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 King's Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert's name. 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....

Incredible narration, incredible story
I don’t usually listen to audiobook but thought I’d give Game of Thrones a try. Roy Dotrice is an absolutely incredible narrator. He gives each character different voices, making it easier to follow along, but not to the point where it feels silly like other audiobooks I’ve listened to. His voice is so smooth and pleasing to listen to. 10/10 recommend if you’re looking for a good audio book.
