The price of glory . . .
From the ancient citadel of dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns as pretenders to the Iron Throne and the Seven Kingdoms prepare to stake their claims. As a prophecy of doom cuts across the sky - a comet the colour of blood and flame - five factions struggle for control of a divided land. Against a backdrop of incest and fratricide, alchemy and murder, the price of glory is measured in blood.
