All hail the new king of fantasy!!! Martin's 2nd book is even better than the first masterpiece. The amazing characters that you care about and love make a triumphant return in "A Clash of Kings". Martin takes risks by making this series extremely realistic, but it pays off big time. The characters are breathtaking, your opinion often changes about them as you learn more and sometimes you don't know which side of the epic struggle between the Lannister and the Stark families to cheer for. In Martin's world, there are no black and white characters, there's no good and bad, but grey. Most characters would do terrible things along with honorable things if they had the chance. This book really takes you away from reality. Every chapter is brilliant, especially the amazing and brutal battle scene in the end. During the battle, Tyrion admires the bravery of his opponents and says, "those are some brave men. Let's go kill them!". My favorite quote of all time. Anyway, buy this, love it and cherish it.

A Clash of Kings is.... beyond all fantasy writing. If you are reading this review, put down the Robert Jordan right now, drive to the nearest bookstore and buy both books of the Song of Ice and Fire series. It is the best. IT is the closest thing to non-fiction there is. No, cliche hero garbage in these books. Its so... bloody real. The plot is so interweaved, i dont understand how Martin keeps it together. IM not kidding when i say the best. IVe read Goodkind and JOrdan, these books are simply better. If you dont think so... you must be false metal or something . Hail!

Following "A Game of Thrones", George Martin provided us with another oeuvre of epic fantasy, the sequel "A Clash of Kings". Unlike, for example, Robert Jordan, George Martin keeps a tight grip on his brilliant plot and amazingly real characters.
