A Storm of Swords

Book: A Storm of Swords

Author: George R. R. Martin

Reviewer: Allison J. Medlin, Associate Director, University Scholars Program

A Storm of Swords is the 3rd book in George R. R. Martin’s epic fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire.  More commonly known by the title of the first book (and subsequent HBO hit) A Game of Thrones, this series is not-to-be-missed by any fans of fantasy literature or the HBO show. A Storm of Swords is widely regarded as the best book in the series so far (there are still 2 books yet to be published), and I would agree with that assessment.  This book is wonderfully written, rich in detail and exciting from start to finish – it is hands down the best book I read this year.  Here’s hoping that the 6th book in the series will be published in 2014!
