By George R. R. Martin
O Norte jaz devastado e num completo vazio de poder. A Patrulha da Noite, abalada pelas perdas sofridas para lá da Muralha e com uma grande falta de homens, está nas mãos de Jon Snow, que tenta afirmar-se no comando tomando decisões difíceis respeitantes ao autoritário Rei Stannis, aos selvagens e aos próprios homens que comanda. Para lá da Muralha, a viagem de Bran prossegue. Mas outras viagens convergem para a Baía dos Escravos, onde as cidades dos esclavagistas sangram e Daenerys Targaryen descobre que é bastante mais fácil conquistar uma cidade do que substituir de um dia para o outro todo um sistema político e económico. Conseguirá ela enfrentar as intrigas e ódios que se avolumam enquanto os seus dragões crescem para se tornarem nas criaturas temíveis que um dia conquistarão os Sete Reinos?
