A Storm of Swords

From Academic Kids

A Storm of Swords is the third book in A Song of Ice and Fire, a fantasy series by George R. R. Martin.

A Storm of Swords is set in a fictitious world reminiscent of Europe in the Middle Ages (primarily on a continent called Westeros), except for the fact that in this world, seasons can last decades. The tale is told through the point of view of 10 main characters:

  • Lady Catelyn Stark, of House Tully, widow of Eddard Stark
  • Princess Sansa Stark, eldest daughter of Eddard Stark and Catelyn Stark, held captive by the King on the Iron Throne at King's Landing
  • Princess Arya Stark, youngest daughter of Eddard Stark and Catelyn Stark, missing and presumed dead
  • Prince Bran Stark, called Bran, son of Eddard Stark and Catelyn Stark, heir to the North, believed dead
  • Jon Snow, bastard son of Eddard Stark
  • Samwell Tarly, sworn brother of the Night's Watch and former heir to Horn Hill
  • Tyrion Lannister, youngest son of Tywin Lannister, a dwarf, brother of Ser Jaime Lannister, heir to Casterly Rock
  • Ser Jaime Lannister, eldest son of Tywin Lannister, brother of Tyrion Lannister, Lord Commander of the Kingsguard and Warden of the East, held captive by the King in the North at Riverrun
  • Ser Davos Seaworth, a smuggler turned knight
  • Queen Daenerys Targaryen, Stormborn, of the Targaryen Dynasty

Plot

The Battle of the Blackwater Rush is over, Stannis has been dashed against the Imp's Chain, and the Lannisters have won.

Martin continues to amaze, with plot twists, battles to the death, and journeys into new lands..
