by George R.R. Martin
The Game of Thrones is about turmoil in the seven kingdoms of Westria. After decades of peace, King Robert's assistant dies, leaving an open spot at his court. He appoints his loyal friend Eddard Stark, Lord of Winterfell, to fill the post. Meanwhile, tension is brewing among the other lords, who begin making alliances and preparing for war.
I loved this book because it is full of action and twists that keep you guessing. It has lots of detail that makes you feel like you are really there. This book dives into the more brutal, less romantic side of knights in shining armor and princesses in castles.
I would recommend this book to boys around my age who like books with brutal action scenes and deception. Considering this is not your typical fantasy novel, it is not for people who are fans of fairy tale endings and light-hearted stories.
