La "vittoria" del leone dei Lannister ha lasciato un'interminabile scia di sangue: sepolto l'infame lord Tywin, assassinato dal proprio figlio nano, finita in catene la regina Cersei, seduto il piccolo re Tommen su un trono di lame pronte a ucciderlo, il destino dell'intero continente occidentale è di nuovo in bilico. Sulla remota Barriera di ghiaccio il temerario Jon Snow è costretto a consolidare con le armi il suo rango di lord comandante dei guardiani della notte mentre, al di là del Mare Stretto, Daenerys Targaryen, l'intrepida Regina dei Draghi, continua a difendere il proprio dominio contro orde di nemici antichi e nuovi. In fuga verso le città libere, il parricida Tyrion Lannister potrebbe essere la chiave di volta della restaurazione della mai realmente estinta dinastia del Drago. Tutto questo però potrebbe rivelarsi disperatamente inutile. Perché ora, veramente... l'inverno sta arrivando. Edizione speciale: grazie alla collaborazione con HBO e i loro graphic designer, un nuovo progetto grafico che sorprenderà i collezionisti e gli amanti del genere.

"Words are wind," says George R. R. Martin (GRRM) no less than 13 times in the latest installment of his A Song of Ice and Fire series. In this incredibly windy tome there was very little advancement of the overall story and no resolution to any of the myriad plot threads. Instead, most of the b
Tyrion Lannister's horse was rubbing him raw as they rode onward, the branches of the trees above them swaying in a branch-like way. Ravens flew about among them, and clouds of dust hovered like halos around the hooves of their steeds. Wiping sweat from his brow, Tyrion spoke to yet another minor ch Leggi tutto
Released ten years ago today! This is the review I did for the Sunday Express. It only appeared in hardcopy so I can't link it. Since it's a national newspaper and many of the readers may never have read a fantasy book, let alone the first four in the ASOIAF series, the review is less about this boo Leggi tutto
(B+) 78% | Good Notes: A mire of minutiae, pointless quarrels in its quiver, with birdshot aim, it's kitten-tame, building fights it can't deliver.
Purchased anew, and laid it beside her bed, Conflicting thoughts flying through her head. Afraid almost to crack the covers, read the pages, What if it was the last book? "No, More," she rages. What if it wasn't? How long the wait next time? Five years? Seven? Thirteen? Unlucky, even in rhyme. First I mus Leggi tutto
I'm blown away that someone could write a book so long in which nothing actually happens I wrote a longer review at http://allthenominees.blogspot.com But it says pretty much the same thing.
PROLOGUE He awoke to the warmth of sunlight on his face. At last the day had come. He stretched to work out the kinks in his joints and muscles and groaned at the throbbing in his head. On his nightstand lay a bottle of Dornish red, which he downed in one long swallow to clear his mind, wine dribblin Leggi tutto
