'Of those who work in the grand epic fantasy tradition, Martin
is by far the best'
'Colossal, staggering... Martin captures all the intoxicating
complexity of the Wars of the Roses or Imperial Rome'
'The sheer-mind-boggling scope of this epic has sent other
fantasy writers away shaking their heads... Its ambition: to
construct the Twelve Caesars of fantasy fiction, with characters so
venomous they could eat the Borgias.'
