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.


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.

    Great book love it
  • love learning about these characters

    By Toni FGMAMTC
    I still really liked this book. I'm invested in the characters and want to read about them more and more. But, this book is nowhere near as great as the others. Especially the way the last one ended I expected to be blown away by this one. I will definitely continue reading the series though.
  • Under rated and information heavy

    By rachelpaceberry
    While this is by far the least loved of all the books, I admit that I too took my time in getting through it...once I reread it I was shocked that my impatience and excitement for the usual unexpected deaths, the company of mystery and lore was more prevalent and specific character POVs were the most important and story lines involving the greyjoy line, as well as Jamie are well worth the time it takes to muddle through this novel. It truly is well done and wildly unappreciated because it couldn't possibly be the epic mass destruction and madness that made A Storm of Swords such glorious fun to read....I still say this is a fantastic read. Arya and her subplot is to die for, and again I stress the awesomeness of learning more about the history of Pike and the religion of the Drowned God is too cool for words. So seriously, give it a chance, you'll be glad you did.
  • Gives me a book boner

    By Harjggfdhff
    It's that good
  • Worth the work of reading

    By PatrickETurner
    This book was by far the slowest read of the series so far, but it is still worth trouble. It does help paint a picture of what life is like throughout westeros that largely goes ignored when chapters are devoted to Jon, Dany and Tyrion. Parts were slow and I would go weeks between chapters for a little bit, but towards the end I was turning pages faster than Samwell in a library.
