George R. R. Martinâ€™s epic fantasy masterwork A Game of Thrones is brought to life in the pages of this full-colour graphic novel. This is the second volume in what is sure to be one of the most coveted collaborations of the year.
Now a major Sky Atlantic TV series from HBO, featuring a stellar cast.
Novelist Daniel Abraham and illustrator Tommy Patterson are not merely turning George R. R. Martinâ€™s epic fantasy A Game of Thrones into a graphic novel: They are meticulously translating one art form into another, and capturing the intricate nuances of Martinâ€™s novels just as HBO is doing with the blockbuster series. The Abraham/Patterson collaboration is more than just a faithful adaptation. It is a labor of loveâ€”and a thrilling masterwork in its own right.
Now, in the second volume, the sweeping action moves from the icy north, where the bastard Jon Snow seeks to carve out a place for himself among bitter outcasts and hardened criminals sworn to service upon the Wall . . . to the decadent south and the capital city of Kingâ€™s Landing, where Jonâ€™s father, Lord Eddard Stark, serves as the Hand of King Robert Baratheon amid a nest of courtly vipers . . . to the barbarian lands across the Narrow Sea, where the young princess Daenerys Targaryen has found the unexpected in her forced marriage to the Dothraki warlord Khal Drogo: loveâ€”and with it, for the first time in her life, power.
Meanwhile, the dwarf Tyrion Lannister, accused by Lady Catelyn Stark of the attempted murder of her now-crippled youngest son, must call upon all his cunning and wit to survive when he is captured and imprisoned in the lofty dungeons of the Eyrie, where Lady Starkâ€™s sisterâ€”a woman obsessed with vengeance against all Lannistersâ€”rules. But Catelynâ€™s impulsive arrest of the Imp will set in motion a series of violent events whose outcome is fated to shake the world at the worst possible moment. For now is not the time for private feuds and bloodthirsty ambitions.
