Faculty Favorite: Mr. Boruszak

Question: Which medieval fantasy book series was made into an HBO series that has won more awards than you can count on two hands? Ding, ding, ding… if you guessed “Game of Thrones,” you’re CORRECT!

George R. R. Martin’s series A Song of Ice and Fire, otherwise known as the “Game of Thrones” series on HBO, is a NY Times #1 best-seller. It also happens to be Mr. Boruszak’s favorite read. He’s a “Huge fan of anything fantasy!” he says.  He also recommends the “Wheel of Time” Series by Robert Jordan.

Summers span decades. Winter can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun.

As Warden of the north, Lord Eddard Stark counts it a curse when King Robert bestows on him the office of the Hand. His honour weighs him down at court where a true man does what he will, not what he must … and a dead enemy is a thing of beauty.

The old gods have no power in the south, Stark’s family is split and there is treachery at court. Worse, the vengeance-mad heir of the deposed Dragon King has grown to maturity in exile in the Free Cities. He claims the Iron Throne.
