A Song of Ice and Fire is a fantasy opus by George R. R. Martin.

Three are yet to come:

  • The Winds of Winter forthcoming
  • not yet named, tentatively called A Time for Wolves forthcoming

There are supposed to be six books, but as of now, there are names for seven books.

A Song of Ice and Fire is set in a fictitious world reminiscent of Europe in the Middle Ages, except for the fact that in this world, seasons can last decades. The plot is recounted from the perspectives of more than ten main characters and takes place on the two continents of Westeros and Valyria[?], the former being the locale of fierce power struggles between several aristocratic families after the death of king Robert Baratheon, who by lineage, marriage and personal relationships had united them all. Meanwhile, the last offspring of House Targaryen, which had ruled over Westeros before being expelled by Robert and his allies, is trying to find allies herself to reconquer the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. But all of them ignore the oncoming winter and the dangers it brings about.
