'In the grand epic fantasy tradition, Martin is by far the best ... tense, surging, insomnia-inflicting' Time Magazine
`Martin's style is so vivid that you will be hooked within a few pages' The Times
`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'
`The writing is always powerful...' SFX
