Os combates estendem-se pelas terras fluviais e os grandes exércitos dos Stark e dos Lannister preparam-se para o derradeiro embate. No seu domínio insular, Stannis, irmão do falecido Rei Robert, luta por construir um exército que suporte a sua reivindicação ao trono e alia-se a uma misteriosa religião vinda do oriente. Mas não é o único, pois o seu irmão mais novo também se proclama rei, suportado por uma hoste que reúne quase todas as forças do sul. Para pior as coisas, nas Ilhas de Ferro, os Greyjoy planeiam a vingança contra aqueles que os humilharam dez anos atrás.O Trono de Ferro é ocupado pelo caprichoso filho de Robert, Joffrey, mas quem de facto governa é a sua merciless e maquiavélica mãe. Com a afluência de refugiados e um fornecimento insuficiente de mantimentos, a cidade transformou-se num lugar perigoso, e a Corte aguarda com medo o momento em que os dois irmãos do falecido rei avancem contra ela. Mas quando finalmente o fazem, não é contra a cidade que investem...O que os Sete Reinos não sabem é que nada disto se compara ao derradeiro perigo que se avizinha: no distante Leste, os dragões crescem em poder, e não faltará muito para que cheguem com fogo e morte!
