Read full description of the books A Muralha de Gelo:O segundo volume de «As Crónicas de Gelo e Fogo», a melhor série de fantasia da actualidade. Eddard Stark só aceitou o prestigiado cargo de Mão do Rei para proteger o rei... Ou não suspeitasse que o anterior detentor desse título fora mandado assassinar pela rainha. Mas agora Eddard tem a certeza que foi ela. E também sabe a razão: a rainha tem um segredo escabroso que pode levar à queda da dinastia e mesmo à guerra civil! E como se a conspiração palaciana não bastasse, tudo piora quando o rei Robert Baratheon é ferido mortalmente por um animal numa caçada. Mas a Mão do Rei já desconfia de tudo: terá sido mesmo um animal... ou o trabalho de mais um assassino da rainha? Um homem honrado e justo, Eddard Stark começa a temer ser derrotado pelo ninho de víboras que é a Corte e a Casa Lannister. Mas a ameaça de guerra civil não é a pior sombra que paira no ar. No norte, para lá da muralha de gelo, uma força misteriosa manifesta-se de maneira sobrenatural. E ainda mais longe, a última herdeira dos Targaryen prepara-se para invadir os Sete Reinos com o maior exército alguma vez visto... e com o auxílio de dragões!
