For the first time, all five novels in the epic fantasy series that inspired HBO’s Game of Thrones are together in one eBook bundle. An immersive entertainment experience unlike any other, A Song of Ice and Fire has earned George R. R. Martin—dubbed “the American Tolkien” by Time magazine—international acclaim and millions of loyal readers. Now this bundle collects the entire monumental cycle in the most convenient format available:
“One of the best series in the history of fantasy.”—Los Angeles Times
Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King’s Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert’s name. There his family dwells in peace and comfort: his proud wife, Catelyn; his sons Robb, Brandon, and Rickon; his daughters Sansa and Arya; and his bastard son, Jon Snow. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse—unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season.
Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances. Now Robert is riding north to Winterfell, bringing his queen, the lovely but cold Cersei, his son, the cruel, vainglorious Prince Joffrey, and the queen’s brothers Jaime and Tyrion of the powerful and wealthy House Lannister—the first a swordsman without equal, the second a dwarf whose stunted stature belies a brilliant mind. All are heading for Winterfell and a fateful encounter that will change the course of kingdoms.
Meanwhile, across the Narrow Sea, Prince Viserys, heir of the fallen House Targaryen, which once ruled all of Westeros, schemes to reclaim the throne with an army of barbarian Dothraki—whose loyalty he will purchase in the only coin left to him: his beautiful yet innocent sister, Daenerys.
“Long live George Martin . . . a literary dervish, enthralled by complicated characters and vivid language, and bursting with the wild vision of the very best tale tellers.”—The New York Times


  • A song of ice and fire

    I find that this book is really great from the depth and detail of the world itself to the intensity of how the houses and history make changes to the book now. Daenerys is definitely my favorite character talk about mother of dragons.

  • Name the chapters accordingly!!!

    By Mzwakithi
    The way the chapters are numbered in this iBook collection is VERY frustrating! The character names & chapter number would be ideal -- please update this and I'll update my review accordingly.
  • Best book series ever

    By Gameripodtouch
    George RR Martin is a genius this is by far the best fantasy series ever written. He definitely beats Tolkien in many ways. Can't wait for The Winds of Winter.
  • Unreal unrelenting unbelievable unstoppable

    By Asoiaf king
    This is the most amazing unbelievable series I have ever read . GRRM wrote the best fantasy series of our time . I started with the show and I found the books to be much more riveting . It truly draws you in and doesn't let go . Every chapter has an importance to it . Everyone says there's no many characters and that GRRM goes into to much detail about each character but it each character has some sort of importance to the story even the most minor characters . It truly makes for a great read . Highly recommend this series to anyone who watches the show and to people who hasn't seen the show I would tell to read the books first . Also with two more books to come out in the series . I can't wait to see where GRRM take his great series next . Winds of Winter can't come soon enough , and A Dream of Spring is way to far away that I hope he's still alive to finish . It would be a shame if he passes before the end of the series . And has to have people finish the series for him off his notes .
  • Greatest Fantasy Series Ever Written!

    By Tctfunose
    You will laugh and you will cry. You will feel disgusted and you will feel memorized by the beauty described. You will have nightmares and sometimes you will jump for joy and excitement. These books are a journey of mystery, love, and hate. They embody reality and life. People complain about the plot building but all the chapters have something important in them. Have you ever read any Anne Rice books? They are really good but she goes on and on about details making it hard to be into them. This is not the case in ASOIAF.
  • A Great book for story and studying

    This is a trully awesome book not only to enjoy the storyline and plotting, but also to study english vocabulary as a foreigner.
  • Amazing

    By SpicyAsianBoy
    Great book series, absolutely love it. However, if you're a Game of Thrones watcher, I would wait until that's finished. I absolutely loved the show, but reading the books has diminished the show. You should wait until that's over in my opinion before you start reading this. Only complaint is the chapters on this iBook don't have names, just numbers.
  • Does not live up to the hype

    By Tashaww
    VERY surprised to see that no one else agrees. These books are far to long based on their content. They are long and slow and very boring. Martin describes basically every tree in unnecessary and excruciating detail... Honestly he doesn't even do a great job of it either, someone should really give George a thesaurus! To give him the benefit of the doubt I even continued on to see if the other books got better and they didn't. The few parts where there is action are so few and far between that I find myself drifting off unable to retain. Also as a side note, if you want to try to listen instead, it would be a great way to put yourself to sleep. WORST AUDIO BOOK READER EVER.
