Book 4 of A Song of Ice and Fire
The Lannisters are in power on the Iron Throne.
The war in the Seven Kingdoms has burned itself out, but in its bitter aftermath new conflicts spark to life. The Martells of Dorne and the Starks of Winterfell see vengeance for their dead. Euron Crow’s Eye, as black a pirate as ever raised a sail, returns from the smoking ruins of Valyria to claim the Iron Isles.
From the icy north, where Others threaten the Wall, apprentice Maester Samwell Tarly brings a mysterious babe in arms to the Citadel. As plots, intrigue and battle threaten to engulf Westeros, victory will go to the men and women possessed of the coldest steel and the coldest hearts.
Two months. That’s how long it took me to make my way through A Feast for Crows. We’ve gone from the 5 Kings to the 3 Queens. Pretty stagnant throughout – setting up the pieces so they can fall in the next book. The most gratifying part was vicarious revenge. It’s a long fall from the top.
