A Feast for Crows (A Song of Ice and Fire), George R. R. Martin, book reviewA Feast for Crows is the fourth novel in George R.R. Martin’s epic series, A Song of Ice and Fire. Set in the fictional lands of Westeros and Essos, the saga follows its participants as they play “the game of thrones”. King Robert Baratheon died in the first novel, and was succeeded by his son Joffrey – but given the allegations that his children were actually the product of incest between his queen, Cersei, and her brother Jaime, this did not sit well with the kingdoms. Other kings declared themselves, and war followed.

At the opening of the saga, the main family was the Starks of Winterfell, but due to the loss of various members of the family, there are many other narrators by the time of A Feast for Crows.

Song of Ice & Fire - A Game of Thrones, a Clash of Kings, a Storm of Swords, and a Feast for Crows (A Song of Ice and Fire) - George R R Martin, book reviewIn 2011, a new show began on Sky, called A Game of Thrones. Starring Sean Bean, it looked like an absorbing fantasy epic, yet as with many shows I forgot to watch the first episode and never managed to catch up. Yet the show brought to my attention the series of novels upon which it was based – George R. R. Martin’s A Song Of Ice And Fire.
