Publisher's Summary

The complete, unabridged audiobook of A Clash of Kings.
HBO’s hit series A Game of Thrones is based on George R. R. Martin’s internationally best-selling series A Song of Ice and Fire, the greatest fantasy epic of the modern age. A Clash of Kings is the second volume in the series.
Throughout Westeros, the cold winds are rising.
From the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding lands of Winterfell, chaos reigns as pretenders to the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms stake their claims through tempest, turmoil and war.
As a prophecy of doom cuts across the sky - a comet the colour of blood and flame - five factions struggle for control of a divided land. Brother plots against brother and the dead rise to walk in the night.
Against a backdrop of incest, fratricide, alchemy and murder, the price of glory is measured in blood.

One of the most read fantasy series in the world, A Song of Ice and Fire, is here in Book 2, A Clash of Kings, written by legendary author George R. R. Martin and in an unabridged audiobook narrated by veteran British actor Roy Dotrice. This phenomenal series has been the inspiration behind the colossal HBO TV series Game of Thrones. The Seven Kingdoms lie in ruin. King Robert is dead and the boy-king rules as a tyrant. Talk of an immense war is seeping throughout the lands. Available now from Audible.

I started this series having watched the Game of Throne series on TV and it has not disappointed.  It does take time to get into the stories as there are so many characters, plot lines and background history.  What really helped me to follow what is happening was a website called Tower of the Hand, which has summaries of each chapter and links to biographies of all the characters. 

A great ranges of interesting characters with most showing shades of good
and bad in their actions.    Tyrion the dwarf is a great literary creation.  The author is a natural  story teller,  packing the narrative with sparkling dialogue, inventive action, and most chapters end on cliffhangers.  Unusually for
a fantasy series many of the early battles are only described to us in the third person, although later books start to describe the battles as first person encounters.

Don't forget to get part 2!

The way the publisher has split a single volume into two parts is not only blatant profiteering but has limited my enjoyment of the series. This is the second time I have gone on to the next book without realising I had not finished the book I was reading!! The result is I know what is going to happen in the second part of this volume because I have listened to the start of the next book. The way Audible catalogues the books doesn't help- I have tried a couple of different filters and none place parts 1 and 2 of this volume together. It would help if Audible could warn you when you buy the book that it is in 2 parts, as other providers do. Started a new book by a diffferent auther- I might come back to this, but may just give up.
