A Clash of Kings Review.
None of us ever thought that someone would ever be able to meet the standards which we enjoyed from Tolkien’s book series. George R. R. Martin accepted the challenge and came up with book series which broke those enchantments of the LOTR series. There are already debates whether which one of these is the best. It is true that Tolkien is the father of fantasy but we cannot undermine Martin either.
Anyhow, A Clash of Kings would be something we would call a perfect sequel. The pace which we picked up in the first book never got down. In fact, it kept raising and since now it has entered the point of the war of the five kings, you cannot expect that pace to be slowing down at any point. This is exactly what we expect from this legendary fantasy writer.
