In the aftermath of a colossal battle, the future of the Seven Kingdoms hangs in the balance once again--beset by newly emerging threats from every direction. In the east, Daenerys Targaryen, the last scion of House Targaryen, rules with her three dragons as queen of a city built on dust and death. But Daenerys has three times three thousand enemies, and many have set out to find her. Yet, as they gather, one young man embarks upon his own quest for the queen, with an entirely different goal in mind.To the north lies the mammoth Wall of ice and stone--a structure only as strong as those guarding it. There, Jon Snow, 998th Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch, will face his greatest challenge yet. For he has powerful foes not only within the Watch but also beyond, in the land of the creatures of ice.And from all corners, bitter conflicts soon reignite, intimate betrayals are perpetrated, and a grand cast of outlaws and priests, soldiers and skinchangers, nobles and slaves, will face seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Some will fail, others will grow in the strength of darkness. But in a time of rising restlessness, the tides of destiny and politics will lead inevitably to the greatest dance of all. . . . Dubbed “the American Tolkien” by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the #1 New York Times bestselling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series--as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

The only reason why I managed to finish this monster book of monsters is because I went over to the audiobook version. I'm not sure if I should recommend it though. While the man does the male voices well, the female voices are a horror to listen to. The rest of the text is read as if the man was ha...

I have to admit I feel a bit deflated after finishing this book. I think this is one of the best fantasy series possibly ever, and while I am sure I will choose to finish the series, the longer this novel went on the more I had the feeling that there is no way this series can end in a way that won't...

3.0 Just Finished Reactions & Progress Post: A Dance with Dragons by George R.R. Martin
I'VE FINALLY CAUGHT UP!! I CAN NOW TRAVERSE THE INTERNET WITH ABANDON! And I was really happy that I blocked out a spoiler that I had read until after I had read it. Lots of twist. This book was way better than the last one. If I ever did a reread, I would read those two in tandem following this spo...

5.0 A Dance with Dragons by George R. R. Martin
(Okay, I lost control in this review. It was literally written at 3.00 am. and I had just finished the book. It starts off alright with a good idea and I was planning on writing about maybe five characters, and then all over sudden I'd written about more or less everyone. Not literally of course, as...

We knew going into this that it wasn't likely to advance the storyline much, since it covered much of the same time as the fourth book. However, it does complicate the plot nicely and fill in a lot of the simultaneous action. I'd argue also that, as does the long "camping" scene in Harry Potter and ...
