A Feast for Crows by George R. R. Martin Summary

THE BOOK BEHIND THE FOURTH SEASON OF THE ACCLAIMED HBO SERIES GAME OF THRONES Few books have captivated the imagination and won the devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as has George R. R. Martin’s monumental epic cycle of high fantasy. Now, in A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of peace . . . only to be launched on an even more terrifying course of destruction. A FEAST FOR CROWS It seems too good to be true. After centuries of bitter strife and fatal treachery, the seven powers dividing the land have decimated one another into an uneasy truce. Or so it appears. . . . With the death of the monstrous King Joffrey, Cersei is ruling as regent in King’s Landing. Robb Stark’s demise has broken the back of the Northern rebels, and his siblings are scattered throughout the kingdom like seeds on barren soil. Few legitimate claims to the once desperately sought Iron Throne still exist—or they are held in hands too weak or too distant to wield them effectively. The war, which raged out of control for so long, has burned itself out. But as in the aftermath of any climactic struggle, it is not long before the survivors, outlaws, renegades, and carrion eaters start to gather, picking over the bones of the dead and fighting for the spoils of the soon-to-be dead. Now in the Seven Kingdoms, as the human crows assemble over a banquet of ashes, daring new plots and dangerous new alliances are formed, while surprising faces—some familiar, others only just appearing—are seen emerging from an ominous twilight of past struggles and chaos to take up the challenges ahead. It is a time when the wise and the ambitious, the deceitful and the strong will acquire the skills, the power, and the magic to survive the stark and terrible times that lie before them. It is a time for nobles and commoners, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and sages to come together and stake their fortunes . . . and their lives. For at a feast for crows, many are the guests—but only a few are the survivors.

Armageddon Rag by George R.R. Martin Summary

Jamie Lynch, l’imprésario d’un des plus grands groupes de rock des années soixante, les Nazgûl, est retrouvé ligoté à son bureau et le coeur arraché. Un meurtre qui en fait remonter un autre à la surface : celui du chanteur du groupe, abattu en plein concert, en 1971. Deux crimes non élucidés distants d’une dizaine d’années. Une énigme. Parce que son quatrième roman est au point mort, parce qu’il a suivi l’affaire Charles Manson en tant que journaliste, parce qu’il est fasciné par l’histoire et la musique des Nazgûl, l’écrivain Sander Blair décide de mener sa propre enquête et d’en tirer un livre, son De sang-froid. Mais Sander va rapidement se rendre compte que, malgré les apparences, le meurtre de Jamie Lynch n’est pas une nouvelle affaire Sharon Tate. C’est bien plus compliqué. Et bien pire. Thriller fantastique hanté par des visions d’apocalypse, fascinante plongée dans l’Amérique de l’après-guerre du Viêt Nam sur laquelle plane le fantôme de l’âge d’or du rock, Armageddon Rag est une des réussites majeures de George R. R. Martin...

Londres. 1960. Dix ans ont passé depuis l’attentat contre Hitler déjoué par Peter Carmichael. L’homme qui fut un brillant inspecteur de Scotland Yard dirige maintenant le Guet, la redoutable police secrète créée par Mark Normanby pour juguler l’opposition et traquer les Juifs. Il a adopté Elvira Royston, la fille de son ancien adjoint. Alors que la jeune Elvira se forge lentement mais sûrement une conscience politique et découvre avec effroi les coulisses d’une Angleterre vendue au fascisme, de nouveaux mouvements sur l’échiquier politique secouent le pays. Le retour du duc de Windsor, fasciné par Hitler, n’étant pas le moindre. En danger, plus que jamais, Carmichael va être confronté au plus grand défi de son existence. Avec Une demi-couronne, Jo Walton clôt en beauté sa trilogie du Subtil changement (Le Cercle de Farthing, Hamlet au paradis) et nous rappelle que les Justes, aussi, peuvent écrire l’Histoire.

The Wit & Wisdom of Tyrion Lannister by George R. R. Martin Summary

The perfect gift for fans of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels and HBO’s Game of Thrones: a collection of wicked one-liners from the incomparable Imp of Casterly Rock, fully illustrated by Jonty Clark! “My mind is my weapon. My brother has his sword, King Robert has his warhammer, and I have my mind . . . and a mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone if it is to keep its edge.” The jealous masses of the Seven Kingdoms may call him Halfman, but none have ever accused Tyrion Lannister of being a halfwit. His golden tongue has saved his skin slightly more often than it has landed him in mortal peril. Now, this special illustrated volume preserves his most essential knowledge for future generations, featuring time-tested guidance on such varied subjects as . . . The art of persuasion “The best lies are seasoned with a bit of truth.” Fine dining “A little honest loathing can be refreshing, like a tart wine after too much sweet.” The fair sex “The young ones smell much better, but the old ones know more tricks.” Royal politics “Crowns do queer things to the heads beneath them.” Common ailments “A sword through the bowels. A sure cure for constipation.” At once charming, insightful, and ruthlessly irreverent, The Wit & Wisdom of Tyrion Lannister is short on pretense and overflowing with finely crafted gems—just like the man himself.

Martin et Druon : Les rois de fer by Jessica Cinar Summary

Longtemps classée première au palmarès des séries les plus regardées (et les plus piratées) de la planète, Game of Thrones suscite passion et curiosité. En plein essor des séries et autres reconstitutions audiovisuelles, le public questionne davantage ce qu’il visionne, notamment grâce à Internet. C’est particulièrement le cas des « fictions historiques ». Si nos homologues anglo-saxons ont à leur disposition de nombreux écrits pour étudier – voire disséquer – la série phare d’HBO ou les livres de G.R.R. Martin, il en existe peu, en comparaison, en France. Quelques articles se sont penchés sur la saga littéraire et l’une de ses grandes sources d’inspiration, de l’aveu même de l’auteur : Les Rois Maudits de Maurice Druon. Aujourd’hui le public cherche et se projette davantage dans ce qu’il voit. Que ce soit avec Les Tudors, Borgia ou encore Vikings, le public semble friand des reconstitutions d’époques lointaines mais aux sujets toujours d’actualités parfois. Il s’agit donc d’interroger et de confronter notre imaginaire sur cette époque aussi obscure que fascinante qu’est le Moyen-Âge, à travers deux auteurs se situant à mi-chemin entre Alexandre Dumas et J.R.R. Tolkien : G.R.R Martin et Maurice Druon. Loin d’être une simple analyse comparée sur l’univers de Westeros, cet ouvrage tente au contraire de le rapprocher de figures bien réelles de notre Histoire et de notre littérature. Jessica Cinar est originaire de Strasbourg où elle a effectué des études d’Histoire. Auteure amateure depuis le lycée, elle se passionne pour la mythologie et les récits épiques de Tolkien et de Robin Hobb. C’est au cours de son master en Histoire à l’université qu’elle est amenée à reconsidérer la littérature comme objet d’étude, en lieu et place des guerres et autres sujets plus « classiques ». À la fin de son cursus et à l’occasion du Comic Con de Paris en 2015, elle échange avec l’auteure Anne Robillard. C’est à la suite de cette rencontre et des conseils de la romancière qu’elle trouve le courage de se lancer dans l’édition d’un premier ouvrage.

A Game of Thrones: The Illustrated Edition by George R. R. Martin Summary

A dazzling illustrated edition of the book that started it all—for readers of A Song of Ice and Fire and fans of HBO’s Game of Thrones. Published in celebration of the twentieth anniversary of George R. R. Martin’s landmark series, this lavishly illustrated special edition of A Game of Thrones—featuring gorgeous full-page artwork as well as black-and-white illustrations in every chapter—revitalizes the fantasy masterpiece that became a cultural phenomenon. And now the mystery, intrigue, romance, and adventure of this magnificent saga come to life as never before. A GAME OF THRONES A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE: BOOK ONE With a special foreword by John Hodgman 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.

Martin’s stunning series is destined to stand as one of the great achievements of imaginative fiction. A STORM OF SWORDS Of the five contenders for power, one is dead, another in disfavor, and still the wars rage as violently as ever, as alliances are made and broken. Joffrey, of House Lannister, sits on the Iron Throne, the uneasy ruler of the land of the Seven Kingdoms. His most bitter rival, Lord Stannis, stands defeated and disgraced, the victim of the jealous sorceress who holds him in her evil thrall. But young Robb, of House Stark, still rules the North from the fortress of Riverrun. Robb plots against his despised Lannister enemies, even as they hold his sister hostage at King’s Landing, the seat of the Iron Throne. Meanwhile, making her way across a blood-drenched continent is the exiled queen, Daenerys, mistress of the only three dragons still left in the world. . . . But as opposing forces maneuver for the final titanic showdown, an army of barbaric wildlings arrives from the outermost line of civilization. In their vanguard is a horde of mythical Others--a supernatural army of the living dead whose animated corpses are unstoppable. As the future of the land hangs in the balance, no one will rest until the Seven Kingdoms have exploded in a veritable storm of swords. . . .

A Dance with Dragons by George R. R. Martin Summary

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • THE BOOK BEHIND THE FIFTH SEASON OF THE ACCLAIMED HBO SERIES GAME OF THRONES Don’t miss the thrilling sneak peek of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire: Book Six, The Winds of Winter Dubbed “the American Tolkien” by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the #1 New York Times bestselling author delivers the fifth book in his landmark series—as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire. A DANCE WITH DRAGONS A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE: BOOK FIVE In the aftermath of a colossal battle, the future of the Seven Kingdoms hangs in the balance—beset by newly emerging threats from every direction. In the east, Daenerys Targaryen, the last scion of House Targaryen, rules with her three dragons as queen of a city built on dust and death. But Daenerys has thousands of enemies, and many have set out to find her. As they gather, one young man embarks upon his own quest for the queen, with an entirely different goal in mind. Fleeing from Westeros with a price on his head, Tyrion Lannister, too, is making his way to Daenerys. But his newest allies in this quest are not the rag-tag band they seem, and at their heart lies one who could undo Daenerys’s claim to Westeros forever. Meanwhile, to the north lies the mammoth Wall of ice and stone—a structure only as strong as those guarding it. There, Jon Snow, 998th Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch, will face his greatest challenge. For he has powerful foes not only within the Watch but also beyond, in the land of the creatures of ice. From all corners, bitter conflicts reignite, intimate betrayals are perpetrated, and a grand cast of outlaws and priests, soldiers and skinchangers, nobles and slaves, will face seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Some will fail, others will grow in the strength of darkness. But in a time of rising restlessness, the tides of destiny and politics will lead inevitably to the greatest dance of all. Praise for A Dance with Dragons “Filled with vividly rendered set pieces, unexpected turnings, assorted cliffhangers and moments of appalling cruelty, A Dance with Dragons is epic fantasy as it should be written: passionate, compelling, convincingly detailed and thoroughly imagined.”—The Washington Post “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 “One of the best series in the history of fantasy.”—Los Angeles Times
