A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)

A Game of Thrones  - George R.R. Martin If you're a fan of epic/high fantasy (think Robert Jordan and his Wheel of Time series), you'll enjoy these books.

Lots of political intrigue and plenty of battle scenes.

I would have rated this five stars, except 1) All the names get really confusing at the beginning. It took me a good third of the book to get used to all the names and remember who was who. 2) SOOO much death. No character is safe!

I dislike getting to learn/like/love a character only to have them die.

Still, this is a great read. Definitely looking forward to the rest of the series.
