Anglais A GAME OF THRONES: LEATHER CLOTH BOXED SET (édition en anglais)

À propos

Perfect for fans of the epic fantasy series that inspired HBOs Game of Thrones --a gorgeous boxed set featuring conveniently sized leather-cloth-bound editions of the first five novels! An immersive entertainment experience unlike any other, A Song of Ice and Fire has earned George R. R. Martin--dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine--international acclaim and millions of loyal readers. Now the monumental saga gets the royal treatment it deserves, with each book wrapped in bound leather-cloth covers and packaged together in an elegant display case. This one-of-a-kind boxed set includes: A GAME OF THRONES A CLASH OF KINGS A STORM OF SWORDS A FEAST FOR CROWS A DANCE WITH DRAGONS One of the best series in the history of fantasy.-- Los Angeles Times 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 Kings Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Roberts 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 queens 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. 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

George R. R. Martin

Né en 1948 dans le New Jersey, George R.R. Martin vendit sa première nouvelle à la revue Galaxy en 1970 et ne cessa jamais d'écrire depuis, que ce soit sous la plume d'un journaliste, d'un scénariste pour la télévision ou d'un romancier à plein temps. Tous les genres de l'imaginaire ont connu ses faveurs : science-fiction d'abord (L'agonie de la lumière, Chanson pour Lya, .), puis fantastique (Riverdream, Armageddon Rag), mais c'est aujourd'hui à la fantasy qu'il consacre tout son temps. Son immense saga Le trône de fer - une fresque épique à mi-chemin entre Les rois maudits et Excalibur - connaît un tel succès mondial que la chaîne américaine HBO l'a adaptée en série télévisée sous le titre Game of thrones. Il est également l'auteur de Dragon de glace chez Flammarion jeunesse et directeur de la série Wild Cards publiée chez J'ai lu.
George R.R. Martin a été récompensé par de nombreux prix littéraires et a été sélectionné par le magazine Times dans la liste des 100 personnes les plus influentes du monde en 2011.
