Imagine a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime. Families as tough and harsh as the lands they try to tame. The Starks are one such family, honor bound to the land, the gods they serve, and to each other. It's a time of magic, of Lords and ladies, of knights and soldiers, assassin's and Bastards, barbarians and nobles. They all come together in a time that is ripe with ill omens, treachery, betrayal, and tragedy. Follow the Starks as they weave the plots and counter plots of victory and terror in the capitol city where political intrigue is the norm. Among all of this a supernatural terror hangs over the whole of the Seven kingdoms. It comes from north of the wall.
