A Song of Ice and Fire Audiobooks
Due to the limitations in making TV/film productions, George R. R. Martin returned to writing novels, and it was time for A Song of Ice and Fire. First he planned it to be a novel trilogy, but then the series has been intended to be seven volumes. The first volume, A Game of Thrones (1996), has inspired the variety of book lovers worldwide. The second volume, A Feast for Crows (2005), continued to achieve honors from experts and readers, became the #1 New York Times bestseller, and nominated for the Quill Award and British Fantasy Award. Following the success of the first two books, the American author worked hard to launch the next three books in the series of seven volumes. The fifth volume is A Dance with Dragons published in 2011, and the final two volumes, The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring, will be published (in audiobooks) once they are done by the author.
