Nel cielo dei Sette Regni, travolti da una guerra devastatrice, compare una cometa dal sinistro colore di sangue. È l'ennesimo segno di immani catastrofi che si stanno preparando? L'estate dell'abbondanza sembra ormai definitivamente passata, e ben quattro condottieri si contendono ferocemente il Trono di Spade. Intanto al di là del mare caldo l'orgogliosa principessa in esilio Daenerys Targaryen è pronta a rischiare tutto per la corona che le appartiene di diritto. Solo per lei, forse, la cometa di sangue non è un presagio di tragedia ma l'araldo della riscossa. Mentre lo scontro continua, qualcuno tesse un'inesorabile tela di morte. All'estremo Nord, oltre la Barriera di ghiaccio, forze oscure vanno facendosi sempre più minacciose... In una terra di sinistra magia e violenza, ma anche di eroismo e passione, è ambientato il secondo volume della saga "Le cronache del ghiaccio e del fuoco". Edizione speciale: grazie alla collaborazione con HBO e i loro graphic designer, un nuovo progetto grafico che sorprenderà i collezionisti e gli amanti del genere.
