"Long ago, when great beasts roamed the land of Westeros, the seasons were thrown out of balance, creating a world where summers last decades and winters a lifetime. But now the summer of peace and plenty is drawing to a close, and the harsh, chill winter approaches like an angry beast. With the death of Robert Baratheon, the great ruler of the Seven Kingdoms, chaos erupts across the land, from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding walls of Winterfell, as pretenders to the crown prepare to stake their claims.As A Feast for Crows begins, two more rulers have died, releasing more unrest into the world.In the Iron Islands, the death of the Kraken Balon Greyjoy sets off a struggle for the Seastone Chair to rival that for the IronThrone. Of Balon's kin, who shall prevail? Euron, his proud and godless brother; the fearless, dutiful Victarion; or Asha, the Kraken's bold and headstrong daughter?At Casterly Rock, Lord Tywin Lannister has been murdered, the likely culprit his dwarf son, Tyrion. Queen Regent Cersei now finds herself at the center of power, with her weak young son the heir designate. Fearing Tyrion will come for her as foretold, she willdo whatever she must to avoid her doom.Oath-bound to Lady Catelyn, the Maid of Tarth seeks the thirteen-year-old daughter of Ned Stark, who has vanished without a trace. Brienne fears the child may be dead, her quest a cruel joke. But Sansa lives, posing as a lord's daughter. Entangled in a game ofmarital politics, she stands a chance of winning back all that her family has lost...if she survives.Continuing the vast and immensely compelling tale begun in A Game of Thrones, A Feast for Crows delivers on its promise: atruly sumptuous banquet that will leave you hungering for more.
