4.5 feast of crows another good book darkdruid1 | 30/12/2012 | See all darkdruid1's reviews (13) when i first started to read this book initially i thought whats going on the book seemed to lose the thread of the previous books.It then seltted down to concentrate on a core of charactors and quickly gained my interest and i couldnt put it down. It basically concentrates on the lannisters and there rise to pwer and then there impending doom. It also gives life to an up and coming charactor samwell who is fast becoming a hero.It mentions the wall and the rise of snow and briefly the dragon queen.The previous books are awash with charactors coming in to the story and then being killed off quite quickly. This book is alot more focussed which actually makes it easier to read. I would have given this book 5 stars but the first 50 or so pages lost me slightly. once past that the book started concentrating on known charactors which saved the book.
