Game of Thrones (A Song of ice and Fire), George R.R Martin
£4, Kindlestore, iBookstore
If you love a Lord of the Rings-style epic fantasy, this five-part tale of feuding families, war, sex, carnage, bloodshed, deception and the desperate pursuit of power – oh, and did we mention the woman who breast feeds dragons? – ticks all the high fantasy epic boxes. Set in the fictional land of Westeros, clans have lived and fought for generations until the Targaryens declare war, uniting the Seven Kingdoms under the Iron Throne, and that's when all the above stuff comes in. And did we mention the bit about the woman who breast feeds dragons? Bizarre.
