The second novel of Martin's titanic Song of Ice and Fire saga. Author has created a real world, with all the vices of our own, and given all his characters life; Martin's characters bring a more realistic spin on knighthood and war. This type of interwoven story is not uncommon but the trick is keeping the entire tale intriguing enough to keep the reader going. Martin does it so well that it's hard to decide which plotline, or which of the major characters.
The novel is notable particularly for the lived-in quality of its world, created through abundant detail that dramatically increases narrative length even as it aids suspension of disbelief; for the comparatively modest role of magic.
