12—A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin

In this, the 2nd book of Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series, installment Martin continues the saga which began in The Game of Thrones. All the elements are there but I had to struggle to keep the characters straight. The intrigue, the deceptions, the different families, the battles, who's sleeping with whom all make for an interesting read.
