A Game of Thrones #18
Intended for mature audiences
After the death of Viserys, Khal Drogo seems content to forget his promise to conquer Westeros for his wife, Daenerys-until an assassination attempt stirs him to vows of vengeance. Vengeance is also in the air at King's Landing, where Joffrey, newly enthroned, names Tywin Lannister as the King's Hand... while Sansa Stark pleads for the life of her father, now named a traitor to the crown. Locked away, injured and in disgrace, Eddard is offered a final bargain: For the price of his honor, he may yet save his life... and that of his daughter.
