A Clash of Kings is by George R.R. Martin. The second book in the fabulous A Song of Ice and Fire series. This installment follows the trials of the Starks, Lannisters, Baratheons, Targaryens, and their banner men as they war for the throne of the Seven Kingdoms. Stannis and Renly Baratheon have both declared themselves the rightful king, while Joffrey Lannister sits on the Iron Throne. Robb Stark is King of the North and fights the Lannisters to avenge the murder of his father and rescue his sisters. Daenerys and her dragons roam the East seeking for a way to return to the Seven Kingdoms and claim the throne for herself. In addition to the main characters we also follow the struggles of Sansa, Arya, and Bran Stark and their father's former ward, Theon Greyjoy - and then there's Tyrion the Imp and his schemes. If you were sucked in by Game of Thrones you will LOVE this second book and hunger for more.
