Few books have captivated the imagination and won the devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as has George R. R. Martins monumental epic cycle of high fantasy. Now, in A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of peace...only to be launched on an even more terrifying course of destruction.
'Long-awaited doesn't begin to describe this fourth installment in bestseller Martin's staggeringly epic Song of Ice and Fire.....This is not Act I Scene 4 but Act II Scene 1, laying groundwork more than advancing the plot, and it sorely misses its other half. The slim pickings here are tasty, but in no way satisfying.' - PW.

"This is not Act I Scene 4 but Act II Scene 1, laying groundwork more than advancing the plot, and it sorely misses its other half. The slim pickings here are tasty, but in no way satisfying." - Publishers Weekly
"Martin's command of English and of characterization and setting remains equal to the task of the fantasy megasaga, which is good because Martin's Song is starting to rival the page count of Robert Jordan's 12-volume Wheel of Time." - Booklist
"Of those who work in the grand epic-fantasy tradition, Martin is by far the best.... [He] is a tense, surging, insomnia-inflicting plotter and a deft and inexhaustible sketcher of personalities.... This is as good a time as any to proclaim him the American Tolkien." - Time Magazine
"The only fantast series I'd put on a level with J.R.R. Tolkein's The Lord of the Rings . It's a fantasy series for hip, smart people, even those who don't read fantasy . If you're new to the series, you must begin with Book 1, A Game of Thrones. Once you're hooked . you'll be like the rest of us fans, gnawing your knuckles until book 5." - Marta Salij, Detroit Free Press
"The most impressive modern fantasy, both in terms of conception and execution, is George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire. A masterpiece that will be mentioned with the great works of fantasy." - Contra Costa Times
"Grabs hold and won't let go. It's brilliant." - Robert Jordan
"Such a splendid tale and such a fantistorical! I read my eyes out." - Anne McCaffrey
