About the book:(from Goodreads)Of the five contenders for power, one is dead, another in disfavor, and still the wars rage as alliances are made and broken.

Young Robb still rules the North from the fortress of Riverrun. Meanwhile, making her way across a blood-drenched continent is the exiled queen, Daenerys, mistress of the only three dragons still left in the world.

As the future of the land hangs in the balance, no one will rest until the Seven Kingdoms have exploded in a veritable storm of swords...(more)

My Review: 4 out of 5 stars

I really like roy avers voice also the shift of characters POVs I'm really surprised :0

In half a heart beat a lot of people died.SEVEN BLOODY HELLS!

Valar morghulis!

That moment when I realized Daenerys is one of the most kickass female fictional character. I wanna learn & speak valyrian! Dracarys!

Everything sounds so convincing I don't know which one/who to believe anymore.There's no safe place or when you think you ends there.

Well at least Sansa got a bit of character development and Arya seems to be everywhere.Jon Snow don't know anything you bastard! Yngritte gets on my nerves saying the same old lines over and over why can't she just say it instead of saying "you don't know anything Jon Snow" ugh
Jaimie looks like a changed man I mean like holy sheeeet I can't believe they actually did that to him.I'd like to ship Brienne of Tarth & him (Jaimie) so weird I know but it might actually work. XD

Sam the slayer Gods be good!

There are a lot of things going on and moving about in this book it's absolutely wonderful! George RR Martin made killing off characters looked flawless!
