Available only on Apple Books, this enhanced edition is an amazing way to explore the rich world of George R. R. Martin’s series. Stay on top of the epic story lines with annotations, glossaries, and family trees. Follow each main character’s journey with interactive maps. Explore the symbolism of every house’s sigil. In addition to hundreds of enhancements, you’ll find an excerpt of The Winds of Winter, the hugely anticipated sixth book in Martin’s series.
The cold is returning to Winterfell, where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime. A time of conflict has arisen in the Stark family, as they are pulled from the safety of their home into a whirlpool of tragedy, betrayal, assassination, plots and counterplots. Each decision and action carries with it the potential for conflict as several prominent families, comprised of lords, ladies, soldiers, sorcerers, assassins and bastards, are pulled together in the most deadly game of all: the game of thrones.
PW gave a starred review to this first installation in a new epic fantasy series.
Best Digital Version
By far the best version of the first book to own. Character names are usually highlighted for quick searches to remind yourself of who they are (seeing how there’s so many in this series) and the recap before each chapter starts can be a lifesaver after not reading for a short while!
Poor Dark Mode Support, Otherwise Great!
The chapter titles, maps, and annotations have white borders around them which do not appear nicely when using dark colour schemes.
The additions themselves are very welcome, however.
Surprising typographical errors for such a popular book. Audio won’t play over to the next page. Map not reliable. Character footnotes repetitive and sometimes explain no more than is in the text. Enthralling story
