Description

Available only on iBooks, 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.

With A Game of Thrones, George R. R. Martin launched a genuine masterpiece, bringing together the best the genre has to offer. Mystery, intrigue, romance, and adventure fill the pages of this magnificent saga, the first volume in an epic series.

Long ago, in a time forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons out of balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister forces are massing beyond the kingdom's protective Wall. To the south, the king's powers are failing—his most trusted adviser dead under mysterious circumstances and his enemies emerging from the shadows of the throne. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the frozen land they were born to. Now Lord Eddard Stark is reluctantly summoned to serve as the king's new Hand, an appointment that threatens to sunder not only his family but the kingdom itself.

Sweeping from a harsh land of cold to a summertime kingdom of epicurean plenty, A Game of Thrones tells a tale of lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and bastards, who come together in a time of grim omens. Here an enigmatic band of warriors bear swords of no human metal; a tribe of fierce wildlings carry men off into madness; a cruel young dragon prince barters his sister to win back his throne; a child is lost in the twilight between life and death; and a determined woman undertakes a treacherous journey to protect all she holds dear. Amid plots and counter-plots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, allies and enemies, the fate of the Starks hangs perilously in the balance, as each side endeavors to win that deadliest of conflicts: the game of thrones.

  • A Game Of Thrones Enhanced Edition

    I love the enhanced edition of these books I already own all the current books so far in this series in many different formats I have them in hardcover as well as audiobook on audible & ive gotta say that the enhanced edition is by far the coolest version & my favorite. All the special things you can do with the enhanced edition is what sets this version apart from all the rest. I would say that for only $8 it’s worth buying it even if you already own it in another format. I see that other people have reviewed it but nobody has actually wrote a review yet. If your still wondering if you should buy it then my suggestion would be to try out the free preview it gives you 80 pages of free reading so try that & then make your decision but I totally think it’s worth it especially if your a huge fan of game of thrones.

    This is a part of my library, yet when I attempt to download via the iBooks app ‘cloud’ icon... I’m presented a dialog box “this item will available in your library when book has finished downloading” and proceeds to absolutely nothing. Nothing like stating the obvious... if I can’t download it how am I supposed to read it?
  • Best fantasy in the best cover. Enjoy your experience from first line to the end of series.

    I love to read George Martin! His books so interesting and so well written, that during reading your imagination creates a pictures. Imagine that’s now you have great illustrators who actually create interactive images in the book! Your reading experience will not be comparable to way you read before! For people, especially us, who likes fantasies, it is amazing experience. Thank you for wrap a Great story written by George Martin into this interactive book, it is a best way to present it.
  • Great edition of the story with an annoying bug

    I have bought all 5 books of this enhanced edition and I have to say the extra content is truly amazing. I cannot say enough how much I have been enjoying rereading the books along with the interesting tidbits of trivia. The maps look great too and the information in the appendix is presented in way more accessible way than in the actual books. I would rate 5 stars, if not for the annoying bug that makes the chapter titles have a white background even when the night view is turned on (using iBooks in my iPad 5th gen and iPhone 6s with iOS 11). The same problem is present in books 4 and 5, but oddly it is fixed for books 2 and 3. Could you please fix this for the rest of the books? It is making an otherwise excellent edition look a bit sloppy.
  • Great book but problematic edition

    The story itself is fantastic and I'm reading through it for the second time. However, the enhanced edition keeps losing my place each time I exit the app, placing me at one specific location each time and never giving an option to return to my true location.
