O inverno está chegando. Em HQ. Você já leu os livros. Assistiu à série na HBO. Agora o romancista Daniel Abraham e o ilustrador Tommy Patterson apresentam a fantasia épica de George R. R. Martin na adaptação oficial para graphic novel. Este primeiro volume reúne as seis primeiras HQs originalmente publicadas nos EUA. “O inverno está chegando” é o lema da Casa Stark, o feudo mais ao norte entre os que devem fidelidade ao rei Robert Baratheon na distante Porto Real. Lá, Eddard Stark de Winterfell governa em nome do rei e vive em paz com sua mulher, Catelyn, seus filhos Rob, Brandon e Rickon, suas filhas Sansa e Arya e o bastardo Jon Snow. Mais ao norte, atrás da imponente Muralha, vivem os selvagens Wildlings. Sem falar nos eventos sobrenaturais, tratados como lendas durante o longo verão, mas que voltam a se mostrar mortais na mudança de estação. Depois que Jon Arryn, a Mão do Rei – segunda pessoa mais importante dos Sete Reinos depois de Vossa Majestade – morre em circunstâncias misteriosas, Robert se dirige a Winterfell com sua família: sua mulher, a rainha Cersei, seu filho, o príncipe Joffrey, e os irmãos da rainha, o esgrimista Jamie e o anão Tyrion, da poderosa Casa Lannister. Enquanto isso, através do Mar Estreito, o príncipe Viserys, herdeiro da derrotada Casa Targaryen, que uma vez governou toda Westeros, planeja recuperar o trono com o exército do bárbaro Dothraki Khal Drogo – cuja lealdade ele pretende obter com a única moeda que possui: sua bela e ainda inocente irmã, Daenerys.… (més)

This review refers to the whole Long Price Quartet series, by Daniel Abraham (A Shadow in Summer; A Betrayal in Winter; An Autumn War; The Price of Spring).

I had not read any epic fantasy by this author before, and I am very favorably impressed. They are really well-written. The world building and character development is impressive and the whole series is crafted very carefully, so that each book tells a complete story but each of them builds on the previous ones to tell an epic story that encompasses the whole lifetime of the main characters and the fall and renewal of great nations.

I found the magic system quite original. Magicians, although they are actually called poets, perform complex rituals to summon and bind andats, which are the personification of concepts and ideas. For example, a poet who successfully bound the andat Water-Moving-Down could gain control over the flow of rivers, and over rain. The problem is that being bound goes against the andats' nature. They hate being bound and apply all their effort and talent to fight the poet and get free. Also, each time an andat is bound it becomes much more difficult to bind it again, so by the time the story starts, the poets of the Khaiem find it extremely difficult to replace a lost andat.

On the negative side, sometimes the writer seems to force events and the motivation and power of the andat to get the story to where he wants it to be. It's a minor flaw in a wonderful work, though.

The story is complex and bittersweet, without dark lords and without the characters being divided into good and bad sides. Not all readers will enjoy it, since some will find them slow and lacking in action, but those who appreciate the thoughtful style and the character and plot development are in for a wonderful journey. To give you an idea, if you like Robin Hobb's or Guy Gavriel Kay's style you will probably like this.

For more information, you should read what Jo Walton says about them:
