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.

Unless you have been living under a rock, you will have heard of George R. R. Martin's Fire and Ice series (either the books or the TV show). This is a review of the last book in the series (so far, but no one seems to know when the sixth book is coming out), so if you are interested in this series ...
Wow! I really feel like WOW!There are a lot of events that I didn't know about, though I watched the series! Maybe this is the best book in the whole series. Full of events and drama. Recommended.
I haven't posted on this site for a while, so in the meantime I read this, which brings me up to date with Martin. It gets better in this one, so I have hope for the next one. In theory it should come out next year, maybe. I just want to slap him for how he ended it though. Yeah, same as the tel...
