The future of the Seven Kingdoms hangs in the balance.
In King’s Landing the Queen Regent, Cersei Lannister, awaits trial, abandoned by all those she trusted; while in the eastern city of Yunkai her brother Tyrion has been sold as a slave. From the Wall, having left his wife and the Red Priestess Melisandre under the protection of Jon Snow, Stannis Baratheon marches south to confront the Boltons at Winterfell. But beyond the Wall the wildling armies are massing for an assault…
On all sides bitter conflicts are reigniting, played out by a grand cast of outlaws and priests, soldiers and skinchangers, nobles and slaves. The tides of destiny will inevitably lead to the greatest dance of all. -Goodreads
My Rating: 5/5
What a book! I can see why everyone is desperate for Martin to finish the series – but I can also see why Martin is taking so long over it! There is so much more to cover.
When you finish this book, you realise just how much the TV show missed out and skipped over. All because they wanted to rush though the story and only tell the Jon and Dany story – fair enough, but I wish everyone who watched the show would read the books! I’m glad I finally got to this point. There is so much more to the story – so much to explore and enjoy. Jon and Dany’s storylines in this book end on cliffhangers, as does Aegon’s…
I’m very excited for the next book! I honestly have no idea how these stories are going to end as they feel so different from the show, and that’s good. I was worried I would get bored reading the books but I was wrong – they’re great!
