|Battles of Westeros | Published 29 June 2010|
Animosity seethes between the old Houses of Stark and Lannister. Lord Eddard Stark of Winterfell never forgave the ambitious killing of Aerys Targaryen by Jamie “the Kingslayer” Lannister, who was sworn to loyally guard his king. This old rivalry now turns into an escalating war between the two Houses as a game of thrones begins.

-A Game of Thrones, George R.R. Martin

Rashley - the UK release date is apparently the 2nd July, so there's only a couple of days to wait.
