After the first book, this is by far my next favourite in the series. Heart-stopping, nail biting and completely unpredictable, this is unputdownable.

This installment's main focus is on King's Landing and the Lannisters.

The Screwtape Letters

“Self-assertion may deceive the ignorant for a time; but when the noise dies away, we cut open the drum, and find it was emptiness that made the music.”
Mary Elizabeth Braddon, Aurora Floyd

Mary Ann Shaffer
“I believe I am becoming pathetic. I'll go further, I believe that I am in love with a flower-growing, wood-carving quarryman/carpenter/pig farmer. In fact, I know I am. Perhaps tomorrow I will become entirely miserable at the thought that he doesn't love me back - may, even, care for Remy- but at this precise moment I am succumbing to euphoria. My head and stomach feel quite odd. ”
Mary Ann Shaffer, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

“I don't mean to mock the gods,
but Freyja seems to me a bitch.
- Hjalti Skjeggjason”
Robert Ferguson, The Hammer And The Cross: A New History Of The Vikings

“...space flight still had a long way to go to catch up with the safety record of the milkshake industry.”
Kevin Fong

Michael Cunningham
“Julian is bluff and sturdy, royal; he possesses a gracefully muscular, equine beauty so natural it suggests that beauty itself is a fundamental human condition and not a mutation in the general design. ”
