Description


Cuando los reyes están en guerra, toda la tierra tiembla…
 
“Ahora hay más reyes en el reino que ratas en un castillo”, afirma uno de los personajes de Choque de reyes. Después de la sospechosa muerte de Robert Baratheon, el monarca de los Siete Reinos, su hijo Joffrey ha sido impuesto por la fuerza, aunque “quienes realmente gobiernan son su madre, un eunuco y un enano”, como dice la voz del pueblo. Cuatro nobles se proclaman, a la vez, reyes legítimos, y las tierras de Poniente se estremecen entre guerras y traiciones. Y todo este horror se encuentra presidido por la más ominosa de las señales: un inmenso cometa color sangre suspendido en el cielo.

En esta novela prodigiosa nada es realmente lo que parece ser. Los protagonistas, trazados con una complejidad asombrosa, son capaces de hacerse odiar o amar desde las primeras páginas. George R. R. Martin, con pulso firme y enérgico, vuelve a ofrecernos un brillante despliegue de personajes en una trama rica, densa y sorprendente. Nos convierte en testigos de luchas fratricidas, intrigas y traiciones palaciegas en una tierra maldita, donde fuerzas ocultas se alzan de nuevo y acechan para reinar en las noches del largo invierno que se avecina.

From the publisher:

"In this richly imaginative debut novel, the first running of the Kentucky Derby serves as the backdrop for a story of what might have been had Abraham Lincoln survived his assassination and lived to retire with Mary to Springfield.  Derby historian Ross R. Moore provides an accurate account of the origins of the famous race, while creating a detailed and entirely plausible world through which the Lincoln's journey to Louisville to meet old friends and to face another deadly threat.  Part horse racing saga, part travelogue, part historical fantasy, part suspense thriller, chock full of sly bits of "stealth history" befitting its educator author, and peopled with memorable characters both real and imaginary, the result is an entertaining and engaging yarn and rewarding read."

Ross R. Moore is an educator, storyteller, and singer-songwriter living in San Diego.  A native of Kentucky where he attended Murray State University and the University of Louisville, he was for several years a museum educator at the Kentucky Derby Museum, sharing the history of the race with visitors. Now he brings this story to a wider audience, drawing upon his knowledge of Derby lore to form the backdrop of this, his first novel.
