Epic in scope and in imaginative breadth, the stories that the show has brought to life, across eight seasons and 74 hours of programming, tell of the dramatic rise and fall of nations, the brutal sweeping away of old orders and the advent of new autarchs in their eternal quest for dominion. Yet within these grand landscapes, as Carolyne Larrington divulges, may be found more intimate narratives of love and passion as well as of death - tales that focus on strong relationships between women as well as among the 'cripples, bastards and broken things', as George R R Martin describes his anti-heroes. In this vital follow-up to her earlier Winter is Coming, the author explores themes of power, blood-kin, lust and sex in order to put entirely fresh meanings on the show of the century.
