De son côté, Arya, la fille de Ned et Catelyn Stark, a semé les siens en s’embarquant pour Braavos.

Pendant ce temps, à Vieux Wyk, les états généraux de la royauté, ordonnés par le dieu Noyé à la maison Greyjoy, tournent vite à la foire d’empoigne sous la présidence du prophète Aeron Tifs-Trempes...

L uf de dragon 90 ans avant le Tr ne de Fer
Quatre-vingt-dix ans avant les péripéties du Trône de Fer, Aegon, de la lignée royale, surnommé l’Œuf, court les routes incognito comme écuyer d’un chevalier errant, Dunk. Au hasard des chemins, le duo se voit convié par le fringant Jehan le Ménétrier à participer à un tournoi richement doté qui sera le clou des noces de lord Beurpuits. Au champion ira le grand prix, un inestimable oeuf de dragon. Mais il apparaît bientôt que les noces et le tournoi sont un nid d’intrigues et d’ambitions, petites et grandes, et qu’une prophétie annonce de grands événements. De fait, après la rébellion, les partisans de Daemon Feunoyr, qui a chassé quelques années plus tôt la fine fleur des chevaliers en exil de l’autre côté de la mer, fomentent une nouvelle conspiration. Certains souhaitent déposer le souverain légitime pour installer leur propre prétendant. À leur corps défendant, Dunk et l’Œuf se retrouvent au coeur du complot.
Set in the 21st century - between 20 and 60 years from now - The Sparrow is the story of a charismatic Jesuit priest and talented linguist, Emilio Sandoz, who - in response to a remarkable radio signal from the depths of space - leads a scientific mission to make first contact with an extraterrestrial culture. In the true tradition of Jesuit adventurers before him, Sandoz and his companions are prepared to endure isolation, suffering - even death - but nothing can prepare them for the civilisation they encounter, or for the tragic misunderstanding that brings the mission to a devastating end. Once considered a living saint, Sandoz returns alone to Earth horrifically maimed, both physically and spiritually, the mission's sole survivor - only to be blamed for the mission's failure and accused of heinous crimes. Written in clean, effortless prose and peopled with memorable, superbly-realised characters who never lose their humanity or humour, The Sparrow is a powerful, haunting fiction - a tragic but ultimately triumphant novel about the nature of faith, of love and what it means to be 'human'.

A Game of Thrones 4 Book Bundle
George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series has become, in many ways, the gold standard for modern epic fantasy. Martin—dubbed the "American Tolkien" by Time magazine—has created a world that is as rich and vital as any piece of historical fiction, set in an age of knights and chivalry and filled with a plethora of fascinating, multidimensional characters that you love, hate to love, or love to hate as they struggle for control of a divided kingdom. It is this very vitality that has led it to be adapted as the HBO miniseries “Game of Thrones.” This bundle includes the following novels: A GAME OF THRONES A CLASH OF KINGS A STORM OF SWORDS A FEAST FOR CROWS
From George R. R. Martin's Introduction to Warriors: "People have been telling stories about warriors for as long as they have been telling stories. Since Homer first sang the wrath of Achilles and the ancient Sumerians set down their tales of Gilgamesh, warriors, soldiers, and fighters have fascinated us; they are a part of every culture, every literary tradition, every genre. All Quiet on the Western Front, From Here to Eternity, and The Red Badge of Courage have become part of our literary canon, taught in classrooms all around the country and the world. Our contributors make up an all-star lineup of award-winning and bestselling writers, representing a dozen different publishers and as many genres. We asked each of them for the same thing—a story about a warrior. Some chose to write in the genre they're best known for. Some decided to try something different. You will find warriors of every shape, size, and color in these pages, warriors from every epoch of human history, from yesterday and today and tomorrow, and from worlds that never were. Some of the stories will make you sad, some will make you laugh, and many will keep you on the edge of your seat." The stories in the second mass market volume of this book are: Introduction: Stories of the Spinner Rack, by George R. R. Martin Seven Years from Home, by Naomi Novik Dirae, by Peter S. Beagle Ancient Ways, by S. M. Stirling The Scroll, by David Ball Recidivist, by Gardner Dozois Ninieslando, by Howard Waldrop Out of the Dark, by David Weber Many of these writers are bestsellers.
