Why did it become so deadly to visit Valyria after the doom? This, in turn, helped GRRM to keep some secrets up his sleeves.
A similar strategy ensues here, that the versions of history could always have a potential of political motivation or superimpositions over time. And thus there is no commitment to any one of them.
This helps in accommodating the changes in the narrative that could happen in the final two books of the ASOIAF series.
The new book also has its own added flesh. A more detailed look at the world of Valyria or the doom that the Targaryens could foresee would have been a pleasant surprise. It moves forward with the tales of future Targaryen generations that fought to retain control over the seven kingdoms brought together by Aegon the Conqueror. And ahead into the civil war Dance of the Dragons that vanquished most of the dragons from Westeros and proved almost apocalyptic for the Targaryen dynasty.
Eventually, Alicent has a grim and lonely fate waiting for her. The book has been published by Bantam Books on November 20, True, it has been several years since I last read the first three books in this sprawling and over-populated fantasy epic.
Not a favorite of mine, personality-wise, but her journey is certainly intriguing considering the situation in which she ends up. My only criticism from back in , when I read this last, was that there were too damn many minor characters to keep track of.
And which often distracted me from the main plot-lines. Flipping back and forth between the narrative and the appendix at the back was less helpful, and more disorienting, and it could be jarring as it would break my concentration on the scene at hand.
Not to mention the youngest Stark, Rickon, who is a perfect example of a very minor character that is remarkably fleshed out, although he appears in less than two entire pages in the nine-hundred and seven pages of dense text.
And I could go on and on, but I would end up being a verbose as Martin.
It is no exaggeration to say that Martin has been dubbed the American Tolkien. He is. Like p PopTart Apr 22, Believe me when I say even if you don't like fantasy, you will problably like this book.
The series' tag line is the sopranos in middle earth.
It has everything. It seems so real that you can almost forget that it's fiction. The shows amazing so far, so good and the book is even better. Two warnings.
