Novelist Daniel Abraham and illustrator Tommy Patterson are not
merely turning George R. R. Martin's epic fantasy A Game of
Thrones into a graphic novel: They are meticulously
translating one art form into another, and capturing the intricate
nuances of Martin's novels just as HBO is doing with the
blockbuster series. The Abraham/Patterson collaboration is more
than just a faithful adaptation. It is a labor of love-and a
thrilling masterwork in its own right.
Now, in the second volume, the sweeping action moves from the icy
north, where the bastard Jon Snow seeks to carve out a place for
himself among bitter outcasts and hardened criminals sworn to
service upon the Wall . . . to the decadent south and the capital
city of King's Landing, where Jon's father, Lord Eddard Stark,
serves as the Hand of King Robert Baratheon amid a nest of courtly
vipers . . . to the barbarian lands across the Narrow Sea, where
the young princess Daenerys Targaryen has found the unexpected in
her forced marriage to the Dothraki warlord Khal Drogo: love-and
with it, for the first time in her life, power.
Meanwhile, the dwarf Tyrion Lannister, accused by Lady Catelyn
Stark of the attempted murder of her now-crippled youngest son,
must call upon all his cunning and wit to survive when he is
captured and imprisoned in the lofty dungeons of the Eyrie, where
Lady Stark's sister-a woman obsessed with vengeance against all
Lannisters-rules. But Catelyn's impulsive arrest of the Imp will
set in motion a series of violent events whose outcome is fated to
shake the world at the worst possible moment. For now is not the
time for private feuds and bloodthirsty ambitions.
Winter is coming . . . and with it, terrors beyond imagining.
