A Storm of Swords, Steel and Snow, Book 3, Part 1 of A Song of Fire and Ice by George R R Martin is a continuation of his highly-acclaimed epic series.
The third book is split into two parts and in A Storm of Swords, Steel and Snow, winter rapidly approaches the Seven Kingdoms which have been torn apart by war and feuds.
A little bit of magic creeps into this book so insidiously you'll hardly notice the change, but this is another powerful story that'll have you on the edge of your seat, rapidly turning pages, absorbed in the action and desperate to know what happens next.
In A Storm of Swords, Steel and Snow, Brother Mance Rayder prepares to lead the wildlings from the Northern borders South towards The Wall.
Newly crowned Robb Stark in the House of Stark in the North has to stretch his defences against not only the threat coming from the wastelands, but from the Lannisters to the South where his sisters are held captive.
