A Dance with Dragons: Dreams and Dust
A Dance with Dragons follows the events surrounding the characters who weren’t mentioned in the previous novel, A Feast for Crows.
Tyrion Lannister has fled Westeros after murdering his father and there is a substantial price on his head but he finds hope in the thought he could join the dragon queen, Daenerys Targaryen in a rebellious move against his Lannister family. Daenerys (Am I the only one who dislikes her?) has decided to postpone her invasion of Westeros in order to allow herself to learn how to rule but she faces many snags from the inconsistent support of those around her and too many who are keen to control her. Jon Snow, now Lord Commander of the Night’s watch is struggling to remain impartial following the aid he received from King Stannis but he rallies the captured Wildlings to his cause to help man the wall. We are reunited with Theon Greyjoy after a prolonged absence from the series – now the captive of Ramsay Bolton, he is being extensively tortured and brought to a new low after all of his success in destroying Winterfell. We also reunite with Bran who is still travelling beyond the wall to find the three-eyed raven but the white walkers are abundant beyond the wall…
I don’t actually have much to comment on this novel… it’s much like the others but this time without anything particularly groundbreaking or everybody dying. That’s not to say it’s a bad novel but it’s just more of the same to be honest… A good read nonetheless.
