This is fantasy on a new level. Forget fairies, elves, and magic -this book is much darker than all that. Set in a medieval country very similar to Old England, these series of books follow the life stories of a noble family named Stark. There will be deaths and lots of graphic descriptions. You will be absorbed in a way you never have been before. And you will find yourself haunting the author's website, like I do, for any hint of the newest book being finished.
