Clash of Crows (book 2, Song of Ice and Fire, Game of Thrones)
Continuing the massiveness of George RR Martin's Game of Thrones series, I had a couple of deadlines to take care of, so I ended up reading this book only as end-of-evening reading material. The amount of detail continues to astound me, and the way Martin manages to include enough soap opera-like detail to these books, just in case you get tired of the violence and gore (of which there is plenty). I haven't seen the HBO series except as part of an On-Demand special thing, so part of the first season. Is this series (both book and TV) the reason incest seemed to be a hot topic (so to speak) all of a sudden? Anyway, despite its size, intriguing enough to get me to read it, and look forward to book 3.
Coming up: Storm of Swords, book 3, George RR Martin (Game of Thrones); Reunited in Danger, Joya Fields
