5 Outstandingcitruskid | 07/06/2010 | See all citruskid's reviews (5)When i first read this book i didnt get past the fisrt 100 pages. I thought the book was going off the main story line and i did not enjoy it. With the news of the first in this series becoming a HBO tv series i decided to read the books released so far again. This time round i found the book a joy to read. Martin has split this book into two. The second being a Dance of Dragons (yet to be released). Half of the major charactors are not mentioned as their story will run parallel with those of a Feast of Crows in the up coming book. As usual there are plenty of new twists and plots added to this book. from time to time you get a 'stayle' chapter but its worth persuing as they all set the stage for the next plot twist. A great read for any who likes fantasy. I would infact go as far as to say, you do not like fantasy novels until you have read these books!
