“For the first time in hundreds of years, the night came alive with the music of dragons.” With this sentence, another great book comes to an end. George RR Martin has truly captured my mind with this spellbinding novel based on empires, fantasy, pride and fantastical beasts. This book cannot be described, it is simply fascinating, intriguing, magnificent and wonderful. The brilliant ripple effect created by Martin throughout the book is brilliant, one action taken place anywhere, in any location will have consequences everywhere(every mapped place in this book). According to me, Daenerys Targaryen is the protagonist in the story, she represents all that one can lose and all that one can gain at the same time. That last paragraph had me on the edge of my seat, i cannot wait to start with the second edition(A Clash of Kings). If you differentiate between the beginning and the ending of the story: In the beginning, there is only one peaceful kingdom ruled by a loved king and at the end, there are three kings in the realm, strange happenings in the north and one more supposed king not to mention Daenerys Targaryen who is safely across the narrow sea, although the same cannot be said for those who are being targeted by her. The fluidity with which Martin moves from one event to the other is startling, it is amazing. This book truly is a piece of art, an intricate and beautifully detailed piece of art.
