By George R.R Martin

The game of thrones by george rr martin - adult fantasy books

The most popular book and a series of fantasy books. This is the first book in A song of ice and fire series. It was first published on August 1, 1996. People love to read, that’s why the book won the 1997 Locus award and was nominated for both the 1997 nebula award and the 1997 world fantasy award.

It is a very long book about 694 pages and there are too many characters present in this book that’s why the games of the throne can be broken down into three stories.

Basically, the story is about the civil war over who should be the king, and also while an exiled princess tries to find her place in the war, the kingdom is endangered by some soaring metaphysical threat in the north.

 So I have recommended these books to everyone who would never pick up a fantasy book, much less one so long.
