We are thrilled to announce that on March 15th, the fifth volume of George R.R Martin’s bestselling fantasy series, A Dance with Dragons, will be released in paperback. Due to the epic scope of A Dance with Dragons, as with A Storm of Swords, the release has been split into two separate books – the first entitled Dreams and Dust, and the second After the Feast. With A Dance with Dragons being nominated Time magazine’s Novel of the Year, and HBO’s fantastic second TV series debuting this April, there’s never been a better time to delve into the game of thrones!
Part 1: Dreams and Dust
Tyrion Lannister, having killed his father, and wrongfully accused of killing his nephew, King Joffrey, has escaped from King’s Landing with a price on his head.
To the north lies the great Wall of ice and stone – a structure only as strong as those guarding it. Eddard Stark’s bastard son Jon Snow has been elected 998th Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch. But Jon has enemies both inside and beyond the Wall.
And in the east Daenerys Targaryen struggles to hold a city built on dreams and dust.
Avaiable from March 15 at all good bookstores and the following online retailers:
Part 2: After the Feast
In King’s Landing the Queen Regent, Cersei Lannister, awaits trial, abandoned by all those she trusted; while in the eastern city of Yunkai her brother Tyrion has been sold as a slave.
Having left his wife and the Red Priestess Melisandre under the protection of Jon Snow, Stannis Baratheon marches south to confront the Boltons at Winterfell. But beyond the Wall the wildling armies are massing for an assault…
On all sides bitter conflicts are reigniting, played out by a grand cast of outlaws and priests, soldiers and skinchangers, nobles and slaves. The tides of destiny will inevitably lead to the greatest dance of all.
