Când ai de-a face cu o capodoperă trebuie să ai alături cei mai buni artiști pentru a o adapta. De aceea cei aleși au fost Daniel Abraham și Tommy Patterson. Și din același motiv cei ce au citit celelalte două volume ale seriei de romane grafice nu pot contesta efortul considerabil depus de cei doi.
Eddard Stark este înconjurat de inamici. Unii sunt declarați precum Ser Jaime Lannister și sora lui, Regina Cersei. Alții stau ascunși în umbre și cotloane întunecate. Unii poartă măști binevoitoare și se prefac a fi de partea Lordului Eddard. Dar toți sunt letali.
Departe în Nord, bastardul Jon Snow, jurat al Rondului de Noapte ia contact cu ororile de dincolo de marginea lumii în timp ce dincolo de Marea Îngustă, Daenerys Targaryen se căsătorește cu mare lord Dothraki, Khal Drogo purtând în pântece copilul va conduce lumea.
When dealing with a masterpiece, only the best will do. That’s why writer Daniel Abraham and illustrator Tommy Patterson were chosen to adapt George R. R. Martin’s beloved fantasy classic A Game of Thrones as a graphic novel. And as anyone who has read the previous two collected volumes of the ongoing series can attest, the result has been a stunning tour de force faithful in every respect to its brilliant original.
In King’s Landing, Lord Eddard Stark of Winterfell—the Hand of King Robert Baratheon—is surrounded by enemies. Some are openly declared, such as Ser Jaime Lannister and his sister, Queen Cersei. Others are hidden in the shadows. Still others wear the smiling mask of friends. But all are deadly, as Eddard is about to discover.
Nor is the enmity between Eddard and the Lannister siblings the sole source of friction between these powerful noble families. For Tyrion Lannister, the Imp—whose stunted, twisted body houses the mind of a genius—has but lately won his freedom from Lady Catelyn Stark, Eddard’s wife, who had accused him of attempting to murder her youngest son, Brandon. Now he seeks out his father, his restless thoughts bent on revenge.
Far to the north, the bastard Jon Snow, newly sworn to the Night’s Watch, takes the first faltering steps toward a destiny stranger than he could ever dream—a destiny that will bring him face-to-face with unspeakable horrors from beyond the edge of the world.
While across the Narrow Sea, Daenerys Targaryen, wed to the great Dothraki warlord Khal Drogo, and pregnant with his child—a son prophesied to conquer the world—will see her own destiny take an unforeseen turn.
