`Colossal, staggering... Martin captures all the intoxicating complexity of the Wars of the Roses or Imperial Rome in his imaginary world ... one of the greats of fantasy literature' SFX `This is one of those rare and effortless reads' ROBIN HOBB `George R.R. Martin is one of our very best writers, and this is one of his very best books' RAYMOND E. FEIST `Such a splendid tale. I read my eyes out - I couldn't stop till I'd finished and it was dawn' ANNE MCCAFFREY `George Martin is assuredly a new master craftsman in the guild of heroic fantasy' KATHARINE KERR `Few created worlds are as imaginative and diverse' JANNY WURTS
New York Times best-selling author and television screenwriter and producer Martin continues his fantasy epic of the mythic Seven Kingdoms in this fourth installment of "A Song of Fire and Ice." The War of the Five Kings is winding down and there's a lull in the action, as many surviving characters from earlier installments are absent. Tony Award-winning British actor Roy Dotrice provides a clear and engaging narration of this tale of power, politics, and people. Feast has a sense of bleakness and disjointedness, with slow-moving plotlines. VERDICT Of interest to fans of fantasy, adventure, and the HBO series. ["A must-purchase for libraries owning the series, this panoramic fantasy adventure is highly recommended," read the review of the Spectra: Bantam hc, LJ 11/15/05.-Ed.]-Denise A.
