Summaries of the Books

Click here to see a chapter-by-chapter summary of:

  • A Game of Thrones
  • A Clash of Kings
  • A Storm of Swords
  • The Winds of Winter
  • Note: These summaries are concise descriptions of the major events that take place in the chapters of the novels. They are not meant to give details- they certainly are not substitutes for reading the books!!

    For the sake of brevity, I decided not to write about the characters remembering their past, although they often spend considerable time doing so. For example, Dany in her first chapter spends some time reminiscing about the fall of the Targaryens and her red house in Braavos, but I only mention that she is getting ready for a meeting with Khal Drogo before she is sold to him.
