Game of Thrones 5-Copy Boxed Set

A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, A Feast for Crows, and A Dance with Dragons.

Song of ice and fire

Perfect for fans of HBO’s Game of Thrones—a boxed set featuring the first five novels!

An immersive entertainment experience unlike any other, A Song of Ice and Fire has earned George R. R. Martin—dubbed “the American Tolkien” by
Time magazine—international acclaim and millions of loyal readers. Now here is the entire monumental cycle:

 

A GAME OF THRONES

A CLASH OF KINGS

A STORM OF SWORDS

A FEAST FOR CROWS

A DANCE WITH DRAGONS

 

“One of the best series in the history of fantasy.”—Los Angeles Times

 

Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King’s Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert’s name. There his family dwells in peace and comfort: his proud wife, Catelyn; his sons Robb, Brandon, and Rickon; his daughters Sansa and Arya; and his bastard son, Jon Snow. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse—unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season.

 

Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances. Now Robert is riding north to Winterfell, bringing his queen, the lovely but cold Cersei, his son, the cruel, vainglorious Prince Joffrey, and the queen’s brothers Jaime and Tyrion of the powerful and wealthy House Lannister—the first a swordsman without equal, the second a dwarf whose stunted stature belies a brilliant mind. All are heading for Winterfell and a fateful encounter that will change the course of kingdoms.

 

Meanwhile, across the Narrow Sea, Prince Viserys, heir of the fallen House Targaryen, which once ruled all of Westeros, schemes to reclaim the throne with an army of barbarian Dothraki—whose loyalty he will purchase in the only coin left to him: his beautiful yet innocent sister, Daenerys.

 

“Long live George Martin . . . a literary dervish, enthralled by complicated characters and vivid language, and bursting with the wild vision of the very best tale tellers.”—The New York Times
Rezension
Praise for George R. R. Martin and A Song of Ice and Fire

"The only fantasy series I'd put on a level with J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings . . . It's a fantasy series for hip, smart people, even those who don't read fantasy."-Chicago Tribune

"Martin amply fulfills the first volume's promise and continues what seems destined to be one of the best fantasy series ever written."-The Denver Post, on A Clash of Kings

"Martin has produced-is producing, since the series isn't over-the great fantasy epic of our era. It's an epic for a more profane, more jaded, more ambivalent age than the one Tolkien lived in."-Lev Grossman, Time

"Addictive . . . George R. R. Martin has created the unlikely genre of the realpolitik fantasy novel."-Rolling Stone, on A Feast for Crows

"Epic fantasy as it should be written: passionate, compelling, convincingly detailed and thoroughly imagined."-The Washington Post, on A Dance with Dragons

"I always expect the best from George R. R. Martin, and he always delivers."-Robert Jordan

  • PROLOGUE [to A GAME OF THRONES]

    "We should start back," Gared urged as the woods began to grow dark around them.

    "The wildlings are dead."

    "Do the dead frighten you?" Ser Waymar Royce asked with just the hint of a smile.

    Gared did not rise to the bait. He was an old man, past fifty, and he had seen the lordlings come and go. "Dead is dead," he said. "We have no business with the dead."

    "Are they dead?" Royce asked softly. "What proof have we?"

    "Will saw them," Gared said. "If he says they are dead, that's proof enough for me."

    Will had known they would drag him into the quarrel sooner or later. He wished it had been later rather than sooner. "My mother told me that dead men sing no songs," he put in.

    "My wet nurse said the same thing, Will," Royce replied. "Never believe anything you hear at a woman's tit. There are things to be learned even from the dead." His voice echoed, too loud in the twilit forest.

    "We have a long ride before us," Gared pointed out. "Eight days, maybe nine. And night is falling."

    Ser Waymar Royce glanced at the sky with disinterest. "It does that every day about this time. Are you unmanned by the dark, Gared?"

    "Will could see the tightness around Gared's mouth, the barely suppressed anger in his eyes under the thick black hood of his cloak. Gared had spent forty years in the Night's Watch, man and boy, and he was not accustomed to being made light of. Yet it was more than that. Under the wounded pride, Will could sense something else in the older man. You could taste it; a nervous tension that came perilous close to fear.

    Will shared his unease. He had been four years on the Wall. The first time he had been sent beyond, all the old stories had come rushing back, and his bowels had turned to water. He had laughed about it afterward. He was a veteran of a hundred rangings by now, and the endless dark wilderness that the southron called the haunted forest had no more terrors for him.

    Until tonight. Something was different tonight. There was an edge to this darkness that made his hackles rise. Nine days they had been riding, north and northwest and then north again, farther and farther from the Wall, hard on the track of a band of Wildling raiders. Each day had been worse than the day that had come before it. Today was the worst of all. A cold wind was blowing out of the north, and it made the trees rustle like living things. All day, Will had felt as though something were watching him, something cold and implacable that loved him not. Gared had felt it too. Will wanted nothing so much as to ride hellbent for the safety of the Wall, but that was not a feeling to share with your commander.

    Especially not a commander like this one.

    Ser Waymar Royce was the youngest son of an ancient house with too many heirs. He was a handsome youth of eighteen, grey-eyed and graceful and slender as a knife. Mounted on his huge black destrier, the knight towered above Will and Gared on their smaller garrons. He wore black leather boots, black woolen pants, black moleskin gloves, and a fine supple coat of gleaming black ringmail over layers of black wool and boiled leather. Ser Waymar had been a Sworn Brother of the Night's Watch for less than half a year, but no one could say he had not prepared for his vocation. At least insofar as his wardrobe was concerned.

    His cloak was his crowning glory; sable, thick and black and soft as sin. "Bet he killed them all himself, he did," Gared told the barracks over wine, "twisted their little heads off, our mighty warrior." They had all shared the laugh.

    It is hard to take orders from a man you laughed at in your cups, Will reflected as he sat shivering atop his garron. Gared must have felt the same.

    "Mormont said as we should track them, and we did," Gared said. "They're dead. They shan't trouble us no more. Th

Super Preis Leistung

sehr kleines Format und sehr dünnes Papier. Die Papierhülle sieht sehr gut aus. Allerdings sehen die Bücher im Vergleich zu den Deutschen niedlich aus.

Ein Highlight für alle Fans

Mit dieser Box erwerben Sie ein absolutes Highlight. Das Preisleistungs-Verhältnis ist kaum zu schlagen. Die ersten vier englischen Bände (entspricht den ersten acht! Bänden im deutschen) in einer schicken Ausgabe mit Schuber. Ein spannender Epos, der sich nur an wenigen Stellen zieht. Auch das Englisch ist gut verständlich, wenn auch manchmal etwas umständlich (für meine Begriffe) Toll finde ich das die Kapitel den Schwerpunkt auf verschiedenen Charakteren haben. Damit ist das ganze abwechslungsreich und man verliert weniger schnell den Überblick. Jeder der Hauptcharaktere wird auf diese Weise seine Fans finden. Mein Lieblingscharakter ist Arya Stark. Aber, jedem das seine :-)

Empfehlenswert

Meiner Meinung nach spannende Bücher, die man nicht so schnell aus der Hand legen möchte. Abwicklung des Kaufs, Bestellung etc. verlief schnell und reibungslos.
