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.

Amazing narration for an amazing story
The narration of this audio book is unreal. Roy Dotrice is able to change his pitch and tone to match different characters to seamlessly tell the story without missing a beat. I could listen to him talk endlessly. His voice, lent to an already immeasurably fantastical story, makes for a must-listen. Highly recommend to any series fans, as well as any audio book newcomers. This will not disappoint!!
