Book Description :

Before George R. R. Martin there was Dorothy Dunnett . . . PERFECT for fans of A Game of Thrones. 'She is a brilliant story teller, The Lymond Chronicles will keep you reading late into the night, desperate to know the fate of the characters you have come to care deeply about.' The Times Literary Supplement The Game of Kings is the first book in the series ----------------------------- 'I despised men who accepted their fate. I shaped mine twenty times and had it broken twenty times in my hands' It is 1547 and, after five years imprisonment and exile far from his homeland, Francis Crawford of Lymond - scholar, soldier, rebel, nobleman, outlaw - has at last come back to Edinburgh. But for many in an already divided Scotland, where conspiracies swarm around the infant Queen Mary like clouds of midges, he is not welcome. Lymond is wanted for treason and murder, and he is accompanied by a band of killers and ruffians who will only bring further violence and strife. Is he back to foment rebellion? Does he seek revenge on those who banished him? Or has he returned to clear his name? No one but the enigmatic Lymond himself knows the truth - and no one will discover it until he is ready . . . 'A storyteller who could teach Scheherazade a thing or two about pace, suspense and imaginative invention'New York Times 'Melodrama of the most magnificent kind' The Guardian

For when kings clash, the whole land trembles.

Book Description :

The second volume in a four-part graphic novel adaptation of the second book in George R. R. Martin’s landmark A Song of Ice and Fire series, the inspiration for HBO’s Game of Thrones. As chaos grips Westeros, a flaming red comet continues to burn a crimson path across the sky. Some see this fiery herald as a sign of their impending victory. Others see it as a mark of the blood and terror that will soon engulf this divided kingdom. But one thing is certain: None of the six contenders who seek either the Iron Throne, or the lands their ancestors once held as kings, are willing to back down. And as factions scatter or come together, there are many witnesses to the unrest that is to come. Arya Stark finds herself in the heart of enemy territory at Harrenhal, while her mother is trapped between two brothers battling each other for their dead brother’s throne. In the heart of King’s Landing, Tyrion is busy ferreting out traitors as the Hand of the King, while Jon is beginning to comprehend the lawlessness of life beyond the Wall. New friends arrive in Winterfell for Bran, a forgotten son finds life in the Iron Islands quite different than he remembered, and the Mother of Dragons at last arrives in the fabled city of Qarth. But even as these would-be kings draw their lines of battle, it is the people of Westeros who will most suffer for their ambitions. For when kings clash, it is the commoners who bear the greatest cost.

Book Description :

The first volume of a four-part graphic novel adaptation of the second book in George R. R. Martin’s landmark Song of Ice and Fire series, the inspiration for HBO’s Game of Thrones. The four-part graphic novel adaptation of A Game of Thrones proved that George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire has the power to enchant in any medium. Now the story continues as New York Times bestselling author Landry Q. Walker and illustrator Mel Rubi introduce a thrilling new series based on the second book in the landmark saga. Time is out of joint. The summer of peace and plenty, ten years long, is drawing to a close, and the harsh, chill winter approaches like an angry beast. Two great leaders—Lord Eddard Stark and King Robert Baratheon—who held sway over an age of enforced peace are dead, victims of royal treachery. Now, from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding walls of Winterfell, chaos reigns as pretenders to the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms prepare to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war. As a prophecy of doom cuts across the sky—a comet the color of blood and flame—six factions struggle for control of a divided land. Eddard’s son Robb has declared himself King in the North. In the south, Joffrey, the heir apparent, rules in name only, victim of the scheming courtiers who teem over King’s Landing. Robert Baratheon’s two brothers each seek his own dominion, while a disfavored house turns once more to conquest. And a continent away, an exiled queen, the Mother of Dragons, risks everything to lead her precious brood across a hard, hot desert to win back the crown that is rightfully hers. Against a backdrop of incest and fratricide, alchemy and murder, the price of glory may be measured in blood. And the spoils of victory may just go to the men and women possessed of the coldest steel . . . and the coldest hearts. For when rulers clash, all the land feels the tremors.

Book Description :

It is not really clearly understood what this book is exactly: nor how it came about and so forth; therefore, all that we can really do to best offer a description of this book is to provide a sample of it that one may read > And the king shall appoint unto himself a couple of knights to be his horsemen; and sometimes the knights of the king shall be able to run in the beginning even before his chariots run; for the horsemen shall be able to leap over the chariots and run out into the battle-field ahead of the pawns. And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and will set them strategically upon the Chess-board in order to plow his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots and so forth. And until one memorizes the patterns which result in victory, one must simply take each move step by step and play it by ear. Let the people which want a king to rule over them, study to play this board game which I have made available as an ensample of what your lives will be like from the day that you appoint one of your fellow-men to have rule over your own souls. And the king, whom you set up for yourselves to have dominion over you, will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers, and to be his virgins. For the king will take the virginity of every daughter before he suffers her to lie in the same bed as her husband. The king will require the flower from every girl which is betrothed to an husband. For the reasoning of the counselors and scribes and (Bishops) of the kingdom shall be that the king is better than the average citizens of the kingdom; and therefore, it shall be preferred to breed kings into the earth, rather than to breed peasants and farmers and servants and so forth. And the king, whom you set up for yourselves to have dominion over your own souls, will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your olive yards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants. And at the counsel of the (Bishops) which will stand next to the king and queen, filling their heads with ideas of how best to oppress the kingdom (which is you) in order to satisfy their lust of greed for the sake of more filthy lucre; they shall advise their kings to build fancy church buildings and establish rituals regarding tithes & offerings. And the king, whom you will worship, will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his own servants. And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your strongest donkeys, and your choicest rooks, and your female asses, and put them all to his own idea of work. And so, Samuel (with help) from some wood-cutters, carved sculptures which were symbolic of kings and queens and knights and bishops and rooks and pawns and created an animated pattern of war and oppression; hoping that the people would realize the results of war and shun the ideas of violence and turn from the illusiveness of division in consciousness, and cease to view distinctions between so-called kingdoms and cultures which perceive that they are not (one) based off of the deceitful divisiveness of imaginary borders. Howbeit, the people craved killing, and the spilling of blood was an excitement for them, and they loved the board game, and they used it for entertainment, rather than for an actual illustration of the consequences of what would manifest if they set kings over themselves in order to rule and oppress them and have dominion over their own souls and render themselves like as unto the beasts. And all the people shouted, and said, God save the king. And that began to be the object of the game of kings and queens. To save the king from being trapped into a snare which they named Check-Mate became the goal of the game which they named Chess. Now behold; this book is not for those which have no faith. For they shall profit nothing from it.
