By George R. R. Martin

Quando Eddard Stark, lorde de Winterfell, recebe a visita do rei Robert está longe de adivinhar que a sua vida e a da sua família vai entrar numa espiral de conspiração e morte. Durante a estadia, o rei convida-o a mudar-se para a corte e a assumir a posição de Mão do Rei. Este aceita pois desconfia que o anterior detentor desse título foi envenenado pela própria rainha, uma merciless manipuladora do clã Lannister. Perto do rei, Eddard tem esperança de o proteger da soberana, mas ter os Lannister como inimigos é deadly: a ambição deles não tem limites e o rei corre um perigo muito maior do que Eddard temia! Sozinho na corte, o lorde de Winterfell apercebe-se que também a sua vida nada vale. E até a sua família, longe no norte, pode estar em perigo. Uma galeria de personagens brilhantes dá vida a esta saga: o anão Tyrion, ovelha negra do clã Lannister; Jon Snow, bastardo de Eddard Stark que make a decision juntar-se à Patrulha da Noite, e a princesa Daenerys Targaryen, da dinastia que reinou antes de Robert, que pretende ressuscitar os dragões do passado para recuperar o trono, custe o que custar.
