The season three premiere of HBO’s A Game of Thrones is set to hit our screens in April this year, and whilst this is a pleasant addition to our television schedules, it doesn’t quite compare to the capricious and erratic writings of George R.R. Martin.
Now on his sixth novel, the storylines are not slowing or fading at all; but they are not for the fainthearted as carnage comes with every turn of the page. Martin doesn’t give you time to get bored of character, as the speed of their turnover leaves them somewhat forgettable. As I rifle through the pages of the novels, I dread that my favourite character might be next to meet his cruel and untimely death.
Through a myriad of subplots, the A Game of Thrones series are a compelling set of novels that question family loyalty and sacrifice to the highest degree.
