1. A Clash of Kings

Only read A Game of Thrones? Try the next in the series. George R. R. Martin did not waver in talent or effectiveness when he created the second book in the A Song Of Ice And Fire series. A Clash Of Kings offers everything A Game Of Thrones does from a brutal betrayal standpoint, especially from characters we thought we could trust in the first book. Hold onto your seats; the entire series is packed with action!

From author Joe Abercrombie, Best Served Cold is a stand-alone read set in an epic fantasy world at war. As in A Game of Thrones, the world is separated into different kingdoms, each ruled and governed independently. Blood must be shed, armies must march and cities must burn. Revenge is always Best Served Cold. Sound familiar? This one is sure to resonate with GOT fans!
