise the battle of blackwater description in the book. The books are a whole new thing, it is enriching my experience as a GoT hardcore fan. The entry of Ramsay Bolton is pure evil. And I just learnt Tyrion is a much better fighter than what‘s shown in the TV, he even fancies getting a knighthood from his brother Jamie 😀 how sweet! And Arya is Roose Bolton‘s cupbearer at Harrenhall 😮

BGam Such interesting names for ships. I was wondering if they were a whole new people being introduced, new dialogues or names of places. 😬 So many side characters, lords and princes, wards etc, I realised they were not required for me to keep in memory but some needed memorisation as I had to keep going back to recall the person. The book is huge but somehow the story grew on me and now I can‘t wait to start the Storm of Swords. 2y

There‘s something about ASOIF series- no matter how bulky it is, literally and figuratively, one can‘t put it down. As I read in one review, it‘s like a drug....the deeper you go, you want more and more of it. once you have it in your hand, you can‘t put it away 🤨
