One warning. Don't expect any happy endings in this book! This book is full of the brutality of war and all it entails. This book has pulled me further into the world of dragons, fire and ice! I can't wait to read book 3.
If the first book was all set up, this book was for kicking back in your comfy chair, putting your feet up and settling in for the long haul. There were a lot of repeating motifs and themes throughout this book and the various storylines, but Martin never uses them in quite the same way. It makes it...
