I loved this sequel to a Game of Thrones. This book continues the story of the Stark family as they are split by four different kings vying for the throne of the Seven Kingdoms. I really enjoy the way that each family member has their own path to follow, but they all lead back to their upbringing and the family that they are far away from. The story ends with a cliff hanger as you cheer for Bran and his brother Rick to make it safely to someone that will help them survive the horrors of war. When I finished this book, I immediately went and started the next one. I highly recommend this series.
